Here are a few birthdays: Derick Petty on April 25; Mary Lou Akins on April 26; Fred Moseley Jr. on April 28; and Dwayne Wren, Natalie (Darrow) Stuckey, and Darren Renshaw on April 29.
My little niece, Savanna, had her first birthday on April 25. She had a party on Sunday afternoon with several friends and family members. In attendance were James and Kayla Weaver, Lacey and Lexi Rainey, Mollie and Bobby Plunk, and of course her aunt and uncles, grandparents and great-grandmother (Lela Darrow). She was able to open a few of her gifts by herself. I think her favorite part of the party was the cake. They served a strawberry cake and ice cream. She got it all over her face and in her hair!
Happy 11th anniversary to Trudy Mae (Dickens) and Harold Mayers on April 29. Trudy’s grandson, Cole Burnett, will be getting married next month. Cole and I were in the same class in school when he went to Miller Grove. Cole turned 27 earlier this month, and I will be 27 next month.
Saturday will be Miller Grove Cemetery’s annual Memorial Day Services. I have heard that we will have a good line-up as far has who will be holding the services. Coy Johnson will be the master of ceremonies and Lisa (Renshaw) Oler will lead the singing, but I haven’t heard who will deliver the sermon. I guess that can be a surprise. If you have family buried in the cemetery, be sure to come. There will be a morning service, and families will bring lunch to be served on the grounds at noon (if it isn’t raining).
Speaking of the cemetery, I was sorry to hear about Velina Earnheart passing away. She was the daughter of Artimus and Martha Clifton. She was born June 14, 1942, in Dallas. Her mother, Martha, just passed away last February. Mrs. Earnheart left this world on the April 23 in Sulphur Springs. Her funeral took place Monday morning at 10 a.m. with interment following in Miller Grove Cemetery. She is survived by her husband, James Ray Earnheart, her father, and several other family members.
The baseball boys lost Friday’s game against Cumby, which knocked them out of being able to go to the playoffs.
Valedictorian and salutatorian names have been released this week for junior high and high school graduates of 2010. Congratulations to seniors Thomas Renshaw (salutatorian) and Chance Lee (valedictorian). The eighth grade graduating class actually has two salutatorians this year. Co-salutatorians are Patrick Covington and Nathan George. Valedictorian will be Mark Allen.
Our superintendent, Steve Johnson, received word this week of an honor bestowed on our elementary principal. Mrs. Linda Bailey has been named “TEPSA of the Year” for district 8. TEPSA stands for Texas Elementary Principals and Supervisors Association. There are only 20 recipients of this award throughout the state. The TEPSA organization was established in 1917 to improve education on the elementary level. She will also attend the TEPSA awards banquet in Austin this June. Congratulations Mrs. Bailey!
