Published: Wednesday, February 12, 2014 at 10:27 AM.

Missed you at Bingo last night. Had a good crowd but we could have found you a place to sit and play. Maybe you can join us next week, Feb. 19 at Chillas Hall. Doors open at 6 p.m. I started calling speedball at 6:30 p.m.

Hope to see you at lunch this afternoon. Chow line forms at the Franklin County Senior Citizens Center at noon. Sarge and his crew will have a good lunch prepared for us. Minimum donation $4 will be collected at the desk. Be watching for you.

No, we won’t have hamburgers and chips Friday night at the Legion. We will, however, enjoy a steak dinner. The dinner will begin at 5 p.m. Come on down and enjoy the delicious steak, salad, baked potato, dessert and coffee. Your donation of $14 will be collected at the bar. Come on down to Camp Gordon Johnston American Legion Post 82 and enjoy Valentines Day with us.

On Saturday, Feb. 1 many friends, family and neighbors gathered at the First Assembly of God church to reflect on the life of one of the great ladies of Carrabelle. Frances Reynolds Brinkley was laid to rest. She was a longtime, close friend of mine and will be missed a lot. Pray for Frances ’ eternal peace and strength and peace for her family.

When I got home from the funeral, there was a message on my machine that another longtime friend of mine and great guy had passed away. Pray for Charles Smith’s eternal peace and for Carolyn’s strength and comfort at this time.

This Saturday morning, Feb. 15, your monthly sugar fix will be ready for you at the Lanark Village Boat Club. The members will prepare and serve your full breakfast of pancakes/French toast, bacon/sausage, eggs, juice and coffee and still only $5. Be watchin’ for ya!

There has been a change in bandleaders at the Feb. 15 Birthday Bash at Camp Gordon Johnston American Legion Post 82. Craig K and crew will provide the music. Party starts at 6 p.m. Fun starts when you come in the door. So come on down Saturday night to the Legion. That’ll be the place to be.
