Oodles show for garden club's noodles

By Sharron Hudson

MINERAL WELLS — MILLSAP – As Valentine’s Day came and went there were some wonderful events surrounding it!

The weather cooperated and brought out a great crowd for the Neighborhood Home and Garden Club’s Spaghetti Dinner on the evening of the 13th. The Community Center was turned into a romantic Italian restaurant complete with beautiful lamp lights. The ladies of the club were the hostesses and waitresses, and made a really cute picture with their blue club aprons on. Being their first spaghetti dinner, the food was delicious, and the whole affair was a great success for the club. The ladies express their appreciation to everyone for all of the support.

On the same evening the folks of Midpoint Chapel had a game night. There was a wide array of finger foods for supper, and games ranged from Yahtzee to dominoes. This was a very busy weekend for the church, as Sunday morning was the men’s prayer breakfast and there was a lunch featuring red, white, pink, and chocolate foods. Those who attended these special activities really enjoyed the fellowship and fun!

Over at Soda Springs Baptist Church, the family there enjoyed a Valentine Banquet with a delightful menu and good attendance.  The highlight of the party was when three couples were chosen to play a version of the newlywed game. The couples included Don and Martha Baker, wed 48 years, Bro. Ronnie and his sweet wife Brenda, wed 21 years,and almost newlyweds Matthew and Raetina Wright.  When all of the fun questions were answered and the scores came in, the  unexpected result was the couple with the least amount of years were the winners.  Congrats to Matthew and Raetina!  

    The kids at the elementary school are getting in practice for the annual jump rope-athon for the American Heart Association. Families will also enjoy another Strong Fathers’ Night on Feb. 25, with the theme being reading. May the jump rope-athon and reading night be a great success for the kids!
