Reflections of Sandy Creek

Come join us on Tuesday, May 21, 2024, at 10:30am as author, Joseph Lovell, discusses his second book entitled Reflections of Sandy Creek. "In Reflections of Sandy Creek, I share more of my stories about life. The simplicity of farm life during the 1950's and 60's are explored in this book, but also the struggles that accompany all of our journeys. There is something to be learned from reading these stories, something about love of family, about faith and integrity. Something about seeing the Father's hand in all we do and realizing it was He that carried us through." This program is free and open to the public. It will be held in the Susan L. Adkins Memorial Meeting Room.
