Edith McKinnon’s granddaughter, Sharon (Garcia) Sally is on a young children’s bowling team twice a week and enjoys it very much. Edith reported the Tecumseh Firehouse ham and beans supper for Father’s Day was a successful event with door prizes on Saturday evening. Among the prizes was the Howell-Oregon donation of three weather radios. Edith’s daughter, Zoe Ann Sally, in the St. Louis area has had a re-occurance of lymes disease, which is quite painful and disabling.
Jerry Miller enjoyed yellow squash from her neighbor, Richard Blackburn.
As these news are written we are getting rain showers. Grass is growing so fast now that mowing will be quite a chore.

Remember to give someone a smile when they don’t have one.
