Last Sunday morning County Line mothers were honored in some way at local churches.  As photos show, some were honored at a community-wide formal tea luncheon hosted by Clarksbury Methodist Saturday morning.  Others were honored with breakfast and tokens of appreciation Sunday morning.

Clarksbury Methodist Church will celebrate “Friends and Family Day” from 3-6 p.m. Sunday, May 19 with games and other activities for folks of all ages. A meal of hotdogs and hamburgers will begin at 5 p.m.  Church members invite everyone to bring a chair and join them for an afternoon of family fun and good eating.

       Society Baptist Church will have a guest speaker from Gideons International at the 11 a.m. worship service this Sunday. A love offering for Gideons International will be taken.  Church members invite everyone as they support and learn more about Gideons’ outreach ministry.

Upcoming community events: country ham and sausage breakfast by V-Point Ruritans, 7-10 a.m. Saturday, June 1; and annual car, bike, and truck cruise-in at Piney Grove AME Zion Church at 10 a.m. June 1.

Our community sends get-well wishes to Gretna Feimster and Shirley Prather Lewis. Gretna suffered a light stroke last Saturday and has been in the hospital. Terry Wayne Dyson and Caleb Williams continue medical treatments.

Join us in prayer for the Lord’s divine healing and blessings upon Gretna, Shirley, Terry Wayne, Caleb, and others who are having health problems.  Remember in prayer the family of Linda Owings, who died at home May 2; she was a granddaughter of County Line native John Eugene Owings.
