A very big thank you to all family and friends for remembering my natal day with your many calls and/or visits. I will long remember your kindness and generosity. Thanks again. Wedding anniversary greetings are extended to Ronald Frazier I and Regina, Dec. 28th their 45th; Willie and Louvenia Toston, Jan. 5th their 38th. Best wishes to both couples. Blessings and prayers are extended to all persons in our community who are experiencing health challenges; please know that it is hoped that each of you will soon be restored to good health. Love to each of you.The old saying my how time flies is certainly true. Can you imagine that The Historic Saint Agnes Episcopal Church will be celebrating 114 years this year? The annual Patronal Celebration and observance will be held on Sunday, Jan. 22nd at 10 a.m. The Patronal Celebration Committee is being chaired by Mrs. Janelle Gilbert Hall and Mr. Torin Wallace is the co-chairman. Ms. Janet Brown chairs the Patronal dance/social which will be held in the parish hall on Friday, Jan. 20th and Mrs. Audrey Everette is coordinating an exciting bus excursion on Saturday, Jan. 14th. Members are getting the word out and of course, the community is invited to all affairs. Atlanta was the place to be for Sylvia Sands and children Michael Sands, Kathy Sands-Smith, Gregory Sands along with granddaughter Raynal Sands. They enjoyed the holidays with her daughter and son-in-law, Rhonda and Willie Turner and their children Bert Turner and Dr. Jasmine Guerrier. They reported having a fabulous time in lovely Atlanta. Until next week . . . you are my favorite people.
