I cannot believe that it snowed last night! However, many have been saying that it was supposed to snow the last week of March.
The citizens of Fordland are looking forward to the annual Easter Parade and Easter Hunt on Saturday, April 23. Line up for the parade will be at 2:30 p.m. with the parade beginning at 3 p.m. The Egg Hunt will begin at 4 p.m. in the Fordland City Park. There will be over 8,000 eggs to hunt this year.

If you are looking for something fun to do. Come and take a tours of the Chateau Charmant (the castle here in Olga). If you would like a tour of the beautiful castle in our neighborhood, call 241-2321. Ask for the tour guide to meet you at Kindall Store and tell you the history behind the store before you depart on a tour of the castle. There is much history in our community.
I appreciate all of those who have called and checked on me the last few weeks. I have really been sick and am glad to report that I am feeling much better. It sure has been nice to get out of the house and was even better to be back in church on Sunday morning. I appreciate all of my friends and neighbors.
Remember that the Webster County Opry will be this Friday night at the Rogersville Senior Center. The show will celebrate its 14-year anniversary and will begin at 6:30 p.m. We hope to see you all there. It is hard to believe that it has been that many years since the show began. It has grown so much and our family has been proud to be a part of its history.
Five generations of our family have enjoyed the Opry. My parents, Philip and Alverta Hargis always came and Mom would often make pies and my Dad enjoyed handing out programs at the door. Daughter Jeanette has always taken pictures when she is at the show and grandson Nicholas started the show.
Our great-granddaughter Reagan has even been on stage during my comedy act and she wore a hat just like Nanny’s. We enjoy coming each April and being part of the anniversary performance.
Remember that Elsie Myers has asked that we all participate in the 6th annual cherry pie contest will take place on Friday, April 29 during the Marshfield Cherry Blossom Festival. The contest is open to anyone who wishes to participate; you do not have to live in Marshfield or Webster County.

Pies can be dropped off at the church beginning at 1 p.m. Judging will take place at 4 p.m. You can learn more by contacting Elsie at 859-3258. You can also visit the festival website for a complete list of information concerning the festival at www.cherryblossomfest.com.
Hope to see you out this way in the near future.
