On Saturday, 10/25/08, Valley Spring United Methodist Church had a picnic at the Simpson-Wooten family ranch in Valley Spring. They invited members of the Cherokee UMC and their friends to share in the food and fun. Avery and Maurine Johnson, Clara and Ken Thomson, Sue and Robert Broyles, John and Ann Altizer, and Kay and Bob Savage (plus their granddaughter Maddy) attended from Cherokee.
The site of the picnic was the top of a hill where the Wootens will soon build a home. The scenery was beautiful from the hill, and the weather cooperated nicely. There was a “walk on water” experience that many participated in, as well as excellent conversations and fellowship with old friends and new. Everyone enjoyed the delicious food, including desserts and homemade ice cream. (No one left hungry)
