Hello everyone, lots of local news to chat about, first our birthday wishes sent in from Gottrocks The Birthday Fairy. Gottrocks got greened in Savannah over the St. Patty’s Day weekend. Didn’t ask him what greened meant, I gathered he had more fun than most, judging by the mangled condition of his green-tinted wings!
We send our Happy Birthday wishes with nicknames to Tommy “Smokey” Alverson, Anita “Critter Whisperer” Silvers, Jonathan, known as “Joe-Nathan “ Boyce, Ashley Lindler, Sam “March Madness” Lake, Eddie”Moates” Bledsoe, Randy Bunch, Stacy Hansel, Charlene R. Christie, Virginia Southerland, Chris Sutton, Nancy Glenn, Jennifer Coppedge, Virgil Taylor, and Crystal P. Johnson.
Happy Anniversary to former Whitmire residents Rosemary and Robert Jones.
On a sad note, we send our best wishes and sympathy to the families of Mrs. Barbara J. Cooper Gilliam, Jean Brown, and Steve Radford.
Lenten Services this week at Whitmire United Methodist at 11 a.m. and March 28 at Sims Chapel Baptist at 11 a.m.
