Howdy. We’ve had a lot of rain this week, which is good for everything. I know it’s set a few farmers back for cutting grass and hay, “but all in due time” as I have heard many people say.
Around 30 people signed up to do the 5K run at 9 a.m. Thought it was going to get rained out but the storm stopped and as they say in show business, “the show must go on,” they had a great time, then about 100 people came out for the dinner and music. We found out that the Norwood Fire Dept. started in 1952, the same year that Jan Kelly was born. That’s an easy way for her to remember the date.
The Fire Dept. elected a new board member, Brian Connell, congratulations.
I know everything is closing up but if anyone wants to visit and drink coffee, you’re welcome to come to the sale barn. I usually get there around 6:30. Thursdays only.
I want to send my sincere sympathy to the family of Burdell Harp. He passed away this week.
Camp Joy will be here before you know it. The memories I had of roaming those Ozark hills and swimming are great. But what I learned was greater. I can remember the puppet shows by the Taylors and the Cunninghams, preaching and checking the cabins, (mine never won) and the old cantina that George would open for us kids. We all had a sweet tooth.
Our anniversaries are Alan and Jessica Keeling on the 10th, Ron and Pat Cramer will be on the 11th, along with Jeff and Lianne Bradshaw. Glen and Glenda McKinley will be on the 13th. Chad and Kat McIntosh is on the 14th and Price and Lorene Laub, John and Heidi Kelly, and Kaleb and Jessica O’Guin all will celebrate on the 16th.
Someone asked how is the room coming along on Janet Atchison’s home? Well, they are about out of money and they still have a little more to do. The outside is about done, but they have to sheet rock and insulate. It might get done before cold weather sets in. Ha, ha!
Mike and Karen Ross’ little grandson is home for now. He had seven major surgeries. He has 200 screws in his little head and over 70 staples. He has to fly back to have it checked out again. He is eight hours from the hospital. Mike, Karen and Kathlene (great grandma) appreciates everyone’s concern and prayers. Noah is 3 1/2 years old.

Until next week, God bless our little town.
