Cecilia Irene Dodson 862-3808 James Barnes prepared a proclamation honoring stepparents, which was presented to Congress March 25, 1999, declaring that the third Sunday of July be declared Stepparents Day. James is shown here on the floor of Congress with Rep. Jimmy Lee, who presented it to the Assembly of Congress. Thelma Dunn, Adah, charter member of Pirtle Chapter 449 Order of the Eastern Star, received her 65-year certificate of membership and faithful years serving the chapter, from Worthy Matron Audrey Sue Yates. It seems that one week no more than comes in until it is over. It is unbelievable how fast time flies. It seems that the older I get the faster time goes by. You would think when your work time is limited, that time would pass more slowly, but it seems it is just the opposite. ORGANIZATION NEWS. Saturday evening, Pirtle Chapter No 449 Order of the Eastern Star Celebrated its 65th anniversary since being organized. Only one of the three living charter members was able to attend, being Thelma Dunn, who still holds an office of Adah in the Order. Lucille Hager, who lives at Cecilia, was unable to attend this year. She is now 95 years of age and had a stroke several months ago, requiring 24/7 care. The other living member is Wilma Jean Pile Lockren of San Diego, Calif. This occasion always is celebrated upon our regular meeting night. Sandwich food, ice cream and a beautifully decorated cake for the occasion was served after the meeting. The Minnie Selby Order of the Amaranth will meet Friday at the Vine Grove Lodge Hall, for those who are members and wish to attend. The Cecilia Community Ruritan Club will meet at 7 p.m. Monday. All members are urged to attend and visitors are welcome. If you know anyone you feel is deserving of the Louis Crosier Public Service Award, please get your nomination in, it isn’t long until Cecilia Days when the award will be given to someone. For information, call Sue Hager at 862-3802. BIRTHDAY. Belated 90th birthday wishes July 14to Geneva Logsdon, who is still doing her own work, according to her daughter Millie Hodges. May you have many more happy birthdays. CHURCH NEWS. The McCubbins Family annual singing at Munfordville was held the past Friday and Saturday. They have been singing for five years, and other families sang as well. Wayman and Irene Aubrey and Marlean Brown attended both sessions, taking their own lawn chairs. They really enjoyed the outing. There was food there also for those who wished to purchase it. Joey and Cheryl Ward were baptized and added to the membership of Valley View Baptist Church Sunday, located on the Joe Prather highway near Vine Grove. Family members attended to support them in their decision. We celebrated the 3rd “Warm Blessings” birthday Sunday. College Heights has provided a place for “Warm Blessings” to meet since this ministry to those in need started on July 17, 2006. We are glad we could help so many in need and are happy that they will soon be moving into other facilities, where they can better care for those needing help. Upcoming events for the youth: Youth Yuk Day is from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. July 25. New Song, August 14-15, for sixth grade through college age. VISITS. Meghan and Caitlin Holzknecht spent last week visiting their grandparents Mr. and Mrs. Martin of Elizabethtown, who took them to visit a zoo in Tennessee. STEPPARENTS DAY. How many of you still observe Stepparents day on July 19, which was designated as the day to honor those stepparents who have served as parents for many years. This was presented to the assembly of Congress prepared by James Barnes and was presented to Congress March 25, 1999, Floyd and my wedding anniversary. Ironic since Floyd is his stepparent. Jimmy Lee who helped get the proclamation passed was also a stepson, and thought that stepparents should be recognized. THOUGHT FOR THE DAY. “People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well neither does bathing — that is why we recommend it daily.” — Zig Ziggler. HELPFUL HINT. Many stains can be removed successfully by soaking as soon as possible in cold water and detergent. Sometimes you may need to apply full strength to the stain after wetting and rub vigorously. I find this most helpful for fruit stains or blood. After treating wash in as hot a water as recommended for the fabric. After washing never dry in the dryer if not thoroughly removed, as the heat will set the stain. SUBMIT YOUR NEWS.
