thoughts while shavingIf you enjoy hot weather … You are in for a treat … Maybe I should say, the celebration continues … Yesterday’s high temp, locally, was 91 degrees … and we can expect more of the same for the next several days…

Today’s forecast … Sunny with a high near 89 … Tonight, mostly clear with a low in the mid 60s … (65 degrees) … Juneteenth (Wednesday), mostly sunny with a high near 90 … Thursday, sunny with a high near 91 … Thursday, sunny … high temp 91 … Friday, a chance of showers after 2 p.m. (20% chance) … high temp near 91 … Saturday, mostly sunny with a high near 96 … Sunday, hot, 97 degrees … Monday, a chance of showers and thunderstorms … High 97 … 50% chance of rain.

For the record … Thursday, June 20th is the 1st day of summer … also the date for the annual Bladen We Care Golf Tournament fundraiser at River Landing, Wallace, NC. Hopefully, the best ever … all for a good cause…

Now, where do I begin? (This may be the most successful fundraiser ever in this area) … The event has been sold out for several weeks … Proceeds go to worthy local projects … including, assistance for local folks experiencing unusual healthcare issues … (the original purpose of the event) … Added over the years, scholarships for Bladen residents … Nursing scholarships at Bladen Community College and UNC Pembroke … Several area based companies have “stepped up” with large donations, in addition to the area golfers … On behalf of all involved … Thanks To All For Your Assistance … Hope to see you Thursday … at River Landing near Wallace…

The effort speaks volumes about the organizers & supporters, all volunteers … Just the facts … A group of locals make up the Board of Directors … “NO ONE IS PAID! A THANK YOU” is all…

What is Juneteenth? It is a new federal holiday to commemorate the ending of slavery in the United States … Google for more info…
