Chapel Hill sets 200th anniversary

Tuesday, June 24, 2008

Did everyone have a wonderful Father's Day? I know Tommy and our family did. We spent the weekend at the lake and just relaxed. Now it's time to get back to happenings in Chapel Hill.

Summertime is all about vacations, swimming, sleeping late and VBS. Smyrna Baptist Church is holding their VBS Monday, June 23-Friday, June 27 from 6 p.m til 8 p.m. This year the theme is "Outrigger Island, Living God's Unshakeable Truth." If you are at least 3 years old, you're welcome to join in and enjoy Bible stories, songs, activities, and food. Friday night will also be Family Night, where everyone can see what the children have done during the week.

The Fourth of July is always a special holiday to celebrate the independence of our country. This year we'll also be celebrating Chapel Hill's 200th settlement anniversary. There will be activities beginning at 7 a.m. and continuing throughout the day. It doesn't matter how old or young you are; you'll find plenty of things to do and see (and eat).

This is sponsored by The Town of Chapel Hill and the Marshall County Chamber of Commerce Chapel Hill Satellite Office.

The proceeds from this event will go toward a new monument honoring our veterans.

We can't get through July without the Tractor Pull. The Lions Super Pull of the South is scheduled for Friday, July 18, and Saturday, July 19. This is always the biggest event of the year for Chapel Hill.

Knowing the proceeds from this event go right back into serving our community makes it even more exciting. Be sure to keep that weekend open, and invite everyone you know.

Have a wonderful week. Stay cool.
