We have had no rain this past week, but with the warm temperatures, the gardens are really growing. I can’t wait for all those fresh vegetables.
Brad Shannon had some excitement out at his place just north of town last week. A bobcat came into his yard and jumped on his dogs. The report came back from Austin that the bobcat was rabid. Everyone needs to be sure and have your pets vaccinated and be on the look out for any strange acting varmints.
I need to clarify an item in last weeks column about the fish fry. It should have read "Richland Springs Fire Department." Elm Grove will have their VFD fundraiser on June 12th. Sorry about the confusion.
The Busy Bee quilters cancelled their meeting this month. The next quilting day will be June 8th.
There were only two tables of players at the 42 tournament Saturday night at Shiloh. Bill Harlow and Butch Webb won first place and Curtis Lee and David Hulme took home second. The next tournament will be June 12th at Richland Springs.
Marilyn and Bethany Suber and I rode to San Angelo Saturday with Amy and Georgia Tucker where we met Stacie Elizondo and Martha Tucker for our annual Mother’s Day outing. The girls gave us the royal treatment with manicures, pedicures or haircuts followed by lunch. Nonie Elizondo couldn’t make it but we had a very enjoyable day.
The Richland Springs Alumni Banquet was held last Saturday night. It was estimated that about 300 former students and teachers were present. Marilyn Suber was a member of one of the honor years having graduated in 1970. Eight of their remaining 10 class members were present and they had a great time visiting and catching up.
Wayne Mitchel and his son and daughter-in-law, David and Rhonda, were in town for the banquet and they came by for a visit with us. It was sure good to see them.
Theron and Kelton Parson came to pick me up Sunday morning. After picking up their other grandmother, Aldris Parson, in Brownwood, we joined Ken, Lanell and Hannah Parson at the Concord Church.
The big annual Elm Grove Homecoming picnic is this Saturday at the community center. Come and join us for a day of good food, fellowship and fun. We will have games for the kids as well as adults, wagon rides and live music for your entertainment. Hope to see you there.
Edith Gossett has suffered a stroke and remains in the Brownwood hospital. She will be missed at the picnic. We send Edith our best wishes.
