This Saturday, Nov., 11th, Veterans everywhere will be thanked and remembered by all for their service and sacrifice made to the United States of America.

Littlefield 4-H seeks support

In 2012, the Littlefield 4-H Club took over the task of honoring the veterans in the new cemetery by placing flags on those almost 800 graves for each memorial holiday. For 5 years they have continued this task, desiring to recognize and honor those in the community who have served in our military.

This year, the club is expanding their efforts. With few records of those buried in the old cemetery, the 4-H members and leaders walked grave by grave to identify the veterans, based on the headstone markings. They have placed flag holders at those graves so that these men and women can be honored.

The club members need community help in two ways. One, we would love to make sure that your loved ones are honored. Not all graves are marked with their service. If you have a loved one buried in the old cemetery that is a veteran, please email their name and the approximate location of the grave so that the club can make sure your loved one is honored for their service.

A building for God

FBC renovations almost complete 

 

By JOE GONZALES

For the past nine weeks, there’s been major work going on inside of the First Baptist Church of Littlefield.

Pastor Tanner Wilson will tell you all the work done inside of the church was much needed, and he’s excited about it, but what he’s more excited about is – spreading the Word of God and seeing what the work can do to those who attend their church.

“Central to our church is Jesus, and presenting his Word and worshiping his name,” said Wilson. “We just want to do that the best way we can, and at the same time, we wanted the church be more beneficial to everyone.”

First Baptist Church was built in 1952, and Pastor Wilson said there had been no major changes since then.
