Congratulations to the Senior High going to the district tournament in Morrilton on Feb. 17-22 and for going to the Sr. High Regional Tournament at Mount Vernon on Feb. 26-March 1.

Last Friday, I took Sandy to the wound doctor and her leg is improving very slowly some. She has an appointment with the vein Clinic in Little Rock on the 24th please keep us in your prayers so that they can get this wounds healed so that she can go ahead and get her pace maker soon. We have an appointment with that doctor in March. 

Last Saturday, Alica and Libby Holbrook and I attended the Second Polar Plunge for the Area 17 Special Olympics in Russellville. This was Libby’s second plunge, she dress as Minnie Mouse and was so cute. Had another great successful plunge. These Plunges are getting bigger and better every year. 

Doris and Dawson Watkins, Betty Griffith, Landon Dowdy and I attended the Spaghetti Dinner that was open to the community at the Guy Church of Christ and it was good too. Naturally we were late it started at 5 p.m., but we didn’t get there till 5:30 p.m. Mom didn’t want to cooperate with Doris or me to get out of the house. But we won! She had a great time after she got there! She was the first person to yell Bingo when we played after everyone had eaten. As a matter of fact Doris and I both had a Bingo. A good crowd and a great bunch of fellowship. The 40 and under cooked and served all of old folks over 40. They did a great job and Brent Holly and Nathan Woody did a great job in their costumes and conducting the Bingo. 

I attended Landon’s Valentine Party in his kindergarten Class along with his mom at Theodore Jones Elementary and also attending was Noreen Glover who’s granddaughter goes there in another Kindergarten class. Landon was so proud that his Nana and Mom was there. 

Have a great week and remember to not drink and driver and watch for those students at bus stops. Send news to holtb42@yahoo.com or shout at me on Facebook.

Centerville

Lana and Rick Garter flew to Keystone, Colo., last week along with Allyson Gartner to spend a few days with Seth Moore. Seth moved to Colorado last year for a job opportunity and his family misses him terribly. I would say that a few days skiing and vacationing in Colorado is a great way to catch up.

Zane Golden and Kaylee Freeman represented Greenbrier Middle School at the 2014 Regional Tournament for Archery this past Saturday in Little Rock. Both the 6th and 7th grade teams walked away with 1st place medals and will get to go on to compete in the state tournament in Hot Springs this March. Coach Philip Golden started coaching the teams last year and the kids love it. I have to say that it is pretty cool to watch the kids as they compete.

The ladies of Centerville are getting a little time to reconnect this week end at Mt. Eagle with an overnight retreat. I am excited about the opportunity to spend some time with my ladies and expect to return home this afternoon feeling relaxed and refreshed and just full of thankfulness. There is something about hanging out with good people that reminds me how blessed I am to share my life with such wonderful company.

Have a great week, enjoy some sunshine, and take the time to visit with someone you haven’t been able to talk to in awhile. If you have news for the Centerville section of the paper, please email me at jennfreeman@windstream.net.

What beautiful spring weather we are having. It won’t be long before people will start getting ready to plant their vegetable gardens. Out in the country, people used to burn around their fence rows, cleaning up before plowing. Now, most people keep their fence rows clean and kept mowed good. Thank the Lord, and that helps keep down fires too.

Last Monday night our son, Danny Fulmer, cooked birthday supper for our son-in-law, John Sellers, we enjoyed a delicious meal of pork roast with all the trimmings and fried apple pies for dessert. We have several birthdays in our family this month. Ray’s birthday is the 27th and mine is the 21st. Today, Feb. 18, is Bobi Hendrickson’s birthday. Our McKissack twins was Feb. 1.

Tommy and Mary McElroy of El Dorado, Ark., visited his aunt, Earnestine Newberry, last weekend from Friday until Monday. She enjoyed them so much. Tommy worked cleaning her house inside and out and raked leaves off her yard. She celebrated her 88th birthday Feb. 11.

The Faulkner County Singing club will meet the second Sunday in March at Pleasant Hill Nazarene Church northeast of Greenbrier.

Then the Club Singing will meet at Springhill Baptist Church the second Sunday in April. The church is on Highway 287. Plan to attend these events if you can. It will be good.

I just read in this morning’s Log Cabin Democrat where Mr. Perry Daniels passed away. He was superintendent of International Shoe Company in Conway once, when Ray and I worked there. We liked him. His family has our sympathy. He visited our church once (Oakland Methodist) and had lunch with us at church.

God’s grace is always at work whether we see it or not.
