Baseball has just started for the boys at school. Our first game was against the Cumby Trojans. Cumby won by a few runs, but I know we will do better when we play them on our home turf.
Thursday night was Open House at school. There were several parents that visited at elementary, but not as many at high school. PTO supplied cookies and punch in the cafeteria. We asked for everyone to sign in at elementary to get a count on how many parents and community members came, but I was never able to count to see the exact number that were present. I know that Mrs. Bland outdid herself decorating the hallway of the elementary building. The theme was “Growing Graduates,” and each wall was decorated like flower gardens with “little” graduates all around them.
Whether I’m in the grocery store, at a funeral, or in church, people always start conversations with me about Miller Grove news. The other night at Open House I met a man named Skip Dougherty who said he “religiously” reads Miller Grove news. He said it was interesting to be able to read about the community.
Next week is Pre-K and Kindergarten Roundup at school. If you know of anyone who wants to enroll their child(ren) for school next year, tell them to come on by. Pre-Kers must be 3 or 4 years old by Sept. 1, 2009, and meet certain requirements to enroll tuition-free. The only requirements for kindergarten enrollees is that they must be 5 years old on or before Sept. 1, 2009. For more information, just give me a call at school next week.
All of the birthdays for this week fall on two days. Happy birthday to Fran Sparks, Joe Weatherly, and Joe’s daughter, Jenny Arledge, on Mar. 18th; and Gary Darrow and Jim Burns on Mar. 21st.
Happy Anniversary to my mom and dad (Brett and Lynda Darrow) on March 18th. They will be married 31 years today. They tied the knot back in 1978. Bro. Jimmy Tarrant preformed the ceremonies at his home in Campbell.
I have heard that Jean Wren of Irving is doing much better now. She has lung cancer and is taking chemo treatments. She was recently in the hospital, but is home now.
I don’t know how many of you read the obituaries, but did you notice where Bobby Higginbotham, Greenview resident, was buried Monday? It was in the Barker Cemetery. Have you ever heard of the Barker Cemetery? If you haven’t, it’s probably because there hasn’t been a burial in the cemetery since 2000. It is a small family cemetery on Billy Paul Wright’s place (on County Road 1154 in the Greenview Community). Before the 2000 burial, no one had been buried in the cemetery in nearly 90 years.
I passed by the new fire station the other day and noticed that they were building something inside of the building. Later I was told that they were constructing an office and living quarters. Boy, old M.G. is really moving up-town.
