Mark Your Calendars

There will be a yard sale at the Balsam Grove Community Center on Saturday, May 8, from 8 a.m. until noon. We have clothing, formal wear, kitchen and decorative items, linens, furniture, books and many recently donated items. We will also have tomato, pepper and eggplants for sale. This sale helps to support the community center. We ask that you wear face coverings. Thanks for all that everyone does for the community center.

If you have donations for the yard sales, contact an officer of the community club to meet you at the community center to put it in the building. Items get ruined if they are just dropped off at the door, and then we have to pay to have it hauled off. We appreciate your cooperation. Calls may be made to Bernice Powell at 884-6058 or Doris Owen at 885-7870 or any other officer.

God’s Way Food Pantry

Food pantry operates every other Saturday from 10 a.m. until 11:30 a.m. It is drive-through only. If you are sick or unable to come, call to have someone pick up for you. The next food pantry is May 15. Blessings to David, Lydia and staff.

Balsam Grove Playground

Now that it is getting warmer, we are so glad to see that many are enjoying the playground at the community center. Please help to keep it clean and remember, no pets inside the fence. We are so blessed to have such a nice playground. We want everyone to enjoy it.

Sick In The Community

Please pray for all of the sick people in our community that they might get well and be out and about before too long. We also have some homebound elderly that need to be remembered as well.
