On Saturday, March 16, Wesley Chapel will host a community breakfast from  6:30-10 a.m.  The menu will include country ham, sausage, scrambled eggs, grits, red-eye gravy, sawmill gravy, homemade biscuits, baked apples, jelly, orange juice and coffee.  Wesley Chapel is three miles west of Farmington just off of NC 801 N. on Pino Road.  No set charge; donations are appreciated.

The people of the Cana and Pino communities want the members of Roger Miller’s family to know that they have their sympathy. Roger was a good man, who was always will to help anyone in need. He helped me keep Frostland going during the many years I owned the property.  I appreciated his help.

Members of the Pino community have become world travelers. Kathy and Bob Ellis just returned from a trip to Australia.  The trip was fabulous except for the fact that the airline lost their luggage which they were not re-united with for eight days.

After arriving in Australia, Bob and Kathy boarded a cruise ship and made several ports of call  in New Zealand. They saw many amazing sites before returning and disembarking at Sydney, Australia.  They spent the last week in and around Sydney where they were amazed at the size of the Sydney Opera House.  They enjoyed the Sydney Zoo with its many exotic animals before boarding an airplane for the 16-hour flight to Raleigh.

A few weeks earlier, Kelli and Nathan Hedrick traveled to Switzerland to celebrate their 10th wedding anniversary.  They loved Switzerland and want to go back and take their daughter, Aubrey.  When I think of Switzerland I think of the book, “Heidi,” which I loved as a child, and I still think every little girl should read it, particularly if she is going to Switzerland.

The pastor of Wesley Chapel United Methodist Church and Union United Methodist Church, Randy Pardue, is teaching a Lenten Study in the Wesley Chapel Fellowship Hall on Thursday afternoon at 1. Everyone in the community is invited.

Nick Rouse is teaching a knitting class at the Wesley Chapel on Saturday afternoons.  The participants are knitting squares that will be put together to make coats for needy children. There is an organization called Knit a Square—Make a Coat for a Cold Child for which the people are knitting.

Alice and Jim Hicks of Kent, Connecticut, spent several days last week visiting Alice’s sister, Ina Kamenz, and her husband, Donald, at their home in Cana. Alice visited her cousin, Betty West, on Thursday afternoon.
