Temperance Hill Baptist Church hosted their Fourth Annual Christian Community Fall Festival on Saturday, Oct. 1. Providing special music during the day were the Songlight Singers of Amory, Linda Stacks, Gale Tate, Andy Roe, Fletcher Akins, Philip Rover, Lisa Mathis (accompanied by her husband, Dwayne, at the piano), and pastor Ken Cooper. The children enjoyed pony rides, the climbing wall, and other games. Mt. Moriah Baptist Church brought cakes, pies, cookies and other desserts for the sweet booth.
I was glad to see Lela and Kerry Hale when they came to visit me on Monday, also, my daughter Betty. Lela and Betty taught school together at West Union and they enjoyed visiting with each other.
Pray for my special friends, Charles Henderson and Henry Tutor. Also pray for Betty Fincher who visited her doctor recently, James (Spider) Cook, who had a serious operation and needs special prayers, Henry and Mary Jarrett, and Jimmy Armstrong.
I called my oldest son, Jimmy Hollingsworth, on his birthday, Oct. 3 in Tupelo. He and his wife, Martha, have four wonderful children.
Many people don’t know why Mary Reid was so important to our town. She was the only daughter of the first Potts Camp settlers, Col. E.F. Potts and wife, Elizabeth. She married Charlie Reid. Mary gave the land for a depot and right-of-way so the railroad could come this way. She also gave land for schools and churches of both races. Mary Reid School and Reid’s Gift Church are named for her.
