Calamity in a Small Town……

     On Sunday, January 16 four of our football players lost their lives in a tragic accident.  This has brought our high school to it’s knees.  The viewing is tomorrow night and the Memorial Service is on Friday night.  We had a Prayer Vigil and our church on Monday and packed the facility.  We also offered our church for anyone who needed counseling or just to hang out….no strings attached.  Our faculty and staff are all wearing ribbons to remember the lives lost.  It was supposed to be Finals week but the school district suspended finals because they knew no one would be up for it anyway.  School Districts throughout the county are stepping up to be there for us as well.  They chose to wear our colors all week as well as hold fundraisers to raise money for the grieving families.  This fatal accident follows a string of calamities our town has had to endure as we lost another football player over the summer as well as 5 Motorcyclists.  Please keep our town in your prayers.

  1. How sad Denise. I can't remember how I found your blog. Either through Robin or Lacey I think. I just kept clicking until I found you.

    I'm glad to see you are doing well.
