Good Samaritans are alive and well in our community.
One lone sole was seen picking up trash on the old highway a few days ago and I met a new neighbor last week that has made it his mission to clean off the recurring graffiti on the local roadways. Thanks from both of us and from the community for your efforts.
You are cordially invited to the High Prairie Potluck Picnic on Sunday August 22, 2004, starting at 1 p. m. The event will be held at the Community Center property at 705 Struck Rd. Bring your guitar, or other musical instrument, your lawn chair and your addition to the meal. Practice up on your horseshoe game so that you are ready to challenge your neighbor.
