Thank you all for your love and support of Alva & Jed. The process is underway to plan/create a memorial garden on Alva's property as a peaceful place for her to remember & reflect upon her boys' lives. For those who would like to contribute, monetary donations can be given to help finance this place of respite. Checks can be made out to "Smith Brothers Memorial Garden Fund", c/o CornerStone Bank, 54 South Main Street, Lexington, VA. Please share with others. The thought of this quiet place of reflection & the process of helping to design & plan it are comforting to Alva at this time.

On the first Sunday of each month Oxford Church collects the 4 Cents A Meal Offering. This offering supports two local needs: the Community Table which offers a free-will offering meal every week at the RARA building located next to the hospital, and the local Food Pantry for purchase of food items to stock their shelves. Oxford also accepts donations of food and personal items for the Food Pantry. For August the Food Pantry requests donations of Peanut Butter
