Chime Choir

Our church recently bought a set of Choir Chimes from another church in our area.  We had our first Chime Choir practice on Sunday.

Chris H. does a great job leading the choir.

Choir Chimes are so much fun!

I like that the choir brings together people of all ages and musical abilities.

Once they have had a few more weeks to practice, I'll try to post some videos of the choir.

Two Mile Fun-Run

On Saturday some of us and some friends ran a 2-mile fun-run as part of a Family Fitness Day at the local park.  Here is our little group before the run.

MCYR's Pigskin Party

On Saturday the McNairy County Young Republicans hosted a watch party during the Tennessee-Oregon football game to raise funds for next year's local candidates.

Decorating before the event

Preparing the food

Melissa made a UT cake

The party was held at the Crazy K Ranch in Michie.  I liked the backdrop of hills and cattle behind the event center.

Guests begin to arrive...

...and visit with one another.


Ross grilled the hamburgers and hot dogs.


Ross Mitchell, the MCYR Chairman welcomes everyone...

...and the game is on!

It was a beautiful day, so some people preferred to watch the game from the porch.

Young TN fans

Several speakers addressed the crowd during half-time, including our State Senator, Dolores Gresham...

...and State Representative Barrett Rich.

Thanks to the MCYRs, everyone enjoyed a good time of food and fellowship.
