Welcome spring! Although I really shouldn’t complain about the winter, it was fairly mild. But I love this time of year. Alfred Dunkley said he was going to plant potatoes this week. Now is the time for planting all the early crops.

The Ruritan Club will be sponsoring Bingo at the Francisco Community Building Friday, March 31. Please note that I did say Friday. Hot dogs will be ready at 6 pm and the games start at 7:00 pm. All proceeds go to the Relay for Life. The cost is $20 for 20 games. This is such a worthy cause, so please come out and support this.

We will have a community meeting Sunday, March 26, at the Francisco Community Building. Items to discuss are any advancements toward the repurposing of the school and plans for our Francisco Community Market Day. Please make this a priority on your “things to do list.” The meeting starts at 3:00 pm.

We have a new church in the neighborhood. Crossroad Community Church had its first meeting Sunday, March 11. Pastor Tracey Collins said the service went well with 103 people attending. Services are being held in the Francisco Community Building on Sundays at 11:00 am until other arrangements can be made. Everyone is welcome to attend.

Virginia Hill, of the Collinstown community, had a birthday this past week. Happy Birthday to this very sweet lady!

We have several people on the sick list this week. Lois Overby is still a patient at Forsyth Hospital. Ruth Jefferson, R.W. Goins, JoAnn Padgett and Gary Gray have all had health issues. Please keep all these precious people and their families on your prayer list. Also, remember the Franklin Moore family in your prayers. His daughter, Teresa Jefferson, lives in the Collinstown community.
