Congratulations to all the participants last weekend, and thanks go to wonderful judges, sponsors and parents! This is one of the largest events in Chapel Hill, and like anything else successful, it requires a lot of work!

Remember the Community Sunrise Service Sunday, April 8! Yes, it's Easter already! The service will be held at Chapel Hill United Methodist Church at 7:00 a.m. This is a wonderful time for our first celebration on Easter Sunday for the resurrection of Christ! Everyone can join for breakfast afterwards!

Isn't it wonderful to have new babies in town! No one feels that more than Jennifer and Chris Lynch with the birth of their son, Ty Allen Lynch! Ty was born March 21, 2007, weighing in at 8 lb. .25 oz and measuring 20 1/2 inches. Mary Elise Lynch, age 5, is very excited about being a big sister! She's staying busy helping her parents with a new baby! Grandparents get pretty excited about these babies, too. Norman and Mary Margaret Henson of Chapel Hill and Judy and Larry Lynch of Murfreesboro, along with great grandfather, Alvin Wilson of Kittrel, TN are all wearing big smiles lately! Congratulations goes to this family! Ty, with your family and their friends, you are surrounded with love!
