Buyces thankful for tribute luncheon

Myrtle and Elmer Buyce were recently honored by townsfolk for their years of community service at a tribute luncheon, and they'd like to thank everyone for planning and attending the event.

Held at the Thurman Baptist Church, the luncheon drew about 160 people, and it focused on the Buyce's work for the church as well as their good deeds for the community.

They said this week that they deeply appreciated such a nice surprise when so many friends, relatives, and neighbors came out to wish them well. Myrtle had relatives who came from as far as Massachusetts and North Carolina, as well as many from the local area.

Many of those attending were old friends that they'd not seen in years. It was such a lovely day for this happy couple. They thank not only the pastor and his wife, but everyone who brought in food dishes, and helped with the serving and cleanup.
