Peggy and Donald Morris enjoyed having Ed and Susan Manning from Kinston, N.C. at their home recently. While they were here, Peggy and Donald along with Peggy’s father, Charles Truitt, and some of the walkers from the Mall took them to Tangier Island. They all had a great time.

A surprise 70th birthday party was given to Bob Jones, on Saturday, July 26, at the Delmar Fire Hall. His wife, Della, really put one over on him, he didn’t have a clue. Lots of his friends and family helped him celebrate his big day.

Our six-year old grandsons, Seth and Cody, have been trying to get me to buy them a pony for the last year. Sunday, Seth was helping me load hay, after sweating in the heat; he told me I didn’t have to buy him a pony because it was too much work. After seeing the movie, “Misty” at Chincoteague this past week, they were so excited and now they want a pony again. Back to looking again.

We send our condolences to the family of Clarke Philip Banks, who passed away on Thursday, July 31, 2003.

Members of St. Stephen’s United Methodist Church enjoyed a special beautiful duet “Pie Jesu” (from “Requiem” by Sir Andrew Lloyd Weber) performed Sunday by Shiloh Wersen and Noelle Burk.
