I was honored and blessed last Saturday when my home was chosen by Douglas Adkins, youth minister at Madison Baptist Church, as a work place for two van loads of teenagers from churches in Alpharetta, Cartersville, Atlanta, Conyers and Madison.

Our church family was saddened on Friday afternoon after hearing of the death of George Wilkes of Oconee County. He was the father of Shelia Thomas and Stacy Pritchett that go to our church. Our Christian sympathy goes out to his family during this time.
On Sunday morning we had a good attendance at church. We missed some regular members who were out. Some were sick and others were traveling. Hope they will all be back next week. We did have visitors. We hope they were blessed

The Dogs were strong at the plate, with Bancs Bowers going 3-for-5 with one run, and Dudley Spence hitting 3-for-3 with two runs.

Perpetuating an all-time undefeated streak, Morgan County’s Lady Dogs golf team triumphed over Baldwin County and Eastside High Schools this week.
Baldwin entered into the match last Tuesday without their number two golfer, but any disadvantage would have been neglible in light of the Lady Dogs’ sizable margin of victory. Lynne Laseter and Amanda Poland dominated on home course Hard Labor Creek, securing a 108-132 stroke win on a balmy, clear day. Laseter shot a 51 over nine ho
