You are invited to honor and remember our Veterans on Memorial Day weekend by purchasing a flag in their honor.  These flags will be placed on 11E in the grassy area between the credit union and the drug store.  A yellow ribbon with the name of the honoree will attached to an American Flag.  Cost is $10.  Flyers with all needed information are in the vestibule.  These may be mailed to the address on the flyer or given to any Ruritan member.

Recognition of our children’s (Pre-school-12th) accomplishments for this school year will be highlighted in the June newsletter. I would like to include every child and teen.

It can be a sentence up to a paragraph or two.

Greetings from the pastor and welcome to the month of May. The trees and bushes are

blooming as Spring is in the air. We had a wonderful Easter and thanks to all who helped or participated in the celebration. Our hearts were also saddened with the passing of Jimmy Oliver. Our Prayers go out to Pauline and all his dear family. During May, we will first celebrate Mother’s Day on the second Sunday of the month. We are thankful for our mothers whether they have passed on or remain with us. We also appreciate all the ladies in our church and what they have done and continue to do at Edgefield Church. On the Third Sunday of the month we will honor our graduates. Congratulations to all of our high school and college graduates. As the month winds down we will celebrate Memorial Day. We will pause and give thanks to all who have given the ultimate sacrifice for the Freedom we hold so dear. Please remember the Patriot’s Corner sponsored by the Piney Flats Ruritan. You can place a flag in memory or honor of a veteran or first responder. The cost is 10.00 and the proceeds go to fund the Veterans luncheon in November. Enjoy May, Enjoy Spring, Enjoy Life, and remember where all these good things come from. MAY GOD BLESS EACH OF YOU.
