For we are convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor death, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God! Romans 8: 38-39.

The Lord truly loved the little children. This Saturday, May 5, we will honor the little ones of our town at the Annual Children’s Museum’s luncheon, home tour and fundraiser to make our museum the best that it can be for our town! We begin at 11:30 Saturday with champagne, lunch, and our noted speaker, Monroe’s Mil Bodron, now of Dallas and Houston fame! Immediately following is the tour of the fabulous homes of the Joe Holyfields the Ronnie Myricks, the Eric Edwards, and the historic Cooley House! Sponsors and the Board with Executive Director, Melissa Saye, are hosting a reception honoring Mil Bodron in the outstanding Park Avenue home of Leigh Ann and Stacey Goff! The Goff home was recently featured in House Beautiful’s March issue. That is quite an honor for Monroe and we are so proud of the Goffs and daughter, Margaret Ellis.

Monroe’s bridge icon, Loretta Rivers, and her team of four girls placed second place at the recent National Championships in St.Louis.


The Neville Boys Tennis Team won the 4A State Championship Friday last. It is the first state title since 1957 or 60 years ago when Nat Troy, the late Jim Altick and Bobby Johnson were leading the tennis team.

Thursday last, close family and friends gathered at the great Maison Orleans home of Anna Claire and Ed Seymour for a lunch of lump crab crepes with Swiss cheese from Cotton Country and the late Marilyn Irby. The veggie was fresh roasted asparagus spears with the finale: divine Meringue shells garnished with lemon sauce and strawberries. The occasion honored Pat Barham who is moving to the Texas Hunt Country where her family has roots near Camp Waldemar!

Martha Hayden gave a fantastic review sans notes of “Ghost Soldiers” by Hampton Sides, the epic account of World War II’s greatest rescue mission, at Potpourri Book Club at the home of Lillian Gentry. Joy Loomis is the new club president following the talented and irreplaceable Jane Hayden. The May 11 meeting will be at BDCC’s Courtyard.

Good news...

Sixth-grader Brown Snyder, Suzanne and Jerry Wolff’s cute grandson, shot a hole-in-one on the Par 3 hole of 107 yards at David Tom’s, LSU great’s Shreveport teaching course. Terry Reeves, 78-year-old friend, has two holes-in-one at the BDCC this year! We have friends in high places!

Love is patient and kind, never arrogant or rude and does not insist on it’s own way... from 1st Corinthians...

Let’s remind each other!
