Congratulations to Jalen Anderson, who graduated from Brookwood High School in Atlanta on May 25.

Jalen graduated with honors. He is the son of Dan Keith Anderson.

Christina Anderson graduated from Alabama School for the Deaf in Tuscaloosa, Ala., on May 30. We congratulate you, Christina, and hope you will continue to further your education.

Christina is the daughter of Dan K. Anderson. She and Jalen are sister and brother. They are the grandchildren of Curtis Anderson and Barbara Johnson.

We all love both of you.

St. Peter’s United Methodist Church in Madison, Ala., recently observed their annual Women’s Day with Karen McNair from Cookeville as guest speaker. Their theme was Forgiveness and Reconciliations in the Life of Christian Women, from Ephesians 4:32.

Karen is a wonderful speaker and a Christian woman. This service was well attended. Their Women’s Day was a great success. This is where the Rev. Danny Jefferson is pastor.

Get-well wishes to Kathleen Derrick who has been a patient in Oak Ridge Methodist hospital. She was recently discharged and is now recuperating at home. Kathleen, you are in our prayers.

We extend get-well wishes to June Howell, who has been a patient in Oak Ridge hospital.

Imogene Cooley, Aileen Green, Louise Miles and her daughter from Dover, Del., and Washington D.C., came to Knoxville to spend some time with their brother, Amon Reed, who is ill.

They came to their hometown of Harriman to see their sister Kay Knaff and relatives and friends. They came back to worship at St. Mary’s Baptist Church Sunday for our annual homecoming.

Kenneth and Annette Gillespie from Atlanta also came in for the homecoming.

All who attended both services were blessed, and we thank God for 122 years of services lifting up the name of Jesus.

Julia Harris and her daughter Alicia spent Memorial Day in Knoxville with Sybil and Tony Cannon and family.

Sara D’Burn, Tony’s mother, also joined them.

They had and enjoyed a cookout with all the trimmings. The food was delicious and was enjoyed by all.
