By KAY MEALIO

It’s time to lose an hour of sleep; on Sunday, Daylight Saving Time begins, so turn your clocks forward one hour Saturday night, or you’ll be late for Sunday services.

There will be a 50th wedding anniversary celebration for Watt and Bertha Tucker at the First Baptist Church. Everyone is invited to come and visit with Watt and Bertha on Saturday, March 9, from 2-4 p.m. No gifts please and come in casual dress.

Spring break for the Perrin school district is March 11-15.

The Perrin Baptist Church will host an Easter egg hunt on Wednesday, March 27, following the Wednesday meal. They are asking for donations of candy needed for the Easter egg hunt – non-chocolate, individually wrapped candies, which will fit in a plastic egg are needed. The church members will stuff eggs for the hunt on Wednesday, March 20.

Perrin-Whitt Players-in-Progress participants had an exciting time recently, having the honor of performing at a Harlem Globe Trotters game in Wichita Falls, Texas.

After their performance they met some of the players and got autographs.

Preschool Story Time in the Perrin Elementary school library is 10-11 a.m. on March 13. For more information, see B. J. Cox in the library.

It’s not too early to begin cleaning up Perrin. The spring-clean-up date is Saturday, April 6. Time to bring trash is from 8 a.m. until the dumpster is full or noon. If you need help call 798-9246. No tires, paint cans or electronics can be taken.

Food distribution at Perrin Advent Christian Fellowship Hall will be Saturday, March 16, 9-11 a.m. Enter through the north side of the church.

On the third Saturday of each month, there will be a canned-food distribution at the Advent Christian Church, located at 300 S. Marks St., in Perrin. The food is provided by the County Probation Office and distributed throughout the county. There are no requirements to receive food except it is for people who live in the Perrin area or live in the Perrin-Whitt CISD. For more information, contact Debra Tillery. Several of the local churches in Perrin have also been asked to help stock the pantry.
