Everett Association

The Everett Baptist Association was in annual session at Spearsville Baptist Church last Friday and Saturday. After the house was called to order, the organization was perfected by electing Rev. Clete Smith, moderator, and moderator and Mr. W. W. Rockett, clerk. The next meeting will be held with Marion church.

After general routine business all necessary committees were appointed and the work of the association was attended to in the usual manner and everything and everybody was working in fine shape for the benefit of the entire organization.

This meeting of the association was considered one of the most interesting meeting held in several years and a large number of delegates and visitors were in attendance. The delegates were high in their praise of the way in which they were entertained by the people of Spearsville and the visitors were more than glad to have the opportunity to be with the folks at this particular time.

Dinner was served on the ground each day and the ladies of Spearsville community proved their ability at preparing good things to eat. After the large crown had eaten to their satisfaction it was almost impossible to tell that the supply had been bothered.

To say the least, the people of Spearsville community are royal entertainers and know just how to treat visitors and make them feel at home.
