The Bunco girls, Sheri, Julia, Beverly and Marge, helped Dixie celebrate her birthday by having lunch before going to Bunco at the Lowry City branch of the St. Clair County Library Tuesday, June 20. Dixie had the most wins and Sheri had the most losses; a very enjoyable afternoon.

Wednesday, June 21, the Mt. Zion Club held their annual Picnic at the Forest Park in Appleton City. Thirteen ladies enjoyed their sack lunch and the shelter house was nice and cool. Their business meeting was conducted with devotion by Wilma; treasurer’s report by Beverly and secretary’s report by Julia. Then, we toured the Appleton City Museum, it was very interesting; nice and clean. I liked the quilts and wedding dress best; there was a picture of the Mt. Zion Church that hung in the Mt. Zion Church. Several of us attended the country school. One member, June Marshall, started her teaching career in a country school.
