Marvin and Anna Anderson of Knoxville observed their 49th wedding anniversary on Nov. 16.

They were married in Harriman at St. Mary’s Baptist Church among family and friends.

The couple have three sons, 12 grandchildren and one great-grandson.

Both retired from X-10 Plant in Oak Ridge. They are faithful members of New Covenant Baptist Church in Knoxville.

They are former residents of Harriman.

May they continue to be blessed by the Lord.

Margie Moore, Julia Harris and her daughter, Alicia, attended a play at Calvary Baptist Church in Lenoir City last Friday.

The title of the play was “The Potter’s House,” written and directed by Minister Sandra Wilkes.

This play was back by popular demand. This drama was a reminder that God wants to do a work in our lives. This drama was well attended.

Get-well wishes are extended to Imogene Armes. She was a patient in Parkwest Medical Center.

She is now recuperating at home.

Our deepest sympathy is extended to the family of Stacia Stevens, who recently passed away.

Ama Boyd celebrated her birthday Nov. 8. Roy Boyd Jr. celebrated his on Nov. 10. Hope your day was a blessed one.

On Nov. 17, Davis Funeral Home invited friends to stop by the funeral home after church for a time of fellowship. Light snacks were served.

This funeral home has a new look. Lots of friends came and enjoyed the new makeover and thanked Mr. Davis for the invite.

He said we should be thankful as we pause and reflect on our many blessings.

New Century United Methodist Church will have a pre-Thanksgiving service at 7 p.m. Nov. 21. The public is invited.

Happy birthday to Charles Knaff, Sister Elfredia Williams and Jasmine Fuqua.

These are members of St. Mary’s Baptist Church.

Happy birthday to the Rev. James Knaff, brother of Charles Knaff.

To my nephews Eric Stone and Daryl Anderson, who celebrated their birthdays this month: hope both of you had a great day.

Happy birthday to Melvin Childress, too.

On Nov. 15, Judy and Freddie Barry of Harriman celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary.

They enjoyed a delicious dinner to celebrate their special day at Cracker Barrel.

Freddie worked 30 years for the city and is retired.

They are the parents of two sons, 11 grandchildren and eight great grandchildren.

They are members of Believers Voice of Deliverance Church, where the Rev. James Springs is their pastor.
