On Thursday, Sept. 9, Jimmy and Jacob Shirley and Hunter McQuary traveled to Starkville to attend the MSU vs. Auburn football game.  Ashley Russell also attended.  They were some mighty disappointed dawg fans since State wasn’t able to pull out a victory.


The annual Garrison reunion was held Saturday, Sept. 11, at Mildred Pitner’s home.  About 40 family members gathered for lunch.  Out of town guests attending were John and Joyce Garrison from Collierville, Tenn.; Corey, Priscilla, and Reagen Howell from Brandon, Miss.; Michael and Drew Garrison from Walls, Miss.; and Mark, Donna, and Justin Pitner from Booneville, Miss. Mildred has been hosting this reunion for about 20 years.

Pud Garrison has been under the weather and has had to make several trips to the doctor. The family reports that she is better now.  She was able to make it to the Garrison reunion.

Saturday was a busy day for West Union children.  The day started off at East Union with the cross country team competing.  Savannah Shirley came in 5th and Mallory Newby came in 7th.  The girls only had four competing so they needed one more runner to compete as a team.  The other members running in the girls’ race was Allie Newby and Destiny Windham.  West Union boys came in third.

At the New Albany Sportsplex, the boys fall ball league played several games of baseball, and the Union County Slow Pitch softball games began at noon.  The West Union team played very well.  They had a shot at the championship, but were unable to cash it in.  Each girls’ team in the county played four games each.  There were some mighty tired girls at the end of the day!  Macedonia folks made up a large portion of the fan section.

Sunday, Sept. 12, Macedonia Church honored Magan Scott with a bridal tea.  The fellowship hall was decorated in fall colors with arrangements of beautiful sunflowers throughout the room.  Kay Page’s fruit arrangement was admired bya ll.  Magan is the bride elect of Jonathan Williams.  She received many beautiful gifts.  Magan and Jonathan will be married on Oct. 9.

Each Sunday the members at Macedonia Baptist Church delight to see the new developments in the new sanctuary.  Concrete has been poured and the plumbing done.  Next work will begin on the walls.

The Union County Baptists left on a mission trip to Star, Miss. on Sunday, Sept. 12.  Harold Grisham and Patrick Grisham attended from Macedonia.  They intend to work on Children’s Village buildings.

The West Union elementary beauty revue will be Thursday, Sept. 16, and the high school beauty revue will be Friday, Sept. 17.  Both pageants will begin at 6 pm.
