Fireworks, VBS and rain on the 10th?


— By KAY MEALIO



It sounds like we’re in for some hot days in the next few weeks, but that’s not surprising, since we’re almost into July and it’s expected.

Fred looked at his records and the old wives tale about if it thunders in February there will be a frost in April and rain in July. He shows that it thundered on Feb. 10 and we had a frost April 10, so I’m counting on a big rain July 10!

The First Baptist Church in Perrin is having their annual July 4 celebration at the church with fireworks and plenty of refreshments.

The program will begin when it gets dark. Everyone is invited to attend and enjoy the celebration of the 237 years of independence of our country.

The Sparks Spring Advent Church will be having their VBS July 24-26 from 7-8:30. The theme of the VBS is “God’s Mighty Kingdom.” The program is for all ages of kids and there will be a break and snack time. On the last night, July 26, there will be a program with a picnic following. Everyone is encouraged to come.

The Summer Meals for Kids program at the school is for all kids 18 and younger. They are invited to come have lunch at the PWCISD cafeteria for FREE. They don't have to be a student at the school to come eat. Time for the meals are Monday through Thursday, 11:15 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. and will be offered until July 11th (Closed July 4th).

The Summer Nutrition Program is paid for by the USDA and program sponsors. www.summerfood.org

I received a note from the elementary principal here in Perrin that Elementary Meet the Teacher Night will be on Thursday, Aug. 22, at 6 p.m. in the elementary gym. Also the supply list for all elementary grades is posted on the school’s website at www.pwcisd.net.

 

Thought for the week: The ideal summer resort is where the fish bite and the mosquitoes don’t.
