Last Thursday I had a nice visit with Tommie Jean Lennon. She let me borrow a few pictures to copy to be included in the school’s anniversary book. Just a few weeks ago she was featured in the “Kitchen Scents” section of the Rains County Leader. It was a very good article about how she and husband, Norwin Lennon, met at the skating rink at Miller Grove.
The cemetery trustees had a meeting Saturday at the Methodist Church. If anyone would like to be added to the cemetery’s e-mail list, please let me know and I will pass the word along to Coy Johnson to add you so that you can receive an e-mailed copy of the minutes.
While I am on the subject of the cemetery, I will mention that we have heard this week from the Texas Historical Commission that they will soon be ready to set the wording and have the marker made. Maybe it will be ready to install in the fall.
Mrs. Kim Irby has just returned from a trip to Arizona to see her son and his family.
All of the birthdays I can think of for this week fall on one day. Happy birthday to Virgie Johnson, Rodney Lennon and Kent Renshaw on July 30.
Happy 64th wedding anniversary to Lewis and Bobbie Woodard on July 27! That is an anniversary that few couples get the privilege of celebrating. Also, Steve and Cathy Rhodes will celebrate an anniversary on July 29. Even though Steve and Cathy don’t live in the community anymore I thought I would include them since so many people know them.
Coach Gary Billingsley and family have moved out of the school’s rent house, and the new P.E. teacher/girls basketball coach, Ryan Alec, and his family will soon be moving into the rent house.
My grandmother, Lela Darrow, is doing better after not feeling too well for several weeks.
News in the community is still somewhat slow. I’m hoping things will pick up when school starts.
