Saturday

Our First Ladies' Salad Supper

 Many of our church ladies gathered at Martha Barlow's home on Monday night for a pot-luck salad supper. Look at those smiling faces! We had a fabulous time of friendship, not to mention the excellent spread of food:
 Purely as a record of the dishes we'll enjoy at these salad pot-lucks, here are photos of the various dishes everyone brought:
Linda's pasta salad

Edna's Caesar salad

Mary Kathryn's chicken salad

Nadine's carrot/cabbage salad

Edrae's three-bean salad

Joyce's Amish broccoli salad

Martha's mixed green/olive salad

And the star of the evening, Sally's strawberry/pretzel salad
We had so much fun! The ladies wanted to plan our next salad supper then and there. We will meet at Sally's house next time, probably in mid-summer. Thanks ladies, for the fun and joy that shines out of you when we get together!

2nd Annual Church Picnic on the Farm

Today our church's congregation gathered at the pastor's farm for our May picnic fellowship supper. Pastor Adam set up a grill area, a tent to cover the serving tables, and some tables and chairs for everyone to relax and eat.
 Although some folks are out of town traveling, we had a good turn-out and delicious food: hotdogs, ribs, baked beans, salads, baked and fried chicken, and cookies for dessert.
 Quite a few guests took a little tour of the pasture, the garden, and the greenhouse, and a few ladies toured the pastor's home.
 Around 3:00 the weather was sunny, very warm and still, and the flies were annoying.

 By 5:00 the skies had darkened, the air was cooler, and a storm approached. By 6:00 we had all eaten, the wind was gusty, the large pecan trees were blowing, and drops began to fall.
And just like last year's picnic, in minutes everyone waved their good-byes, dashed to their cars, and headed home before the storm hit! Hopefully next year, we will find a rain-free day for our church picnic on the farm! Thanks to all who came; it was a delightful time.

Cricket's 100th Birthday Party!

 Mrs. Cricket has been a member of Pamlico Presbyterian Church since its very beginning. She's been so instrumental in supporting the church, working hard for the church, and faithfully attending the church. We wish her a very happy birthday this month, and wanted to throw her a big party!
 

We had lots of balloons, flowers, a big sheet cake (coconut, of course, her favorite!), banners -- now, to see who will come!

LOTS of people came to wish Cricket a happy birthday!
 Our fellowship hall was full to bursting, and three tables were full of casseroles and other delicious dishes.

 We are so happy to have such a wonderful woman in our church.
Many blessings on you in the years ahead, Mrs. Cricket! You are certainly a blessing to us.

No Services on Jan. 8th

Pamlico Presbyterian Church has cancelled services on Sunday, Jan. 8 due to winter weather conditions.

Please note that our fellowship supper, scheduled for Saturday, Jan. 14, is still on the calendar, and is a special event because we will celebrate Cricket Draughon's 100th birthday as well! Please come celebrate with us, bring a side wish to share with everyone, and wish Mrs. Cricket a very happy century of life!
