It is officially Spring! The calendar labeled the first day of spring as March 20th but there could still be cool weather up until Easter. Onions, taters, and radishes are looking good in the garden since we have had some warmer days this week.
Congratulations to Aaron and Alexsa Baylus on the birth of their son, Brodee Scott Baylus. Brodee was welcomed into the world by his parents, big sister Bailee, and lots of other family members. He was born Tuesday, March 21, weighing in at 6 lbs and 10 oz and was 19 inches long. From all reports the family is well and little Brodee is already home and with his family.
Just a reminder about the FFA Stew & Auction that will be held Saturday, April 1, at the school. Donations are always welcome. If you have a donation or know of a business that would be willing to donate something for the auction please contact Mr. McClure, the AG teacher. Even if you don’t have time to sit through the auction you can always come out and eat a big bowl of stew.
The school is also holding their annual PK and Kindergarten Roundup for the 2017-2018 school year. If you have a child that will be ready to start PK or Kindergarten next year feel free to take advantage of the early registration for them.
Before you know it, it will be time for the cemetery’s annual memorial day and homecoming. The service is scheduled for Saturday, May 6, at Miller Grove United Methodist Church. If you have family or friends buried in the cemetery you are welcome to attend.
Happy Birthday to Kay (Miller) Blanton, Kim (Miller) Fox, Cathy Stracener, Jackie Burns & Cody Jennings on Mar. 26; Betsy Stiles, Franklin Johnson, & Colten Baylus on March 29; B.J. Wright & David Tipps on Mar. 31. I also forgot one birthday from a few weeks ago. Little Jacob Tipps, son of Kevin & Michelle Tipps, celebrated his 1st birthday on March 5. I saw him not long ago with his dad and sister, Rebecca, at Faye Tipps’ house. Jacob and Rebecca were both so good and acted like they had known me forever, despite only seeing them a couple of times since they were both born.
As you travel the highways and byways don’t forget that all roads lead back home and back to Miller Grove. Please send me any newsworthy information. My email address is [email protected].
