It looks like we need to be careful what we wish for, some were looking for more snow to do the winter outside activities. Well we got a good supply this past week, enough that we had two shut down days, the first one closed the school and many other places, the second one at least closed our church. The snow banks are very high where the snow is pushed back; but it is beautiful. The Highway Dept. does a great job.
There was much concern this past week as we learned of the riots over in Cairo, as that is where Lucus Pierce, his parents and girl friend, had just arrived at the Cairo airport to learn they were trapped in a dawn to dusk curfew at the airport. They had gone there for a two week vacation on the Nile River. Needless to say that was cancelled, they did get out by emergency airplane flight and were taken to safety, I believe they are in Germany for the remainder of their vacation. A thankful community that they are safe.
A reminder we are encouraged to send cards to Bud Cushing for his 90th birthday on Feb. 12, it is never too late to still send a card. Hope you are making plans to stop at the Library for the Chocolate Tasting on Sunday, Feb. 13 from 2 to 4. Nice sweet treats.
News travels far and wide; Ed Collins told me lately that one of his relatives from California that visited here recently, told him the news of his graduation reach all the way to the west coast. Another news item that got a lot of response was the collection of bottle tops to help a patient get a free dialysis treatment with the collection of 1,000 tops, well we received word that this project has now come to a close, at this time they are no longer needed. Thanks to town assistance the Medical equipment was moved to the basement of the Town Hall for the time being. Anyone that has a need for equipment should contact Janice Allen 963-8912.
