EVERYONE WAS A BIT SHOCKED to find a Methodist greeting the Baptist guests as they entered the dining area for the "big" homecoming din- ner Sunday. I attended church services at First Methbdist and was first to arrive for the "dinner on the ground" - except they had din- ner in their newly redecorated Fellowship Hall -- in air con- ditioned comfort. That was even better than the old time "dinner on the grounds". I declined from being first in line for dinner, hoping to get pictures of the preachers and some of the homecoming guests before I ate. Well, before those preachers ever came through that never ending line, I began to think they had been refused admittance. But they had re- mained at thq front door, speak- ing to all the visitors, thinking some of them might not stay for dinner. They should have made their way to the dining area first, for I think they ALL stayed for lunch. It was really heart warming to see so many old friends enjoying fun and fel- lowship." I know a little bit about the success on the Rev- erend H. B. Shepherd's minis- tery in Florala and the great crowd Sunday was evidence that many others have not forgotten. It was so good to see Andy and Kathy White, son and daugh- ter of the much loved, the Rev- erend Fred and Mayo White, who served the First Baptist /, for 10 years, preceeding Free- ! / :::- man Williamson. You just can't imagine the sheer torture it was for a "weight watcher" to pass through that long line of food and try to pick out non-fatten- ing foods. Since I could live off salads - I chose to eat salads and casseroles. I just passed in revue of the dessert tables and probably gained a couple of lbounds just looking. That was enough to drive a weight watcher insane. None that I have told believes that I passed up those desserts. I knew if I ever started I would have to have a taste of prac- tically everything on the table. And even my stomach won't hold that much. The First Baptists• are well underway ~/ith their renovation and improvement program. They have already carpeted the sanctuary and upstairs sunday school rooms and office, instal- led new cushioned pews, and painted the main building both inside and out. The new chairs for the choir have not arrived, nor has the velour draperies and decorative rods. When the main building improvements are completed, work will begin ....

They are using thepay-as-you- i go policy. When the renovation is completed, over $40,000 dol- lars will have been spent. We are proud of the Baptists. It is really good to see our churches grow and prosper. . . .
