The youth of Prosperity Baptist Church attended and ministered Friday at the Youth Crusade for Christ hosted by Calvary Baptist in Smithville.
Sunday was birthday day for our house. Celebrating with her special dessert (strawberry ice cream) was Adrianna Reed. Besides the "usual" family members present , extras were Lauryn Crawley and Jimmy Mingle.
Again several deaths affected this community this week. Connie Leyhew's uncle, Carlton Shirley passed away the 28th.
Esther Bobo lost her grandfather, Douglas Huddleston, Tuesday and we learned of the death of Ruby Pearl Tenpenny Thursday. Our condolences to each family member and loved one.
He was a native of Cannon County and well known throughout many counties as an auctioneer for Bob Parks and a director of DTC Communications. One who loved to have fun. Dwight Vinson lost his life in the storm that blew through here Wednesday night. Our sympathy to his family and many friends.
A big THANKS to all who came out and supported the Auburn Jr. Beta Horse Show held the 29th. They are looking forward to the National Convention which is being held this year in New Orleans, LA.
Kiley Hughes along with three others from Cannon County students were chosen for Academic Conference at the University of Tennessee. Three weeks in a row (UT Academic Conference, Jr. Camp, and UT Electric camp). Kiley's loves 4-H. She with the other three will be able to spend the week at UT learning and broadening their horizons in their fields chosen. Congratulations!!
