Last Weeks News – We are still having beautiful weather here in the Ozarks. I will take it as long as it continues.
Dick and I had lunch with Norma Cross and Kenny one day last week. Seth was with them over the weekend. He wasn’t feeling very good. Hope he is better by now.
The students from Plainview School all spent Friday on the Glade Top Trail. They had such a pretty day for their trip. They had hot dogs and etc. at the pavilion. They had a good time. Julian Cavalier did some work at the Goodhope Store building last week.
Kailey Thompson went to Lance Loeber’s birthday party Saturday at the Plainview School gym. Lance was 14 years old. He is in the 8th grade.
The General Baptist Church youth attended the A.T.V. races Saturday evening. Several of them rode in the races. There was a large crowd. Roy and Brenda Reed donated all the proceeds to the youth fund leaders. They fixed loaded baked potatoes for a donation Sunday evening.
The leaders are planning a trip with the youth later this year. Kyle Thompson got a new 22 rifle for an early birthday present. His dad and pappie helped him wear the new off of it. I think they enjoyed shooting it as much as Kyle did.
Zohn Engelhardt spoke to the young people Sunday night for youth night. He did a wonderful job. Zohn, you are welcome to come back again.
Laverna Hall was telling me about the Mound Dare Devil, four wheel group – Jerry and Janice Hawkin, Kenny and Ann Goin, Sam and Eva Lawrence and Jerry and Laverne Hall. It sounds like they have a good time riding their four wheelers through the countryside, looking at the beautiful hills here in the Ozarks. Sometimes they even take a lunch on their trip. I don’t care what some people might say about these hills, but I say this is the best place in the world to live.
May God bless.
This Weeks News – I’m not sure why the Rome items weren’t in the paper last week, maybe they didn’t have room or the mail carrier didn’t pick them up in time to put in the paper. Again I might say, we are enjoying this weather.
Tuesday Pete and Sandra Jenkins from Fayetteville, Arkansas came up to visit Norma Cross and Kenny Hunt and Dick and me. He took us ouf for lunch then we all went to the nursing home to see Peggy Jenkins, Goldie Miller and Irene Richards. I ran into Christine Leach, at Town and Country Store.
