Fall is here upon us and I can’t imagine where spring and summer went. They passed so quickly it seems the year has just flown by, almost time to start thinking about Christmas shopping.

If you or someone you have loved has experienced breast cancer and are looking for a way to make a contribution in helping get rid of cancer, consider contributing either home baked or store bought baked items to raise money at the Annual Burger King Breast Cancer Awareness Pull . It can be cookies, cakes or dessert items, whatever you find in your heart to donate. Every contribution is appreciated. This will be needed Oct. 11 and 12. Please call 270-862-3525 if you would like information

Due to other scheduled meetings College Heights Methodist Men did not meet Monday morning. The next meeting is at 9 a.m. Oct. 26, with breakfast at Golden Corral.

We again enjoyed a wonderful message at College Heights on Sunday, given by pastor Adam Sparks. Another in his series of “You Can Change,” this one was entitled “How are you going to change.” We had numerous members Sunday to hear his message.

Ruth Smith a faithful College Heights member, now a resident of Kensington Nursing and Rehabilitation Center was there, celebrating her 93rd birthday, accompanied by her grandson, Kevin Smith, and others of his family. She is a wonderful lady I have known now for many years. May God bless her and others present who were either having birthdays Sunday or recently, including Kenneth Allen, 83, Mrs. Adams, 80, Edna Drane celebrated her 94th birthday Aug. 26. There were several others including Floyd and myself in that age group, and so proud we still are able to attend church.

Because of continued growth and change in our congregation, it was considered necessary to do a pictorial directory. The photography dates are Oct. 24, 25 and 26, just in time for you to do Christmas pictures. There will be sign-up sheets available today in the narthex.

Volunteers are needed for children’s church, also known as Heights Heroes Training, for the 9 and 11 a.m. services. This will be on a monthly rotation. If you are interested in this children’s ministry, please sign-up on the sheet posted on the bulletin board. Contact Ann Davis for information.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY. “It is best to read the weather forecast, before praying for rain.” — Unknown.

HELPFUL HINT. You don’t need a bunch of chemicals or poisons to help your prized tomatoes fend off dastardly disease, just use my terrific tonic with Epsom Salts to beat them back. Use 3 cups of compost, ½ cup of Epsom Salts, 1 tablespoon of baking soda and ½ cup of powdered milk. Mix the first three ingredients in a bucket and add a handful of the mixture in the planting hole. After planting, sprinkle a bit of the dry milk on the soil. Repeat every few weeks for the most terrific tomatoes in town.” Why didn’t I find this in the spring? My son, Wayne, is a great believer of using Epsom Salts on his tomatoes at planting time.
