We would welcome a good rain as all vegetation is needing moisture to survive the long, dry spell. Gardeners are fortunate to have water holding out to water their vegetables.

The Lilly Ridge Cemetery committee meeting was held Sunday afternoon at 3:00 p.m. Present were Wayman and Carol King, Ida Mae Huse, Anna Larson, Leslie Hicks, Linnie Ingram, Marv Looney, Raymond Pace, Leslie and Judy Crawford, Valeta Crawford and Ernestine Gaddy. We lost our good committee chairman, Joe Gaddy, January 21st of this year. Bids were considered for the cemetery caretakers position and George Dixon was low bidder for the job.
