Bride-to-be honored with shower


Kennedie Hyde was honored with a bridal shower Saturday in Gatesville at the Dove Nest Estate. Kennedie is the bride elect of Elliott Lanham. The hostesses were Amanda Wolff, Lindsey Pinner, Jill Winkler, Maggie Thayer, Tanya McCoy, Linda Lam, Betsy Spitzer, Codie Warren, Margaret Hopson, Tammie Auten, Kristi Dunn, Susie Hopson, and Rachel Hopson, who wasn’t technically a hostess, but she was so helpful!

The Pecan Grove Baptist Church was flooded by high Coryell Creek Water in the early morning of May 5.  Floors, pews, walls, piano, sound system, new chairs, tables, and a refrigerator were moved and ruined by 4 feet of moving water inside church.  The propane tank broke loose, floating.  Firemen took care of escaping propane fumes.  The metal tabernacle roof was all that was visible at one time.  This church and congregation will overcome this catastrophe.
