John Brooks was in Lubbock this past week attending the FFA convention. John didn’t escape any of the heat as Lubbock has had as much or more than we have had around here, but I just bet he had a good time.

Visiting this past week in the home of Rufus and Tommye Cobern was his daughter Vee Peters and son Garrett of Duncanville. His son Rusty and wife Pam and children will be visiting this week.

Thursday Toni Mayben, Patsy Henniger and Jane Clark were in Granbury for the celebration of Monte Arms birthday. They were joined by Carrie Wayne Keeney and Nancy Hicks came from Alvarado for the party.
A going away party was held for Don and Charlie Graham who will soon be moving to Allen. They are going to be missed in the community.
Catherine Hicks was to celebrate a birthday Sunday, but she wanted to put it off because a sow was to give birth Sunday and she didn’t want to miss that.
According to grandpa Jim she is really into the pig business. To give up a birthday party for a bunch of little pigs is really something most youngsters would never think about doing. You have all heard of "going to the dogs", well in this case it is "going to the hogs."
Happy birthday goes out to Jamie Garrett who will celebrate a birthday Saturday, July 23, to Chris Mayben whose birthday is July 24, and Nicklaus and Brady Freeland will celebrate a birthday July 24.
Congratulations go out to Jack and LaNell Daniels who will celebrate their anniversary July 27.
