This week is busy for many families in County Line.  Iredell County public school kids are excited as tomorrow (Friday) is the last day of school and is an early-release day. North Iredell High School graduation is 8 a.m. this Saturday, May 25 at Raider Stadium.  We wish those students and their families a great day.  Our Davie County public school kids have about two more weeks of school.

Our community news will again honor all students who graduated, earned a professional certificate, or received an honor or award the past year.  If you did or know of someone who did, call or text details and/or photo on 336-492-5115 or email   

As photos show, the Forever Young Club of Clarksbury Methodist enjoyed a day trip to the Bob Timberlake Gallery in Lexington last week. The group enjoyed a barbecue lunch before returning home.  Member Retha Gaither made the arrangements and drove the bus.

The “Friends and Family Fun Day” scheduled for last Sunday at Clarksbury Methodist was canceled due to inclement weather.   

Upcoming community events: country ham and sausage breakfast sponsored by the V-Point Ruritans from 7-10 a.m. Saturday, June 1, at the V-Point Building;  annual car, bike, and truck cruise-in hosted by Piney Grove AME Zion at 10 a.m. June 1;  and Davie High School graduation 8:30-10:30 a.m. Saturday, June 15 at War Eagle Stadium with rain date Sunday, June 16.

Gretna Feimster has improved and is recuperating at home. Terry Wayne Dyson and Caleb Williams continue chemotherapy treatments.  Join us in prayer for the Lord’s divine healing and blessings upon these residents and others who are having health problems.
