White Mills

Terri Spencer, 862-4604

Well, spring officially is here, but it sure doesn’t feel like it. My father-in-law pointed out this time last year the temperatures were in the 80s. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t want the temps to be that high, but 60s would be nice. Maybe this means we won’t have a summer of 100 degree temperatures. The good thing is with the cooler weather sticking around, we are not having the severe weather that we had last year. So all things considered, I guess this spring isn’t so bad after all.

ANNIVERSARIES. Happy anniversary to Sam and Adrienne Murphy, who will be celebrating 13 years together March 25. Congratulations to Howard and Ruth Young, who will be celebrating 52 years together, also March 25. In these days, that is quite an accomplishment. I wish all of you many more happy years together.

BIRTHDAYS. Happy birthday to Betty Sallee, Louise Williams and Willard McCoy, all March 25; and to Aaron Marsden on March 30. I hope you all have blessed birthdays.

COMMUNITY NEWS. Next Sunday is Easter and the community of White Mills will come together to celebrate at the Easter sunrise service. This year, the service will be held at Eastview First Baptist Church at 7 a.m. Many of the area churches come together to celebrate the resurrection of Christ by performing during the service. Everyone is invited to attend. Please come and join us for a wonderful time in celebrating the true reason for Easter.

GRAND CHAMPION. I received an email from my neighbor, Angie Smith, telling me about her son, Sam. Recently, Sam participated in the essay portion of the Jim Claypool Art and Conservation Writing Contest, sponsored by Kentucky Farm Burea and the Kentucky Association of Conservation Districts. The contest was open to students in sixth through 12th grades. He received grand champion of Hardin County. He was presented a trophy and a monetary prize at the Hardin County Conservation District’s annual awards banquet. Sam would like to thank his science teacher, Leslie Meredith, for encouraging him to enter the contest and his uncle, Patrick Preston, for serving as one of his sources of information in the subject area. Of course, his parents are very proud of him. Way to go, Sam. Your community is proud of you as well.

CHURCH NEWS. Smith Chapel United Methodist Church in Eastview is going to present a “Living Last Supper” at 7 p.m. March 28. Everyone is invited to come and share and participate in this Maundy Thursday Service.

This past Sunday, White Mills Baptist Church continued its celebration of serving the Lord for 175 years. Many of us wore bowties, hats and gloves with our Sunday finest. It was a lot of fun, especially since it was St. Patrick’s Day as well. There were a lot of green bowties. It was just a little reminder of how people used to dress for church on Sunday. On the third Sunday in April, we will continue the celebration by wearing old fashioned clothing. Come and join us and help us celebrate.

EASTER EGG HUNT. The Glendale Fire Department will have an Easter egg hunt at 3 p.m. March 30 at the fire department. There will be refreshments, a movie and pictures with the Easter bunny to be picked up from 1 to 3 p.m. the following Saturday at the fire department. For information, call Heather French, 369-2019.
