Wesley Chapel United Methodist Church will serve breakfast in the Fellowship Hall on Saturday, Jan. 21, from 6:30-10 a.m.  Donations will be accepted for the meal that includes country ham, sausage, scrambled eggs, grits, red-eye gravy, sawmill gravy, baked apples, homemade biscuits, jelly and coffee. Come to Pino and enjoy a good country breakfast and visit with friends at the Wesley Chapel Fellowship Hall.

The Wesley Chapel Women of Faith will not meet in January, but will plan to hold their regular meeting in February. That group still has some nuts for sale. Buy pecan halves, pecan pieces, cashews, and chocolate-covered peanuts and freeze them so you will have them available for your use all year.

The Farmington/Wesley Chapel United Methodist Churches began a new Bible Study Monday at 10 a.m. in the Fellowship Hall at Farmington Methodist.  The group is beginning a new study of the Gospel of Mark. Everyone in the community is invited.

Kathy and Bob Ellis spent last weekend at Jekyll Island, Ga., attending a Bluegrass Festival. They really enjoyed the weekend. They said some of the performers were outstanding.

Nancy Collette returned to her home at the beginning of the week after spending several days at Forsyth Memorial Hospital and at a rehab facility.  She seems to be doing well.

Betty West had a surprise dinner on Dec. 27, 2022, to honor her son, Henry, on his 65th birthday. Henry was indeed surprised. Those who came for dinner and to wish Henry a  happy birthday were: Alexander Spillman, Autumn Spillman and Peter Alverz, and Mindy Spillman all of Yadkinville, Frances West Tutterow,  Al and Susan West Cujas and their son, Oliver, all of Cana.

Susan and Al Cujas and Oliver Cujas of Cana and Missy and David Michalski of Lewisville have returned after spending the New Year’s Holiday in Ford City, Pa., with Al Cujas’ relatives.  Al’s brother, Anthony, and his wife, Melody, of Ford City have bought property in Davie County and people here are looking forward to having them move to the area.

The people of the Cana and Pino communities are sorry to hear of the death of Margaret Ann Cartner Shew, who died Friday at the Kate B. Reynolds Hospice House in Winston-Salem surrounded by her daughters, Paula Allen, Darlene Fuller and Teresa Santis. Mrs. Shew was Director of the Davie County Board of Elections for many years. During the years that she served in that office, there was never even a hint of any voting irregularities in Davie County.  The people of the Cana and Pino communities appreciate Mrs. Shew’s many years of service to the people of Davie County.
