A correction from last week's column - Sharon Ann Fann was Terry Thomas' niece, not his sister. She was called "Sissy".
This community was hit hard again last week by deaths. A. C. Bobo passed away following a short illness. Our sympathy to Bobby Bobo and family.
Charles Jackson Conner, Kathy Davenport's father, died following a lengthy illness. Our prayers for her and the family.
Bobbie Faye Hill Hale lost her battle with cancer. She grew up in this community graduating from Auburn High School. Condolences to the many family members in and around here.
Tim Reed's birthday was celebrated at our house Sunday, the 11th. All family members were present plus an extra, Case Isenhart. Strawberry cake was his choice of desserts.
Monday, January 12th was a special night at the Roger Turney Gym. A "sea of green" welcomed fans, players, cheerleaders and the like. This to help Edith McReynolds in her fight with cancer.
It was also Eighth Grade Night meaning not only last home game of the season but the last home game for those "moving on up". Recognized for the number of years they have been a part of the team were Alyssa Williams on the girl's roster, Stone Basham, Colin Crawley, TJ George, Noah Logsdon, Alex Ramsey and Justin Whited from the boy's team and Rachel Hale, Tyger Kennedy, Isabella Russo, and Alana Whited member of the cheerleading squad. Good luck as you enter your high school phase.
Tuesday night (tonight) at the Macon Co. vs. CCHS high school home game, there will be another "sea of green" for Edith. It was originally planned for Tuesday night but due to the outstanding demand for the shirts, it was rescheduled. A big thanks to all.
Those coming up with birthdays this week are Rebecca Bryan Tate, Tommy Melton and Dean Vantrease all on the 22nd. Moving over to the 25th it's noted that Bobby Francis and Bill Fletcher. Ending on the 27th is Charles Robert "Bodie" Workman who turns 3. Happy birthday to all of you.
On January 26th back in 1991, a beautiful young lady took on the "chore" of married life with Todd Hollandsworth - man what a chore! Happy 24th to a very special couple.
