•Mackie Bobo-White asks us to put a plug in for the Bedias Library and Museum (, we are going to have a summer reading program and we will continue to be open on Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 12 noon to 5 p.m., during the summer. We would also love to have volunteers to work two-hour shifts once a week this summer. For questions, contact Mackie Bobo-White at (936) 355-0742.

•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.

•Do you have a community or church event you would like included in our weekly column? We would love to share your news with our readers.
