Some local folks are home from a vacation that toured England, Scotland and Wales. Miles and Lynne Jones, Tom and Bonnie McCrindle, Raymond McCrindle, Doreen and Becky Nixon, Lynne Nixon and her friend Colleen all enjoyed the many sights Great Britain had to offer. As well some were able to look up relatives while there. Miles and Lynne Jones spent an extra week in Wales visiting with relations there.
Cool weather and showers have delayed haying operations in the district to a bit later than normal. It’s terrible when the furnace cuts-in in July.
Ken and Eleanor Schultz attended the 50th wedding anniversary celebration for LeRoy and Jean Peterson held at their daughter and son-in-law Linda and Tex Danielson’s farm in the Hand Hills on Saturday. Of local interest Jean is the daughter of the late John and Martha (nee Ziemmer) Mohl.
