Ruby Black and family had visitors this week. Mr and Mrs. James Lowrance from Salem, Ore., and their daughter Carla Axpan from Beaverton, Ore., were here for a visit. They also visited family in Clinton, Harmony Mountain and the Plant community. Pleasant Grove Masonic Lodge had its annual community fish fry this last Saturday. It was well attended and they had lots of music and good singing after dinner. Musicians and singers came from Cabot, Sheepskin Valley, Morganton, Walnut Grove and Clinton. I heard it was some of the best Pickin’ and Grinnin’ that they have had in a long time. Deer Hunting was open this week and Gary Ingram had family come up to participate. His granddaughter Nicki got her first deer and about a half hour later his daughter got her first one. Of course they had a great time and a lot of excitement. Joyce Burns had cataract surgery this week. She is amazed at what she could not see and it is so wonderful that it is over and done with and the world is bright and shinny.

The Dennard Fire Department is looking for volunteers. Nine members of the Dennard Fire Department just completed the Landing Zone training. There are several ways to volunteer so plan on attending their next meeting and learn more

at 6:30 pm and the November training day has been moved to the second Tuesday in November because of Election Day.
Nailbenders for Jesus is a construction mission of love that helps to contribute to the growth of local churches
and Dennard is a recipient of their help. This group of men and woman have been working at The New
Tabernacle Church (Zoo church) on Highway 65. They are remodeling three of the wood frame structures which
will house a sanctuary/fellowship hall and two small houses on the property. At the time of this article
I was unable to get a completion date for this project, but keep an eye out, and I will let you know more.
If you live in the Dennard area and have news call Jackie Sikes 501-253-4716.
