Ernestine Tate was rushed to the hospital Sunday. We are thankful to learn that she has improved and has been discharged to a rehabilitation facility. Prayers for her and her family.
May 3rd was a day for lots of happenings:
Adrianna Reed enters the teen years the 12th. She celebrated early on that day with a pecan pie cheesecake. Gathering at our house to help her eat it were Ray, Anita, Dustin and Daxton Patrick, Kyle, Shannon, Kullon and Shiloh Patrick, Sam, Bethany, Rylon and Amaieah Morrison, Case Isenhart and Tim, DeAnna and Alayna Reed. Of course P-pa and I got a taste!
The "Daily News Journal" held their 22nd Annual Sports Awards Banquet that night at the Embassy Suites in Murfreesboro. Congratulations to Hannah Whited who received the Most Valuable Player in Cross Country. What a runner!!
And members of Auburn Baptist Church visited, ministered and sang to the residents of Woodbury Health and Rehabilitation Center.
Thursday, the 7th, it was field day for all of Auburn Elementary students. Those in Kindergarten through fourth grades enjoyed touring and learning about "washing, churning and learning days" at the Oaklands Historic House Museum in Murfreesboro.
The "upper" grades, fifth through 8th, enjoyed traveling to Nashville where they took in the Country Music Hall of Fame.
Another week closer to the Auburn School Reunion of 2015, Saturday, June 6th. Be sure to contact anyone who has had any connection to Auburn School both past and present and invite them to this "every -5-year" event. There is no program planned, any speeches will be "impromptu" (off-the-cuff) and may or may not be interesting!! Eat with the local Lion's Club or not, that's up to you - we encourage you to come and enjoy a good time reminiscing.
