Victory Bible Baptist Church will be having a one-day Vacation Bible School on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. There will be food served and after all lessons are finished there will be a hot dog supper with all the trimmings, desserts and drinks. All ages are welcome and invited to attend. Come on out and have fun, food and fellowship. If you don’t have a ride, call 336-413-2612 and a church bus will pick you up. The theme is Answering Genesis Gold Rush Discovering the Rock of Ages.

I lost my brother-in-law, Charles Kennedy, in death on Sunday afternoon. He is survived by his wife, Ellen, of the home; two sons, David (Karen) Kennedy and Harold Kennedy, both of Jonesville; two daughters, Mary Jane (Doug) Combs of Ronda and Sarah (Dewey) Reed of Jonesville; six grandchildren; three great-grandchildren and one on the way; two sisters-in-law, Nelda (Stacy) Brown and Barbara Spainhower, both of Shoals; and several nephews and a niece of Shoals. Charles will really be missed. He was a devoted Christian and a devoted family man. He will be missed but never forgotten. Our loss is Heaven’s gain. To all other family members, may God bless you each and everyone. You are in our many thoughts and prayers.

Gene and Marie Scott of Waxhaw came up Friday and visited Charles and family in the hospital. Then he came to Shoals and enjoyed a visit with Aunt Ozell Scott, then on to Boonville to visit Evelyn Dinkins before returning home. It sure was good to see and visit with them again.
