Irene Day looking for fall white beans

Big Cowan

Our sympathy goes out to the family of Gregory Collins of Camp Branch who was killed in a car accident last week at Dry Fork. I attend the same church with his cousin, Arlene Taylor. They have had a lot of deaths in their family lately so keep all of them in your prayers.

Well, looks like the month of March started out like a lion so hopefully it goes out like a lamb.

A late happy birthday to Audrey Hammock of North Vernon, Ind., on March 1 as well as her nephew, Archie Joe Maggard, son of Bill and Agnes Maggard from Columbus, Ind. Archie and his wife, Pat, were home and Bill’s birthday was March 3 so they all celebrated at a surprise birthday party.

Archie Joe had surgery on his wrist. He is doing OK. Keep all of them in your prayers.

Bill wants to come home to see his sister, Barbara, who lives at Letcher Manor. Neither one of them is in very good health and it is hard for them to travel. Bill is on oxygen all the time and Agnes has bad health.

Loreva Fields and daughter Theresa Sturgill have gone to Indiana for Anthony’s surgery. He had a heart blockage of 100 percent on one side and another partial blockage on the other side. Hope everything goes well.

Theresa and Charles Sturgill are going to be grandparents in August. Their son, Allen, and his wife are expecting their first child. I saw Theresa buying baby clothes. Bet they are excited.

I saw Mary Lou Fields and Jim Snell out and about. It was really good to see them back on the mend.

My uncle, Isom Fields, came over from Morristown, Tenn., for the Sam Fields viewing. He stopped by and visited and ate supper with us. He brought me Darlene’s chocolate gravy recipe. I am looking forward to fixing it. I had it at their home several years ago and really liked it.

I also saw Sam Fields’s ex-wife, Martha, and son Sammie, from Lawrenceburg, Ind., and daughter, Ellen, of Pennsylvania. I hadn’t seen them since they were younger.

My aunt, Irene Day, would like to buy some fall white beans if anyone has them. Call her at 633-5312.

The benefit singing and dinner went real well, as well as the hot dog dinner. They are raising money to build a building to put furniture in for those in need. It will be filled with about any piece of furniture anyone would need in an emergency or if they have a fire. So everyone pray about this, it will be helping our community. If anyone would like to donate money toward this project, please call Johnny Collier at 633-0995 or call me at 633- 0439 and I will make sure the Freewill Baptist Church of Whitesburg, located at Whitco, will get the money. We are also starting a food pantry.

We had lots of good singers recently. It started at 7 p.m. and lasted until 1:30 a.m. They are planning on having a benefit singing and dinner the first Saturday of every month, starting at 6 p.m.

If you would like to come and sing, feel free, or just come and enjoy the singing.

The Cowan Community Center also had a potluck dinner and square dance. Hopefully that went well also.

Mike Rayburn is doing much better having surgery. Keep him in your prayers.

Well, everyone, have a good week and be good to one another. Attend the church of your choice.
