Ceola Lawrence spent two weeks in Texas with her son, Shannon, his wife and daughter. They took her to Johnson Space Center. They went bowling, to the movies and attended church on Sunday. Ceola said she really had a great time.
Shannon's son, Shannon Jr., who lives in Cookeville, drove out to Texas to visit with them. The name of the church they attended was Wheeler Baptist Church. The Rev. Colry is pastor there. The church is so large they have to have four services.
Ceola has 15 grandchildren and expecting another one soon. She has 18 great-grandchildren.
Ceola is a lovely Christian lady. We are happy that you had a great vacation, and we did miss you.
I want to extend a happy birthday to Ruby Davidson, who celebrated her day last month. This greeting is belated, but I hope you had a great day.
Birthday greetings to our dear friend, Imogene Cooley. She celebrates her birthday Sept. 11. Imogene is a former resident of Harriman, and she has lots of friends and family members here. Enjoy your day, Jean, and be blessed.
Last Saturday, Mel Clemmons hosted an entrepreneur workshop and motivational seminar in the Princess Theater. More than 100 attended this seminar.
The purpose for the seminar was to motivate and inspire the youth of the community to believe that the impossible is possible if you believe.
Mel is a great young man. He is married and has five sons. He loves young people and will do all he can to help them succeed in life.
I hope the things that were said by Mel, his brother, Roy, and the five people on the panel encouraged the youth to follow their dream and to take in all that Mel had told them.
Several grants were given out to some youth.
We really thank Mel for a job well done. And may God continue to bless you and your family.
Mel is the son of Carolyn Clemmons and Mel Clemmons Sr.
The Encore presentation “Mistaken Identity” was well attended Saturday evening at Jamieson Center. Those who were characters in the play were really good.
This play was written by Mary Alice Douglass and Alicia Harris.
During intermission, Kamari Moore and her daughter did an interpretive dance. All enjoyed the dance, too.
We encourage Mary Alice and Alicia to continue writing plays. This was a great play.
I was overjoyed when my friend of 32 years surprised me with a visit Saturday. After attending the seminar, we ate at Cracker Barrel where we saw other friends of ours. Later, we attended the play at Jamieson Center.
My friend is Norma Burrep from Nashville. She is a dean at one of the schools in Nashville. We were so happy to spend time with each other, and we thank God for this friendship.
Norma is married and the mother of one daughter and one granddaughter.
Evelyn Sanders has been a patient in Parkwest hospital. She is now recuperating at home. Evelyn, we wish you a speedy recovery.
