Potts Camp News
Billy Joe and Jason Jarrett attend motorcycle rally in Mountain View, Ark
Correction: Last week I stated that Aug. 26 was the birthday of Dene Randolph. It was the birthday of her husband, Don Randolph. She will celebrate her birthday on Sept. 27. Happy belated birthday to Don! Sorry about the mistake.
An early birthday lunch was held for Tiffany Erwin, daughter of Sandra (Hunsucker) Gillard and granddaughter of the late Virginia (King) Hunsucker on Sunday at the home of her aunt, Mildred (King) Marbury. She is a captain in the U.S. Army and will be leaving Sept. 3 to serve a three-year stint in Germany. Several family members joined Tiffany to wish her a happy birthday and wish her well on her journey. Also in attendance were Herb and Martha (Marbury) Harkleroad of Bowling Green, Ky., who also came to attend the funeral of Jo Ragsdale in Holly Springs on Monday.
Sympathy is extended to the family of Jo Ragsdale. She was a special lady and one whom I enjoyed knowing during my early working career.
Congratulations to Justin and Becka Dewberry on the arrival of their first child, a daughter, Emerson Taylor who was born at 10:51 p.m., Thursday, Aug. 23.
