Blooms, birds, critters all return just in time to celebrate spring
Redbud trees at the edge of the woods across the road are in bloom. Clusters of seeds, keys, hang from the maples in our yard. Leaves are unfurling on the maples and oaks and other trees and bushes in the yard. The grass is green and was dotted with the bright yellow flowers of dandelions until the mower came a few days ago. Tulips bloom in our flower beds.

Go ahead and plant sweet potatoes
We enjoyed sweet potatoes all winter long from a fantastic harvest last fall. In fact, I still have a crate full in the basement that will feed us this summer.

Pastor Connie chose scripture from 1 Samuel 1:9-20 to base her Mother's Day message on as she spoke of Hannah. Hannah was a praying mother much in need today. Hannah was childless and harassed daily by others. She greeted the Lord often in prayer and became powerful in her submissive spirit.

HomemakeHs Clubs have Rich history
A large group of Jennings County women celebrated National Homemakers Week May 2-8, 1983.
There are six local Homemakers Club in the county with a total membership of over 125 women. Members of the clubs come together each month to plan special events such as the annual Jennings County Fair Queen pageant, the fair's Open Class exhibition and Blue Ribbon Parenting Night. They also learn new information and skills, enjoy their fellowship and just plain have a grand old time during their meetings.
County president Marilyn Goodpaster will be the first to tell you the clubs are just as relevant today as when she first joined in 1961. "I grew up with the clubs," she says. In fact, when she enlisted, she joined the same club that her mother and grandmother were in.
