Chivalry is not dead! Last week I had a flat tire at the post office, Jeff Bailey hopped out of his truck, grabbed his jack and a tarp to lay on in the rain and promptly changed it for me. Thank you sincerely! (Barbara)
At the Sundowners monthly luncheon at Spooky's this past Sunday there were eight members and three visitors. No officers were present so the meeting was cancelled.
Saturday, there once again were over a dozen volunteers at the "Lyle Activity Center." There were vacuums humming, hammers breaking out glass, mops being yielded and lots of visiting and catching up on events. The building is getting winterized, the windows being insulated until news ones can be installed, heaters cleaned and rooms readied for up-coming events. If you aren't involved in this endeavor you are encouraged to get involved. All greeted Lori Hull who has recently returned from a month's visit out of the country. Welcome back, you were missed!
