Seven Springs had 39 in attendance for Sunday school. Some speculate the blazing summer heat may have kept some at home. More arrived for the preaching services.
Rev. Rodney Travis will be preaching at the Mexico Baptist Church on Sunday, July 27. He is the son of the late Haskall Travis and Katherine Travis of the Caldwell Springs community.
Debbie Holsapple is still recovering from surgery. We wish her well!
Happy 18th birthday to Jordan Wadsworth (July 30).
Our sympathies to the family of Betty Jean (Kirk) Owen, 78, of Frances, who passed away last week. She was a member of Seven Springs.
We accidentally misspelled Josh, Jacob and Star Mahn's last name in the last issue. In the July 10 issue, we also misstated that Rebecca Wilhoit was in town on Saturday. She was here on Friday, July 4. We regret the errors.
