    Thought for the week: Sometimes we can feel lost and uncertain of the future, but no matter where you are right now, just trust that things will get better. Stay strong-you’ve got this.

    Congratulations to Magnolia Bank on receiving 5 star rating. On Good Friday, I went to the Community Good Friday service at the Civic Center. A great program with great fellowship. It was great to see the community and different churches come together to do the program.
