Well, now that things are nice and wet and the heat wave has been broken, the crops can fill out and the hail insurance guys can make their rounds in the community. There was, unfortunately, a lot of damage done during that hail storm, I hope you didn’t get hit too badly.
First and most importantly, the roof repair project has been delayed until after the long weekend because the tin has not arrived and with these violent storms we have been having, Kent reasoned that we couldn’t risk exposing the roof until the tin had been delivered. I will post the date here as soon as I hear.
The library is undergoing a face lift. If you smell paint as you pick up your mail or see the door of the library open on the wrong days, I am in there somewhere making a mess, so stop in and take a look.
Congratulations to Alyse and Devon Swanson and Angie and Joe Van StRaten for celebrating their wedding days this month. Hope you all have a long and wonderful life together.
There are still lots of 1982 history books available at the library for sale. If you don’t have one yet or need to replace your old, tattered one, stop in and a get a new copy. The Historical Society has started the process of collecting information for a new book, so keep your eye out for pamphlets on how to contribute to the new edition.
Don’t forget about the STARS ride coming up this Aug. 10. There is a pancake breakfast, silent auction, raffle draw, live music, roast beef supper, and, of course, the ride into the hills for the day.
It is a small column this week so I will end it with some quotes:
Camping: where you spend a small fortune to live like a homeless person.
The most wasted of all days is one without laughter – E.E. Cummings.
Have a great week.
