Extra! Extra! Due to a conflict in scheduling the Auburn Sr. Center Dance has been moved to tonight. Put on your dancing shoes and grab a partner for the two-step, waltz, slow dancing, clogging and old time square dancing, with line dancing during the break. Bring you favorite finger foods to eat at 8 p.m. Doors open at 6 p.m. with get acquainted time. The $4 cover charge and proceeds from an Old Fashioned Cake Walk with homemade cakes, all goes to the band, Seventy-Nine Bluegrass.
This was a busy day for the seniors starting with a trip to Bright’s Antiques and lunch in Franklin.
Father’s day celebrations at local churches paid tribute to the special dads in our community beginning with breakfast for the men at New Friendship Baptist Church. Then New Life had fun and fellowship with families at the park.
This Sunday will be the last service conducted by Rev. John L. Weber at Pierce Memorial Methodist church. Brother Weber is retiring. Wish Bro. John and his wife Doris much enjoyment in the coming years. They have given much to this church family and everyone is most appreciative.
Was glad to see some of the Montgomery family gathered at Auburn Restaurant/Pool Room this week. Steve, recovering from knee surgery was there with his walker. Great to see him getting about. His brother Dairell was also out in his electric “hot rod,” enjoying the lunch with family and friends.
Well, with a little coaching from former player Billy Dorris of the Adairville Aces K-T Baseball league, I finally made it to first base on the Auburn team.
You will recognize the names found on the 1951 roster; Jimmy Nuckols, Claude Ashby, Benny Ward, Thomas “Butch” Garrett and Alvin “Hootenanie” Hughes. Three of these named were on the 1951 “Red” Garrison basketball team that went to the state championship. Butch Garrett’s wife Carolyn was part time scorekeeper for Auburn.
Now if I can get around the bases by collecting more names of Auburn and Russellville players, maybe I can score a run.
In the meantime, have a blessed day.
