The Bedias Civic Club will sponsor a Fourth of July hot dog social today at the Bedias Civic Center. All Bedias area residents are invited and encouraged to attend. The festivities will begin at 6:30 p.m. and feature hot dogs, chips and watermelon. We will have face painting and a watermelon seed-spitting contest and close the evening with a fireworks show.
Because of our Wednesday, July 4, celebration we will not have our usual first Thursday Civic Club meeting tomorrow.

•In going about our day-to-day lives, we sometimes forget about those of our neighbors who are residing in our local nursing homes, either for a short recuperation or perhaps for a longer stay. Please plan to take a few minutes, or a couple of hours, out of your busy day to pay a visit to our often-lonely friends and neighbors soon; and make it a habit to reach out in love and companionship to those who cannot get out and about in our community. Please, also encourage your pastor and fellow church members to visit with you in sharing the love of Christ in our community.
