Article Image Alt Text

Dr. Bill and Mrs. Jackie Gaddis

Some things are passed down from generation to generation: recipes, hunting traditions, career pathways, heirlooms, and tales. One item not on this list, though, has been prized and shared throughout generations in the Gaddis family, and is something you may find in short supply these days: lifelong commitment to serving the community.

Building Goodwill at Rotary

Building Goodwill at Rotary

Haley Kent (Dean of Students at Mount Grace Teen Challenge for Women), Reverend Dick Debusk (program speaker), Jessica Arcement (Director), and Jo Anna Savant (Work Detail Supervisor and Finances).

“What can I do more than just serve myself?” Reverend Dick Debusk posed this question to the Rotary Club of Winnfield at their most recent gathering.

In a world where “self-care” takes center stage, this type of countercultural question can be unsettling. Bro. Debusk reminded Rotarians that Jesus tells His followers they will be placed in one of two categories when the nations are judged: either they are among the recipients of eternal life who gave food to the hungry, drink to the thirsty, clothing to the naked, and care to the sick and imprisoned – or they did not.

Welcoming the Holidays at Open House

Winnfield decked the halls with boughs of JOLLY for Open House this year! Local businesses showed up and showed out with their Christmas décor and holiday spirit. Although the evening started out drizzly, the rain eventually subsided, so families were able to drive around and support our local restaurants, shops, and businesses.

The wintry evening truly set the scene for members of the community to remember what makes small towns like Winnfield so magical. Strangers turned into friends as shoppers and shop owners gathered and laughed as they posed for pictures. The Christmas lights lit up the night as neighbors and families bonded over delicious treats and promising giveaways.
