Anna Dunlap and Jennifer Greer spend exciting summer in Mass.

Congratulations to Caroline Boatwright - you couldn’t have picked better parents (Phil and Prentis) if you had tried! Glad you are here!

Frannie Farris just returned from a trip to Madison. She was visiting with her aunt Page Farris (it was her birthday) and seven-year-old cousin, Merry Alston. Frannie leaves this week to start school at Ole Miss.

Anna Dunlap and Jennifer Greer started a road trip on June 5, and arrived in Newburyport, Mass., on June 6 (a 21-hour drive). They stayed with Anna’s Aunt Julie (formerly Debardelaben), Uncle Barry and cousin Benjamin Cohen. The weather was great. They worked for Vinwood Caterers in Ipswich, Mass., where they worked many different events, but mostly wedding receptions. Everyone was so nice and the girls made lots of friends, which they are keeping in touch with. When they were not working for the catering company, they were hanging out with friends at the beach, shopping and working on their online college courses. They rode the train into Boston on July 17 to see the Boston Red Sox play the New York Yankees at Fenway Park! It was without a doubt the most exciting sporting event they have ever attended! Anna and Jennifer were sad to leave at the end of the seven weeks, but look forward to planning their trip back next summer. Their summer was amazing and a great experience.

David Akins of Long Island, New York, is visiting with his father, Billy Akins, this week. On Tuesday night, a group of his cousins met at JB’s Family Restaurant and had dinner. Those attending were David and Billy Akins, Jerry and Betty Scott, Amanda and Mackenzie Garner, Eleanor Algee, Douglas Teel, Cris and Ray Roy Cook and Milton Bell. The group enjoyed a delightful meal and discussing old times. Everyone is looking forward to David returning again soon.

Beverly Fitch and daughter, Shelby, of Collierville, Tenn., were Saturday night guests of Becky Cupp.

Constance Ann Lanier of Olive Branch, spent Sunday afternoon visiting with Becky Cupp and Kay Wheeler.
