We had 1.6 inches of rain out at Elm Grove and 2.6 inches here in Richland Springs. Saturday was a perfect day for the Homecoming picnic. There were a lot of people there but I don’t know how many signed the register.
The “Country From The Heart” band was there and provided music throughout the day. They are always a hit at the picnic. The band members included: Benny Deeds of Elm Grove, Jim Davee of Eola, Jerry Tedder of Brady, Marilyn Powell of Placid, and Elmer Ray of Brady. Mrs. Ray and Mrs. Tedder also were there.
Weldon Faught was there with his horse drawn wagon giving rides which was enjoyed by everyone. Vada Duncan and I climbed on for the last ride of the day. There was a large number of kids to take part in the games. Valerie Gossett and Kitty Cummings did a good job of providing fun for the kids. Mr. and Mrs. Gene Frost was there for the first time. It was good to see Van Gibboney, Mildred Weatherman, Linda Tharp, Charles Gilbreath and Mode Mask all feeling well enough to come out for the day.
Everyone seemed to thoroughly enjoy the day and we invite you all back next year on May 16th for the next homecoming picnic. As always we want to remind you to mark your calendars for the upcoming rodeo on August 7,8 & 9.
We had seven members present for the Busy Bee quilting day last Tuesday. They included Fay and Gloria Lusty, Grace Hardman, Irene Hammett, Catalina Luna, and Marilyn Miller. Also, we were happy to welcome a new member, Viola DeLand. Gloria’s quilt was almost finished and she will complete it at home. Marilyn Miller will bring a quilt to be worked on next month.
My grandson, Wiley Cummings and his wife, Tara, will be teaching and coaching at a new location this next school year. Wiley has taken a position at Petersburg and Tara will be at Roosevelt. I don’t think Kitty and Charlie are too happy about the grandkids moving so much further away.
