Historical Society preparing fall issue

The seniors from the Colson Center will be selling hog dog dinners on Friday. Call the center if you want them delivered, or you may come by and eat at the center. Linda is making her pina colada cake and it is so good! The phone number for the center is 855-9977. We look forward to seeing you there.

Ella Sparks, Jean Cook and I had lunch at the Grill Thursday, and then went to Ella’s house and put the Historical Society’s fall issue together. This book is chockfull of stories about our people, and many old pictures. If you aren’t a member, you need to join. The books for members are great. We do two books a year for our members.

Friday, Elisha Baker, Debbie Isaac, Joann Hall, Opal Fouts, Connie Cook, Linda Sturgill, Maxine Quillen, Frog Logan, Nora Logan, Brenda Seals, Tracey Combs and I went to Jenkins. We met so many of our friends there. The food was fantastic. It was so good to see Rachel Breeding again.

After we left Jenkins, we stopped at the vendors mall and the fruit market in Neon. We found some nice things at the vendors mall.

Joann Hall had her eye surgeries and is doing well. Her son-in-law bought a pontoon, and they are enjoying the lake. The grandkids are really tickled. They love the water. Congratulations on the new ride, Ronnie and Nancy.

Our deepest sympathy to the families of Monek Johnson, Clyde Lucas and Ronnie Gilliam. Ronnie was a classmate and lived in Mississippi. May God bless each of these families.

Get well wishes to Delilah Baker; she is having problems with her feet. Also, hope Billie Stansberry continues to improve. She had a birthday this past week and we wish her the best.

John Shepherd is also having health problems. I talked to Gail at Food City and she said they had been to the doctor again. Hopefully they will find something to help him.

On Saturday, Mary Gilliam, Jean Cook and I attended the Ewens Cook reunion at Carr Creek Lake. What a great bunch of folks. A feast was enjoyed by everyone. The children were so well behaved and had a good time.

Marlene Dawson was there from South Carolina. She has published a book on the family of Anderson Cook and it is so well done. This lady has so much proof and will continue her research. Roy Cook brought his pictures and we all enjoyed them. Marlene had her computer and copier so she made copies for those who wanted them. They had lots of giveaways, and an auction. Mary was thrilled to buy a jar of Julie’s homemade apple butter.

Julie Amburgey brought home canned apple butter, pear honey and dried beans to auction. She is so spry. I hope they invite me again next year.

Patty Cook broke her leg and couldn’t attend, and everyone missed her. Her daughter Mary does a good job with organizing the reunion. Thanks, Mary!

I received a complimentary copy of a book on the Caudill family. I haven’t had a chance to read it yet but it looks like a well-written book. I will have details later. I love to read and I guess you all know how much I love genealogy.
