Norwood Gleanings


Hasn’t the weather been just great for October? There is a scripture that talks about in the end of times that the seasons will all be running together. That makes me wonder if this will be the year that the Lord looks down and says, yuck, and comes back. Just a thought I have.

Well, if He doesn’t, here is some dates to remember and pencil in on your calendars.

October 31 will be the last day of walnut hulling.

October 29, 5 p.m. at City Hall, there will be activities hosted by Tim Thornton, part of the Betterment Club for the kids. Come dressed up for the costume contest, playing games. Then at dark, run over to the Nazarene Church and fill up your basket with goodies because that’s when they are having their trunk or treat.

The next Betterment Club meeting will be November 14 at 6:30 p.m. at Norwood Housing.

Our election will be at Nazarene Church from 6 to 7 on November 8. There are amendments and people to vote for so get your paper, read the way they word them, and come prepared to vote.

The Christmas parade is on the 19th at 11 a.m. and afterwards there will be chili and the school carnival will be going on the same day in the multi-purpose room. So that is exciting.

I have to comment on a poem I read last week in the paper on James Bradshaw. It was written by Teresia Smith and it was great! “A Rich Man Without Gold,” that was our friend, James, and he is missed very much.

Robert Denzel came home to check on a few things at his house because he has been staying with his dad, just to find that someone broke into his home and stole a bunch of tools. His neighbor had a refrigerator taken off of his front porch too. So beware, there are thieves among us. Neighbors all help one another and keep your eyes peeled to catch them in the act.

Last week I told you that the old church on the main strip across from the park has been sold. It will be a home to women that want help from any addictions. It is Christian based and they are going to have an auction, but first they are going to clean up some rooms. Their cleaning day will be Friday night at 6 p.m. and Saturday all day. If you could lend a hand, that would be great. There are two women there now, but they hope to house 15.

I went to a local restaurant to eat and this was hanging on the wall: “Grudges are a waste of perfect happiness. Laugh when you can, apologize when you should, and let go of what you can’t change.”

Any news, call me 576-7353.

Until next week, God bless our little town.
