Mark your calendar for the upcoming Francisco School Reunion Saturday, October 3, at the Francisco Community Building. A covered dish lunch will be served at 12:30. Anyone who graduated from or attended Francisco School is invited to attend. I’ve never been but I’m really looking forward to going this year.

Remember – we have a Gun Raffle-Poor Man’s Supper at the Francisco Community Building September 12. The supper (pinto beans with all the fixins) starts at 6:00 pm. Tickets are $20 and this includes 2 suppers. Proceeds go toward the upkeep of the community building.

And – fall is in the air! Fall Festival Bingo will be at the Francisco Community Building Saturday, September 19. Hot dogs will be available starting at 6:00 pm and the games start at 7:00 pm. The price is $20 for 20 games. Prizes have a “fall” theme. Hope to see you there!

Also – Collinstown Presbyterian Church is having a revival service Sunday, September 27 – Wednesday, September 30. Austin Caviness (former WXII meteorologist) will be the guest speaker. Special singing scheduled each night. Services start at 7:00 pm. Definitely looking forward to this!

Finally – a special thank you goes to all my friends and neighbors who brought food, said comforting words, gave countless hugs and sent up prayers for strength during these past few weeks. The death of my mom, Mildred Overby, though expected, was still extremely hard for us. May God bless each and every one of you.
