CENTERVILLE — The Exline Ramblers met and hosted their annual soup “Appreciation” dinner on Sunday, Nov. 4 at 5 p.m. at the Exline City Hall.

The meeting was called to order by President, Skyler Lawson. 

Lawson provided a recap of our activities that the Ramblers have accomplished for last year, some noted were the benches at the Appanoose County Fair, Adopt-A-Highway trash pickups, and the memory scrapbook for the family of Sgt. Master Travis Riddick. 

The prayer was given by Dr. Jaren Tubaugh.

 The Ramblers served the meal and then following the meal was the lighting ceremony for new members led by Lawson and alumni member, Shanielle Smith.  The new members (including Clover kids) that were present and participated are as follows:  Taylor Steele,  Wyatt Tait, Logan Fogle, Blaire Wright, Lynsdey Winkel, Sydney Winkel, Arianna Litke, Zoey Litke, Miles Clawson, Lexy Hedgecox, Conager Logston, Logan Everett and Makenzey Fogle.
