Wow, what a week! Graduations, meetings, yard work, doctors, cleaning house; you name it, summer has begun. Rain or not, the show must go on; or at least, that’s the way it was Thursday night at the Brighton graduation. The graduating class had many honor recognitions following the last rain shower; it is an amazing class of students. I’m so glad they continued with the graduation outside, as so many people were there. I don’t think even the entire high school could have housed them all. Driving up to the school, the parking lot looked like a horror movie, as cars were parked in so many different directions (and I arrived 20 minutes early). It was tempting to park at the Brighton bank and walk over. All in all, it was a very inspiring event.
Three Star Fire Department
The annual barbeque was last Saturday night. As well as a delicious meal, many honors were given. State Representative Debra Moody presented Chief Jon Piercy the state’s Act of Heroism, as well as an award for 20 years of service. Each fireman received a certificate of achievement. Chris Alexander was named Firefighter of the Year, Frank Brown was named Fire Officer of the Year and Paul Stalter was recognized with making more than 200 calls. Again, we are so blessed to have such dedicated men and women of the Almyra community. Thanks to all of you!

Worship is at 9 a.m. Rev. Charles Todd is the minister. We welcome all members, visitors and friends. Congratulations to John Neville Seay, grandson of Joyce Byrd, who graduated Thursday evening from Brighton High School. In closing, Let’s not forget our dedicated men and women of the armed forces as Memorial Day approaches on Monday, the 26th of May. This also includes our disabled American veterans and former military personnel.
It’s a crying shame what Washington has done, according to Fox News, with our veterans trying to get medical help across this great nation. Americans must learn to take a stand on all the present circumstances, which we can no longer tolerate, as we watch our country decline. "We The People" have a voice and the freedom to use it!
Have a great week.
