A very happy and healthy new year to all of you. May each of you enjoy every golden day in 2012. I’m sharing with you verses written by Catherine Pulsifer which were passed on to the sorors of Delta Sigma Theta sorority.
Happiness depends uponyour outlook on life.
Atttitude is just as important as ability/
Passion _ find yours this year.
Positive thoughts make everything easier.
You are unique with special gifts, use them.
New beginnings with a new year
Enthusiasm a true secret of success
Wishes may they turn into goals.
Years go by too quickly, enjoy them.
Energy may you have lots of it.
Appreciation of life,don’t take it for granted.
Relax,tae the time to relax in this coming year.
A big happy 99th birthday to what I think is the greatest, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. on Jan. 13th.
The 114th anniversary and patronal celebration at St. Agnes’ Episcopal church will be observed on January 22. You are welcome to worship with us.
Get well wishes always to Mildred, P.I. Ashley, Joyce Gibson-Johnson and all of our sick friends as mentioned in the December columns. Hope all of you enjoyed your holidays.
Congratulations and best wishes to winter college graduates from FAMU Bryon Clark, B.S. in history and Daniel Goodmond, II, B.S. in music education, Ahmad Newbold, B.S. in music cum laude, and Alexander Bethel, Savannah State who was awarded the M.S. degree in psychology.
Ahmad was a former FAMU drum major and followed in the “marching 100” behind his father the late Cecil Stanley Newbold, Jr. His grandparents were the late Pauline Humes Newbold and Cecil Stanley Newbold, Sr. Proud family members aunt Maud P. Newbold, cousins Stephina Washington-Newbold, Nikki Canon and Dwayne Cannon and a host of relatives and friends were on the scene to witness commencement.
Visiting mother and grandmother Gwen Thomas and all family members during the holidays were Twyla Murielle, Endrea Murielle and also Tramerka and Nikki Davis from Orlando, Florida. Ronald E.Frazier, III, son of Ronald E. (Diana B.) Frazier is now an acolyte. Time waits on no one. Congratulations little cousin.
Have a wonderful, safe 2012 but try to always be as careful as you can everyday. Don’t use your cell phone while you drive.
