Three lovely ladies, Angela Splain, Julie Parton and Trina Hart got together and had a really nice Tupperware bingo at the Tech building Thursday nigh. My wild guess is about 35 people attended and were winning prizes right and left. They plan to have more and there will be dealers.

Richard Grubb, pastor at Temple Baptist Church in Patriot invites everyone to “Bring a Friend” Sunday, March 30th. Fellowship will follow afterwards. Everyone is welcome.

The American Cancer Society Relay for Life had its kick-off meeting Thursday evening. Three teams were represented and we need many more to get a good showing for Switzerland County. We have always done really good, collected a big amount of money, had fun on Relay night at the Ogle Park and made new fiends. Sandy Dawson was there for the Patriot team, Patty Chase for the Florence team and Chuck Schmidt for his church team. Contact these people if you want to join us or bring your own team and team captain. The next meeting will be April 3rd at 5:30 at the Utility building. If you can’t get there on time come anyway and get information and material. We need your support. We need more good leaders. Call Patty, Chuck or Sandy for information. Also, Glenda Sullivan and Roy Duckworth.
