Thanksgiving is just two weeks away. Have you put any thought into what you have to be thankful for? It is nice to see the season change into fall and take a moment to reflect on God’s creation.
November 11 is a day to honor all veterans. Please let someone who has served our country previously or is currently serving know how much it means to you and thank them for helping to protect our country. With the way things are currently, this is the perfect time to reflect on veterans and what a great job they do for us continually.
Montezuma sends out happy birthday wishes to Charles Monk, Jr. on Nov. 9, Tommy Burkhead and Madeline Fontana on Nov. 10, Willie Davidson on Nov. 11, Joey Capooth, John Tidwell and Todd Brown on Nov. 13 and Dean Davis and Sue Ann Duke on Nov. 14.
We need more community involvement for our center and would like to invite people to join in. Annual renewal dues are $25 after your first initial year of joining. Membership dues need to be paid now to be considered an active member. We also take donations. Payments can be mailed to Edith Sills at 4475 Sunshine Rd, Henderson, TN 38340. We appreciate all our members and would like to have more events if we can get enough help to do so. Call Ann Moore at 608-2033 or myself if you have any new ideas for the center or wish to get involved. People who want to rent the community center should contact Betty Cooper at 731-879-9078 for booking. We ask those renting our facility to please follow our rules and show respect for the building. We try to keep it in the best order possible, and it takes everyone cooperating to make that happen. If you care about this community, please get involved in what is taking place to continue to grow our county and make it a better place to live and raise a family. Get to know what is changing in our local government, schools, churches and communities through the news, friends, your church, teachers, etc., and if it matters to you, there are ways to help make things better.
There is much spiritual warfare with society accepting things that go against who God is and what HIS laws are that we are to follow. Every day of life has its challenges, but if we look to God for the right path, it can be a good one. Please pray for Sherry Smith, Betty Sexton, Ruby Hannah, Mike Frank, Andrea Holland, Vicki Dickson, Donnie Brooks, Linda Plunk, Wayne and Lynn Frye, Lee Trice, Jerry Pruitt, Patricia Ledford, Mike Tedford, Clint Murley, Sherry Fletcher, Chuck Beacham, Sandra Lott, Faye Crouse, Janice Morris, Lisa Bishop, Jeanette Walker, Paul Schilling, Nancy Crouse, Martha Cooper and others that are sick or healing. We especially want to remember the families of Lisa Burton, Bobby Moore, Dianne Williams, Bettye Jo Powell and other families that have recently lost loved ones.
