Lanark News: Community church begins adult Sunday School

By Pat Sewell Funderburk Special to the Times

Hi Y'all, Happy Valentine’s Day and Presidents Day

Happy Birthday to all of those February birthdays among our Lanark residents. We discovered one year that there were lots of us. I would like to say a Happy Heavenly Birthday to Jim Chapman who passed recently.

To all of those people who did not get the message that the Lanark Village Golf Club Yard Sale had to be canceled, I apologize. It was a decision that was made at the very last minute and it is hard to get the word out. We appreciate so much those of you who support us by coming to our sales, but please remember that the sales are a lot of work by volunteers to benefit an important cause. We will reschedule it at a later date.

The regular meeting of the Lanark Village Golf Club, Thursday, Feb. 11 will begin at 6 p.m. at Chillas Hall. Please join us.

The Lanark Community Church has started an adult Sunday School. For those of you who want to attend, it starts at 9:45 a.m. and will be held in the fellowship hall next to the Sanctuary.

Get your calendars out, I'm going to give you some heads up!

Thursday, Feb. 18: The city of Carrabelle will have a Planning and Zoning Meeting at 2 p.m. The agenda includes the Family Dollar store issue. Public is invited and it will be virtual as well.

Tuesday, Feb. 23: The city of Carrabelle will host the second of three workshops which help communities take action to build and enhance their local economies while staying true to what makes them unique and also enables a competitive advantage. Workshops will be held at City Hall, 5 to 7 p.m.. You can attend with mask and social distancing, or via Facebook livestreamed on the City of Carrabelle Facebook page.

Saturday, March 13: Camp Gordon Johnston Museum sponsors their annual Parade. The American Legion Post 82 and all of their associated groups are having a Cook Out at C-Quarters, so plan to stop by ‘cause it is really good food. Stay tuned for more details.

Wednesday, April 14: There will be a non-jury trial before Circuit Judge Jonathan Sjostrom, who is presiding over a lawsuit between Franklin County, and Timothy and Christina Saunders. The suit concerns a land use change from residential to commercial, which if granted, would enable the land to be used to build a Dollar General store or other commercial venture.

Please continue to follow the guidelines for staying healthy.

The Lanark Village Bingo started back with all the precautions on Wednesday, Jan. 6 at 6:30 p.m., doors open at 6 p.m. at Chillas Hall. Please come for a fun, something to do, evening that will help support Lanark Village Association.

There is Trivia at the Crooked River Grill on Tuesday evenings at 6 p.m. Many of our Lanark people enjoy this activity.

ORDINANCE (#77-1 #5) OF THE DAY: No structure facing a court shall be extended beyond 11 feet from original walls nor closer than 10 feet to the property line. (These ordinances are specific to Lanark Village Apartments and in most cases, your property line is halfway to the sidewalk on the lanes front and back). The meaning of “court” is the front of your apartment; the rear is where your water meter is located.

Please try to stay strong, safe and kind.

Love Lanark!

Please remember to send me an email or message me on Facebook if you have anything come up that you would like to see in print.
