Huguley News: Happy citizens from happy Valley Baptist

Well Hello Huguley friends, It is good to have you drop back in to check on your friends and neighbors again today. I look forward to it each week. I have really been missing you guys. My column has found a resting place, I think. Look for me on Saturdays now, since we are no longer getting a Monday’s paper. I am hoping you will still support the Huguley column. It just took us a little while to settle down. I will accept news any way you’d like to send it. Email me at strictlynews@charter.net or you can text me at  706-77-6550 or send it to me on Messenger or Facebook. Lots of options ought to give everyone a method of  choice. Just choose the one you’d like to use. We would all appreciate it.

Happy Citizens from Happy Valley Baptist met at the church Tuesday for their Game day. We meet twice a month: Once for a day of BINGO or other game, and lunch and once for a time of devotion and luncheon. We enjoy lunch every time we get together. Man! It was a great spread this past Tuesday. Some weeks it runs slim, but, this week, every one really must have been hungry! We had more food than usual. It almost looked like Homecoming lunch! Attending this week were Susan and Willard Eason, Jack and Sue Nolan, Gene and Eva Monroe, Jerry and Janis Carmack, Pearl Taunton, Jeannette Tilly, Faye Tines. If you’d care to join a great group of folks, just come on out on the second or fourth Tuesday at 11:30 and join us. We meet in the fellowship hall. We’d love to have you!

Willard and I have been spending a lot of time riding around the area lately. I don’t guess that is such an odd thing except we usually are headed off in different directions. This week, we drove all over Huguley, which we hadn’t done in several years. We are always on our way somewhere or in a hurry. This particular day let me tell you what we saw. We saw all sorts of spring things going on. We saw repair works going on at several homes, freshly turned up earth getting ready for spring plantings, blooms bursting out everywhere; we heard birds heralding spring, saw dogs running just for the sake of running; we saw several folks giving their cars a spring bath or sitting on the porch in the afternoon sun.  I know spring is on the way, but, I am realistic enough to recognize that we will probably have some more cold weather. After all it is only the first week in March. Be prepared for old man winter to stop back through here.

I wanted to remind everyone to mark your calendar for the event taking place at Happy Valley toward the end of the month. Our Walk with Jesus will be presented March 16th, 17th, 23rd, 24th, and 30th. You will need to call and make reservations. Tours will run from 6:30 until 9:00 or until all folks are served. We look forward to lots of folks coming; we want everyone to have the opportunity to experience the walk. You will feel your way through the walk and it may just turn your life around. Bring all your family and friends. A lot of folks have invested a lot of time and effort into making it a great journey. It is a free presentation. We are
handicapped accessible and have golf carts and wheelchairs for folks that have issues walking. Call 706.590.1453 to make your reservations. They are filling up already.

East Liberty Baptist Association WMU is hosting a Ladies Luncheon Saturday March 17th  from 11:00am-1:00pm Eastern time, 10:00 am -12 Central time at LaFayette Heights Baptist Church 1200 AL Hwy 77 in LaFayette. Lieutenant Tammy Booth with the Lee County Sherriff’s Department will be the guest speaker on women’s safety. For reservations contact Delores Pitts at 706-518-8772 by March 9th.

Well, I am going to close  for this week. Please don’t forget to give me a call if you have something you would like for community to know from your area of Huguley. I will also take news from Cusseta and Fairfax in the same methods. I really miss hearing from those special folks too. So help me out here friends and let’s get back in the saddle for keeping our Valley abreast of what is going on around here! See you next week, I hope.
