We hope all mothers had a wonderful Mother's Day.

There were several who came across the miles to be with mother on her special day.

It was another blessing to still be alive.

Worship service throughout the community was a special tribute to all mothers.

Many words of appreciation as well as words of encouragement were given by members of each church family.

Evangelist Essie Jackson brought the message at the Mount Talley Baptist Church.

Several mothers seemed encouraged after hearing her message.

Jake Luke brought the Mother's Day message at the Stallo United Methodist Church.

His scripture was Matthew 1:16.

The mothers were uplifted after hearing his message.

A special friend accompanied him.

Pastor Bennie Hopkins at the Mount Ary Baptist Church spoke from the subject "A Loving Mother."

He had many good points to share.

A special presentation of flowers was made by Mrs. Mary Hopkins.
