Carolyn Clemmons, her friend and son spent last weekend in Asheville, N.C., visiting her sister, Virginia.
While there, they visited other family members and some friends.
The following ones who are celebrating their birthdays this June are friends who play bingo at Harriman Community Center every second and fourth Mondays: Peggy Gunter, Ernell Renfro, Geraldine Harmon, Tom Collins and Mrs. Woods.
Happy birthday to all of you.
To my friend Lydia Yette McKeldin and nephew Dana Thompson, I hope your day was a great one. God bless.
