Barbour baseball signups underway

Hello from Barbour County! I sure have been enjoying when the temperatures are up into the 50’s and 60’s, but I’m afraid that it won’t last. That’s OK. Spring will be here before we know it.

Barbour County Little League Baseball signups are taking place every Saturday in February at the Belington Civic Center from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. There is no cost for registration, and is for children ages 4-16.

I would like to wish a very happy birthday to Pearl Lipscomb, who will be 98 years young on Feb. 13.

This is an achievement not made by many, and it’s good to see her blessed with a long life. I can’t help but think that she must have honored her parents when she was young. Ephesians 6:2-3

The Barbour County cancer support group will have their monthly meeting on Feb. 15 at 11 a.m. at the Medallion Restaurant in Philippi. This is open to all cancer survivors, caregivers and family members. For more information, call Deanna at (304) 457-2684.

Belington city elections will take place on March 5. This is the first year that I have lived in the city limits and will be able to vote. Come out and make your voice heard.

Looking ahead to March 8, there will be a painting class fund raiser at the Garden Market in Philippi at 6 p.m. The cost will be $40 and this is to raise money to help send Bibles to Africa.

Barbour County Winter Fair will take place March 8 and 9 at the Belington Fire Department. Craft tables are $15 per space and can be reserved by calling (304) 669-6833.

Remember that February is Heart Month. Heart disease is the leading cause of death for men and women in the United States. Take care of your heart. It’s a pretty important part of your life!

If you have any Barbour County news that you would like to see in The Inter-Mountain, give me a call at (304) 614-7782.

Until next time: “No matter how long the winter, spring is sure to follow.”
