PEACHTREE COMMUNITY NEWS
On a beautiful Sunday morning, Peachtree folks gathered for a Memorial Day worship service.  Sanctuary flowers were given by Diane and Frank Bunn in honor of their daughter Jamie Lynn for her birthday.  Pastor Whitehouse’s sermon topic was “You are the Light of the World. “  It was based on Philippians 2:12-18. He says that when we receive the gift of salvation, it changes us.  God gives us the ability to carry out His will.  After recognizing those present who served in the armed service, the choir sang,”Prayer for America”, under the direction of the pastor.

Sympathy is extended to Ann Browder and her family, in the loss of her brother-in-law, Jack Browder of Sumter, SC.  He passed away early on Sunday morning.  Funeral arrangements are incomplete.

Lillie Belle Griffin observed her 92nd birthday on Sunday.  Her son, Robert, spent the week-end with her.  He prepared a five course meal for her birthday lunch.  He topped it off with a chocolate birthday cake that he made.

Melba and Jerry Hobgood spent a few days over the week-end in Calabash, NC where they played golf with some friends.

Last week Beth Baines accompanied her sister, Patsy, and her niece, Heidi, on a vacation to Nags Head.  They visited the Elizabethan Garden at Manteo, which was a real treat.  They enjoyed shopping, walking on the beach as well as eating fresh sea food.

Cecil and Beverly Wilson spent the week-end at Atlantic Beach.

Lynn and David Griffin spent last week in Pensacola, Florida visiting with his brother, Melvin and Signe. This has become an annual tradition with them.

The Spring Hope High School Class of 1949 held a reunion on Saturday afternoon.  They met at Parker’s BBQ in Wilson.  Attending from Peachtree were Patricia Wood, Della and Linwood May.

On Thursday evening the Senior Awards program was held at Southern Nash Senior High School.  For the past fifteen years the Spring Hope High School Class of 1962 has presented a scholarship to a graduating student.  The value of the scholarship varies from year to year, from $500 to $2000.  The recipient is chosen by the scholarship committee.  This year it was awarded to Stephanie Moss, in the amount of $2000.  It was presented by Committee Member, JoAnn Blankenship. Congratulations to Stephanie and to the Class of 1962 for this endeavor.

Prayer concerns are for the sin-sick world, for the tornado victims of the mid-west, and for the nation and those serving to defend it.  Community prayers are for the sad, lonely and sick.  Allen Macquinne is in critical condition at Nash General.  Carl Rich is critically ill at the Oaks of Carolina in Raleigh.  Melton Manning is improving but is still at Wake Med. Philip Sykes is in Rehab.  Others who are still in recovery are Catherine Gupton, Alvin Sykes, Lillie Belle Griffin, Nikki Cannon, Taylor Gupton, Patricia Wood and Alvin Edwards.

Happy birthday to Jamie Bunn, 5/29; Wilma Wester, 6/3; Johnny May, 6/3 and Denice Vick, 6/5!!
