Mrs. Bryant’s drama class performed their rendition of “The Love Knot” by Michael McFaden Monday night. I have seen them practice and rehearse their lines, but they blew me away with their performance for the public. They did a fantastic job! If they do half that good at the area meet on Friday I know they will have a great chance of advancing to the regional competition.
Friday will be the FFA Chapter’s Annual Stew & Auction. Please come by and treat yourself to a great big bowl of Lewis Russell’s signature Hopkins County stew, and of course feel free to spend some money and support the students. The stew and auction is such a big fundraiser for the FFA students. They use the money generated from the event to help pay for expenses that they incur throughout the year.
Mrs. Opal Burks’ funeral services took place Saturday at the Christian Church in Lone Oak with Brother Danny Calk conducting the services. Burial took place in Williams Chapel Cemetery in Lone Oak. Mrs. Opal (as she was often called) was born Opal Evelyn Jones on April 7, 1910, in Lone Oak to Ed and Lillie (Gore) Jones. She married Glen H. Burks on Aug. 20, 1932, in Miller Grove. He preceded her in death after 50 years of marriage. Mrs. Burks passed away March 28 in Sulphur Springs after an extended illness. She was active well into her 90s and was always full of energy. She was preceded in death by one niece, Sharon Tallant; a cousin; and numerous friends.
Happy birthday to Canyon Smith on April 3, Sharon Tallant and J.W. Ragan on April 6, Kylie Ridings on April 7 and Cole Burnett on April 8.
