Folks celebrated  July 4th with fireworks, parades, store sales, family barbecues, vacation trips, etc.  Locally, folks were greeted with sweltering 90-degree temps.

The Clarksbury Church Youth and the Harmony Methodist Youth left last week for a mission trip to Red Springs Mission Camp. They are building ramps.  The group is returning this week and appreciates prayers for safe travel and much work for Christ.

Upcoming community events: Society Baptist Vacation Bible School with Kick-off Sunday, July 16, and classes Monday, July 17-Wednesday, July 19; and country ham and sausage breakfast sponsored by the V-Point Ruritans from 7-10 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 5 at the V-Point Building.

Our community sends congratulations to Grace Wall and Joseph Pinto upon their June wedding in Greensboro. Grace is a daughter of Pastor Cliff and Christi Wall of Clarksbury. The happy couple will make their home in Greensboro.  Grace and Joseph, all of us in County Line wish you a successful marriage.

Pastor Wall of Clarksbury has been called to be Pastor of  Cold Springs Church in Concord. After seven years as pastor of Clarksbury, he preached his last sermon there Sunday, June 25, and the past week has assisted the youth with their mission trip.

Although we will deeply miss him and his family, we wish them well in their service to God in Concord.  His support and contribution to County Line news and active involvement in our community have been greatly appreciated.

Our community extends sympathy to the family of Jack Randall Cave, who died Friday at home. He was born in Yadkin County in 1940 to the late Lonnie and Alma Cave and graduated from West Yadkin High School in 1958. In 1960 Randall married his wife Sue, and the couple reared children Chris and Karin.

In 1983 Randall and Sue settled on their farm on Davie Academy Road in County Line. Retired after 30 years at Western Electric and Southern Bell, he  enjoyed farming, raising cattle, gardening, and being with family. He loved restoring old tractors and was a valuable source of such for other folks.

A service celebrating his life was held last Sunday afternoon in Eaton Funeral Chapel; he was laid to rest in the cemetery of Bethel United Methodist Church.   

Mildred Beck remains at Forsyth Medical Center.  Alice Waugh remains in rehab at Davie Nursing and Rehabilitation Center.

Our community news will again honor all students who graduated, earned a professional certificate, or received an honor or award the past year.  If you did or know of someone who did; please call or text details and/or photo on 336-492-5115 or email
