The changing weather delays early gardening, but there is still time to get plants growing, and the ground needs to be warmer anyway. Trees and shrubs have an abundance of leaves and foilage the past week. Lilacs are pretty now.

Sympathy to the families of Don Rackley and Jarrett Nesbit, who passed away last week, among others in other areas.

The potluck dinner at Lilly Ridge Church Sunday was enjoyed by several folks who stayed.

Maxine Smith visited her neighbors, Ralph and Dorothy Anderson one day last week.

Friendly Neighbors Extension Club member met Thursday of last week at the Tecumseh Fire House and “tacked” a large comforter (quilt).

A talented quilter had his newest quilt for us to see at church Sunday evening. Ethel Deweese cuts out small pieces of printed cotton material and her husband quilts them on his large quilting  maching. He says he gives them away to family members and others. Pastor Dale Roberts was given one that Ted had finished.

Lilly Ridge Church fall revival will be October 6th through October 10th each evening with Bro. Robert Roberts of Ava as evangelist. The monthly business meeting was held following Sunday evening service. It was voted to donate to youth camps coming up in June, and other business was taken care of.

Best wishes to those who have had surgery recently and other health concerns. Among those are Tim Campbell, Leroy Friend and others from this area.

Marsha Lyon attended Sunday evening services and reported she was somewhat improved. She had several surgeries and appreciated all the prayer on her behalf.

Fruit trees are full of their fruit and it is hoped a freeze doesn’t happen.

Best wishes to all who read our news this week. Perhaps there will be more news by next week.
