It is time to head down to Green Valley Park. The 17th annual Beeline Cruise-In Charity Car Show is this weekend. Watch Main Street, the Beeline, Hwy. 260 and Tyler Parkway for the annual Cruise-In parade around town starting at 4 p.m., Friday, April 23, and then get down to the park Saturday, April 24 for the show and lots of fun.

Dr. C.M. Curtis, noted writer, radio personality and expert in alternative medicine and weight control, will give a free class on natural weight control at 11 a.m., Wednesday, April 21 at the Payson Athletic Club, 400 E. Highway 260.

Curtis will explain the reasons why so often the weight goes on easily but comes off only with great sacrifice and difficulty. He will also explain the reasons why so many weight loss programs do not render permanent results.

Curtis teaches about four important criteria for any weight loss system: it must work; it must be healthy; it must be sustainable; it must be permanent.

Beth Moore presentation

America’s most renowned and esteemed Bible teacher, Beth Moore, will help women conquer fear and doubt and discover the secret to liberating confidence and security in a nationwide simulcast event.

Mountain Bible Church Women’s Ministry will present the Beth Moore program “So Long Insecurity,” live via satellite from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., Saturday, April 24 on the Church Communication Network (CCN).

Pre-registration is required, as seating is limited. Tickets are $25, which includes the cost of a continental breakfast and lunch. They may be purchased at the church office, 302 E.

Book signing

Author Katy Rovetto will be signing copies of her book, a memoir, “Flying High: Soaring Above the Tragedies of Life,” from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Saturday, April 24 at Oasis Christian Books, 512 S. Beeline Highway.

For Rovetto, life was full of turbulence with extraordinary highs and tragic lows. She had no desire for her destiny to reach any farther than the horizon of the San Juan Islands in Puget Sound. Then Dave Rahm, The Flying Professor, courageously and compassionately stepped into her world. When he was invited to Jordan to train the aerobatic flying team, the Royal Jordanian Falcons, the author, along with her young son, joined him. When the unthinkable happened, Rovetto’s renewed strength was tested, but she finds that God, the ultimate pilot, will always guide her through.
