Small Town Guy 4-H is taking a break this summer, they will meet again at 6 p.m. on July 3rd in the Guy Perkins School cafeteria. 

The FBLA and Junior Beta Club invites you to their Bingo on June 1 at 6 p.m. at Guy School. Come out and support them. 

Good News! Todd Watkins is recovering slowly but surely. They say he is getting back to himself so that is a good sign for sure. Todd, Vicky and family prayers are there and still on going for you. Get well soon. 

Please keep the following in your prayers, Betty Griffith, Wilma Stevenson, Frankee Dee Battles and Montine Tarkington. These are a few of the older people in our community that are not able to get out much or not at all. Prayers to the families too because they carry a load also. 

Prayers for Lynn Acre, who was in a car accident recently. Don’t know much details but thinking of you Lynn.

Congratulations to all the candidates who were elected to run in election in November! I had a great late afternoon at Bethlehem Church where I was at the polls in support of Andy Shock for Sheriff! As I was sitting there with my sign and drinking ice water, I got to listen to some locals who had gathered in the back of the church playing music and singing. What beautiful music it was. Thanks to each of you for the entertainment. I truly enjoyed listening to you play. And I enjoyed talking to Mr. and Mrs. Roberts too.

School is out when you read this morning. So be careful out there driving and slow down please because you know how children play and forget to look so it is up to us to keep our children and grandkids safe. Drivers pay attention and slow down. No excuse for anyone not to turn in to me where you’ve been, who visited you or what vacation you went on so please take time to call me or drop me a line or two so I can share with others. You would be amazed at the people who read our column. People in state and out of state, so keep the news coming and everyone have a safe and blessed summer.

Send news to holtb42@yahoo.com or call 679-3299. Remember to drive safely and don’t drink and drive whether you’re driving a car, truck or even a boat please be careful.

What beautiful weather we are having, perfect for farmers to harvest their hay, but we need a good rain really bad. Our lawns have turned brown. Ray has been watering some in our garden, but that’s not as good as rain.

Our homecoming last Sunday, May 20th, at Oakland United Methodist Church, was a success. There’s always someone missing that was here last year. The afternoon singing was very good, thanks to some good directors and pianist. Raymond Lewis Bush always does a great job as our chairman, and we appreciate him very much.

We have lost another long-time member of our community. Mr. Lowell Grisham went to join his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, last week. The family have our sympathy.

Ray (my husband) is back home from having major surgery at Conway Regional Medical Center, May 9th. We have so much to be thankful for, so many prayers sent up on his behalf. We received (out of state) calls from people in Florida, Kansas, Tennessee, Missouri and Washington, assuring us of their prayers. "Praise God for answered prayer." Thanks to our friends and relatives everywhere.

We are great-great-grandparents of a bouncing baby boy, Alexander Ray Vaughan. Born May 14th to Taylor Vaughan. We and great-great-grandmother, LeLa Robertson of Conway think "he is a sweetie."

Out of town visitors, since we came home were Pat Mooningham of North Little Rock, Von and Violet Lee and daughter, Glenda Sellers, and her granddaughter, Leah of Vilonia. Also, my sister, Johnnie Sue and husband Jim Johnston of Springfield, Mo.

Johnnie and Jim also visited Jim’s sisters in Conway, Allie Dean Yarbough and Alma Jean Simmons, who aren’t well.

They spent the night with our sister, Mary Ruth Montgomery and husband, Roy in Greenbrier, then returned home the following morning. It was good to see them since we had not seen each other since Christmas.

Mother’s Day guests of Rosa Lee and Robert McElroy were Sarah and A.J. Gardner and Rosie’s great-grandson, Jesse, and Rebekah Collins, Dale and Sheryl Collins, and Tommy Collins, all of Conway. They enjoyed their day together.

Have a good and safe Holiday Weekend. God looks at each of us through eyes filled with love.
