The number of folks getting the coronavirus vaccination continues to increase and the virus positive test rate continues to decrease in our area.
As our photos show, County Liners are more comfortable venturing out and are enjoying community events such as the Clarksbury “Trunk or Treat” and the Society “Hayride & Soup Supper Fundraiser.”
Piney Grove AME Zion Church will have a special worship service at 11 a.m. Sunday, Nov. 14 in observance of Veteran’s Day and remembrance of veterans past and present. Church member and veteran Vonda Denise Holland will be the special speaker. Everyone is invited.
The Society Baptist Quilt Ministry will meet at 9 a.m. Wednesday, Nov. 17 in the fellowship hall. The group invites others.
Thursday, Nov. 11 is Veterans Day. Be sure to thank a veteran for their service to our country. Look for our County Line “Veterans Tribute” next week.
Upcoming events include a Thanksgiving fellowship dinner after the 11 a.m. worship Sunday, Nov. 21, at Piney Grove.
Zack Cartner was one of six members of the North Iredell High School Chapter of Future Farmers of America (FFA) awarded the American FFA Degree at the 94th National FFA Convention and Expo on Oct. 27-30. The National FFA Organization honors yearly those members who show the utmost dedication through their desire to develop potential for premier leadership, personal growth, and career success via agricultural education. It is the top degree in a 4-tier degree program that recognizes individual achievement. Zack is a son of Mike and Jenny Cartner and grandson of Nancy Henderson Cartner and the late Perry Cartner of NC Hwy 901. Zack, all of us in County Line congratulate you upon achieving this award.
Carol W. Holton has improved from her knee surgery and has been in rehab at Davie Nursing and Rehabilitation Center of Mocksville since Thursday of last week. Alice C. Waugh remains in rehab at Davie Nursing and Rehabilitation Center of Mocksville.
Join us in prayer for the Lord’s divine healing upon Carol, Alice, and other residents who are having health problems. Remember in prayer Mildred B. Benfield; her sister-in-law Helen Burdette died last Sunday. Continue to pray for the many families in our area affected by the coronavirus and its variants.
