Lawrence Community Club

MERIDIAN —     Chris Hollingsworth and Joey Gressett of the Newton County Sheriff’s Department were guest speakers at the March meeting of the Lawrence Community Club.

    Hollingsworth and Gressett discussed a current scam involving several men going house-to-house offering to asphalt driveways. Club members were advised to be careful and to call the sheriff’s office if approached by anyone.

    Hollingsworth also displayed articles he had made from leather. They included rifle holders, belt holders for guns, ladies purses and a bag large enough to be used as a diaper bag.

    The March 6, 2014, meeting opened with a devotional reading from I Corinthias 4:5 presented by Jean Burton.

    Burton also read “A Carolina Story,” which is about a man who whittled beautiful little dogs out of wood. A woman stopped by his porch and admired his talent. When she asked his secret, he answered, “I take a block of wood and whittle everything away that doesn’t look like a dog.” 

    Burton asked, "What would it look like if we took a block of 24 hours and whittled away everything that did not look like love? What a beautiful day we could create."

     Jerry and Lucille Simmons served as host of the pot luck meal. Eight families were present.

    Lawrence Community Club meets the first Thursday of the month at 6 p.m. Attendance is open to local residents; a pot luck supper each month.
