Make Reservations Now
Congratulations to my Alma Mata, Jackson State University they did not win the final game but they played in the final game, the Celebration Bowl in Atlanta. The score was 31 to 10 in favor of South Carolina State. Reservations are being taken now for seats on the buses for next years season. There will be approximately 6 games out of state. To check on seating call B & R Chartering Service and speak with Rose McGowan @ 601-259-6861. Atlanta bus seats were sold out. Hope enough people call, reserve and pay for seats so if another bus is needed they will have time to arrange another bus on the trips. The bus will leave on September 1, 2022 going to Fort Lauderdale (Miami area) and return back on September 5, 2022. This is Labor Day weekend.

Sending prayers and hope to a special relative that is very young, about two going on three. Her mother had stayed home worked and taken care of her preemie child. She thought she had cared for her enough that she was out of Covid-19 clutches. She put her in a day care and the first week she is diagnosed with Covid-19. She is some better, fever is dropping. Parents the best you can do sometimes is not good enough. Just strive to do your best. Even when you are doing your best, God is still in control.
