Homecoming at Wesley Chapel United Methodist Church will be on June 2. The worship service will be at 11 a.m. followed by a covered dish dinner in the fellowship hall. As they used to say, “bring a well-filled basket” and join your friends for lunch and a time of reliving good times past.   We are certain looking forward to seeing you.

The Davie County Women of Faith are planning “A Gathering” at Wesley Chapel on June 3. This type of meeting was held in Davie for many years before Covid and was revived last year by Barbara Crotts and the women of Concord United Methodist. The Women of Faith of Wesley Chapel volunteered to host “The Gathering” in 2024.   We hope that all of you Women of Faith you will put this “Gathering” on your calendar.  You don’t have to be a member of any particular denomination.  We will begin with a covered dish meal at 6 p.m. followed by music and a speaker.  The speaker will be Branndon Cathey, wSenior Director of Development for Crossnore Communities for Children. He will give up-to-date information on what is happening at the Crossnore Communities for Children Campus in Winston-Salem, which was the Methodist Children’s Home and had been struggling. Mr. Cathey is excited about developments there so we are looking forward to learning more about what is happening.  We hope you will join us for this special meeting.  Please call 336-998-3298 by May 27 and let us know how many people are coming from your church so we will know how many tables to set up, etc.  We are excited about this “Gathering” and we hope you will come, bring a dish, enjoy dinner with friends old and new, and then learn more about Crossnore.  We will take up an offering for Crossnore.  Checks should be made out to Crossnore Communities for Children.

We are looking forward to seeing you at the Wesley Chapel United Methodist Church Fellowship Hall on June 3.

Lisa Dixon West recently returned from a trip to Montana to visit her cousin. Joan Newton.  Lisa’s cousin was an excellent tour guide and was able to take her many interesting places in “Montana, the Big Sky Country.” Lisa and her cousin spent two days in Yellowstone National Park where they saw a great deal of wildlife.    Lisa loved seeing the wide-open western landscape and spending time with her cousin, Joan.

Kathy and Bob Ellis recently returned from spending time with Bob’s daughter and her family in Florida and then going on a week-long cruise in the southern Carribean with Aruba being one port-of-call, to celebrate Bob’s 77th birthday. Bob’s son, Robert, his wife, Maricel, and his son, Jayden, accompanied Bob and Kathy on the cruise.

Frances West Tutterow took all the members of her immediate family to to celebrate the school graduation from Davie County High School of her granddaughter, Reese Tutterow.  Reese is the daughter of Jason and Page Tutterow. Those who enjoyed the weekend in Tennessee which included spending some time at Dollywood were: Reese, Harper, Jason and Page Tutterow and Reese’s friend, Coy James;  Joe, Izzy, Birdie, and Joseph Burchette; and Joseph’s friend, Tate Brewer; and. of course, the hostess, Frances Tutterow.  Frances rented a large cabin and the family enjoyed being together as they celebrated Reese’s graduation.

The members of the Cana and Pino communities want the family of Brent Gobble to know that they have the sympathy of the people here because of your terrible loss. Brent was an outstanding person who made the world a better place. Brent was one of my favorite students because he was always so kind and polite. He never failed to stop and speak to me, even all these years since he and I were at William R. Davie School.
