Ray:  I didn’t have time to.

Payne:  Did you belong to any social clubs here?

Ray:  I wasn’t a joiner.

Payne:  You weren’t a joiner and you chose a single life, so that must mean that you really do like your independence.  (laughter)

Ray:  Yes.  I really do.

Payne:  But, so, what’s your life like now?

Ray:  Well, mostly now for UMCOR.  The Methodist church relief …

Payne:  Yes.

Ray:  And we’re having to do a lot now.

Payne:  Oh yes, I’m sure.  Do you have refugees here?  Do you have refugees in New Albany?  [Reference to refugees from Hurricane Katrina]

Ray:  Yes.

Payne:  Are you helping take care of them?

Ray:  They had a dinner for them at our church last night.  And they served lunch today for them.  We try to help them.

Payne:  So, are the United Methodist Women associated with that?

Ray:  Yes, the whole church.

26:10   Payne:  How do the churches relate to each other in New Albany?  Do the Methodist and Baptist pretty much go their separate ways or do they …

Ray:  Well, they sort of cooperate … especially in a time like this.  And … we have a good working relationship with the Catholic Church too.  They have a preacher’s alliance that they meet to often.

26:44   Payne:  Now, do African Americans join that or do they have their own alliance?

Ray:  They have their own, I think.
