Several people from Cowan or with Cowan connections, attended the Eastern District Association of Primitive Baptists Sept. 29–Oct. 1 at House’s Chapel near Surgoinsville, Tenn. Woodrow and Barbara Fields of Benham were there, working in the kitchen as usual. They had delicious meals.

John and Barbara Banks stayed with their daughter Tori and Rusty Akers, Callie and Ella, at nearby Talbot. They all attended.

Brad and Annie Dutton were there from Louisa. Driving back and forth were Rex and Tilda Fields, Charlie and Glennis Little, Bob and Ramona Caudill, and Robert, Kathy and Houston Sword. Also driving from Benham were Paul Jackson, Paula Early, and Orville and Sandy Perry. Saturday, Robert and Sherry Brown, Brad and Joe came from Jonesville, Tenn.

Carol Caudill, Linda Lucas and I stayed at the Caudill Lake House at Bean Station, much more pleasant and relaxing than a motel. We enjoyed the beautiful view sitting on the porch, walking down to the dock, picking up persimmons and pears, and visiting the Akerses.

The association was in a beautiful setting and the weather was ideal. It is always good to meet with our old friends from Tennessee, Virginia, Ohio and Kentucky, and we heard some wonderful preaching and singing.

Next year the association will be meeting at the Fairview Church in Bellbrook, Oh.
