Montezuma Community Center will be hosting our “Big Country Breakfast & Bake Sale” from 7-10 a.m. Saturday, March 11. Come out and enjoy homemade biscuits, gravy, scrambled eggs, bacon, tenderloin, coffee, juice or milk. Plates will be $7. We need volunteers to make baked goods for the bake sale. If you can not bring it that morning, contact one of the center members and arrange to drop it off early. Baked goods will be priced accordingly. We will also take membership payments or donations that day as well. Annual renewal dues are $25 after your first initial year of joining. We also take donations. We need more community involvement for our center and would like to invite people to join in. 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 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.
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. Every voice can count when you need to be heard. 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.
Mark your calendars now for Saturday, May 6. We will soon be announcing what the center will be doing on that day. It will be fun!

Please be in prayer for all local and federal elected officials as decisions are made, law enforcement, first responders, healthcare workers, teachers and administrators, and with all the upside down happenings in our world around us, pray daily. 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 those suffering from the flu, COVID and other seasonal illnesses and Clint Murley, Janeane Moore in recovery and awaiting test results, Ann Lowe in recovery, Sherry Fletcher, Chuck Beacham, Sandra Lott, Johnny Warren Garner, Faye Crouse, Kenneth Burkhead, Joann Fowler, Janice Morris, Dot Smith, Lisa Bishop, Jeanette Walker, Paul Schilling, Jennifer Paton, Nancy Crouse, Martha Cooper, Jake Richardson, Ann Morrison and others that are sick or healing. We especially want to remember the families of Mike “Spoon” Spratlin, David Morris, Yvonne Latham Jones, Raymond Hardin, Jerry Hardin and other families that have recently lost loved ones.
