What nice weather we are having. It is a bit cooler but the air is so fresh. The trees are starting to turn color and soon will be at their best.

Sunday was a busy day at the Little River Baptist Church. There was regular church service in the morning. We were pleased to have Doug Letcher in church after recent surgery. He said he was sure the prayers of the people helped him over this surgery. I can say amen to that as it sure helped me as well. In the evening the church hosted the Cumberland Baptist Association Hymn Sing Service with several visitors from other churches in the area.
The Little River Church choir sang several hymns and the trio did their part as well as Pastor Karen and Betty Adshade. A time of fellowship and refreshments was held following this service.
I would like to invite everyone to the church this Saturday evening to enjoy the song of the choir directed by Betty Adshade. The choir has been practicing several weeks and I am sure you will be pleased.
A bridal shower was held on Sunday afternoon at the Leicester Fire Hall in honour of Natalie Gilroy, an October bride-to-be.
