Brotherhood Banquet held at First Baptist Church Saturday
On Father’s Day, I remembered my wonderful father, Benton Potts, a depot agent for 40 years; he told us stories about the past years in Potts Camp, as we sat on the front porch at night. He always said the blessing before each meal, and rode us where we needed to go in his old T model and A Model Fords. We loved him!
Moonlight cruise set for Friday
As we gather with our families this week to celebrate the birth of our country, take a moment with your loved ones to give thanks for all our freedoms and privileges. Many, many countries of our world are terrorized by dictators who have no regard for life or liberties other than those on their own agenda.
