Greetings from Hickory Corner!
With no signs of Covid-19 disappearing anytime soon, we must stay vigilant and stay the course.
Covid-19 cases are gradually increasing here in Chester County. Last Monday, we had 21 total cases, and this past Monday, there were a total of 35 cases. Remember that the CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where social distancing is difficult, staying away from people who are sick and staying at home when you are sick. Let us pray for a vaccine that will eliminate this virus. I have hope that our scientists, doctors and manufacturers can come together to develop a vaccine for Covid-19.

This is not be the first time that the United States has been through troubled times. Our country has survived world wars, disease outbreaks, depression and recession – tuberculosis epidemic 1909-1947, World War I 1914-1918, Great Depression 1929-1933, World War II 1939-1945, polio epidemic 1940’s-1950’s, Desert Storm, 1991, terrorist attack 2001 and much more. We do live in a great country, and with God’s help, we will get through this, but it is going to take everyone doing their part.
Thanks to my neighbor JoAnn Clayton for sharing her garden goodies with me: ripe tomatoes, yellow squash, zucchini squash and cucumbers. They will make my supper extra special! I will be making zucchini muffins soon, so, JoAnn, you will be getting some delivered to your front porch.
Remember in prayer: Arlan Porter, Walt and Ann Bennett, Richy Butler, Ronnie and Ladelle Clark, Mildred Smith, Mary Alice and Martha Autry, Ann Morrison, Bonice Martin, Peggy Whitman, Jim Ruth, W.T Roland, Peggy Lard and Buck Burkhead.

If you would like to rent the HCC center for your special event, please call Nancy Patterson at 608-1159.
Please call me at 989-3315 with any news and tidbits. It is difficult to write this column without the help of the readers. I welcome any news or memories you would like to share with all of us. Maybe you would like to share a new birth in your family, how you celebrated a birthday or anniversary, a favorite recipe, a trip, activities of your children/grandchildren or a random act of kindness that you have received. I am waiting by the phone!
Have a great week and stay cool!
