We have been blessed in Siloam! On Saturday night, we got over an inch of rain. On Sunday afternoon, we got four-tenths. That is a blessing. And, yes papa Bob is watching that garden grow! He declares that the bean vines have doubled in size. We’re just beginning to get a few squash and cucumbers, some kale and little tomatoes.
I’ve made blackberry jam and have frozen and shared some blueberries.
Well, we had a very successful Fourth of July Fun Day in Siloam on Saturday. Our parade was the best. The entrants lined up at Hardy Brothers’ Trucking at 9 a.m. We had 53 entrants, and they were all outstanding! There was a lot of waving and candy throwing.
The Copeland Ruritan Club sold hot dogs and drinks and the Siloam Extension Homemakers sold desserts. We had some good music and the young folks had lots of fun things going on! It was a fun day!
We are saddened by the death of Mr. Eugene Fulk of our community. Also, Mrs. Polly Jones of Pinnacle. They will be missed.
Peggy Smith was able to be back in church on Sunday. Her broken arm is still giving her a lot pain, but should soon be better. Audrey is still a bit under the weather. Maybe some much needed rest will help.
Sixteen youth and chaperones left after church on Sunday for summer camp at Ridgecrest. This is a beautiful place near Black Mountain. They should have some good stories to share when they return.
