There are only a few birthdays to share this week. Happy birthday to Frank Weaver on Sept. 12, James Weaver and Jayden Arledge on Sept. 13 and Truman Renshaw on Sept. 14.
I’m a little late with this birthday, but Gabe Connor’s 18th birthday was this past week, on Sept. 9. The Flecker household celebrated with a party for Gabe on his special day. His step-mother is Renee Flecker Connor. I heard that everyone had a really nice time and enjoyed themselves. Happy 18th, Gabe — the next 10 years will fly by so enjoy them!
Another Sept. 9 birthday I missed was for Christi Garmon Cardwell. She celebrated her 40th birthday this year. She was surprised with a Bunco party at the home of her cousin Lori Potts McCullough on Sunday night. Relatives Lori McCullough, Marsha Potts, Cindy Garmon, Traci Moser, Gail Garmon and (in the words of Sara Garmon Price) MUCH YOUNGER sisters Cheryl and Sara were among the hostesses and guests! Many friends and family came to surprise Christi on this milestone in her life! Her Mamo, June Garmon, actually won the Bunco game and was the life of the party (as usual!).
Obviously Sept. 16 is a great day to have a wedding. I know of three different couples who share it as the day they exchanged their vows. Happy 39th anniversary to Dwayne and Kathy Wren, 33rd anniversary to Tim and Barbara Potts, and 28th anniversary to Dalyn and Bobby Beck.
Miller Grove’s elementary principal, Linda Bailey, was recently elected to the position of president of the Texas Elementary Principals and Supervisors Association for district 8. TEPSA represents over 5,800 pre-kindergarten through eighth grade school leaders. The organization was formed in 1917 and created to improve children’s futures by bettering education at the elementary level. I’m sure Mrs. Bailey will fill the position quite well. She has been a member of the association in good standing for several years now.
My family went to the Fall Festival Parade on Saturday. My little niece, Savanna Darrow, was in the float for the Sulphur Springs Centre for Dance, where she is taking dance lessons. I haven’t been to the parade in years and I really enjoyed it. There were several good floats, and the Sulphur Springs High School marching band did a great job. While I was there, I talked to Donna Poteet. She was there to see her daughter, Angela (aka Sissy), ride in the float for all of the past Cover Girls. I remember her being in the Cover Girl competition. I knew she would win because she was (and is) such a determined person. It seems like just yesterday Sissy and I were in school together.
Mrs. Bryant’s drama students had their second annual wax museum in the high school Monday. The students portrayed different Disney cartoon characters. Wesley Potts, Holly Miller, Madison Penny, Kailey Hyatt, Destiny Soto, Chelsea Smith, Dylan Sims, Kelsey Steele, Forrest Hinton, Patrick Dial, Cody Marler and Brittney Rivera were among the students who participated this year. Mrs. Bryant is planning a few other projects for the drama department throughout the year. She is working on a Christmas show for the community and maybe later in the year a “dinner and theater” show, with proceeds going toward the drama department.
