PAGE 10-A HOGANSVIIJ HOME NEWS - THURSDAY, JULY 31, 2003 Show, Share Laughter, Right Here Let's share a little laugh- ter this week. That always makes us feel better: Caught for Speeding: The cop hot out of his car and the kid, that was stopped for speeding, rolled down his window. "I've been waiting for you all day," the cop said. The kid replied, ".Yeah, well I got here as fast as I could, sir." When the cop finally stopped laughing, he sent the kid on his way without a tick- et. Stuck Under a Bridge: A truck driver was driv- ing along on the freeway. A sign comes up that reads "low bridge ahead". Before he knows it the bridge is right ahead of him and he gets stuck under the bridge. Cars are backed up for miles. Finally, a police car comes up. The cop gets out of his car and walks around to the truck driver, puts his hands on his hips and says, "Got stuck,huh?" The driver says, "No, I was delivering this bridge and ran out of gas." o Late: The man was in no shape to drive, so he wisely left his car parked and walked home. As he was walking unsteadi- ly along, he was sopped by a policeman. "What are you doing out here at 2:00 a.m.?" asked the officer. "I'm going to a lecture." the man said. "And who is going to give the lecture at this hour?" the cop asked. "My wife," said the man. Let's Go for Goofy: A lady was picking through the frozen turkeys at the grocery store, but couldn't find one big enough for her family. She asked a stock boy, "Do these turkeys get any bigger?" The stock boy replied, "No ma'am, they're dead." Mistaken Identity When the years creep up on us we start to get the old cobwebs in our brains. One old gentleman shuffled up to another old gentleman in the Post Office, looked puzzling- ly at him for a minute, and said, I was wondering...was it YOU or YOUR BROTHER that died last week??!" An oldfrndpassed this one on to me: My wife and I have the secret to making a marriage last: Two times a week we go to a nice restaurant, have a little wine, some good food, and companionship. She goes on Tuesdays, I go on Fridays. I take my wife every- where, but she keeps finding her way back. *I asked my wife where she wanted to go for our anniversary. She said, "Somewhere I haven't been in a long time!" So I suggest- ed the kitchen. *When we go to the mall, we always hold hands. If I let go, she shops. Miss Kailea Chapman wants to say congratulations and I love you to her mommy, Bridgette Chapman, on com- pleting her 1st semester at Dekalb Technical College.

This was the sixth in a series of community singings that'are sponsored by the church musi- cians at Evans Chapel. Each one seems to get better than the one before and the attendance is larg- er each time. The crowd began to gather at the 170 year old church. Soon the church yard was filled with vehi- cles which consumed all available parking spaces. These vehicles were parked in much the same manner the horse and buggy and even the two horse farm wagon filled the three and one half acres that was deeded the church. The congregation lifted up their voices to praise God in song. One could not help but think of the early pioneers who built the first meeting house at this loca- tion in 1828. History tells us the foundation Evans Chapel rests on today are the 12" X 12" hand hewed sills cut and dragged to the spot. No doubt the sills that form the foundation for Evans Chapel could tell an interesting story if they could talk. I seriously doubt the music was ever as loud as last Saturday night. Indeed it was thrilling and the full house seemed to enjoy every minute. After singing for an hour and a half, the congregation adjourned to the church fellow- ship hall for a covered dish sup- per. After an enjoyable meal, most of the crowd assembled back in the church for more congrega- tional singing and special group songs. Saturday was a great day in the long, storied history of Evans Chapel. TALENTED- This excellent string band accompanied the community gospei singing that filled the Evans Chapel with .good gospel music last Saturday evening are as follows: (L-R) Michelle Fuller, Sue Joe Hannah, and Jason Gordy.

LaGrange College Fund-Raising Challenge Adds LaGrange College successfully fulfilled a fund-raising chlenge and in turn was rewarded with a $650,000 grant from an unnamed Atlanta foun- dation. The grant capped off a $6.4 mil- lion modernization effort and was awarded only after the college had raised an accompanying sum. "In order to receive the grant, we were challenged to raise $680,824 by July 28," said David Rowe, vice.pres- ident for advancement. "I'm pleased to say that our friends, alumni and supporters responded well to the challenge, and by April we had exceeded the amount necessary to receive the grant." The total of funds received will be used to complete the financing of a major campus modernization proj- ect that started in 2000.
