Spring Bike Ride

WHAT DO DRAGON boat races and bike rides have
in common? They both occurred on May 6, 2017 at Lake
Olmstead near the Augusta Canal in Georgia. The Outdoor
Adventure Club had planned the annual spring bike ride
down the canal path months in advance. Their normal stop
for lunch is at Lake Olmstead. To their great delight, the
date coincided with the Goodwill Industries Dragon Races
Festival. So in addition to enjoying a 14 mile bike ride in
perfect weather, the group also got to witness dragon boat
races and sample the Asian food offered at the festival. A
great time was had by all.•

Moonlight Kayak

ON TUESDAY, MAY 8, 25 people met at the boat ramp
on GA 220 near Soap Creek for a moonlight kayak paddle.
This was the first of three moonlight kayak paddles the
Outdoor Adventure Club has scheduled for this summer.

The weather was perfect, and everyone was ready to
have a good time on the lake. About an hour into the
paddle, the water became as smooth as glass. All the kayaks
heading into the setting sun was an amazing sight to see.
We gathered together in a perfect spot to enjoy a gorgeous
sunset followed by a beautiful full moon. Everyone agreed
that it doesn’t get much better than what we experienced on

cup on another hole that required the golfers to putt through it to finish and a
hole that demanded the golfers use a hockey stick as a putter. The golfers also
had chances for big prizes, including a new car from Gary Russ Chevrolet in
Greenwood and a new Club Car golf cart provided by TSA of Augusta. A hole-
in-one was recorded by Todd Torchia of Augusta, and he won a watch from
H.H. Turner Jewelers.
The winning teams were:

Bet Dombrowski, Rich’s widow and also an active Lion, formed a team with
her daughter Betsy Fiske and family members Marie & Jeff Reed who came
from Atlanta. Bet was honored recently for her work on the Lions’ Fundraising
project of selling knit blankets which depicted McCormick County landmarks.
The funds raised by the Golf Tournament will support the Lions’ Sight and
Hearing programs in McCormick, provide scholarships at the local high school
and help many other worthy local projects and programs.
The Lions are the largest service organization in the world. Next year will be
the 100th anniversary of Lionism and the 90th year of the McCormick Lions
Club. McCormick Lions hold their general meetings once a month at Hickory
Knob and are always accepting new members, men and women, into the club.

Pets of the Month


FUN. THAT’S HOW my friends describe me. I liven up any party. My name is Bert and I’m a hound dog
through and through. And yes, I even sound like a hound dog. I enjoy being loved on and given the
chance, I’ll try to get up in your lap a little bit. That’s not easy to do at 65 pounds but if you love me, you’ll
understand my need to show love without any of that licking. And I’m smart. I can catch a treat in midair.
I also enjoy being outside so I need some room to run and a good fence to keep me home. Not a chain
link fence because I’m smart, like I said. As far as other dogs, I’m curious and I like to meet them and I’m
fine being around them. Did I tell you I’m 3 years old? That means I’m full grown so no surprises. What
you see is what you get. If I sound like a good match for you, call up the folks at the HSMC and tell them
you are ready to add some fun to your life.


DON’T FALL FOR that hogwash – black cats are beautiful, exotic creatures and will surely bring you
good luck. I know because I am one. I’m rather handsome with my shiny coat and white star on my
chest. They named me Bob because they had to dock my tail due to a trauma so now I have a cute
“bobtail” of just an inch. The whole incident makes me a little cautious but I love being petted. When
I’m in the mood, I will gladly flop over on my side for more petting. I’m that type of cat. I’ll let you know
when I’m ready for one on one attention. Don’t get me wrong, I’m friendly and will sit next to you. I’d
just prefer if you didn’t pick me up. Other cats for me are no problem. I live with them now and enjoy
running around in play. I’m almost a year old and ready for a safe and loving home.

Please leave a message at 864-391-2349 or email us at if you are interested in learning more about our available dogs and cats.

Recently I found a gem of a fellow in Denny Lemaster. (He lives on the
Pastor Jim Kinsler Georgia side of the lake, but it is close enough to count.) You might not
864-391-3000 recognize his name, but the first time I was introduced to him, I knew who he was immediately. I lived in Atlanta in 1966 when the Braves moved from
Milwaukee. Denny was a pitcher for the Braves. As a matter of fact I have a
“Building relationships with God and neighbors” game program from my eleventh birthday in 1966 when my father took me to
the Braves game. Denny’s picture is in the program and he autographed it for
Sun 11 am me a few years ago. After he signed the program he invited me to come back
The Rev. Robert Sayer, pastor and visit.
Well, it took me a while but the other day I stopped by Denny’s and struck
3:30 - 4:30 gold! We sat and talked for a couple of hours. He told me stories about Phil
Niekro, Eddie Matthews, Joe Torre, Hank Aaron, Warren Spahn, Roberto
Clemente, Greg Maddox, and Joe DiMaggio (all Hall of Famers). The story
I treasured the most was the story about how he started playing baseball. He
was a poor kid living in a rural setting on a dairy farm in California. His family
didn’t have enough money to buy a baseball glove, so he was watching the other
boys play. A man came up and told him to join in the game. Denny explained
his circumstance, so the man went home and brought him a glove to use. Even
though Denny was left handed he learned to use the right handed glove, he
learned he had a talent for the game, and he learned to love baseball. From that
unlikely beginning Denny became a major league pitcher.
Denny’s experience reminded me of another young boy from the pages of the
Bible who used his humble rural beginnings in a memorable way. In 1 Samuel
17 we read about the young shepherd David as he goes up against the giant
Goliath. David convinces King Saul he is capable of the challenge by saying,
“Your servant has been keeping his father’s sheep. When a lion or a bear came
and carried off a sheep from the flock, I went after it, struck it, and rescued the
sheep from its mouth.” So David uses his experience as a shepherd and his skill
with a sling to slay the enemy of Israel, the Philistine Goliath.
I would like to ask you to reflect upon your unusual and unlikely encounters
in life. Answer this simple question, “How has your life experience prepared
you to be used by God?” Now keep your eyes open because God values your
experience and will use it to help the Kingdom of God come in our midst.•
