  • Monterey Matters: Town coming together for fair

    A very good friend of mine from Frankfort - Jana Moore - has been asking me for weeks to come up and go to church with her and her family at North Frankfort Baptist Church.
    She had also called another friend of ours Laurie to come join us too.
    Laurie and I finally had made plans to go. This same weekend, Evelyn also called to see if I would come go to church with her at Old Cedar.
    I ended up having Evelyn to join us and we all ended up meeting up with Jana a few weeks ago.
    It was a very nice church and we really enjoyed it.

  • Kay’s Branch News: Surprise party is a tough secret to keep

    It is now 32 degrees on my thermometer this morning. We had frost Sunday morning too. It looks like I can quit popping the allergy pills very soon. I did get the live plants into the garage Saturday evening. I’ve learned when they start predicting low temps for surrounding counties, it’s going to frost on the Branch. Our flowers are long gone before anybody else’s. That’s why I switched to artificial flowers to decorate for fall. They are bright and decorative long after the cold of November sets in.
