The 2017 Coffee and Conversation series at the Arcanum Wayne Trail Historical Society will continue on July 8 at 10 a.m. Members of the AWTHS are looking for cheerleaders and advisors from squads of different years from the Southern Darke County Schools to join them at the historical society house to share their experiences and memories. No special invitation is needed and everyone is welcome. This will be a casual dialogue and anyone in attendance is encouraged to share their memories. If you served your high school as a cheerleader why not contact your squad members and plan to join in on what promises to be a fun morning. All you need is your school spirit and stories. This is the fourth season for Coffee and Conversation at AWTHS and it has been well-attended and enjoyed by all with a great time reminiscing. If you have questions, please contact Barb Deis at 662-0119 for more information. If you cannot attend, but would like to share your experiences and memories, you can email them to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Vacation Bible School at Immanuel Baptist Church will be next week June 26-30 from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. at 500 West South Street, Arcanum. Children aged 3 years through 6th grade are invited to come and be “Submerged – Finding Truth Below the Surface”. Prepare to embark on an adventure like no other, scouring the mysterious fathoms of the deep sea. Thrilling discoveries await just beyond the portholes of your submarine. Things look very different once you get below the surface – and that’s true for life above the surface, too. As kids submerge themselves in God’s Word, they will discover that Jesus saw people differently. He didn’t just see what’s on the outside; He saw who people were on the inside. The theme is based on the scripture Psalms 139:23-24.
