Daylight Saving Time begins at 2 a.m. Sunday, March 12.  Before you go to bed Saturday night, be sure to advance forward one hour all needed clocks. It’s also a good time to check all home fire, heat, and carbon monoxide alarms/detectors to ensure they are in good-working order. Share the love of Jesus and check an elderly neighbor’s devices, too. Remember the old saying, “It’s better to be safe than sorry.”

County Liners have continued to enjoy above average day temps the past week, but winter weather may not be over yet.  Many of us older folks still remember the severe sub-freezing temps and three weekly snows of March 1960.  Also, we have had snow in April.

The Baptist Men of Society will meet at 7 a.m. Saturday, March 11 in the fellowship hall. The men invite others for breakfast and prayer. They will discuss upcoming projects and community needs and will work on the church grounds.

The 12-session Bible study hosted by Clarksbury Church and led by Angie Revels continues Sunday at 6 p.m. The study will feature Gomer this Sunday.

The Women on Mission of Calvary Baptist will meet at 7 p.m. Monday, March 13. Martha Harding will present a program on mission work and needs in North America. The women invite others for the program and meal.

Upcoming community events include “Men’s and Women’s Day Celebration” Sunday, March 19 at Piney Grove AME Zion Church.

Our community sends get-well wishes to Robert Walker;  who suffered a heart attack last week, was hospitalized and had a pacemaker inserted, and is recuperating at home. Agnes A. Wooten has improved and is in rehab at Bermuda Commons of Davie. Alice C. Waugh has improved and has returned to Davie Nursing and Rehabilitation Center. Join us in prayer for the Lord’s divine healing upon these residents and others having health problems.

Remember in prayer the families of Ronnie and Sherrie Couch, William Grady “Bill” Ijames Jr., and Willie and Lib Lundy.  Ronnie’s mother Nellie Couch died Tuesday, Feb. 14 at home;  she was also an aunt of Gene Tutterow and the late Jim Dwiggins.  Bill died Friday, Feb. 17 at Somerset Court of Mocksville;  he was the husband of the late Gail Koontz Ijames and son-in-law of the late Ernest and Helen Koontz. Willie’s mother Lillie L. Bundrage lived in Sparta, Ga. and died Wednesday of last week.
