Congratulations to Angelina Frye and Larry Sutherland, who were married Friday, September 10, (Angel’s birthday) in the pretty Webb Banks Passive Park on Key Corner. Scheduled at the park, with the alternate site of Westside, the ceremony was performed by Brother Larry Sweeney. This was in view of the threat of rain, which came and went, and came and went, as you may recall on their day, Friday. But though a little damp, decorations etc., it was successful there where planned. Angel is the daughter of Martha Frye of Martha’s Hair Care and Larry’s mother lives here, but I failed to get her name.

Retirement Center News By Shirley Tucker, Activity Director By Shirley Tucker, Activity Director been so faithful to bring devotions to our Sugar Creek residents every other week. I know he will be missing his Dad. By the time you read this our residents will be having a great time buying themselves a dinner partner. Yep, it’s the time for our Gentlemen’s Auction once again and the ladies have been saving up in case they see someone they’d like to eat dinner with. They never know who is going to be in the auction until the auction begins. I’ll just say one thing - we don’t have a “dog” in the race this year so they better have their big money ready. We are also in the process of getting our Sugar Creek 2011 calendar together. We’re taking our ﬁrst picture today – it’ll be

Stantonians, remember the Town Meeting this Saturday, September 25 at 9 a.m., at the Town Hall. Be sure to bring your questions! I had a wild weekend and week, so I’m exhausted. Please look over me as this is not much of an article. We attended the wedding of one of our daughters last weekend in Dallas, TX. Deborah Charity Michael Sterbin was absolutely beautiful her wedding day to Matthew Dominick Sercely. The radiating bond between Deborah and her father (Allan) during their father/daughter dance was extremely touching. After the new couple headed for their honeymoon in the Cayman Islands, we focused on getting back to Arkansas to visit my children/grandchildren (since it was my birthdayyes I joined what I’ve found
Club”), then on to Poplar Bluff, Missouri to visit with Allan’s 95 year old Aunt Maisie. We arrived home at 1 a.m. and received a call at 3 a.m. that Aunt Maisie had passed away; she was one awesome lady and full of spunk right up to the end. We had a great time with her during our visit which made the long trip that day so well meaningful. So I’m back here in Stanton now and just learned of another burglary while I was gone. Apparently a home burglary, so please be careful! Have your neighbors watch your house if you are gone. We still have an active Neighborhood Watch, so let us know when you are leaving and we’ll help you alert others to be on watch of your home and possessions. As many of you may know Richard Turner has
recently spent some time in the hospital. The cannery hours are uncertain at this point, however, thanks to County Mayor Franklin Smith, along with Emma Delk and some sweet ladies from the community who have volunteered their time, the cannery is operating at a scaled back pace. Please keep Richard in your thoughts and prayers. That’s all I have for this week folks, hope to see a lot of you Saturday!

“Crisis of the subject of the message Sunday. The Apostle Paul was so depressed at one time; he made this statement “I despaired of life.” Elijah had just experienced God sending down ﬁre from Heaven on Mt. Carmel, but then Jezebel threatened his life causing him to go into a deep depression. God came to him, provided food and gave him a job to do. The roots of depression are disappointments, exhaustion, failure and discouragement. Elijah needed to know that God was bigger than Israel and his enemies. This is a truth we need to understand in America. Faith in God can bring us through the difﬁcult times. The Drama Club at Holly Grove Church presented a skit prior to the worship services, entitled, “Wet Paint.” Those participating were Kathy McClinton, Rebecca Hopper, Casey Long and Anne Marie Grimes.
