Everything is really pretty and green following the rain on Easter weekend and last Thursday and Friday. I heard they had good rains out at Elm Grove. We have had about two inches all together here in Richland.
Some of the prettiest bluebonnets are along FM 765 but they are not as plentiful as they have been in recent years. Surely the late freezes are all over, by now.
Our newsletter got “lost in the shuffle” last week. I want to thank the ones who called and inquired about the absence of the column. Hopefully it will be printed this week listing all of the Easter visitors.
Marilyn and Michael Suber and I drove over to Brady Saturday morning to watch Georgia Tucker play soccer. We enjoy watching the kids games. Little League season is getting underway so we will be going to see some of Jaxon and Jesse’s games, as well.
Marilyn and I attended the community meeting Saturday night at Elm Grove. Attendance was low with only nine present. The hostesses for the evening were not even there! Maybe if they had seen it in the paper, they would have remembered we were to plan the homecoming picnic.
President Bobby Deeds had it well in hand, though. He handed out lists of the working committees. The men will gather to clean up the grounds on Saturday, May 9th at 9:00 A.M. The ladies will meet to clean the building on Thursday, May 14th at 5:00 P.M. We would surely appreciate anyone who can help to show up on these days. The working committees will be published at a later date.
There will be a ranch rodeo at the Elm Grove arena on Saturday, May 2nd, beginning at 6:00 P.M. These ranch rodeos are a lot of fun to watch. Come and join us.
There will be a business meeting at the Holt Cemetery Saturday, April 25th at 9:30 A.M. Those interested in the upkeep of the cemetery should attend. Remember, it takes money and interest to maintain these country cemeteries.
There were six members present at the Busy Bee quilters meeting last Tuesday. They were Irene Hammett, Marilyn Miller, Catalina Luna, Carol Orr, Grace Hardman and Fay Lusty. I visited for a while as they worked on a quilt for Irene Hammett. Grace Hardman will bring one for the May 12th meeting.
Andy Cummings and Carl Morris were 1st place winners at the 42 tournament.
Curtis Lee gave us a good report on Wilma at the community meeting. She has been well enough to attend church several times and has “graduated” from her walker to a cane. She had planned to attend the community meeting but was paid a visit by a stomach bug on Saturday. The best news of all is that she does not have to return to Dallas for any more treatments. It has been a long, hard road for Wilma and we continue to send her and her family our very best wishes.
