Future activities at the Clear Ridge community building include a yard sale on >September 4. The ladies and gentlemen will have pies and sandwiches for sale.

The next festival is scheduled for September 17 beginning at 4 p.m. A pie and soup sale is scheduled for October 29.

Terri Grissinger has been busy picking berries. She started with black then red raspberries, onto blackberries and now blueberries. There is definitely some Fraker blood in those veins. Many quality hours were spent picking berries with my Dad when I was younger. Mark and Cherry Hale have also been busy this summer with berry picking.

Three Springs Fire Co. will be hosting a chicken barbecue on August 16 beginning at 11 a. m.

The yard sale at Immanuel Bible Church was a happening place on Saturday. You can tell we definitely live in the country when the directions for Starr Road confused more than one person's GPS system and sent them to a creek crossing not too far from the yard sale. Thanks to everyone who helped and attended the event.
