The annual homecoming football game was held in Iola Friday, Oct. 13, with a good number of people in attendance. Iola defeated Milano 40-7. Good going Iola. The king and queen were installed. They are Lindsey Gooch as the queen and Cadence Shive as king. Best wishes to both of them. The evening before there was a bonfire with lots of good eats, including hamburgers.
There was good attendance at Iola Hay Day at Iola Community Center. The event had lots of good booths and fun activities. There was also a cake walk with cakes and other prizes. All had a wonderful time. There was a parade as well. The fun began around 8 a.m. and ended at 1 p.m.
Evergreen Baptist Church had another baptism at the close of morning worship service. Rev. Jeff Morgan Baptized Deklen Shepherd and Lexi Leavell. Both kids had several of their family members present. May God bless them and their family members.
Area Iola residents are pleased that Zion Methodist Church has been reinvented on the outside. It really looks good. The church removed the name “United” from the church name. This really was a good change to the church’s name. May God bless them for this name change.
