Hello from Enville! I hope everyone had a great week! Decoration Days have begun. Cemeteries in our area for the first Sunday in May are O’Neal, Mt. Zion, Grove Springs, Center Hill, Roby and Beech Springs. Those on the second Sunday in May are Woodlawn in Enville, Mars Hill in Leapwood, Milledgeville, Sweetlips and Finger cemeteries. On the third Sunday are Johnson near Enville and Cabo cemeteries. On the second Sunday in June is Holly Springs. Thanks to Pat Jones for this information! Be sure to make donations to the ones where you have folks buried for the mowing and upkeep expenses.
Mother’s Day is fast approaching, so treat your mothers to a barbeque and dessert meal from the Enville Volunteer Fire Department, so she can enjoy her day with family and not have to be in the kitchen all day. Beginning at 10 a.m. on Saturday, May 8, downtown Enville, they will have barbeque pork, chicken and bologna. Also, they are pre-selling barbeque rib racks for $20. To order ribs, contact Chief Thomas Gilham at 608-0696, Danny Johnson at 688-5129, Parker Herndon at 608-5995 or see any of our firemen. Please support your local fire department! The community center committee will have a bake sale inside the city hall. If you can donate any home cooked desserts, they would be greatly appreciated, call Pat Cates at 688-5125. The proceeds will go to help pay the utilities. Again, please support your community!
It was good to have Jim and Donna Wade visiting their farm. We always love seeing them, so hurry and plan another trip back to Enville! I hear that Tommy and Linda Wade will soon have their daughter from up North moving close by. I know they will all be happy about that! It is good to have Harold, Frankie, Annie and Charlie back in Enville from their car show trip.
