We have received some rain this past week, but I couldn’t tell you how much. I know that the countryside is really pretty and green. The gardens are looking good and we are finally getting a good crop of wildflowers. I hear mowers and weed eaters running in all directions.
Marilyn Suber and I attended the Cox Cemetery meeting last Saturday. There were nine people in attendance. Brian Gober is again in charge of mowing the cemetery at the rate of $350 each time. Ed Campbell and Marilyn Suber were re-elected as directors. Ed was reelected president, Ben Dennis vice-president and June Beakley sec.-treasurer. The next meeting will be September 12th. The meetings are the first Saturday in May and the second Saturday in September.
The 42 tournament will be May 9th in Winchell. The Busy Bee quilters will meet on the 12th and the Elm Grove homecoming picnic will be Saturday, the 16th. The list of working committees was printed in last week’s paper. If you are wondering what your job is, call one of us, we all have copies which were handed out at the last community meeting. Some changes in the committees were made, if you were not at the meeting, you might want to check it out.
I spent last weekend with Lanell Parson and family in Bangs. I enjoyed watching 5 year old Hannah. She is a happy little girl and a joy to be around.
Be sure and get out and vote Saturday. There is a school board election, a city council election, as well as the bond issue for the school. Remember, as they say, if you don’t go vote, you can’t complain about the outcome!
