Don’t know who had more fun, children or adults. The church held their women’s ministry on Monday, Aug. 12, with a potato bar. Each lady brought something to add to the top – chili, sour cream, onions, cheese, bacon bits, etc.

Hope Christian Church on U.S. 50 in Augusta, is planning a meal on Sunday, Aug. 18, at 4:30 p.m., then having a play at 5:15 – the show “Hee Haw in Hampshire County.” If you missed the one at the fair, now you have a chance too come and their gym and it will be cool.
