School is back in session and it's time to get back to normal activities.
Saturday the 19th, the children, grandchildren and all the "out-laws" of Carl and Lois Mingle gathered in the Recreation Center at Auburn Baptist. There were 40 plus or minus of these "kissin' kin" who gathered in for some good food and catching up.
Saturday, the 26th the combined Hughes Christmas and Clyde and Anna Belle Bogle Hughes family reunion was held in the Auburn Baptist Church Fellowship Hall. Hosting the event was their oldest daughter, Inette Hughes Gunter. Having the event here was special to her as she shared memories of how she, her late sister, JoAnn Hughes Nichols and late husband, William Gunter, came to know Christ. All were baptized in Hurricane Creek. JoAnn, who loved Christmas and family, passed away in February of this year and William had passed in June of 2013 so this reunion was extra special to the family.
Lots of good food, pictures and memories were shared among those in attendance which included Inette, Lindsay, Dona, Savannah and Caroline Gunter, Michael McClure, Tyler Bailey, WR Nichols, Julie Fitts, JB and Ardana Hughes, J.C and Joan Hughes, Cody and Kayla Hughes, Jason and Jennifer Brown, Carly and Ben, Sam and Cindy Garrison, Kirsten and Dixie and a surprise visit by cousin, Mary Hughes.
