Wadley-Bartow seniors thank participants
The Wadley-Bartow Senior Citizens Second Annual Walk-A-Thon was a tremendous success.
At approximately 7:45 a.m. on Saturday morning, Aug. 21, 2009, we assembled on the grounds at the Wadley Senior Citizen Center. Deacon Bennie Johnson lead us with prayer and Officer Meadows and Officer Mendez of the Wadley Police Department immediately escorted the group onto Highway 1, and we proceeded north to begin our annual walk. Our destination was the Wadley City Park.
There, under the trees, we enjoyed a morning of fun and games. Kara Pringle with the assistance of Cora Hill grilled hamburgers and hot dogs. The old as well as the young had a rocking good time.
To our many friends and well wishers in Wadley and Bartow your presence and financial support are noted and appreciated.
Thank you to all of our out of town friends:
Tony and Lisa Thomas, Melissa, Travis and grandchildren;
Eric, Cameron and family of Jacksonville, Fla.;
Marion and Diane Smith, Karissa and Brian Cameron of Greensboro, N.C.;
Robert and Debra Hunter’s son, Fontaine, Fort Benning;
Jean Franklin, Stone Mountain;
Angela Carswell, Lawrenceville;
Corey and Keisha Hunter and children, Norcross.
The Wadley-Bartow seniors are grateful for your support and participation.

Cry Out America is Sept. 11
Daily the national news is bad and we keep hearing that things are going to get worse. Is there anything we can do about it? Yes, there is; II Chronicles 7:14. “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
Within the last few days we heard of a gathering that is going to take place all over America this Friday. As far as we know, Jefferson County was not being represented in this. Although this is short notice, it is possible to pull this together with your help.
Please join us at the Courthouse steps this Friday, Sept. 11 at noon to help us participate in “Cry Out America.” This will be a non-political meeting. On this tragically historic day of 9/11 we will join thousands of other United States citizens “crying out” to God for the healing of our great nation.
If you need to sit during the meeting, you might want to bring a folding chair.
See you at the courthouse.
