Greetings,

I am running out of the door for a quick trip to St. Louis, helping out a good family friend in distress. Pray for a safe trip there and back home.

The George R. Ellis alumni’s high school and elementary are all geared up for June 30 in Centennial Park in Millington behind the YMCA. It’s a “tail-gate picnic.” Bring all of your eats but no beers. Place your name, the year you attended and graduated from “good ole Ellis” in Munford. For more information, those of you with emails, check  for more details concerning this awesome event, which is free. Call Jessie Cook at 901-649-3940.

Our hearts were doubly sad with the news of two great people who passed away, the Rev. Quinten Barlow, of Barlow’s Funeral Home in Covington, and Mrs. Beulah Wakefield of Drummonds. Both services are scheduled for mid-week beginning Wednesday with Rev. Barlow at the funeral home. There will also be at least two more home going celebrations for Mr. Barlow this week. For those dates, times and places, you can contact Barlow’s Funeral Home or see page A2.. On Saturday at St. Paul M.B. Church in Drummonds, Pastor W.E. Gatlin will officiate for Mrs. Wakefield. Let us keep them and all of our readers in prayers.

Minister “Pink” Sherrill Jr. is moving to Covington Care, room 101 from Baptist East on Monday.

He’s doing some better. Also in our prayers are Ruth and Connie Brown, Terrance “T” Sherrill, Robin Sherrill, Glo Dean and Ralph Davis and family, Amanda Gray, Mama Lyte, Jessie Lawson, Flossie Woods, Mary Burton, Theron Alston, Mary Ballard, Therman Boddie, Judy Sherfield, Mrs. Rodgers, a family friend from New Orleans, Rudolph Boykins, Doris King, Lela Mason, Clyde Cook and our readers out of town, Rhonda Heaston McLin and Doris Deberry, both of Milwaukee, and Russell Gray of Florida.

Happy birthday to everyone celebrating this week.

St. Mark “The Saint” on Wilkinsville Rd. in Millington and Pastor Redwell are singing Christmas praises at 6 p.m. on Dec. 23, featuring St. Mark’s awesome choir, the public is invited to come and hear a wonderful festive blessing!

That is all for now. Remember, “There is always plenty of room in a pair of loving arms.”

Until next time.
