Nancy and Mary Neely Jones, Jennifer and Hailey McMinn, Tammy and Hayden Wilkerson, Peggy Clifton, Ginny Martin, Linda and Sonni McKinney and Erin Burleson were all guests of Penny Lomenick and children, Erin and Eli, in their home in Destin, Fla. last week.
Chris and Stephanie Campbell and daughter, Taylor, Amy and Donnie Potts and children, Addison and Drayton, Madison Wilder and Jade Campbell were all in Destin last week, as well. Chris, Donnie and Drayton were joined by Grady Brooks and Mason Moore at an outdoor basketball court in Henderson Park for a little pickup game the day tropical storm Alberto hit.
Vicki and Walter Webb spent their anniversary week down 30-A. They enjoyed good food and one another’s company.
Linda and Tom Stewart and son, Thomas, and Brittany and J.C. Holmes and son, John Marshall, took an educational trip last week. The group visited the Lincoln Memorial, Washington Monument, the Capitol, the White House, the Holocaust Museum and the Reflecting Pool in Washington, D.C. They traveled to Williamsburg, Va., where they saw the Moore House at the York Town Battlefield. They enjoyed wonderful food at every stop, and rich history.
I spent last week in Sandestin with Grady, Kay and Laura Wheeler and Mason Moore. Hank Wheeler of Newnan, Ga., spent a few days with us. Caitlyn and Trace Bray joined Jordan Ladd and Josh Mask, whose house was directly across from ours. The week started off with a bang with the looming news of Alberto, which was expected to make landfall in Destin. Monday morning, stores began closing all around us, which was a little worrisome. They announced the bridges would be closed in and out of there, so it was a leave or wait it out situation. Needless to say, it was what we would consider a strong thunderstorm, we never even lost power. By Wednesday, the beaches were beautiful, although the water was closed due to the roughness.
A big thank you to all of the hard work put in over the weekend by the Holly Springs Utility Department, as well as the contracted companies who came in to help restore power. That storm ripped through here and left just as quickly, leaving so much damage in its path. Thankfully, nobody was hurt. Things can be replaced, although the massive grand trees that were lost will be missed.
Happy third birthday wishes to Finley Kate Clanton, who celebrated over the weekend with a party. Finley Kate is the daughter of Bronwyn and Barrett Clanton,
