A large crowd attended the dedication service for the new fellowship hall at First Baptist Mt. Pleasant Sunday, Nov. 11. Eddie Dunn from Memphis sang the special music. The pastor, Dr. Don Le Belle, preached the message. After the message, Don Bumpus was presented a gift certificate by all the Sunday school classes in an appreciation for all the time and work he donated to the new fellowship hall. Then all went to the fellowship hall for the dedication. Everyone had a part in the service. A potluck meal was enjoyed by all.

Love and sympathy are expressed to both of these families.
Billy, Estelle, Kevin, Amanda and Anna Jo McClure attended Michelle Johnson’s baptism service in Little Rock, Ark. Sunday, Nov. 11. Michelle is Billy and Estelle’s daughter.
At Thanksgiving, I think of that old hymn, “Count your many blessings, name them one by one. County your many blessings see what God has done.” You know we have so much to be thankful for, our family, freedom and also material blessings. We should pray each day and show our gratitude to our service men and women who are fighting to give us freedom and by sharing our material blessings with others less fortunate. You know if we count our blessings we may lose our count. If only we would praise God in all situations, for He has our best interests at heart. In Thessalonians 5:18: “Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you.”
Happy Thanksgiving and remember God loves you no matter who you are.
On Tuesday, Nov. 6 at 11:30 there were 29 Keenagers who met at Carey Chapel Baptist Church for a covered dish luncheon. The theme was “Dress for the hunt.” Everyone wanted to know what hunt, but they just had to guess. A lot of people came dressed in hunting clothes.
Some came dressed in regular church clothes, we accused a lot of these widow ladies of wearing hunting clothes for a man. Ha! We did have a lot of fun.
After a turkey and dressing dinner with all the trimmings and desserts out of this world, we had a wonderful day.
We heard a turkey gobble and then we had a turkey drawing by Nancy Boyd with a dart board attached, brought out for a game that was played by everyone.
Everyone had three chances to get three magnetic darts on the turkey. They were aiming at the red dot in the center, also they were scoring points at the same time.
After everyone played, Warren Teel had hit the red dot, so he won a certificate that said he made a clean shot. Then Linda Ruff scored 114 points, so she got a certificate for the highest score. I said, “What do you usually get at a turkey shoot?” Linda said, “A turkey.” Well then B.J. Clark came out and gave Warren and Linda a 12-pound frozen turkey apiece. They were both shocked. No one knew they were playing for turkeys. We always have a good time at Keenagers. Come and join us the first Tuesday every month. We would love to have you.
