As photos show, folks had fun times whether local or away during spring break.  Also, some of us were saddened when our “Cinderella” Wolfpack men’s and women’s basketball teams lost to No. 1 seeded teams in the NCAA “Final Four” games.   

Piney Grove AME Zion Church will celebrate it’s 170th anniversary Sunday, April 14.  Following the 11 a.m. worship service, there will be a covered-dish dinner in the fellowship hall.  At 2 p.m. there will be a special service celebrating and reflecting upon the spreading of the Gospel of Jesus Christ throughout the.past 170 years. Pastor I. Melvin Peavy of Saint Paul AME Zion Church of Hickory will be the guest speaker. Church members invite everyone.

The Young at Heart of Society Baptist will meet at 11:30 a.m. Tuesday, April 16. The group invites other senior adults to join them.

Upcoming community events: the annual Cool Spring School Alumni Association dinner meeting Saturday, April 20 at the gym; revival services at Clarksbury Methodist the last week of April; and country ham and sausage breakfast sponsored by the V-Point Ruritans from 7-10 a.m. Saturday, May 4.
