Greetings from Hickory Corner!
Today was a beautiful fall day. Goodbye to hot weather, and hello to fall. Leaves are changing colors, but some trees are already beginning to shed their leaves. My hummers are gone, but the birds and squirrels are still having fun at the feeders.
Mark your calendars as there will be a potluck meal at the Hickory Corner Community Center on Saturday, Oct. 22. More information to come in the next few weeks. Also, if you are interested in becoming a member of the HCC Center, please call President Philip Cranford at 989-2080.
Judy Cranford reports there will be a Phillips School Reunion held at the HCC Center the second Saturday in November. More information will be coming later.
I ventured out to the Barbeque Festival on Saturday afternoon and enjoyed listening to the live entertainment. I walked around and chatted with several folks. Looks like there was something fun for all ages. Of course, I stopped at the food tent for a barbeque sandwich meal. I took that home with me. The barbeque was deeeeelicous! Shout out to all those who volunteer their time to make the annual Barbeque Festival a success.
“Have you ever stepped outside in the late evening and looked up at the stars in the sky and thought about how much more beautiful this world could be if all Nations could get along and how lucky we are to be here and be a part of it for however long God lets us be. We are so blessed for our United States of America.” – unknown. God Bless America. Let us show love and compassion to everyone.
