News from the Deanburg Community of Chester County

I certainly hope that everyone had a great Thanksgiving. I did not manage to hit the newspaper’s early deadline last week. Cookies for Cancer will have a free homemade cookie/candy hand out at Hays Cash Saver and Henderson Family Pharmacy from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 12. Donations can be made at that time to the American Cancer Society. You can place orders for homemade pies, cakes, fudge and other desserts from now until Dec. 23 for Christmas. Please call Beth Everett at 731-658-6347 (land line only) or email

With so much unrest in our country, I pray that each of you believers will be praying continually for the situation, our government and salvation for the lost. Please pray for Mike Clayton, Mary Lou Weir Warren, Wayne Monks, Sr., Haskle Cox, Floyd and Sharon Wamble, Jimmy Ruth, Brenda Ada, Vicki Rush, Kristen Daniel, Faye Crouse, Nancy Thomas, Ed and Betty Morris and Ann Morrison. 
Please continue to pray for those dealing with COVID-19. We especially want to remember the families of Alvin Keeton Johnson, Jurilee Weaver Rouse, Tim Doyle, Garrick Sells, Walter Elliott Bennett, Karen Malone, Marcus Kelley, Marvin “Buddy” Richardson, William David Hensley, Sr., Jerry Lynn Crowe, Mary Heflin Patterson and other families that have recently lost loved ones.
