Family reunion

After missing 2020 due to the pandemic, the Isenhour family is thrilled to announce that their reunion is back on schedule for this year. On Aug. 14, the family and friends will meet just as they have for more than 135 years for a meal and fellowship.

Again this year, they will meet at Shearer Presbyterian Church at the corner of Shearers and Presbyterian roads in the church fellowship hall. The gathering will be called to order at 12:30 p.m. for a short business meeting, with a covered dish meal immediately following at approximately 1 p.m.

Plan on joining them for this festive, joyful event. For any questions, call Kevin Johnson at 704-662-8638.

Story time

Every Tuesday at 10 a.m. throughout the rest of the month is story time in Liberty Park for children up to three years old, weather permitting. Join for stories, songs and movement activities. Bring a blanket or lawn chair.


There are still a couple days left to be able to attend these two vacation Bible schools:

Did you know?

While searching through, I discovered several fun-sounding celebrations taking place in the next few days. They all fall on different dates, but that sounds like a good reason to observe them multiple times. Did you know that, according to the website, July 21 is National Hot Dog Day; July 23 is Vanilla Ice Cream Day; and July 25 is National Chili Dog Day.

If you celebrate them all together, you can enjoy a great hot dog with (or without) chili, and ice cream for dessert. And by the way, why not enjoy it all as you watch the opening day ceremony of the summer Olympics as the site noted that takes place July 23 with closing ceremony Aug. 8.
