The scene at the Goodhope General Baptist Church Friday evening was a big fish fry, music and fellowship. Pastor David Welch brought 70 lbs. of fish. No he didn’t catch them, he bought them. Besides David the cooks were Kenny Goin, Mike Woodall and Jerry Hawkins. There might have been others while I was inside. Laverne Hall, Janice Hawkins and Anna Goin were frying potatoes and etc. Other people brought food. We sure had a feast. While all the above was going on, Glen Dale Robertson , Art Hampton, Danny Johnson and a man and his wife and children from Gainesville were picking and singing outside. We all went inside at 7 p.m. to eat. After eating we took chairs out to listen to more music. The Lord provided perfect weather for us. We didn’t get a head count, but estimated 75 to 80 people. Several came up after the ball game at Plainview.
