We know the fall season is here when Pancake Days start up at Meadows of Dan. I always loved working there and seeing the people. I’m still celebrating my birthday, getting cards, and Arlene Shough gave me a beautiful bracelet. The Sages fund-raiser went really well, and the people who ate lunch after church said the fried chicken dinner was delicious. The other Saturday I went for a visit to see “Sandy Man” and his owner now, Lester Harris. We had a very nice conversation and I got to meet his other dog also. It was a friendly dog also. Hopefully, I can visit again soon. Please put Pastor Joe Cerino on your prayer list as he faces surgery. The Soup Kitchen opened at its new location in a rental home donated by Lock Boyce. I loved the house. It was so nice and clean—just a perfect little home.
Pastor Keith Vernon had the dedication. Richard Rogers from WHEO was there, and I was so happy to meet Holly C. Kozelsky and am hoping to see her again in December. It was a good day. Also it was nice to see Locke Boyce again. Thanks again for what you did to help the Soup Kitchen. I finally got my flu shot. I don’t like shots of any kind, but the nurse did a good job. While there I got to visit with one of my favorite people—Sue Hall. Heartfelt sympathy goes to the family of Rebecca (Becky) Clifton Turman. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
Also heartfelt sympathy to the family of Hazel Barnard Helms. She was so nice and I always enjoyed seeing her. Keep the family in your prayers. I was saddened to hear of the death of Dorn Belcher, who was our friend and neighbor for many years. My love and heartfelt sympathy go to the family.
It was good to hear from Mary Ann. She’s been quite busy since she returned home to D.C. She’s keeping up with the news back here in The Enterprise.

Food for thought
As the sun rises in the mornings, it is easy to see why light is a blessing—it is essential for light and growing things—yet spiritual light is even more amazing because it produces goodness, righteousness and truth.
