Get well wishes to Martha Robinson who was hospitalized last week for a few days.
Sunday the 9th was a special day for many veterans as the Nashville Zoo opened up for them and their relatives. Helping veteran Ernest Davis enjoy this special occasion were wife, Rita, Ernestine Tate (who had a great time and is looking good!), Kim and Callie Francis, Jennie, Brooklyn and Londyn Francis, Amanda, Allison and Waylon Francis, Angie, Hannah, and Justin Whited, and Megan Davis.
That same day at Prosperity Baptist Church, Tom Allen, Bro. Don Rigsby, Joe Turner, Ted Ray and Ryan Womack were recognized and thanked for serving our God and country.
That night, the youth of Prosperity hosted a soup meal and took charge of the Evening Worship Service with interpretative movements to several songs and testimonies by Bailey Hayes, Jordan Blackburn and Shelby Clayborn.
Tuesday night, Lisa Reed was on her way to Memphis with son, Zach Davenport, where they enjoyed a game between the Grizzlies and the LA Lakers took place at the FedEx Forum. Although as a Laker fan, she didn't like the loss but truly enjoyed the good time.

Basketball season as has begun. Thursday night the 6th was an away game with the Eastside Tigerettes and Tigers. The Lady Knights enjoyed a win while the boys worked hard but were unable to pull off a win.
Monday night the 10th was a home game with the Woodland Warriorettes and Warriors. Both local teams put up a good battle but both came away with a loss.
