Our County Line community continues to enjoy warm fall days as we said good-bye to Halloween, church homecomings, fall festivals, and Daylight Savings Time.  As photos show; folks of all ages enjoyed these events. We hope everyone made sure their fire and carbon monoxide warning devices were in good working condition.

Andy Cartner will conduct a program on “Medicare Supplement” at 11 a.m. Tuesday, Nov. 15 in the Clarksbury Methodist fellowship hall. Lunch will be provided.  Call Andy on 704-546-3000.

The Young at Heart of Society Baptist will meet at 11:30 a.m. Tuesday in the fellowship hall.  The group invites other senior adults in our community.

The Baptist Men of Society continue to collect monetary donations to buy groceries for Thanksgiving dinners for families of need in our area.  For more information, to recommend a family of need in our community, or to donate; please call Treasurer John Nantz on 704-929-8199.

Our community sends get-well wishes to Betty Cartner, Jimmy Cartner, and Imogene Stroud. Betty had heart problems last Saturday afternoon, was taken to Clemmons Medical Center, and transferred Sunday to the cardiac unit at Forsyth Medical Center.  Jimmy has been at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center. Imogene became sick Saturday night, was taken to Davie Medical Center, and transferred to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center.

Betty Smith is recuperating at home. Alice C. Waugh remains in rehab at Davie Nursing and Rehabilitation.

Join us in prayer for the Lord’s divine healing upon Betty C., Jim, Imogene, Betty S., Alice, and other residents who are having health problems.  Continue to pray for the families affected by the crowd rush in South Korea, families affected by Ian and Fiora; and those affected by Covid-19 and its variants.  Continue to pray that Ukrane will defeat the attempted Communist takeover.

Word has just been received of the death of Priscilla Seamon Dwiggins.  She died early Sunday afternoon at Gordon Hospice House of Statesville.  Lambert Funeral Home of Mocksville (336-751-1100) is serving the family.
