Sympathy to all of the families who lost a loved one recently. Our heartfelt prayers and good wishes go out to all of you in your time of need. You have our deepest sympathy.

Thought for the week: The best view comes after the hardest climb.
Looking for people to do volunteer handy work for individuals with disabilities. Work will include construction, plumbing, electric, etc. Call (434) 454-0918 and help the elderly. Some people can’t afford to pay for services, so this is a way we can help those in need for our county and community.
We must always have old memories and young hope. Memory is not so brilliant as hope, but it is more beautiful and a thousand times more true. A memory is what is left when something happens and does not completely “unhappen.”


News is due by noon Friday. Any news received after this time will not be included in this column. News can be submitted by calling (434) 568-0596. Leave a message.
