Thank you to T.J. Kirk, our local police and others that presented a great program on Sunday, June 7, at Chester County High School football stadium. Everyone came together to unite as a community and show our support in the right way toward the family of George Floyd and say that we will stand as a community that will not allow racism to be a dividing factor in our community. Chester County is a strong community that pulls together when a need arises. 
I want to send out a big welcome to the Jaret Hornbeak family moving into Chester County on June 15. This is my oldest son. His family, Katie (wife), four children Madison, Lauren, Anthony and Jack, along with her father will become some of Chester County’s newest residents. We are excited to have all of them and will now be able to be involved more in our grandchildren’s lives. A new chapter opens for our family. Please pray for safe travels. 
Our hearts still go out to those who lost those young people in the recent tragic accident. Reach out in any way possible to continue to help support those families. They still need our prayers.
Most of us are starting to see things reopen. Do remember this virus is still lurking and do not let down your guard. If you do start to feel any symptoms, please stay home and get tested to help prevent the spread to others.
Montezuma sends out happy birthday wishes to Adriana Atkins on June 13, Reva Whitman on June 14, Reyna Thomas and Anthony Reddin on June 18.
Happy anniversary to Andy and Renea Thomas on June 17.
Please continue to pray for Kristen Daniel, John Phillips, Linda Tacker, Buck Burkhead, Anthony Cooper, Faye Crouse, Nancy Thomas, Ed and Betty Morris, Ann Morrison, our country and our government. Please be in prayer for the families that have recently lost loved ones. We especially want to remember the families of Carolyn Brasfield, Kenneth Kitchen, Hilda Bailey, Allen Miller and those families that are losing family members to the Coronavirus and are not able to say their goodbyes or have proper burial services, all the men and women that are working throughout the healthcare industry to do their part in caring for the victims of this virus and police officers, firemen, military and others that are being exposed while doing their jobs.
We would love to have some new people get involved in working with us at the community center. Please call me at 608-2857 if you would like to join in.
Please call Betty Cooper at 879-9078 to book the use of the community center.
Please send any noteworthy news you have to share in this column to gaylecox@bellsouth.net or call me at 608-2857.
Blessings to all of you until next time.
