Peachtree Community News
Sunday was another beautiful spring day as people gathered for worship at Peachtree.  Pastor Whitehouse spoke on the scripture passage from Romans 9:1-5.  His sermon topic was “What is the State of Your Soul?” part2.  The choir sang “In Remembrance”.  Sanctuary flowers were given by Ann Browder in memory of her husband, Bobby.  The service closed with the observance of the Lord’s Supper.

Beverly Wilson’s sermon for the children was about how it is natural for people to want to be “first”.  No one wants to be last but yet we put God in last place in our lives.  Whenever we have a problem, we need to turn to God first, rather than last.

The Fellowship meal on Wednesday night was enjoyed by all those who attended.  On Saturday morning the group who cleaned up along the highway were finished in record time.  Thanks to all who participated.  The next BBQ plate sale fundraiser for the Building Fund has been scheduled for May 14.

The Music Committee is still searching for an Accompanist/Choir Director for the church.  Please contact the Pastor with info regarding this.

The Spring Hope High School Alumni Reunion was held at the Ruritan building in Momeyer on Saturday evening.  A large group enjoyed the meal and fellowship.  There were graduates attending from classes from 1936 through 1968.  Dr. Matthew Delbridge addressed the group with memories of his school years and of the lessons learned there.  Several from Peachtree attended.

Jimmy and Pamela White from Seaforth, Virginia visited friends and relatives in the community last week.  They had lunch with Kezia and Beth Baines.  Jimmy is Keiza’s nephew.

JoAnn Blankenship got to reminisce with  some of her classmates who were in town for the Alumni Reunion.  Several of them gathered later at the home of Peggy Smith to visit and catch up with each other.  Present were Gay Shearer{Texas};  Mary Vester{Greensboro};  “Tick” Gupton {Rocky Mount};  Carol and Roger Strickland {Annadale, VA}; Maris Ashley {Roxboro}; Frank Lee Weaver {Charlotte} and Nan Bissette{Bailey}.

Ann Browder accompanied her daughter-in-law, Jeannie, and Carrie, to South Carolina over the week-end.  They went to visit Bobby’s brothers and their families.  Both of the brothers have had health problems lately.

Happy Birthday to Aubrey Farmer, April 22; Beverly Wilson, April 25; Somer Huey, April 28!
