We have had no rain to measure the past week but everything is pretty and green. We have very few wild flowers due to lack of rain last fall and winter.
There were 13 folks attending the community meeting last Saturday night. The working committees for the upcoming May picnic were appointed and will be published later. The ladies will get together and clean up the community center on Thursday, May 15th, and the men will clean the grounds as they can get to it that week.
The Elm Grove VFD had a work day last Saturday with about 20 members present. They worked on the brush truck and the pump was rebuilt on unit 401. A fund raiser is planned in the near future.
Marilyn Suber and I attended the 4-H rifle shooting competition at the fair barns in Brownwood last Saturday where Jaxon Tucker was competing. I find it interesting to watch the kids at these meets.
Marilyn and I went to San Angelo today (Monday) for my checkup with Dr. Rahman. I received a good report. The countryside up that way is nice and green. I did not see any cotton planted, yet. Stacie Smith accompanied us to the Dr. and then we were joined by Holly White and Santos Elizondo and his parents, Santos Sr. and Nonie Elizondo for lunch.
The Holt cemetery workday is this Saturday with the business meeting beginning at 9:30 AM.
We received a note and some pretty pictures from Rusty McPherson showing his and June’s great grandson,Shawn Skaggs, winning big at the stock show in Louisiana. Shawn is the son of Rayna and Will Skaggs and the grandson of Wayne and Valerie Gossett.
Curtis and Wilma Lee recently had visitors from New Jersey and the metroplex. They included their daughter, Ellen and Dane Schoenberk and granddaughter, Katy, who works and lives in New York City. They were joined by Nancy Lee and Ann Lien from the metroplex and they all enjoyed a good visit.
There were some reports on our sick folks at the community meeting. Linda Tharp has been at home for the last few days and feeling fairly well. She will be going back for more treatments in the near future. Mildred Weatherman has been home for about two weeks and getting around good with a walker after her fall.
