Elder Willie Oliver’s children celebrated the Fourth of July with him at his home where they all enjoyed a pork barbecue. Cooking the pig was Master Cook Calvin Tolbert who does an excellent job. They had all the trimmings to go with it. Also enjoying this occasion with him and his children were some of his grandchildren, great grandchildren, sons-in-law and daughters-in-law and their friends.

Monaray Powers and her niece Kelli Hall of Gainesville, Fla. attended the wedding of Savannah Powers and Kevin Zinter in Baytown, Texas this past Saturday.
