The Richards Civic Club met July 9, with 28 members of the community in attendance. According to the last adopted bylaws, four board members were nominated and elected. They were Greg Riley- president, Stephanie Schuler- vice president, Kara Hughes- secretary and Joan Teer- treasurer. A board meeting will be scheduled and will be posted along with a schedule for regular meeting soon. Greg Riley shared, “On behalf of all the board members, thank you for the opportunity to serve and make our community even better in Richards.” The Richards Civic Club meeting is held downtown in the old bank building. All are welcome to attend.

The Arthur Sauls’ Camp is a community event and it gets bigger and better every year. Mrs. Scribbling said she is extremely excited. It has been an exciting year for the camp that is held every year at the Richards Baptist Church. Mark your calendars for more excitement July 21, at 2 p.m. for the “Children’s Program. “These children put on the program themselves. Rev. Tibbs with the Richards United Methodist Church will bring the message. Everyone is invited. This community event is made possible by many volunteers and churches in the community and outside our community. Mrs. Scribbling wishes to thank the people and churches that worked, gave and did anything to make this successful.

The following community churches furnished food and items for the camp, Union Grove Baptist Church, Bays Chapel Methodist Church, Richards United Methodist Church, Crossroads Fellowship and Shiro Baptist Church. The community even extended outside of Richards with Montgomery Methodist. There were also many other sponsors in and out of the community; a big thanks to all.

With these hot days we have been experiencing, I have been doing everything I can to cool off. After working out in John McDonald’s strength training classes, I have been making it a point to stop by for a snow cone. John McDonald’s classes are at the Roans Prairie Community Center. It is nice having this so close to home.

We now have sno cones nearby too. These sno cones are as good or better than any I have had anywhere including Bryan- College Station. The service is exceptional too. The new sno cone place called Bite My Ice is family owned and operated by Mark and Lupe Finke. Their children Weston and Courtney along with Weston’s friend Jai Obrien do a great job helping to operate the stand. They are located across from Family Dollar in Roans Prairie and are open Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. till 7 p.m. and Sunday from 1 p.m. till 5 p.m. I stopped in one day after exercising and now they have me addicted. I stop every time I go.

Mark your calendars for Aug. 4, Union Grove Baptist Church will be celebrating 135 years!

Have a beautiful week!

Prayers for, our president, our country, Tere Phelps and Marie Tomkivits.
