Many of you have asked for details about Lenora Wheaton’s memorial service. Her son Ed Wheaton shares with us, “The memorial service for Mom, and Dad as well, will be at noon on Saturday, Oct. 17, at the Baptist Church. All are invited to attend and, at the time of sharing, are welcome to tell a story or read a scripture – whatever God leads you to do. We’re still in the planning stages on some aspects, like food, but as with all events, things will come together. Bring an instrument and a song or a story and let’s celebrate together the legacy of John and Lenora Wheaton.”

Tiffany Farley has an offer to Swans Islanders that you will not want to miss: “I’ve been receiving a few messages over the past month or so asking if I would be on the island for smaller portrait sessions for the holiday season. I am looking at my calendar this week and planning my next trip up and would love to offer smaller family portrait sessions just for the island this year. If you’re interested in learning more, message me at [email protected]”
