There will be a Poor Man’s Supper Benefit for Jennifer Martin Overby at the Patrick Springs Christian Church, Saturday, November 7. The church is located at 23716 Jeb Stuart Highway in Patrick Springs, Virginia, (across from J.C. Joyce). Supper starts at 6:00 pm and the cost is $5 a plate. Jennifer, who also happens to be my cousin, has been battling cancer for several months. She and her husband, Keith, and their son, Joseph, live in the Aaron’s Corner Church community. I ask that you support this worthy cause and to please keep Jennifer and her family in your prayers.

The “Our Communities” initiative group will meet at the Francisco Community Building, Monday, November 16. The “souper supper” will start at 6:30 pm and the discussions will begin at 7:00. A dessert buffet will be available at 8:30 pm. Everyone is invited to attend and discuss what’s important to them concerning our community.

The Ruritan Club is sponsoring a Bingo event Saturday, November 21, at the Francisco Community Building. Hot dogs will be available at 6:00 pm and the games start at 7:00. Prizes will be cash and the cost is $20 for 20 games. Come out and enjoy the fun!

Many prayer concerns this week. As I mentioned, please pray for Jennifer Overby but also remember Colleen Collins, Maryln Johnson, Archie Spangler, R.W. Goins and Larry Dean Tilley. All these precious people and their families need our prayers and support.

I am now on Facebook. So, if you have any news for me, you may contact me there too.
