Mae Boggs had a week with her children, Kelly, Becky and Tim, in Lexington and Louisville. They show her a good time while she is there and she really enjoys being with them. She is looking forward to having her daughter, Sandra, moving back to Louisville from Chicago.

“Who can find a virtuous woman?” Prov. 3:10. Well, some can still be found on Cowan. We have one good example whose “children rise up and call her blessed” (Prov. 31:1), and rightly so. She “looked well to the ways of her household” (Prov. 31:27), and raised a fine family of children. Phoebe has always been an inspiration to the whole neighborhood and we wish her many more happy years. Also celebrating birthdays were her son, Rex; her granddaughter, Debbie; and great-granddaughter, Arianna.

The Little Cowan Primitive Baptist Church had a wonderful Thanksgiving meeting. Our regular Thursday night prayer meeting was good with our own preachers, Woodrow Fields and Johnny Banks.

Friday night we had visiting ministers from Tennessee. Terry Sizemore, the moderator of our association, with his wife Peggy, and Charley Johnson, his wife Kay and children Samantha and David. They both preached wonderfully and both families sang beautifully.

FIELD TRIP — Cowan Head Start had an educational field trip to the sheriff's office on Oct. 28 and 29. Twenty-one children attended, accompanied by staff and parents Kathy Trent, Dinah Fields, and Mary Coyle. The children enjoyed touring the sheriff's office and of course the main attraction, the patrol cars. Seventy members of the family of Phoebe Fields gathered at the Cowan Community Center to celebrate her 90th birthday.
