Happy birthday to Janie Clemons, who celebrated her 86th birthday last Saturday.
Her children who live out of town and those who are here came together and gave their mother a birthday dinner. Sheila Smith was included because she is like a daughter to Janie.
Janie was one happy mother. Having her children home with her and all enjoying the meal that was prepared just for her.
Those who were present were Doris Johnson of Hopkinsville, Ky., Tasha Davis of Nashville, Kathy Hodge of Rockwood, Betty Johnson, Alice Clemons, John Clemons, Charlie Dabbs and Patricia “Pat” Buttram. These are Janie’s children.
May you continue to be a blessing to your children. May God grant you more years of life. We love you.
Betty Daniels from Cincinnati was a guest of Arvin and Pat Buttram for a week. While here, she visited me and other friends.
Her mother, Annie, was a former resident of Harriman. She attended Anointed Praise and Worship Church Sunday. She is first cousin to Arvin and Pat. She really fell in love with our city, especially the mountains.
Wishing Virginia Childress a speedy recovery after having knee surgery last week at Parkwest hospital.
Little Leaf Baptist Church had three nights of fall revival last week. The evangelist was Elder Kenneth Lewis.
The Gospel Chorus of St. Mary’s Baptist Church provided the music on Tuesday. Elder Lewis spoke from 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18. His subject was God’s People and the Church. He delivered a great message. He is the associate minister of Little Leaf Baptist Church.

The Retired Teachers Association recently had their monthly meeting in the home of Judy Bailey and her husband. Fourteen members and guests were present. While getting acquainted with everyone, we enjoyed some delicious finger food.
Mary Hickey is one of the retired teachers. Julia Harris and I (Louise Warmley) were her guests. Virginia Childress was unable to attend.
This was their month to socialize. So Julia and Mary sang two selections, and we all joined in on the third selection. A mother sang a solo, and her daughter played an instrumental piece. Judy Bailey talked about different types of songs, new and old, and her sister, Pat, did a reading.
We all really enjoyed each other. The food was delicious, and the fellowship was great.
They will meet again next month.
