Liquid Sunshine and Great Events

07 Sep 2018 2:59 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

Greetings,

We welcome the beautiful, warm, liquid sunshine that came though town today around lunch time. 

It was just the right amount to water the grass, make the air smell of rain, and to give a welcome relief from the heat.

We are happy to see the days reaching highs of only mid 90's and the nights cooler than we can remember for a while. Pray for more of the same.

Speaking of praying, we have quite a few friends and neighbors in and around town that need our prayers.  It just takes a minute to ask God to heal, mend, and repair those in need. We all can use more prayers!

Finally, we are sending you the updated event list as an attachment.  It is a great way to keep up with the activities that are fun, and family friendly in our community.

FUNNY CHAMBER CALL OF THE DAY-(we get these a lot)

I had a really neat call today from a former colleague who now works for FEDEX. He was trying to deliver a package in the country(Serbin) and couldn't get a correct address and the name on the package did not match the address he had, so he calls me and we do a quick Facebook search to find the Lee County Youth Football League and try to talk to someone who can tell us which delivery address is correct.

SO, my detective skills were put to the test today! But, happily we were able to locate the correct contact person and get those little youth football uniforms delivered before tomorrow's big game.

This my friends is why we are here! We don't know all the answers, but we know where to look to find the answers, and sometimes it all works out. 

Have a great weekend! Go Buffs!
