Hume News by Karen Irwin

This year at the annual Volleyball “Pink Out” game the Lady Hornets chose Lisa Brooks as the one they would like to honor this year. Lisa, Aunt Lisa or Mrs. Brooks, she has many names, has been an inspiration to all not only at school where she has worked, but in her church, family and community. Lisa has been battling cancer yet continues to give of herself.

She is very thankful to all who were involved and will be an evening she will never forget – The Pink Out Game. She has received many prayers, encouragement and support that have helped her through this journey that she is going through. She appreciates and thanks God for everyone. She feels so blessed.

But we are the ones that are blessed by her faith and strength as she has traveled through this journey that she is on. As we all stand by Lisa!

Miss Weslynn will be welcomed home by a host of family. Congratulations to the Austin family!

The Hume Christian Church held a Trunk or Treat on Sunday evening, October 30th. All the Kids dressed in their costumes and parents alike enjoyed the fun times!

The Annual Hume United Methodist Church Lord’s Acre Day BBQ and Auction is a long standing tradition that has lasted 70 plus years. In years passed there was always a parade downtown with farmers brining in grain and hay to be auctioned off, ladies making delicious pies for dessert and to be auctioned off. Things have changed a little bit though the years.

The tradition of the Methodist Men serving up some delicious BBQ continues this Saturday, November 5 starting at 11:00 a.m., and then the auction starts at 1:00 p.m. all in the church basement. We will once again have Prairie Hay donated by the Bogan family. They have strong roots connected to our church. Their Mother/Grandmother Manetta Horton for years tickled the Ivory, along with their Aunt Lorene McClaughry who played the organ by her side. Ladies who are long gone, but were dedicated to our church playing their beautiful music, for those of us who remember these ladies, they hold a special place in our hearts.

We hope you join us for a fun time of tradition, fun and fellowship this Saturday at the Church.
