Kathy Lennon of the Pilot Club of Sulphur Springs would like to invite all ladies to their annual Spring Extravaganza, which includes a program, brunch, silent auction and raffle. The event will be held at the Hopkins County Regional Civic Center on Saturday, March 24, from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Sherrie Kulwicki, founder of Firmly Planted Ministries, Inc., will be sharing her passion for all women to experience love for God and for one another. Tickets are $20 and may be purchased online at www.sspilotclub.org or from any Pilot Club member. They can also be purchased at the Civic Center on Houston Street. The Pilot Club only has one fundraiser a year, and the money is used for their many worthy projects, with their main focus being on those that benefit persons with brain-related illnesses or disorders. Kathy said that, even though the event is for ladies only, men can also help out by buying a raffle ticket for a stainless steel grill and patio furniture. Raffle tickets are $10 and you don't have to be present to win. One raffle ticket is included in the cost of the ticket for the Spring Extravaganza. For more information, you can contact Monica Crouch at 903-439-7098, Sherry Moore at 903-439-4062 or Kathy Lennon at 903-885-3124, extension 122. They will also be happy to help make sure that you get your ticket(s).

Yvonne Weir, Brenda Allen and I left on Saturday morning and drove to Oxford, Ala. The next day we continued our trip to Savannah, Ga., where we stayed in the historic district until Wednesday morning. On Sunday afternoon, we enjoyed a late lunch at Paula Deen's The Lady and Sons restaurant and then took a horse-drawn carriage tour. We took the Old Savannah Trolley Tour on Monday, and then Brenda's niece, Shelby (Allen) Higgins, who lives in Savannah with her husband, Tanner, met us for a tour of the Owens-Thomas house. We learned a lot about the history of Savannah and their memorable characters. After the tour we all went to the Boar's Head on River Street for lunch, then we went to the Telfair Art Museum and the beautiful Cathedral of St. John the Baptist. Later we shopped and had dinner at Vic's on the River. On Tuesday, Shelby took us to The Wilkes House where we enjoyed a delicious family-style meal. After lunch, we drove out to Tybee Island to see the lighthouse and the ocean, and then shopped on the island and back in Savannah at the City Market. That night we had dinner at The Chart House before starting our return journey.
