Summer reading set for MMS
The school year will end on Friday, May 31 but the students at Macedonia Middle School will be required to read over the summer.
Information on the summer reading program will be sent home in report cards. Parents can also get this information from the front office at the school or the school website.
The reading requirement is different for each grade level.
Hood's Chapel News
The men at Hood's Chapel UM Church recently completed putting up a ramp for a community member who is in a wheel chair due to falling two stories from a building while working.
Over the years the men have built many ramps for needy people. This is just one of the things they do. They are always ready to do work for the Lord.
This is “Undies Sunday” month for Hood's Chapel. It's called that because every May the church takes up underwear for girls and boys, new socks, T-shirts, tote bags, etc. At the end of the month the box is delivered to the Callen-Lacey Home.
There will be a special singing at Oak Grove PH Church on Friday, May 31 at 7 p.m. featuring the Gaskins Family.
Happy Birthday from Providence Baptist Church to Sean Randolph (May 18) and Bonnie Thomas (May 20).
Happy Birthday from Hood's Chapel to Tod Shealy (May 6) and Del Litchfield (May 7).
Happy Birthday from Hickory Grove PH Church to Woody Litchfield, Bo Morris, Julia Morris, Christy Wyndham, Jacob Wyndham, Crissy Morris, Shane Morris, Morgan Thomas, Kaitlyn Bradley, Danielle Martin, Aden Hass, Michelle Mitchum, Velvalee Orvin, Chevon Allen, Pam Sieben and Cammie Cox.
