Old Glory News

Old Glory News

It finally got cold to seem like winter time, but it did not last long enough. Going to be warm again.

The farmers are killing the leaves from the cotton and some of the fields sure are pretty and white. May make a good cotton crop after all. Pray that they can get it all in before something happens to it.

Wow, the people that came to the great Sausage Supper enjoyed a beautiful evening, great food and good dancing. I was told that about four hundred folks came to enjoy the evening. Old Glory is still on the map.

The community was deeply saddened by the passing of one of Old Glory's great men. Jack Jones, 90, grew up in this community and graduated from OGHS. He continued to live here and raised his family here with his wife, the late Euna Dell Jones. Their children all were very active in all school functions and were great supporters of the Community.
