It was a beautiful day!

After a very busy weekend - I have enjoyed Monday!  The weather was great, if a tad breezy, warm enough to stay outside all day!

Several fun things are happening this week - Thursday the Goldston Library has Pre-School story time with Ms. Beth.

As long as we are talking about the library....did you know that the Chatham Community Library now offers "live chat" reference service during libary hours.  Go to the home page at www.chathamnc.org/index.aspx?page126 and look for the square that says "Ask Us Now".

On Saturday, April 9th - Paperbacks Plus  is having Betty Jo Thomas in to read her book (Miguel and Lucky Meet Their Maker) and having a book signing. The reading starts promptly at 10:30. This is a good time for people to purchase my book since it focuses on Palm Sunday.  Paperbacks Plus is located on Raleigh St.  While you are in Siler City take the time to see the galleries, there are many good things to see....

Also Saturday, J S Waters PTA is having a Spring Fling this Saturday, April 9th from 2-6. Come out and enjoy an afternoon of fun, food, games, inflatables, live entertainment and more. Be sure to bring a lawn chair if you want to relax while listening to the music. 

The JAM band will be playing at the Spring Fling and the Goldston United Methodist Praise Band will also be singing. 

I will have more to post tomorrow, I hope that you will share this blog with your friends and let me know of any activities that are happening in Chatham County.

Sunday, March 27

Highlights of the last week - The Chatham County JAM Band - played for the 3rd Friday Art Walk in Siler City and ended up with their picture on the front page of the Chatham News. 

I had an enjoyable lunch with Pat Dawson from Paperbacks Plus (Siler City) and we tried the new Deli in Siler City in the shopping center where Belks and the new Tractor Supply Store is located.  Lunch was very good, Pat enjoyed their Chicken Taco Soup and salad while I had a Ruben Sandwich.  It was a nice change of pace!

The Goldston/Bear Creek Community sent a mission team to Nicaragua and we were pleased to be able to receive an update everyday.  You can find the updates and daily picture on the Goldston United Methodist Church Facebook page. 

Chatham Central High School - PTA had their Chicken Tender Benefit on Friday at the Goldston Fire Department -  The money raised will go towards providing the "extras" that the school will need this year.

On Saturday, Goldston was one of the stops for a piece of one of the towers from 9/11.  This 19' metal piece made its way through 3 different ceremonies - Pittsboro, Goldston and Siler City.  It will hopefully find a permanent home by 9/11/2011 here in Chatham.
