Vacation Bible School a summer tradition

Published 1:15pm Tuesday, June 11, 2013

School is out and summer is almost here. What does that mean? You’re right, vacation Bible school, sponsored by our local churches. Growing up, I always looked forward to the week of VBS. At the time, we lived in Decatur and for the week of Bible school we would stay with Mamaw and PawPaw Maples who lived at New Center, so we could go to Bible school. We would always have such a great time. We would listen to and learn Bible verses, make crafts and we always had all the cookies and Kool-aid we wanted. Many of the wonderful ladies that took the time to help with VBS are no longer with us, but I will always be grateful for the time I spent with them. Check out your local paper because many of the vacation Bible schools are listed. If not, call the local churches. Christian love and sympathy is extended to the family and friends of Donnie Graham and Ralph Blankenship.
