The gospel singing held Saturday, March 9, at the Carlos Missionary Baptist Church was certainly well attended. There were approximately 39 people in attendance and everyone had a wonderful time singing the gospel songs of long ago, as well as some new songs. The singing began at 6 p.m. and continued until 8 p.m. There were several specials as well. Following the service, there was a time of fellowship over a covered dish meal. All present had a wonderful time.
