Clarksbury Methodist Church will hold Vacation Bible School from 5:30-8 p.m. Monday, July 31-Friday, Aug. 4. Children, get ready to enjoy a week of “Food Truck Party – On a Roll with God.” Each day VBS will begin with a meal followed by classes for infants through adults. Classes for children include Bible stories, music, crafts, and recreation. The adult class will focus on Bible study.

As photos show, the hot humid weather last week did not deter children from enjoying VBS at Society Baptist Church last week.

Upcoming community events: country ham and sausage breakfast sponsored by the V-Point Ruritans from 7-10 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 5 at the V-Point Building; and ice cream social hosted by Calvary Baptist Church Wednesday, Aug. 9.

Our community sends congratulations to Jimmy and Teresa Rogers Smoot upon their 50th wedding anniversary. The couple was married Saturday, July 21, 1973, at Salem United Methodist. They returned to Salem for a family celebration in the fellowship hall last Sunday.  The couple sealed the event with a kiss at the altar where they said their wedding vowels 50 years ago.

Teresa is the daughter of Clyde and Kathleen Slevin Rogers and was reared on US 64 just east of NC 901.  Jimmy is the son of J.C. and Lucille Dulin Smoot and was reared on Davie Academy Road. The couple reside in the Smoot family homeplace on Davie Academy Road and children Jason, Jean, and Amy have homes nearby.     

Our community sends get-well wishes to Alice C. Waugh, who has been at Forsyth Medical Center.  Mildred Beck remains in rehab at Davie Nursing and Rehabilitation Center.  Join us in prayer for the Lord’s divine healing upon Alice, Mildred, and others who have health problems.

Remember in prayer Martha Riddle Fox Isaac, whose daughter Joyce Fox Manning died Tuesday of last week at Autumn Care of Salisbury. Please continue to pray for the Lord’s divine healing of young Caleb Williams as he has begun taking oral therapy treatments at Wake Forest Baptist Brenner Children’s Hospital.
