My daffodils are just beginning to bloom, giving hope that spring is in sight.But if you need something to get you through the rest of February, there are a couple of upcoming events you should know about.The Mount Pleasant High School Bible Club is inviting everyone to a banquet benefitting the Mount Pleasant Bible Teaching Association. This group raises money annually to support Bible teaching at Mount Pleasant High School and relies on grants, donations from individuals, churches and businesses, and fundraisers. The Bible Club Banquet has become a popular, annual .As always, there will be a catered meal served in the high school cafeteria followed by entertainment from students and staff. This year’s performers include Officer Randy Buckwell, the quartet from Cross of Christ Lutheran Church, and local group Willow Creek Bluegrass.New this year is an appearance by the King, Elvis Presley, as The E’ssentials. Teacher Terri Barringer, who advises the Bible Club, said when the opportunity arose to try something new and fun, they seized it.She’s hoping lots of people will want to come enjoy an award-winning, ’70s-era Elvis impersonator. That portion of the program will be held in the school’s auditorium.Tickets for the banquet are $12. That includes your meal and all the entertainment, but they must be purchased by Feb. 18. You can call the high school at 704-436-9321 for information.Also, Barringer said anyone who wants to skip the meal and just see Elvis can purchase a ticket for $8.The second February event is brought to you by the Friends of the Mount Pleasant Library.Last October, I wrote about local author Catherine Ritch, who is researching the earliest settlers of this area for a new series of novels.At 7 p.m. Feb. 26, Ritch will be the featured speaker for the Friends of the Library annual meeting to be held in the Mount Pleasant Middle School auditorium.Ritch is Director of Music and Children/Youth at St. John’s Lutheran Church and a composer, comedian, motivational speaker, musician, teacher and missionary.She has written for children and adults, including a comedy series featuring “Miz Eudora Rumph of Smackass Gap, North Carolina.”Ritch is calling her presentation for the Friends of the Library, “The Stories of Life.” Some will be funny, some sweet, and some sad, just like life. She plans to incorporate many of her varied interests in her talk, which should appeal to a wide audience.The Friends of the Library annual meeting is free, open to the public, and, like the Bible Club banquet, supports a great organization.
