Counting their Blessings

Blessing hosts annual day of thanks

 

The town of Blessing hosted their Annual Blessing Day on Sunday, May 5, at the Blessing Community Center.  

BBQ chicken, potatoes, beans and desserts were served to those in attendance.   

“We have much to be thankful for in Blessing beginning with the support of our community,” said Ona Lea Pierce. “The money that is collected today is used for scholarships for the children, based on a point system with points accrued by each child through various volunteer opportunities.”  

According to Pierce, volunteerism is a trait the community wishes to pass on to their young people.
