There hasn’t been too much activity in the community this week. I hope the old saying “no news is good new” is true.
This week, happy birthday wishes go out to: Miranda Frobish and Chris Abbott on Jan. 13, Mary Lou (Woods) Hoover on Jan. 14, Misty Briggs and Shyan Harris on Jan. 16, and Dalyn (Petty) Beck and Clark May on Jan. 17.
Shyan will be celebrating her 20th birthday this week. And I hope she has a great birthday! Her parents are Vicki and Jarmon Harris, who live in the County Line community. Shyan is a little girl with a big heart. She helps with our PK students at the school and is involved with children's ministries at Freedom Church of God.
Clark and I have known each other nearly all of our lives. We were in the same class in school. He is just a couple of months older than I am. He is now living in Greenville with his wife, Jessica (Wagley) May, and works at L-3 Communications. If you don’t know Clark, I’ll bet you remember his parents, Darrell and Karen May. The Mays (who were relatives of the McGowan family) have been in Miller Grove for many years.
As most of you know, the school was broken into over the holiday break, and Mrs. Stillwagoner’s fifth grade class had an idea on how to make some of the money back that was stolen. They decided to have a bake sale Monday, and it was a big success. The parents donated the cookies, brownies, etc. to the class to sell. Mrs. Stillwagoner told me that they came up with the idea by themselves. “They just wanted to help the school,” she said. I, for one, am very proud of them for wanting to lend a helping hand where they could. That act of kindness just shows what caring individuals their parents have raised. Good job, fifth grade!
James and Margaret Ragan’s 50th Anniversary reception was very nice Saturday. A few of Miller Grove’s past and present residents were in attendance: Maye (Duvall) Ryon, Wilma (Duvall) Sanders, Elaine Garmon, Faye Tipps, J.W. and Elaine Ragan, Bro. David and Becky Burns, and many family members.
Sharon Tallant is doing some better since her cancer diagnosis. She is still teaching in Grapevine and frequents the Miller Grove Methodist Church on Sundays. She also cares for her aunt, Opal Burks, who is now in her upper 90s. Mrs. Burks lives near Lone Oak and has claimed that her family was the original Miller family that Miller Grove was named after.
