Sympathy is extended to the family of Mitch Tomlinson of Holly Springs who passed away early Saturday morning, Aug. 31 at Methodist Hospital in Memphis, Tenn. Funeral services were held Wednesday morning at Holly Springs Funeral Home.
Jeanette Stone displayed some of her Halloween gourd art during the second Saturdays Folk Art on the River in New Albany during the summer. Held in June, July and August, the Folk Art Market at Biscuits & Jam Farmers’ Market included folk art vendors, folk art crafts for kids, Pickers Art Contest, nature walks, storytelling, yoga, agri-tours to local farms, Frisbee golf and live bluegrass. Large crowds attended each month with a vast variety of items.
On Wednesday, August 28, Annie Ruth Stone, Tommye Ann Goode and I traveled to Oxford for visits with Estelle Bennett and Ira and Lois Shipp. After a wonderful visit and delicious lunch with Mrs. Bennett, the trio then spent time with Mr. and Mrs. Shipp. Pictures were shared during the afternoon and Mrs. Stone did a commentary on her book “Annie’s Hats,” which had lots of photos of her parents, grandparents, other relatives and friends and their large selection of hats and dress during the late 1800s and early 1900s. The idea of the book came to Mrs. Stone one night when she could not sleep. She gathered photos and daughter Pebble Gadd put together an amazing memory for her mother and siblings.
Roger and Daphne Foster have just returned from a very nice trip to Virginia. Departing from Potts Camp early Thursday, the 15th of August, bound for the quaint little town of Floyd, Va., they arrived there around noon on Friday, the 16th, (coincidentally this was Daphne’s birthday). Here they were joined by Gerald and Carolyn Young of Hernando. “Floyd is known for its bluegrass music and there are impromptu performances on Main Street every Friday night. The four of us enjoyed spending a few hours listening to the “pickin’ and grinnin’.” On Saturday there were over 120 antique tractors gathered just outside of town for the 7th annual “Floyd Fun Run.” This ride is always dedicated to some worthy medical benefit. This year the proceeds went to the family of a 5-year-old boy who has spina bifida.
“The ride through parts of the Shenandoah Valley and parallel to the Blue Ridge Parkway was quite a memory maker. Many new friendships were bonded and several tall tales were exchanged. The scenery was breathtaking,” Roger said.
On Sunday the Youngs departed for Hernando and the Fosters headed east to Concord, NC, to visit with some of Roger’s old Navy buddies that he had not seen in about 35 years. After a very pleasant few hours and a lovely dinner, the Fosters continued, on to Greenville, SC, to visit a relative of Daphne’s. They spent three days visiting with the cousin and returned to Potts Camp on Saturday, Aug. 24.
“In spite of a delay due to mechanical problems with the RV, this was one of the best trips that we have had. Plans are already in place to return to Floyd next year,” said the Fosters.

I leave you with this thought: “Serve one another humbly in love. For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: Love your neighbor as yourself.” Galatians 5:13-14 (NIV). When we give God’s love to others, we receive it back a hundredfold.
