There was a chimney fire at home of the Whittingtons in Cana on Easter morning. The William R. Davie Fire Department responded quickly.
Wesley Chapel United Methodist Church had large crowds of worshippers, who were blessed by a good sermon and good music on Easter Sunday. Pastor Arnold Gosnell’s message certainly made the resurrection of Jesus real. Guest pianist, Jim Wilson, also inspired the worshippers with his music. Before the morning service, Kathy and Bob Ellis and Kathy and Pat Miller hosted a breakfast for those attending the morning service. Those who enjoyed the breakfast appreciated their hospitality.
The Wesley Chapel country ham breakfast on was a success. The people of Wesley Chapel thank thosee who come on the third Saturday each month for breakfast. Mark your calendar for the next breakfast on the third Saturday in May.
The Wesley Chapel United Women of Faith met aon Tuesday, April 11, for their monthly meeting. The group enjoyed a good program, which was followed by refreshments. The Wesley Chapel women still have some nuts which are on sale for $10 per bag, which is a great price. The nuts freeze well so you can buy now and freeze the nuts to use in baking later.
Kathy and Bob Ellis recently went to Reidsville to attend Kathy’s grandson, Luke Boger’s, band concert. Luke did a saxophone solo. Kathy handled the part of the proud grandmother well.
Last week seemed to be the week for cataract surgery for Pino people. First, Marlene Trivette, and, then later in the week, Bob Ellis had cataracts removed. Both patients seem to be doing well.
Frances Tutterow of Cana and her grandson, Joseph Burchette of Advance spent a few days last week at Frances’ house at Cherry Grove, S.C. They had a fine time there because they both love the ocean so much.
Last week Kathy and Bob had a birthday dinner at the Wesley Chapel fellowship hall to honor their good friend, Judy Wilson, and Kathy’s special aunt, Ann Cline. The ladies appreciated the special honor.
Melody Cujas is spending time with her sister and brother-in-law, Susan and Al Cujas, in Cana while she and her husband, Anthony, who comes on weekends, work on a house they are buying in Davie County. Melody, who is a nurse accepted a job at Novant Health and came on down to stay with Susan and Al while Anthony is finishing up his work in Ford City, Pa.
Bob and Kathy Ellis, after attending the worship service at Wesley Chapel, went to Reidsville to have Easter Dinner with Kathy’s son, Ethan, his wife, Allison, and their sons, Reid and Luke.
People from all around enjoyed spending time with families on Easter Sunday. Marlene Trivette had her family for dinner, which was not only an Easter meal but a celebration of Marlene’s grandson, Sean Rouse’s birthday. Those enjoying the Easter/birthday meal at Marlene’s home were: the honoree, Sean Rouse, his brother Rick Rouse, and Vicki and Robert Burchin.
Those who enjoyed lunch on Easter with Frances Tutterow at her home in Cana were: Jason and Page Tutterow and their daughters, Reese and Harper; Izzy and Joe Burchette and their children, Joseph and Birdie, all of Advance; and Betty Etchison West of Pino. Members of the Cujas family, Amy and Ryan Applegate of Charlotte, Missy Cujas of Lewisville, and Al and Susan Cujas and their son, Oliver, joined the group in the afternoon.
Eaton’s Baptist held a Sunrise Easter Service in the cemetery just as the sun became visible. That is always such an impressive service which during which the believers remember Jesus’ resurrection. The people spend time at that sacred place on Easter morning to rejoice in the fact that Jesus arose from the dead and to remember their loved ones who are buried in the Eaton’s cemetery.
