As I write this the sun is shining beautifully and it looks warm outside, but I think it is a bit chilly according to the thermometer. Just eight or nine more days until spring officially is here.
ORGANIZATION NEWS. Pirtle Chapter No. 449 Order of the Eastern Star members met Saturday evening for the regular monthly meeting, and it was well attended. The meeting began with a delicious potluck meal, and as usual an abundance of food.
On Monday evening, the Cecilia Community Ruritan Club will meet at the Ruritan building for the regular meeting. The meeting begins at 7 p.m. with a catered meal. Guests are welcome and members are expected. Because of illness, we were unable to attend last month’s meeting. The Speaker? Come and be surprised. I’m sure they are in the process of planning for the huge Ky. 86 yard sale, similar to the one they had last year in April.
The Cecilia Homemakers are to meet Tuesday in the fellowship hall of Cecilia Baptist Church. The March lesson, “Focus on the Home, Preparedness.” Lesson leaders are Whitney Antique and Debbie McQueary. Hostesses are Patty Helm, Tina Marple and Sharon Bush.
VISIT. Diana and Ed Hunsinger were Sunday afternoon guests of her mother, Edna Drane
SAD NEWS TO REPORT. My good friend, Thelma Dunn, who during the past year along with another good friend of mine, Ruby Parker, were recognized with honors for having devoted 50 years as volunteers at Hardin Memorial Hospital. I think mostly in the gift shop. Sunday afternoon as they were closing, they started out using their walkers, when Mrs. Dunn fell before getting out of the gift shop, receiving a broken hip. She underwent surgery Monday morning. The good news, she came through the surgery well.
CHURCH NEWS. Sunday evening at College Heights United Methodist Church, the meal, youth variety show and cake and pie auction went over with stunning results. A large crowd was in attendance, and it seems everyone tried to out bid each other, raising a nice sum of money for the youth mission trip, vacation Bible school and the building fund.
The United Methodist Women will meet at 9:30 a.m. Thursday in Room 17 at the church.
An Easter egg hunt and party is from 10 a.m. to noon March 30 including an egg hunt, prizes, games and snacks. The Easter Bunny will be there to take pictures. For information, call Tricia Smith, 862-5444 or 234-6827.
If you would like to take a meal to someone recovering from surgery or welcoming home a newborn baby, preparing a meal for a family is one way we can take care of each other and serve as Jesus served.
I received a very interesting blog this week from the Morrissey’s, along with some pictures of some of the buildings they had a helpful hand in getting built. They are doing a great work as missionaries there in Thailand. Please remember them in your prayers.
CORRECTION. There was a misprint in my news Sunday regarding the Easter services at College Heights United Methodist Church. The contemporary services are at 9 a.m. and the traditional services are at 11 a.m. in the main sanctuary and the Hispanic service also is at 11 a.m. in memory hall, which was the original sanctuary. I hope this clears any confusion.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY. “Give me the wisdom to help them change their lives for the better.” I pray every morning. — Writer unknown.
HELPFUL HINT. Even though you might be in a hurry, you will save time in the long run if you will put whatever you are working with back in it’s place when you get through using it, instead of laying it down to put away later.
