Jamestown Community Health Organization's annual fundraiser, which was held Saturday evening at Covington’s Teen Learning Center, was a huge success.
President Rev. Pearl Andrews and program coordinators, Gwen Cooke and Pam Cobbs Springfield certainly pulled it off with the help of Jessie Cooke and several J.C.H.O. men.
"Southern Style" was all that it was meant to be and more. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the dinner. On the menu were ham, chicken neck bones, beans, greens, sweet potatoes and cabbage. Several deserts on the table rounded out those with a sweet tooth.
I made a red velvet pound cake and put it on plate with a Christmas design, which included a snowman and trees. Unfortunately, the plate was left at the center, if you happened to see the plate or better yet, pick it up, please let me know, as it is from my set and I’d love it back. Thank you! I hope that you enjoyed the cake along with everything on the menu!
Several guests came out for the event on Saturday evening, like Mr. and Mrs. Billy Wilson (Queen) from Bartlett; Warren Lee Alston (Linda) from Raleigh; Jae Duftaffson from Millington; Kris Rao of Munford and friends of Jessie and Gwen Cooke. Diane Joyner and her twin sister, Ann Beth Stewart, were special guests of Mary Burton.
The bridal shower I attended for one of my nieces on Saturday, March 22 was swell. The wedding of Sabrina Bell, oldest daughter of Walter J. Bell Jr, of Memphis, and Joann Burton Bell, formerly of Jamestown, to Raymond Reynolds, of Dallas, Texas is set for July 19 in Nashville.
Cousins Erica Sherfield, Stacey Tolbert and JaCinta Jones gave Sabrina a lavish shower. Family and friends came out to wish the happy bride-to-be well. Her colors are purple and cream. Everything was so lovely. The menu of hot wings, broiled chicken, fruits, punch cupcakes and a malted punch was delicious.
Prayers for Eugene Baker, Kim Andrews, Ruth Alston, Clark and Birdie Jones, Carlotta Jones, Eva Heaston, Jessie Lawson, Joseph Heaston Sr., Gertie and Charles Coleman, Gladys Miller and family, Carlene Sneed, Rev. Darryl Rozzell and family, Connie Brown, Katarene Harber, Doris King, Flossie Woods, Beaulah Wakefield, Rudolph Boykins, Mary Ballard and family and Judy Sherfield.

At my church, North Star of Memphis, Pastor Steven Miller Sr. will celebrate the church’s 16th anniversary May 4 at 2 p.m. The public is invited. I am on the usher’s board and will find you a seat!
This is all for this time, hopefully there will be more news coming your way next week.
Remember, "Anyone can count the seeds in an apple, but only God can count the apples found in the seeds."
Until next time.
