Iredell-Statesville Schools begin Monday, Aug. 14. As you drive, be sure to exercise caution when meeting a school bus or passing students at a bus stop. Also, be sure to stop when a bus has its stop arm extended. If students need to cross the road, they should always cross in front of the bus. More buses  will be on the road when Davie County Schools begin Aug. 28.  Words/acts of caution may save a life.

The Young at Heart of Society Baptist will meet at 11:30 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 15.  The group invites others in our community.

Calvary Baptist Church hosted a community ice cream social yesterday (Wednesday) evening.

A country ham and sausage breakfast sponsored by the V-Point Ruritans will be from 7-10 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 2.

Our community sends get-well wishes to Lorene Macemore, who has pancreatitis at Rowan Medical Center since Thursday of last week.  Alice Waugh and Mildred Beck remain in rehab at Davie Nursing and Rehabilitation Center. Join us in prayer for the Lord’s divine healing upon Lorene, Alice, Mildred, and others who have health problems.

Remember in prayer the family of Clarence Draughn, who died Monday of last week at his home on Sheffield Road;  he was the husband of the late County Line native Evelyn Bolin Draughn.  Also, remember in prayer County Line native Archie Jones and wife Caroline;  she has been diagnosed with critical lymphoma of the brain and will begin treatment therapy at N.C. University Health Center of Chapel Hill.   

Please continue to pray for the Lord’s divine healing of young Caleb Williams as he takes oral chemotherapy treatments at Wake Forest Baptist Brenner Children’s Hospital.  Also, pray for the Lord’s comfort and guidance upon his parents Perry and Vickie as they minister to his needs.
