Virginia Brown’s family enjoys being together


Virginia Brown and nieces, Carol Caudill, Linda Lucas, and Doris Banks, visited Virginia’s sister, Mattie Vern Banks, in Elizabethtown.

On the way they stopped at Liberty and picked up Verna Rayburn, who had a nice lunch for them. Mattie Vern’s son and daughter-inlaw, Russell and Judy, joined them for a delicious supper she and Judy had prepared.

It was a wonderful visit with talking, reminiscing, laughing, crying, eating, April Fool’s pranks and some good games of Hand and Foot. (Mattie Vern and Linda were the champs.)

On the return trip they stopped at Hammy’s Apple Farm and bought apples, apple butter, sorghum and fried apple pies.

Elizabeth Fairchild and Cammie Gilley attended the Little Dove Church at Eolia. They heard some really good singing by Jerry Banks and Darrell Caudill.

Another recipe from Billie Ann, kraut salad: Combine in a bowl 2 tsp. celery seed, 1 cup chopped onion, 1 cup sliced celery, 1 cup chopped carrots, 1 cup chopped green and red pepper, 2 cans shredded kraut washed and drained. Combine in saucepan 2 cups sugar, 1/2 cup vinegar, 1 cup vegetable oil. Bring to boil and pour over kraut mixture. Store in refrigerator. Very good.

Everyone at Little Cowan Church is happy to have Barbara Banks back at home and church after her illness.

Elsie Boggs and Eddie and Paula Lowe spent a day shopping in Pikeville.

There will be a celebration of Virginia Brown’s 90th birthday at the Little Cowan Primitive Baptist Church on Saturday, April 18, at 2 p.m. Everyone is invited to attend. No gifts, please.

Marilyn Banks of Columbus, Ind., recently visited relatives on Cowan. While here, she saw her aunts, Virginia and Elsie, and Anna Yonts took her shopping. Tammy and Bryon Banks had dinner for her at their house on Kingdom Come.

Marilyn, Carol Caudill and Linda Lucas, spent several days at Marilyn and Pat’s summer home in Pulaski County.
