The annual North Hopkins School Homecoming Game will be held on Friday night. The Homecoming Queen will be crowned during half-time of the varsity boys' game.

Friends and family gathered at Lone Star Cafe in Commerce for a send-off dinner for Kadee Melton and Julia Tamsma on Friday night, the 15th. Kadee will be returning to Texas A&M in College Station, while Julia returns to the University of Texas. Kevin and Dee Melton of Tira, Dean and Margaret Eudy and Ted and Judy Carrington of Cooper; Jeannie, Bryce, Baylee and Kylee Graves of Bonham; and Larey and DeLeen Melton of Commerce enjoyed dinner with the girls.

Regina Taylor of Sulphur Springs and I attended the Women of Grace meeting with Yvonne Weir and her mother, Alice Hall, on Saturday morning. We enjoyed a good lesson and delicious potluck lunch at the First Assembly of God Church in Cooper. That afternoon Robert and Yvonne, dressed in their tie-dyed t-shirts, went to a "flower-power" birthday party in Yantis for Brenda Allen. Yvonne reports, "It was great fun!"

On Saturday night Robert, Yvonne, Wesley and Acie and Kiegan Sheehan went to Mike and Dacy Campbell's campsite at Cooper Lake State Park. They enjoyed the campfire and roasting marshmallows. Dacy, Mike and Elise attended church with Yvonne and Alice on Sunday morning.

William (Billy) Moss has asked for prayer. He is in Louisiana and is very home sick. He would like for everyone to pray that he can come home this year. He would appreciate letters from his friends. His address is: D.W.C.C. #535371, William (Billy) Moss, 670 Bell Hill Rd., Homer, LA 71040.

If you know Billy and could take the time to send him a note of encouragement it would surely lift his spirit.

After many months, too much rain and other roadblocks, Tommy and Patti Wiebold finally got to spend their first night in their new home on Farm Road 1536 Saturday night. Tommy's cousin, Rene Skala from Des Moines, Iowa came to visit last Monday to help with the move. She returned home on Sunday to snow and much colder weather.

Suzan Miller and Sandra Wester went on a short trip to Harrisonville, Missouri on Monday. There was still snow beside the road and in piles in the cities in northern Oklahoma and Missouri. On the return trip they took back roads through Oklahoma. Sandra says, "One road is marked for a return trip in the spring when the scenery will be much prettier." Wednesday morning they drove through Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge and saw lots of ducks and Canadian snow geese. There was still snow on the ground and that, too, has been marked for a return trip in the spring. They arrived home Wednesday afternoon.

Joyce Johnson, of Mesquite, spent a few days with Troy and Georgia Smith last week. Mary Rawson also visited with them.

Chip and I went to Broken Bow on Saturday, Jan, 17, and visited with Jim, Sandra, Thomas and Grace Vaughn. Grace (Chip's mother) came home with us and stayed until Saturday, the 23rd. During her stay, Grace celebrated her birthday with John and Linda Vaughn and their family on Sunday night and with Chip and me and our family on Monday night. She spent the day with Tim Vaughn on Tuesday and visited Kathryn Brandenburgh on Wednesday afternoon. On Friday evening, Chip's sister, Linda Ellen Vaughn of Dallas, came for a visit. She and Grace visited Susan Vaughn on Saturday morning and then Linda took Grace back to Oklahoma and spent the rest of the weekend with her.
