Just down the road from the ordinary; and how beautiful it is
Wow! What a time we had last Saturday night at the hamburger and ice cream dinner. Jason and his helpers sure cooked some fine burgers and Emily and her helpers made some great beans. But — the homemade ice cream was to die for. Chocolate, vanilla and strawberry ice cream plus toppings, had everyone going back for seconds. The dining room, as well as the patio, was overflowing with hugs and chit-chat among friends. Thanks, Emily, for all your hard work. It was short, but oh, so sweet.
Keep Jason and Renea in your thoughts, as they are out in the heat keeping our community beautiful. Happy Birthday, Jason.
Just a reminder: Bellsouth has installed DSL in our small town. Hubby and I have it and it is great, except for the few times it goes off line.
The community center is holding a yard sale later in the year and they would appreciate any items you might donate. Please call Emily or Laurie and they will make arrangements to have them picked up. The proceeds will go to our community center for maintenance, utilities, supplies and other needed items.
Breakfast will be held this Saturday, August 18 from 7-9 a.m. followed by the corporation meeting. Potluck will be held on Saturday the 25th at 6:30 p.m. at the community center.
Due to Labor Day falling on the first Monday, the town meeting has been moved to Wednesday, September 5 at 7 p.m.
Emergency plans will be updated this fall. Please call the town office to give your home and emergency telephone numbers.
Soon the Ladies Auxiliary will be sending out letters asking for a donation to the most important part of any community — the fire department. Like most small communities, we receive very little funds from local and state taxes; therefore, to have proper fire protection, we must raise funds for emergency equipment. Most residents send their donations in quickly, but surprisingly, a few still have not sent theirs in, resulting in extra hard work for others.
The small amount the department is asking you to donate is far, far below what you would be taxed if you lived in a larger city. Would you pay a nickel for the fire department to come put out a fire that was out of control on a lot next to your home, or would you pay for the gas of a fire truck to save your family or your home? This small amount is what the department is asking you to donate every month. This is the best money you will ever spend in your community.
Our friends Bill Stone and Don Jeanes joined us for breakfast and hamburgers this week. Bill and Don have always offered their expertise to our community when asked.
Pray for Stanley Bezzo and also for our young boys and girls over in Iraq.
