Hattie Mae Hardin celebrates her 98th birthday

Special belated happy birthday wishes go out this week for Hattie Mae Hardin who celebrated her 98th birthday Wed., July 13. She is a resident of Summerford Nursing Home and formerly a housewife and Granny to many related and non-related people in the Evergreen and Cedar Plains areas. Hattie Mae was always generous with her delicious meals and shared from her bountiful garden. She is in the Nursing Home recovering from a fall that she had on Easter Sunday. It’s a treat to visit her because she will give you a lift and cheer you up. We wish Hattie Mae continued recovery and we pray that mobility comes soon. She will help her great-grandson, Mac Hardin celebrate his birthday on Sun., July 24. God bless you Hattie Mae.

Hopewell Baptist Church hosted a community-wide barbecue on Sun., July 10, at 5 p.m. This was an annual event and different community churches were invited and had information on the tables for viewing by those attending. McKendree UMC provided materials on their Celebrate Recovery programs, which they have on Friday nights. The music was conducted by Justin Tanner.

The members of Shady Grove Baptist Church express Christian love and heartfelt prayers for those on the church prayer list: Charles Tucker, Baby Caden Barnett, Kayleigh McClendon, John Yarbrough, J. W.

A baby shower was given on Sun., July 10, from 2-4 p.m. by the families of expectant parents, Trey and Stephanie Summerford. Family and friends came to the Summerford’s home on Highway 55 West for the event. Decorations were similar to the blues and greens of the nursery for baby Wesley, who is due in August. Grandmothers, aunts and mothers provided refreshments of fruit trays, watermelon basket, ham roll-ups, redneck caviar, pecans, a bow tie cake in blue and white, lemonade and punch. Baby Wesley will be welcomed by two sisters, Hannah and Tenley and a host of relatives.
