Cecilia Community News Irene Dodson 862-3808 CHURCH NEWS. We had a wonderful service at College Heights Sunday, It was the final day of the VBS, and as always those children were wonderful. Many thanks were extended to Latina Adams, leader of the Bible school, and to all who helped her. They did a wonderful job. Of the 54 enrolled they had an attendance each evening from 48 to 52. The church was practically full. Following the children’s service the dedication of Boy Scout Pavilion- Eagle Scout Project by Jeremy Emmerling was held. Following the close of the service the United Methodist Women served a meal in the Fellowship Hall with the donations given for the meal going for missions. UMW (United Methodist Women) met at the church Thursday morning, with nine in attendance. Judy Ward, treasurer, was in charge of the program, which was a pledge service. RURITAN CLUB.

CECILIA HOMEMAKERS CLUB. Six of the Cecilia Homemakers Club members went to Lexington Tuesday for our annual ovarian cancer test. Thankfully all six of us taking the test were pleased with the results. We left the Cecilia Baptist Church at 9 a.m., ate lunch at a restaurant before going onto the clinic, getting there early, and luckily getting out early. VISITS. Randal and Sue Flowers along with her mother, Thelma Dunn, visited their son, Trevor Flowers and wife, in North Carolina where he is stationed there at the Air Force base. Trevor just recently returned from a tour of duty in Afghanistan. They also went to Alabama and visited their daughter, Rhonda Alfredson, and her husband and son before returning home. Edna Drane had as her guest Tuesday her granddaughter from Louisville, Joanna Stall. Michael Ward and a friend from near St. Louis visited his parents, Judy and David Ward, over the past weekend and picked up his children, Charlie and Aiden, who had spent the week with their grandparents and attended VBS at College Heights. Iva Lee and Bill Saltsman of Cecilia recently flew to Boise, Idaho to visit friends, later rented a car and went to Jackson Hole, Wyo., then drove to Yellowstone National Park and to Glacier National Park in Montana, and spent a couple of days in Deer Lodge, Mont., where they visited many museums in the town. They also visited the Idaho Potato Museum in Blackfoot and other places of interest before returning home. Irene and Waymon Aubrey attended the annual “McCubbins Singing On the Farm” on July 11 and 12 on their farm in Munfordsville. This event is held outside each year, and everyone brings lawn chairs to sit and enjoy the music. On Sunday evening family members Catrina Wilkerson and “Cissy” Aldridge gave them tickets to attend the concert at Northside Baptist Church in Elizabethtown. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY. Belated 44th wedding anniversary greeting on July 17 to Jay and Judy Edwards. Here’s wishing you many more happy years together. HEALTH CONCERNS. Virginia Palmore had surgery for cancer; David Hester, my online friend’s husband (she was going to take him to a liver transplant hospital Monday); Noah Webb, Greg Watson, Amaryllis Edwards, Andrea Hornback, Cynthia Fullen, Nell Stewart, Ruby Parker, Tommy Rogers, and all others who aren’t well at this time. Remember our military in your prayers, as well as the leaders of our country SYMPATHY. Sympathy to those who have lost loved ones and are grieving at this time. THOUGHT FOR THE DAY. Hold tightly to what is eternal and loosely to what is temporal. HINT. Use empty toilet paper rolls to store appliance cords; it keeps them neat and you can write on the roll which appliance the cord belongs to. This helpful hint was found on a hair dryer: “Do not use while sleeping.” You know, I never thought of doing that! SENDING IN NEWS.
