Breakfast at Wesley Chapel is Saturday, June 15. Members will be cooking breakfast and invite you all from 6:30-10 a.m.  The menu incldues country ham and 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. Donations are appreciated.

The Wesley Chapel Women of Faith still have bags of nuts, and they have reduced the price to $10 per bag. This will be a good time to fill your freezer with nuts for your fall baking. We still have some pecan pieces and halves and some cashews.

We were so happy to have a large crowd at the Wesley Chapel Homecoming, but missed some who usually come.  Wesley Chapel Pastor Randy Pardue delivered the sermon.  After the service, lunch was served in the fellowship hall.

The “Gathering of Women of Faith” was a tremendous success. Forty-five people from 15 churches attended. We were pleased to have people from Methodist churches that had left the Western North Carolina Conference, and people who were still members.  That was important because the group is women from all denominations.  The speaker was Brandon Cathey, the Senior Director of Development for Crossnore Communities for Children.  Mr. Cathey created much interest for the Crossnore Communities for Children; the women donated $1,600 that night to Crossnore, which administers at the campus in Avery County and the campus that used to be the Methodist Children’s Home in Winston-Salem.  The Mocksville Women of Faith will he the hostesses for the 2025 Women of Faith Gathering which on the first Monday in June, 2025.

Kathy and Bob Ellis returned from the Outer Banks where they went to help Kathy’s Aunt, Peggy Cline Angell, celebrate her 93rd birthday. Peggy is the only living sister of Kathy’s mother, Nora Cline Latham, who died several years ago. Peggy fell some time ago and broke some bones so she is recuperating. Ann Cartner Cline, Peggy’s sister-in-law. went with Kathy and Bob.

Pino people are distressed that two members of the community are facing difficult medical problems.  We want Jance James to know that we are thinking of her and we want the treatment that she is taking to do what it is supposed to do,

Cindy West Potts, daughter of the late Lonnie and Dorothy West and wife of David Potts, fell at her home on Pino Road last week and broke her femur.  She already had a number of health problems which is making treatment of the broken leg more problematic. We certainly hope Cindy can get some relief soon.
