A good morning to all our readers. We hope everyone had a good weekend and was safe and happy.
We have had a busy week here at the village. To start with on Thursday was our monthly dinner with Heart of the Ozarks and Ava Place furnishing our meal. Our hats are off to the ladies from Ava Place who came and served us. There was twenty-five names signed on the book with six of them as guests. Carla Wagner and Debra Dade were the ladies from Ava Place. Again, we send our appreciation to all who had a part in our dinner.
Then on Saturday several residents attended the memorial for Verla Hallmark at the Ava Family Funeral Home. Then back to the village to serve dinner to the Hallmark family and guests.
Then Sunday Danny Letsinger came to fill in for Pastor Tom Maples for our Sunday afternoon sing along and the reading of God’s word. We were blessed as a young girl sang a beautiful song for us as her mother played the keyboard.
On Monday afternoon Connie Burris came from Heart of the Ozarks and we had our game day. A lot of our people were at the doctor’s office and could not attend. But our hats are off to Connie as she keeps us on our toes and we look forward to the time she spends with us.
