From Midge Beal's Ford Coupe, to Avery Carrington's go cart, the Memorial Day parade in Deerfield was on the move. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect day! No rain and 70 degrees. The parade stepped off from the Deerfield Fire Station, who had its new rescue boat in the parade.
The Southeast High School marching band led the way. A lot of Deerfield residents lined the streets, waving and picking up candy thrown by various groups. Once we reached the cemetery, the service began. This is always a great reminder of why we celebrate Memorial Day. The lives of those men and women who gave it all should not be forgotten.
Over the Memorial Day weekend, the Deerfield bikers (Darryl and Jessy Cottrell and Neal and Kim Marsh) went on another one of their adventures. This one took them to parts of Virginia, Maryland and West Virginia.
They drove part of the skyline drive in the Shenandoah National Forest. (That is a view to behold any time of year!) They stayed in Harpers Ferry and visited the battleground at Antietam. The whole trip enabled them to see "miles and miles of God's blessings." (Not sure why Darryl looks so angry, but he must have wanted lunch instead of a photo op!)
Mark your calendar for the first VBS of the season. The Deerfield Friends Church will have Barnyard Roundup, June 19 through 23. "Jesus gathers us together" works with Psalm 23 to bring this farm themed VBS to our neighborhood.
Supper will be served at 5:30 p.m. nightly for the children with VBS immediately following. The evening will end each night at 8:30 p.m. This is for children age 3 through the fifth grade. Bring the kids for a great time of music, crafts, Bible lessons, games and food!

Best wishes to Joe and Erin Suttle and their family (Gavin, Liam and Anora) who recently received their long awaited Visas to go to Brazil.
They will be missionaries with Ethnos 360, formerly New Tribes Missions and will live on the Amazon River. Erin was a graduate of Southeast High School and the daughter of Dave and Cheryl Wood.
She and Joe have been preparing for this for several years now.
Have a safe and productive summer. I am trying to be patient with my garden.
Usually it is well on its way by now, but with the rain it is better that it wasn't already planted. I did stick a tomato plant in a pot on the back deck. Love that garden fresh tomato!
