A thrilling week for me this past week, it was wonderful to be a part of the election process this year. This was one of the greatest turnouts of voters in a long time, with 819 of a possible 1,400 eligible voters turning out, and they were young, first time voters or inactive voters and they picked their choice with over the top votes. So take note to the younger age range of voters you do have power at the polls; you elected a whole new representation. Now hope those running will be good stewards and pick up their signs.
I am writing this column just after seeing the Drama Club presentation of “Little Shop of Horrors.” It was fantastic, over the top performance. The actors had such confidence and all share a great talent, it was just outstanding.
The seven churches have joined together to offer the program and meal to honor our veterans and their guest. This is a small token of our gratitude to the many that have served and some that are still serving, we appreciate your efforts to keep our country safe .
