Cemetary memorial project looking for help

By Michele Carlsten

---- — Hi everybody! I will just have to keep my mouth shut about the weather! It use to be a safe subject but my mouth is always eating its own words on that topic.

This week’s article is short and sweet this week.



1 graham cracker crust

2 pkg. instant chocolate pudding

Marshmallows small ones

1 small chocolate bar


Make pudding for pie instructions from box. Put one cup of marshmallows in bottom of pie crust. Top with pudding mixture. Let firm up for ½ hour in fridge. Top with another 1-1/2 c. marshmallows. Very carefully put the pie under the broiler till marshmallows start to turn brown and cool again. Shave pieces of chocolate over top and serve! Easy.

The Royal Neighbors needs your help. The Veteran’s Memorial and Flag project to be placed in the Cemetery is still short on donations. They need to raise a total of $3,500 to complete it. Call Maryann Hurley 315 E. 2nd St. in Exline, IA 52555 or by phone at (641) 658-2691 or (641) 895-7747

The Royal Neighbors Community Coffee was a roaring success on Monday, June 10 at the community center. More than 59 people attended to hear Enfys McMurry speak on her book, “A Mid-American Saga.” Two of our own which served in WWII, Bob Traxler and John Golden, attended as well. The hour long speech was very enjoyable. Cookies, coffee and punch were served.

Don’t Forget VBS Exline Church of Christ Bible School starts Monday, June 17 at 1 p.m. and goes through Friday. Bring your children and grandchildren to this week of fun and worship.

The community wide garage sale is on hold until August and they will let me know date and times which I will then let you know.

Join and encourage others to join the first annual 5K fun run/walk on July 4 starting at the Exline General Store. Registration is available till June 15 for a guaranteed shirt or July 1 if you’re not needing one. The walk is 1.5 miles and the run is 5K. If you have any questions contact Penny Sharp at (641) 658-2399 or (641) 895-2789. The Cutie contest will be held on July 4 for cuities under six at 10:30 a.m. They are still in need of vendors for the flea market, so bring your wares. It’s free and fun!
