Zach Massey was the winner. Miriam Foster walked in the race. She was the oldest. She won an award. I don’t have the names of all the winners. I am sorry. There were several musical groups. First one and then the others played during the day. That made it nice. They sold out of food.

Easter is such a special time. Christ arose from the dead that you and I, if you are a born again Christian, can have eternal life. What a Savior! What a gift to me if I accepted Him into my heart and to you! To any of you that have not accepted Jesus into your heart it is a simple sinner’s prayer. You can tell the Lord that you are a sinner. That you are sorry for your sins. Would He please come into your heart and save you. If you mean it He will do so then you live your life for Jesus. Why not make this Easter to come the best in your life?
