Howdy. I have been asked where the word “gleanings” came from, so I asked Ruth Bradshaw. She told me that in the Bible, in the book of Ruth, Ruth would go behind the reapers who picked corn out of the fields, and they were called gleanings (basically the leftovers).
I heard that Juanita Sinnings has sold her home and has moved to the assisted living in Mountain Grove. I heard it was a real nice place to live.
Trent and Chelsea Jones have sold their home and are moving toward Cabool to be closer to his job.
Union Grove’s Bible School will be May 28 – 31 this year.
Some dates to remember from the school: Early childhood screening May 6-8; kindergarten screening May 9-10; kindergarten graduation May 7 at 6 p.m.; 8th grade graduation May 14 at 7 p.m.; senior graduation and baccalaureate May 10 at 6:30 p.m.; and last day of school May 16, dismissed at 12:20 p.m.
Sorry to hear that Bob Gilmore passed away. He used to be our administrator at the Norwood School.
Robert Gray is still not feeling well. He’s been in and out of the hospital.
Opal Chadwell (mother of Bob Chadwell) fell a few months back and she is in the Seymour nursing home.
The Norwood drama class put on a play called “Murder’s In The Heir”. It was so funny; I loved it. The kids did a very good job, and Kathy Bradshaw, the teacher, did great with the decorations and props. She said she couldn’t have done it without her husband Rusty. Rusty, your hard work paid off!
Fun Facts: Norwood was founded in 1881. In 1981 we celebrated the Norwood Centennial. The Norwood High School history class, under Mr. Bob Fields, made a historical book and the information came from Ethel Atchison, Bill Blanton, Lucile Jarrett, Flossie Cramer, Inez Davidson, Cleo Cole, Elva Hylton, and M.J. Hoffman, and that’s where I get my information.
Thought: 2,013 years ago, Heaven touched the earth. The rest is His story.”
Until next week, God bless our little town.
