Native Americans to dance at Hunter#039;s Appreciation Day

What a way to start the season Bulldogs.

If you didn’t get a chance to go to the game Friday night then you just don’t know what a game you missed. I think we have an excellent team again this year. We play Goshen this Friday night at Goshen. I don’t see Goshen having a chance.

Good Luck Bulldogs!

Saturday Native Americans are going to dance at the Hunter’s Appreciation Day in Rutledge.

The gate opens at 10 am and it will be an all day affair.

The Family Drum will be the host drum. Randy Mitchell(White Eagle) will play the Native Flute. David Johnson will sing and of coarse Lamar Holland(Crowdancer) and his band of Indians will dance to the native drum.

There will be vendors set up and we will have a table we will be sharing with Dozier Freewill Baptist Church, Randy and David. Randy and David have CDs of their music and the church is going to sell sweets. The money will go to the church building fund.

Lamar will have his canes and medicine pouches for anyone interested. The Family Drum may bring some of their wares.

Please don’t forget this is the weekend for the Shriner’s peanut boil. My mouth just waters every time I think about those peanuts and the money goes to a good cause. I am sure if you would like to help they wouldn’t turn you away.

Volunteers are greatly appreciated. Please see Jon Folmar for more information.

Bro. Rockey Pearce really wants to expand the church so he has went another step further and started a pie throwing contest.

October 10th is homecoming at the Dozier Freewill Baptist Church and Bro. Rockey, Sister Debbie Pearce, Susan Byrd, Buddy Byrd, Lamar Holland and Sandra Holland are collecting donations to see who can get the most money. The one with the most money gets the pie in the face.

Now come on folks. I know that there has to be someone in this group you would like to see get hit with a pie.

After church Sunday, Oct. 10 is when it will happen.

Any of us will be glad to except any donation, but just remember the one with the most money gets the pie in the face.

Juniors at Brantley School are selling magazines to be able to go to the prom this school year. If you are already subscribing to a magazine you can renew your subscription.

There are also CDs for sell. So if you like to read or listen to good music or listen to music while you read here is your chance to help a student out.

Speaking of music!

Did you see our band at the game?

Those band students never cease to amaze me. They are so talented.

The new addition of the trash can drums is just great. I loved the drum major uniform as well. It was very colorful.

The color guard has beautiful costumes also.

You Go Emerald Wave Marching Band.
