Dorans travel to Metropolis, Ill., for Superman event
I send my sincere sympathy to the Ray Messer family in his death. I had only seen Ray one time briefly at Jim and Sylvia Moon’s house. But Jim and Sylvia, Jay and Hunter are neighbors of ours. I knew from Sylvia of her daddy’s sickness and his suffering. This was a family that was very close and shared much love. That part of the chain was broken but in heaven it will all be together once more. Now Ray is not suffering his pain is over. He is with his Lord.

The Buckhead Baptist Church had a good service Sunday. On July 9 their Bible school will begin at 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. It will be from Monday to Thursday. Joya Miller is trying to get a youth choir started and already has a good number. If there is a young person that would like to join she would be happy. Shannon Stone also works with the youth.

Don’t forget July 4 and the barbecue at the fire department at Buckhead. The band that played music at Old Buckhead Days will be playing. There will be bingo, bouncing house, and a dunking booth as well as a raffle. At dark there will be fire works. So much fun. It will be a day that will be fun-filled. Make your plans to attend.
