The Friends of Coffee Break Tours Relay for Life Team in Martin is now taking reservations for its fundraising trip to Tennessee’s Amish Country in southern Middle Tennessee June 2. The Amish farms will be toured by horse and wagon. The bus will leave from downtown Martin that morning. A pickup stop will be made in Huntingdon, if necessary. The price of the trip is $59 and includes the transportation, the farms tour, lunch and a donation to Martin’s Relay for Life. For reservations, call 587-4949.
Bethel Baptist Church, located just off off Hwy. 54, north of Greenfield, will host a Relay for Life gospel singing in honor of Regena Rowlett April 28 at 6:30 p.m. Ms. Rowlett, known by most as “Momma Gena” for her tireless efforts as a Godly daycare provider to many of Greenfield’s toddlers over the years, lost her battle with cancer in January 2011, but continues to affect the community through the children she cared for while she was alive.
The group Second Generation will be the featured singers. Second Generation consists of cousins whose parents made up the Melody Makers Quartet, Jeff Perkins of Greenfield, Wendy Tate of Kenton and Mitch and Wendell Verdell, brothers of Ms. Rowlett, of Gleason and Kathy Perkins Stover of Dresden.
This event will be a night of praising God through good old gospel music.
The public is invited to attend.
A love offering will be taken and all proceeds will go toward Greenfield’s Relay for Life fundraising efforts.
Martin Parks and Recreation is teaming with Cub Scouts Pack 37, Harper’s Wrecker Service, WCMT and Star 95.1 to sponsor “Touch a Truck.” The event is a hands-on — literally — event for all ages to get up close and personal with over 40 vehicles, including a fire truck, tractor, Hummer, dump truck, ambulance, police car, helicopter and much more.
“Touch A Truck” will be located at the Martin Recreation Complex, Hwy. 45 South, on April 28 from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. Admission is free. Stop by and see lots of trucks and special vehicles. For more information, contact Martin Parks and Recreation at 587-6784. A rain date will be scheduled for April 29, 1:30-4:30 p.m.
