I hope everyone enjoyed the long weekend, but its back to work today…Summer is officially in full swing now, even though some students and teachers are still in class for a few more days. The storm front that dumped flooding rains on parts of Texas and Arkansas over the last 48 hours blew itself out, mostly, before it reached us, and the worst of what is left is passing to the south of us this morning. There will be a few scattered showers today but we should miss most of it.
Summer means it’s time for Vacation Bible School at many area churches…if your church is hosting a VBS, send us the info and we will help you get the word out. Likewise, send us your VBS photos and we will include them in the paper and on our websites. If your church, organization, class or club has anything else planned, let us know about that too!
