The Rockville United Church was canceled March 24 due to a blizzard like snow storm. I think this was the first time I can remember not going to Palm Sunday church because of snow.

Mt. Zion Home Bible study held each Tuesday at 7 p.m. in the Tom and Beverly Pelkey home. Nine were present to study the Bible. You are always welcome to join us.

Mt. Zion club met in the Marge Zink home for the regular meeting, time was spent tacking quilts. At noon a taco dinner was enjoyed. Roll call was a household cleaning hint. Our thought was, make a great big deal out of little pleasures. The April meeting will be at the home of Beverly Pelkey April 17.

Recently Louise Gregg entertained several friends for lunch. A delicious meal was served. To make coffee you need to plug in the coffee pot not the toaster, Louise. Makes for a good laugh and a time to remember.

Taberville Volunteer Fire Department will celebrate their 30th anniversary April 7, at the fire barn and we invite you to join us for refreshments from 1 to 4 p.m.

Spring is having a hard time setting into the Mt. Zion area. Buzzards are here; neighbors finding red mushrooms by the buckets full.

Spring flowers are blooming, a dead armadillo along the roadside and snow. I’m sure spring will get here as always.
