The Finley River is up again as I write this weekly report, you can see that it is almost ready to cross the bridge. It sure did rain a lot around here. However, we are hopeful that it is a nice sign that spring is here.
It was a busy weekend as I attended the benefit for Jerry Zwally. The benefit, which was held at our church was well attended and some $2700 was raised at the event. The music was great and it was so nice to see so many participate from across Webster County.
Friday night, I attended a birthday dinner at Lambert’s for oldest grandson, Nicholas. It was nice to eat with our family and to watch him enjoy his special day. It was kind of funny, though. There were some folks from Marshfield there and he waved at several of them. The man throwing the rolls thought that he wanted some rolls and kept throwing them at him. That must be why he was so full and could not eat all of his meal!
It was nice to see Carl and Betty Atwood in services on Sunday morning. They have been such good neighbors and are always willing to lend a helping hand.
I am also glad to hear that grandson, Johnny Inman had a great birthday. Johnny is one of the hardest workers and we always enjoy him. Happy Birthday!
Mark your calendars now for the Webster County Opry’s 14th anniversary, which will be held on Friday, April 1 at the Rogersville Area Senior Center. The preview show begins at 6 p.m. and this will be a great anniversary performance. Grandson, Nicholas will serve as master of ceremonies and many of the shows original charter members will be present. The Opry remains, the longest running music show in Webster County.
Remember the scholarship that has been established to honor Rev. and Mrs. Roy Cantrell at Marshfield Christian School.
Have a great week and hope to see you out this way in the near future.
