My good friend, the late Ann Youngblood Crowe, used to say,

“As our bodies need sun, exercise and the right food, our hearts and souls need words of truth from holy scripture.”

From Neville, we are grateful for three leading ladies who recently celebrated 70 years at Neville: Joy James McElroy, Beverly Martin, and Agnes Jones Golson!

We just have great results from the Annual Ruple-Brown Golf Tournament. The scholarship, which is worth $8000 to the winners, will now be awarded to two recipients, in stead of just one, which has been our goal.

The 2018 winners of the Championship Flight with 55 at Calvert Crossing were the brothers Ron Shemwell and Clay Shemwell who are Virginia Cage Shemwell’s gifted boys and nephews to Dr. Mike, Carol and US Attorney Joseph Shelby Cage of Shreveport. Coach Ruple thought that Joe Cage was the finest athlete he ever coached. That is what he told me directly! Much credit to the Neville Golf Committee, players, sponsors and chairman, Pat Anderson, who began this event at the request of the Ruple Family with major sponsors, Joy and the late Bucky McElroy, through the James Machine Works. There have been 23 scholarships awarded and 99 per cent have finished their degrees! Luke Cagle, son of Dee and Taylor Cagle, is the 2018 scholarship recipient and will attend LSU.

For the ladies, the new Vogue is featuring the antique cameo’s as back in style along with shells from the beach made into jewelry! Gold coins are a must so pull from your safe and start wearing them.

Hope you have one of the gold and enamel bracelets that were made popular by the Schlumberger oil magnets... red with gold X’s and many other jewel tone colors trimmed in gold.

Two of our favorite Monroyans have been honored by the Jr. League of Monroe where they have been singled out for their volunteerism and their commitment to excellence for our communities: Mossy Sartor Guinn, the Louise Seymour Award; and Heather Aulds Guillot, the 2018 Volunteer of the Year Award! Congratulations to both and their families for supporting their efforts!

The local Duplicate Bridge Unit sponsored all day games for Altzeimers research on Friday last! Some $3200plus was raised for this greatly needed charity! Kudos to Martha Young for making this happen in our town! Many thanks to all the sponsors who gave prizes for the auction. Loretta Rivers and Barbara Norris won the most points,

Martha Young and bridge partner, Elizabeth Bryan of Hebron, Miss., had a Friday morning high score of 70.3 percent.

Thank you Lord for being everything we need at all times...

We can count on you to guard our steps, bless the paths ahead, and carry us when our strength is gone!

We can do all things through Christ who strengthens us, just for the asking...Ephesians 3:13
