Billings Hill Baptist Church will have Community Youth Rally on Saturday at 6 p.m. Brother Luke Connor will be bringing the message. The Nunn Sisters will be singing. Pastor Brett Graham invites everyone to worship with them.

The Traphill Fire Department will have Bingo and a spaghetti supper on March 18 beginning at 6 p.m. Go out and support our great fire department.

I’m surprised to learn some folks still don’t know there’s a great walking track behind the Traphill Fire Department. It takes five laps to make a mile and it’s well lit at night, making it a safe place to walk or run.

New books available to check out at Traphill Branch Library include “The Invisible Boy” by Trudy Ludwig, “The Invisible String” by Patrice Karst, “Moana Little Golden Book” by Andrea Posner-Sanchez, “ My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She’s Sorry” by Fredrik Beckman, “Overview: A New Perspective of Earth” by Benjamin Grant, “The Sellout” by Paul Beatty and “Stand Tall, Molly Lou Melon” by Patty Lovell.

New DVDs to check out at Traphill Branch Library include “Pete’s Dragon,” “Florence Foster Jenkins,” “A Man called Ove,” “Middle School the Worst Years of my Life,” “Snowden,” “The BFG” and “Nine Lives. These can be checked out for a week with your library card.

Get well and prayers go to Wilbur Hawkins, who has been very sick lately.

Condolences go to the family of Zeb Johnson, who died on March 2.

Don’t forget to move your clocks forward Saturday night before going to bed so you won’t be late to church on Sunday. Seems like we just changed it back!

Happy birthday wishes go to Tony Triplett, Mason Joines, Phillip Sidden, Kella Ann Hutchison and Benny Bowers on March 6; Elsie Holbrook, Bobby Smith and Carter Reed Kennedy on March 7; Christie Hamby and Anita K. Alexander on March 8; Willie (Bud) Kennedy, Amy Bowers and Casey Prevette on March 10; Jean Blevins on March 11; and Tammy Spicer, Jade Videl White, Larry Norman and Marty Shaffner on March 12.
