Your Home Town Car Rental Company@ By Roberta Patton Rodgers LIFE IS LIKE A VAPOR! Many ministers have used the expression "Life is like a vapor" re- ferring to earthly life. They hope people will accept the God of our Fathers, receive a heavenly home, and see their loved ones again. I realize how fast time is fleeting. In 1990 we are definitely "in the fast lane," as the young people say. I know May 20 is almost here. How much good thought, sugges- tions, and research has gone into the preparation of that special patri- otic dedication to my great-great grandfather. His Revolutionary War marker has been placed beside his old tombstone in the new Lebanon Cemetery. Dedication will be May 20 at 2:30 p.m. Conducting the dedica- tion service will be Paul Lilly of the Sons of the Revolution of Lewis- burg. Mr Lilly has been working hard to get this marker placed. The Fife and Drum Corps of Wil- liamsburg, under the direction of Ha- rold Schoonmaker, will perform. Taps will be played by Barry Morgan of the Ronceverte Baptist Church. Colors will be paraded by the Ron- ceverte National Guard. Following the military portion of the dedication, there will be an "An- cestry Hunt" and "gravestone trac- ing" for everyone. Go through the cemeteries and discover one of your ancestors and trace the wording on the gravestone which is now difficult to read. Perhaps you'll add another important fact to your lineage. Old Lebanon Cemetery will also be on the tour. This tour will be led by Wil- liam T. (Bill) Patton of New Lebanon Church. He had worked in Old Leba- non Cemetery for years.

Bill says "there are probably 200 graves yet in the old cemetery. You may find someone you have been searching for! My ancestor Tristram served in the Continental Guard along side George Washington. They fought that long and hard Revolutionary War for freedom, un- der God, for man. "Time is like a vapor" may have prompted Tristram (a scholar) with words to select this promise in prayer as a touching and painted message to be inscribed on one side of his gravestone. Say i1 over again and listen as tho' it is meant for you personally. (That is the way I felt when I went alone to his grave, just to read.) "Look ye strangers passing by, as you now, so once was I. As I am now, so you must be. Prepare for death and fol- low me!" Mr Lilly will show how to trace the other two sides of Tristram's old stone -- I'm excitedly awaiting any revelation. So far I have asked for volunteers to demonstrate tracings. Art and history classes are invited to come and study gravestone art. Volunteers are invited to spread publicity and hospitality. Tristram Patton's history will be told by Edwin Coffman of Florida. Susan Ryan, a Gap Mills elemen- tary teacher, is volunteering her services and encouraging her his- tory class to attend. All Pickaway and Lebanon Churches will be open. Hostesses will welcome you! May 20, 2:30 p.m., see you! Life is like a vapor. Flowering Lily of the Valley to you!

Viewpoint on WRVA hosted by Jerry Lund is a show that lets the listening audience call in and ex- press their viewpoint on any subject. We have chosen a few excerpts from one of his shows for this col- umn. One of the calls was from a man who wanted to talk about Virginia Beach and the trouble they had last year with the college students invad- ing the beach for their Greek festi- val. He said the city has hired a con- sultant and is spending $300,000 dollars to promote Virginia Beach. He is worried that the same thing will happen again and the regular tourists won't want to come to the beach because of all the negative publicity the festiva created last year. / S~ggesleo ......... 28" 8HP REG.
