Carey Chapel & Mt. Pleasant News
Carey Chapel Baptist Church members to honor widows and widowers with hangout Saturday
A large crowd attended Howard and Carol Gardner’s 50th wedding anniversary Saturday, Nov. 17, in the fellowship hall at First Baptist Mt. Pleasant. Bro. Doug Bell was the MC. Ailee Coopwood welcomed the guests. Comments were shared by relatives and friends of what Howard and Carol meant to them. A special song was sung by Brandy Bell. The blessing was asked by Bro. Doug. There were plenty of cake, punch, food and fellowship.
On Saturday, Dec. 1, the members at Carey Chapel Baptist church will be honoring the widows and widowers with a hangout.
If you would like to order a Christmas poinsettia in memory or honor of a loved one to be placed in the sanctuary at First Baptist, see Jean Dunn or Barbara Ellis. They will be picked up Dec. 8.
Michelle Teel is home from St. Francis Hospital after a brief stay.
Mary Mills is home after spending some time in Germantown Rehab.
I enjoyed a Thanksgiving dinner at the home of Ivy and Patricia Teel and family.
The ladies at First Baptist Church enjoyed a night out. They dined at O’Charley’s in Collierville.
Travis and LeeAnne Edwards carried their son, Cole, to Shreveport, La. for a checkup on his hand recently. He is to have surgery in February.
Many years ago, my husband’s sister, who lived in Holly Springs, invited the family to a Thanksgiving dinner and her son’s football game. When we left Thanksgiving morning the sun was shining pretty and bright. No clouds to be seen in the sky. After a good Thanksgiving dinner, we all went to the football game. About midafternoon when the game was in full swing, clouds began to roll in from the north with a cold wind. Then it began to snow.
It didn’t seem to faze the ball players. We left before the game was over. Before we arrived at home the ground was covered in snow.
The worse part, our son and cousin had to ride in the back of our pickup truck. They were about frozen when we arrived at home.
The next morning we had four inches of snow on the ground. This was the first time and the last I remember it snowing on Thanksgiving Day.
