I would like to send out thanks and good praise to all of the people in town that are cleaning up their properties and doing all the attractive decorating, planting etc. It’s looking beautiful and it just sends out a message about our little town. I myself need to get out there as well and do some work but like always it’s time, money and weather.
I would also like to commend all of the city council and volunteers for all they are doing to spruce up the basketball court and other various projects in town. Keep it up!
Don’t forget that the Royal Neighbors garage sale is Friday, Aug. 2 and Saturday, Aug. 3. This is also the city wide sale day and anyone is encouraged to have a sale that weekend. If you don’t want to bother just donate your stuff to the Royal Neighbors and enjoy the spirit of giving. Call Maryann for drop off.
The ice cream social is being held Aug. 24 in the park and as always there will be amazing homemade ice cream and fire cooked cobblers and such. Make sure you keep this event and spend some time with friends and yummies.
Joy Golden made a trip to Arizona recently to visit family and friends. She was accompanied by daughter Jill Sharp and granddaughter Jasmine. On the drive down they had to stop for two hours for a dust storm that made it impossible to drive on a Texas highway. They got to visit and see Joy’s great-grandchildren for the first time. Ryland who is 3 and Kaelyn who is 1 month old. Then the shopping and sightseeing all along was just wonderful.
Abby Walsh has been in town visiting her family for about a month. She leaves to go back to start her first full time teaching position in Virginia at a high school in the special education area. We are so proud of our small town girl making it in the big city.
