Hello Snow Lakers. I hope you had a good week.
Have you noticed the ducks are back on the East and West Snow Lake entrance signs? Take a look when you come in or leave. I still haven’t heard from anyone. Did you see them? Call and let me know. Thanks.

Locals visit with Budlongs in Memphis, enjoy lunch together
On Monday April 24, I traveled to Forrest City, Ark. with Martha and Bobbie Fant. We visited the local library, courthouse and Mt. Vernon Cemetery. We were in search of information on Teel ancestor Charles Wesley Teel, who had owned a 350-acre plantation in St. Francis County. We found and visited the plantation site just outside of Forrest City.
Samuel Chapel observes anniversary
The 141st anniversary program of Samuel Chapel MB Church was held April 23, 2 p.m. Min. Joseph Davis Jr., pastor. “For now have I chosen and sanctified this house, that my name may be there for ever: and thine eyes and mine heart shall be there perpetually.” II Chronicle 7:16
Our church was started shortly after the Civil War ended.
A freedom school was held on this church ground. There was no building here at the time. The people set up a brush harbor for their school. From this very humble beginning Samuel Chapel Missionary Baptist Church was born.
Clabon Jackson started school in the first frame church in 1907.
Our present building was constructed under contract with Bro. Henry Louis Strickland in 1994, Rev. Steven B. Glass was pastor.
