Just when we think winter has moved on, Mother Nature brings us some more cold weather. The weatherman says we have had the coldest winter in ten years and it just keeps hanging on. It has been cold all day today (Monday).
We were sorry to hear of the passing of Mode Mask, age 89, of Richland Springs. The Mask family were residents of Elm Grove for many years. Graveside services were held for Mode on Tuesday at the Richland Springs Cemetery. We send our sympathy to Emily and the family.
My sister, Addie Long, age 89, of Brownwood passed away last Tuesday night. She has been in and out of the hospital since December 10th. Services for her were held Saturday with interment at the Cox Cemetery. I am the last of seven children born to Van and Minnie Hardman Mitchel. Our family lived at Holt when Addie and I were born.
There were 4 1/2 tables of 42 players at the tournament here in Richland Springs last Saturday night. Alan and Phyllis Taylor took home first place, Andy Cummings and Michael Suber placed second and Larry Cottrell and Arlene Stratton came in third. The next tournament will be April 10th at Elm Grove.
Remember the gospel singing this Saturday night at the Elm Grove community center. Everyone is invited.
There were only five members present to work on the quilt at the Busy Bee quilting day last week. They were Irene Hammett, Grace Hardman, Fay and Gloria Lusty and Carol Orr. They worked on a quilt for Grace and thought she would bring it back in April. The quilt for the Richland Springs VFD fundraiser was completed by the quilting club who meet at the Baptist Church on Wednesday evenings. I’m sorry I don’t remember the name of the club but the members who worked on the quilt were, Sue Ransom, Beatrice Soto, Kay McKee, Billie Behrens, Vera Ralston and Susan Luna. Thanks, ladies, for helping out with that.
