Hello everyone! Oh what a wonderful day God has given us. Another season is here. It is Fall; the leaves are falling from the trees, giving some of us more work to do, such as raking the leaves. It is time to cut the grass just one more time. It is time to put away the shorts, and the tank tops and bring out the jackets and the sweat suits; put away the sandals and bring out the boots. Well, my friends, while we are doing that, we can enjoy life by going out and supporting our local folks who work so hard in putting together events just for you.
Before we go on and tell you what is coming up, I want to thank the Arch Social Club for sponsoring the Rosa Pryor Music Scholarship Fund Press Reception Party. They not only donated the space, but also the caterer and the food. I want to thank two wonderful bands; Robert Shahid Jazz Band and Anthony “Swamp Dog” Clark Blues Band, who also donated their time and performance to the organization Press Reception Party. Each of these individuals performed as if they were getting a million dollars apiece. I tell you no lie! They did this for me and the children, and I will be forever grateful. I tell you, God is so good!
