  • Church yard sale

    The Gospel Barn Church, 7351 S.E. 196th Ave., Morriston, (Small Farms Road) is having a large church yard sale on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Oct. 2-3-4.

    Morriston benefit

    Willard's Restaurant and Lounge in Morriston presents "Howl'n at the Moon" party on Oct. 3, 4 and 5 for the benefit of the Morriston Volunteer Fire Dept.

    There will be live music from Thicker Than Water, Local Traffic and Willie and the Po Boys. There will be a bake sale and yard sale hosted by Nature Coast Abate, and a Friday night costume contest.

  • One of the things I'll miss in Georgia is our beautiful springs. In September I met with friends at Rainbow Springs. We go there frequently during the summer, always on a week day.

    For a dollar, visitors can swim, picnic, stroll the scenic paths or just relax for the whole day.

    It's the best bargain in town. The swimming area is a roped off section of the Rainbow River Springs headwater. The water is clear turquoise blue with white sand on the bottom. The temperature of the water stays the same in all seasons, a refreshing 72 degrees or so.

  • As Williston Woman's Club co-president Bunny Sandlin outlines the club's history, the movie "It's A Wonderful Life" comes to mind. Remember the part when the angel reveals to George Bailey what a significant contribution he has made to the community in which he lives?

  • First Baptist Church of Williston will celebrate 150 years with Homecoming Weekend Oct. 10-12.
