News from the Hickory Corner Community of Chester County


with Dot Patterson

Greetings from Hickory Corner!
Today has been a beautiful day, but the news has forecasted possible wintry mix and colder temperatures. This is not great for those who have planted flowers, crops and gardens already. Mother Nature is not playing fair.
Terry and I visited his Aunt Ellna and T Roland last week. I always try and take T something sweet to go with his coffee (butter brickle bars this time). Hearts to Ellna who makes beautiful flower arrangements every year to decorate 20 or more graves at Caves Spring Cemetery and Woodville Cemetery for Decoration Day. She has been busy the last month putting them all together. She has been doing this for many years.
Donny Patterson reports there will be no meeting this Thursday, April 22, at the Hickory Corner Community Center. A meeting will be scheduled in May with more information coming soon.
We are thankful for the garbage collection facility for our community located on Cave Springs Road. Hearts to Eddie Bryson and Glen Keller who are very friendly and helpful. They encourage everyone to recycle which I have been doing for years. My sons Greg and Terry always enjoy chatting with the guys when they are here visiting. Keep up the good work, Eddie and Glen.
Remember in prayer: Arlan Porter, Ann Bennett, Richy Butler, Ladelle Clark, Mildred Smith, Martha Autry, Ann Morrison, Bonice Martin, Peggy Whitman, Jim Ruth, W.T. Roland, Peggy Lard, William and Eddie Luttrell, and Donna Lynch. Please continue to pray for those who are dealing with COVID and other sicknesses. Also remember in prayer those who have recently lost loved ones.
If you would like to add or remove a name to our prayer list, please call me.
If you would like to rent the HCC center for your special event, please call Nancy Patterson at 608-1159.
Folks this is your column. Please call me at 989-3315 with tidbits, birthdays and anniversaries. It is difficult to write this column without your help.
Please remember to spread kindness wherever you go. Reach out to those that are lonely and always greet others with a smile. You will be surprised at the difference a small act of kindness can make to someone. “A little thought and a little kindness are often worth more than a great deal of money.” – John Ruskin
Make it a great week!
