Don’t forget Exline Church of Christ Vacation Bible School. It starts Monday, June 17 thru Friday, June 21 from 1-3:30 p.m. each day. This years theme is God’s Great Big Fish Bowl. On Sunday, June 23 at 10 a.m. there will be a program put on and then there will be a celebration dinner at noon provided by the church ladies. Have your children and grandchildren attend this fun and learning camp. Sign up sheets are located at the Exline Store.
To all of the people that received notices for property clean up from the city they have extended the completion date by 30 days. Otherwise the city will do it and the charges for their cleanup will be added to your property taxes.
Also once again we need to mention dogs at large! There are by-laws that the city and county have in place about this. We understand that some of these dogs are strays and have been dumped but most of the problems are coming from local dogs and owners that think it’s okay to let them run around all the time and anywhere they want. I myself have lost livestock over this and I know others that have as well. Yesterday I had five dogs in my yard! They are forming packs and the danger of someone getting hurt is enormous! School is out and small children are often a target for these packs as well as adults, livestock and family pets are in danger! Even if your dog is nice or you think they wouldn’t hurt a flea, the pack mentality will change that in an instant. Keep you dogs on a leash or secure at all times. I would love to be able to walk my dogs without the fear of attack.
On a lighter note a group of our local women went shopping in Des Moines for fabric for various projects that they are working on. Maryann, Ruth, Frieda and Peggy had a great afternoon enjoying each others company and getting great deals.
