School's Out for the summer


Faith Baptist Church in Quitman hosted a block party to mark the end of the school year in their parking lot Friday evening. Dozens of kids enjoyed a petting zoo, tractor rides, inflatable castle with slide, games, snacks, face painting, balloon animals, and a cake walk.

Pastor Mike Midkiff presented $100 on behalf of the church to each of the Quitman schools – elementary, junior high, and high school – plus the Quitman Police and Fire Departments, totaling $500 donated.

Tours of the church facilities were given, hot dogs and cotton candy were served, and summer was ushered in with style.
