Miller Grove News for April 21, 2010

E-mail Print PDF
News in the community is scant this week, but I stopped by H.C. and Mary Lou Akins’ home the other day to drop off a few pictures and things I had borrowed to copy, and Mary Lou said she saw the first hummingbird of the season. Get your hummingbird feeders out because they’re already in the area.

Remember if you have pictures of events that went on at Miller Grove School over the years to please let me know so that we can include them in our Sesquicentennial book that will be published next year. Pictures of the school building, organizations (such as FFA and FHA), faculty members, school board trustees, May-fate, sports, etc. would all make great additions to what we already have. I am also searching for pictures of some of the other rural schoolS that consolidated with Miller Grove in the 1930s and 1940s. For example: Palestine School, Greenview School, and Center Point School.

I heard that Clark and Jessica May bought the place across from the old Wagley home southwest of Miller Grove. And Mrs. Irby has decided to sell part of her place. It is the land that is down the county road that goes by the school. Many of the older folks will remember it as the Dare Anderson place.

This week I ran into Bobbie Woodard and visited with her for a while at the Miller Grove vs. Saltillo softball game. She was there to see her great-granddaughter, who was playing for Saltillo.

Happy Birthday to the following MG folks: Zach Crispin, Rickey Stracener and James Ray Garrett on Apr. 19th. Maree Garmon’s 90th birthday was Tuesday, Apr. 20th. Congratulations to her!

Hank Echeverio had two birthday parties lately. His 80th birthday was on the 15th. He had one party with his children and their families that came to see him from the west coast (Washington AND Oregon). I heard that he really enjoyed their visit during the special occasion. Later he had a party with his wife’s family, the Fleckers. Maybe when I turn 80 I’ll get two parties too!

As you travel the highways and byways, don’t forget that all roads lead home and back to Miller Grove. Please send me any newsworthy information. My e-mail address is This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
