Committee moves forward on July 4th celebration

Wilsons rejoice over birth of new grandson
The people of Potts Camp and our school were sorry to hear that Ken Basil, principal of the school, will be leaving our school and town, after three wonderful years. Our thoughts and prayers will go with him as he goes, and we wish him much success in the election of Superintendent of Education in Union County. (Pictured in South Reporter.)

Carey Chapel hosts revival services
Twenty-nine Keenagers met for a covered dish luncheon on April 3, for their regular meeting at Carey Chapel Baptist Church. Everything was decorated for Easter. After lunch, the group enjoyed fellowship and games. They played “pin the tail on the bunny,” “ring the bunny” and a game that included throwing velcro balls at a bunny to make the ball stick to the bunny. Game winners included Pearl and Tony Kelly and Shelia Hudson.
Special program set for April 29
Ask God to bless those who persecute you; yes, ask Him to bless, not to curse. Be happy with those who are happy, weep with those who weep, have the same concern for everyone. Do not be proud, but accept humble duties. Do not think of yourselves as wise. Roman 12:14-16
The people of this community are in sympathy with the Dean family in the death of their loved one, Mrs. Mary Lou Hall Dean, who was funeralized on Saturday, April 14 at Hamilton Chapel CME Church.
Pleasant Grove hosts spring revival
Everyone present enjoyed Easter worship at Hopewell No. 1 Easter Sunday at 10:45 a.m. Devotion was led by the deacons. Attorney Ben Cole led in responsive reading. Deacon Michael Crittle gave the sick report. Beautiful Easter music was provided by the choir. Pastor Leroy James delivered the sermon. Following worship, an Easter program was presented with Sis. Monica Govan, mistress of ceremony. This was followed by an egg hunt on the church lawn.
Pastor James is the evangelist for spring revival at Pleasant Grove this week. We were glad to have our college students and military personnel home for Easter weekend.
Mrs. Laverne Jones and Willie Morris Bowen visited Mrs. W. Beatrice Walton, formerly of Holly Springs, in a nursing home in Memphis March 31, and they were so happy to find her in good spirits.
God bless till next week.
