Sending birthday wishes to Sarah Gardner, Lauren Collingwood, Gloria Pugh, Angie Clark, Frau Lois Cornell-Cash, and Lucio Bernardo! Happy birthday to Faith Baptist Church members Melissa Braford, David Johnson and Robert Gibson!

Faith Baptist Church will be having a song and praise service followed by communion on Sunday, Nov. 22. Faith’s Ladies Fellowship Time will be the first Monday of every month, the next of which will be on Dec. 7 at 10 a.m.

Special thanks to Lynn Williams for leading worship this past Sunday at St. John’s Episcopal and to Bert Buford for providing beautiful organ music. Safety guidelines continue; mask wearing, pew spacing, etc. Morning prayer is every Sunday at 11 a.m., unless otherwise presided over by clergy.

Heavy rains last week caused some minor flooding in our area. The James River rose to nearly 14 feet, just 3 feet below flood stage. Elk Creek was elevated a bit, but did not leave its banks. Some yards and driveways were flooded with standing water from excess rainfall, my own included. More rain this week could overflow some creeks and streams, again. Be mindful of water in roadways this week when traveling.

Deer will be more active over the next few weeks as regular rifle season gets underway. Be mindful of places when driving throughout the Valley where deer cross the roads frequently.

Any news, birthdays, anniversaries, well wishes or church updates you’d like listed? Please don’t hesitate to let me know.

    ALL 12 CHILDREN of Cornelia and William Washington likely gathered at the time of William’s 1903 funeral for this photograph in Michael Miley’s Lexington studio. Cornelia is seated in front (second from right); William may well be the subject of the portrait spotlighted on the back wall. William Lee Washington Jr. stands just below the portrait, in a white tie (back row, fifth from left). (courtesy of W&L Special Collections.)
