This week I have seen such a difference in the trees in our area. It almost seems as if they all sprouted leaves overnight. It is so nice to see everything greening up. Hopefully, the rains will continue to come throughout the summer and it won’t be as dry this year.
I had a nice surprise last week. I received an email from Bonnie Burch of the Rains County Leader and she said that someone had suggested she write her weekly article about me. Honestly, I was shocked. I don’t know why I would be interesting at all, other than the fact that I am the town gossip (haha). But, we had a nice telephone conversation and she said she had enough information from the interview to put together her article. It was nice getting to “meet her” over the phone and visit with her. The article will run in next Tuesday’s weekly edition of the Rains County Leader.
Friday night’s FFA Stew and Auction generated a good bit of revenue for our FFA chapter. Preliminary estimates come to $11,500 that was made from the auction. Sounds like one of the highest amounts we have raised in quite some time. I guess Mr. Watson is going out with a bang since this was his last stew and auction to be in charge of. I think everyone had a good time and, as always, the stew was great (both beef and chicken).
Happy birthday this week to Mary Burns on April 14; Hayley Wren and Jeremy Blackstead on April 15; Chase Taylor, Kathy (Garmon) Steele and Stephanie (Horton) Bullard on April 17; and Chandra Lee and Zach Crispin on April 19.
I know I’m falling down on my job because there are a few birthdays I neglected to mention last week. Happy belated birthday to Deanna Hasten on April 12 and Cherrie (George) Bessonett and Erma Harwell on April 13.
Happy anniversary to Billy and Jean Wren! This year marks the 56th anniversary since the date of their marriage on April 20, in Piedmont, Va.
