I’m looking for someone to take my place as community correspondent as I have not been able to get out in the community anymore and am unaware of all the happenings. I’ve been writing a column since around 1977 when Rick Smith was editor of the Informer and asked me to be the correspondent for this community. I have enjoyed it very much. The person I had in mind who I thought was perfect declined so we’re still looking for someone. If your interested please contact Jeff at the Times office. I’ll continue until he lets me know he’s found someone.
This month is memorial remembance and usually decorations are scheduled at area cemeteries. Cassville Baptist Church will not have their regular service on the May 16 for decoration.
Happy Mothers Day to all our wonderful mothers! You are so important in your calling and I pray Gods blessings over you.
