Mrs. Cheatham and Jerry Darnell represented the unit at Annual Day in Tiptonville recently, it was noted. They accepted many awards and certificates of recognition on behalf of the unit.
Mrs. Cheatham read a list of suggestions for helping the unit accomplish an even higher ranking in the district and she presented a thank you note from Community Developmental Services for contributions from the unit during a difficult period.
