Morning message at the Rockville United Methodist Church was by Pastor Nick Van Dam titled “Being a Man of God.” The ladies served the men a delicious breakfast of all their favorite breakfast food, no corn flakes this year for Father’s Day.

Mt. Zion Home Bible study held Tuesday at 7 p.m. in Tom and Beverly Pelkey home with nine in attendance.

Dixie Peterson celebrated another birthday, how many she can’t remember. Kent Crawford and Beth were recent visitors in the Peterson home as well as Mike and Stacy Griffith.

The Mt. Zion area has received rain the past few days; the wild blackberries are ripe and very nice this year.

At the Robin Siegismund Farm the kids are getting smarter, someone didn’t close the gate very well and the kids noticed. Since they have never been in the yard, this was a good opportunity so the kids and Bella exchanged yards. Fortunately for the kids, Robin caught them before they trimmed the flowers and everyone returned to their proper places. Guess it is true, mothers and teachers have eyes in the back of their heads.

The Rockville hand quilters enjoyed having Jimmy and Peggy Sue McEwan and Christine Williams visit Thursday, they finished the two quilts they were working on.

The Pelkey’s toured our county seriously, one day this week they were in El Dorado Springs trying out different restaurants. Saturday they went to the east of the county making it to Iconium and Toad Suck, we have a very pretty county. Tom’s container potatoes are doing very good and easy to harvest.

Julia Snethen was down with the stomach flu this week and Ron Thompson stopped by Sunday for Father’s Day.
