Before leaving town after the wonderful weekend, some other activities were fit into the schedule. Some of the couples were able to visit family while others went to the movie theater. And, of course, there was a trip to the Canteen — one made within 30 minutes of hitting the city limits.

"There are some great memories here. We've not been together for a long time," Gray said. "I feel bad we've lost so many - they would have loved to be here for this."

The Iowegian wants readers to think about the solicitation ordinance that will prevent groups or individuals from entering a roadway to solicit money. The Centerville City Council in June by a 5-0 vote passed the first reading of just such an ordinance. Public pressure and during a subsequent special meeting, the council voted 3-2 to table the ordinance. A second special meeting to discuss the solicitation ordinance is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 7 at City Hall. So, the question of the week is, "Do you or do you not support the ordinance to prevent solicitation of funds in city streets?"

A. I support the ordinance
B. I do not support the ordinance
C. Not sure
