I am sorry, but due to the rain, and most of our folks staying inside, or should I really say "me" staying inside, our community news will be short and sweet. I know a lot of happenings in the community, but I forgot to ask these people at church on Sunday for permission to write about them and it's too late and I am too tired to call them now. LOL! I am getting slack in my old age. I promise to do better next week.
