Using the Independence Day theme, the hall was decorated with lots of flags and fireworks. Red, white and blue were everywhere.
July birthdays were recognized with Doug Borden leading the singing. Happy birthdays wishes went to Sue Dempsey, Gordon Kirby, Doyce White, Ramon Feazell, Patsy Frachiseur, Joy Borden, Gene Williams, Margaret Jones, Linda Donaldson and Albert Coble.
Minutes were read by Patsy Frachiseur and accepted as read. Terry Haney began the musical program by singing a cappella, “The Star Spangled Banner” and “God Bless the USA.” Terry has a beautiful voice and we all enjoyed her rendition of each song.
Lee Feazell, Danny Pointer and Terry Gallagher entertained with mandolin, banjo and guitar, playing old time, country, gospel songs written before they were born. Those who knew the words sang along. They entertained at the Hart Farm picnic and at the Frachiseur and Morrow lake homes cookout. We hope to have them again in the future.
Jerry Dempsey gave our devotional using Leviticus 25: 8-13 and talked about how everyone’s yearning for freedom. The jubilee year was treated as holy to the Lord. Burdens were eased, dignity restored. Jerry used Job as a good example with the hardships he incurred and how, with God’s mercy, more was restored to Job. God’s mercy cannot be exhausted Jerry closed with prayer asking blessings on the meal.
Thirty-one members and seven guests, Savannah Grace, Amanda Scott, Randy Morrow, Claudia Griggs, W. A. Nickelson, Loretta Feazell and Caleb Smith, were present. Victoria Gallagher and John Gallagher enjoyed from full table.
