It surely was nice to go to Rocky Knob Park for the annual picnic with the Pentecostal Holiness Church of Patrick Springs. They do that every year. It was so cool up there, so we got to beat the heat for awhile and enjoyed some delicious food.
Pastor Marion Poythress and some family members recently enjoyed a trip to Washington, D.C. I know they enjoyed it a lot. When I worked, I got to go thanks to Dudley Walker of Bassett-Walker. The highlight of my trip was going out with a Marine and putting a wreath on the unknown soldier’s grave. That was so special.
Beverly Woody came by church the other evening and left some paper towels for the soup kitchen. Van and Donna Rowe really appreciated it. It was a nice surprise.
