As is the tradition in Rockville, Sun Rise services at 6:30 a.m. was held at the River of Life Church. Next year will be the United Methodist's turn to host. Pastor Kasey Beaton and James Damon brought the Easter message to a large crowd; breakfast was served after the service.

Mt. Zion Home Bible study met Tuesday at 7 p.m. in the home of Tom and Beverly Pelkey with 11 in attendance. We welcome you to join us.

Mt. Zion Club met April 16 in the Beverly Pelkey home, 10 members and three men enjoyed the day. Time was spent tacking lap robes, Joni Bledsoe from the Missouri Conservation Department brought a very informative program on bluebirds. We saw our first humming bird while enjoying our bountiful carry in dinner. Roll Call was “if you were an animal what animal would you like to be?” Some wanted to be an eagle, red bird, cat, dog and goat. Seed bingo was enjoyed before the ladies left for home to meet May 15 with June Marshall. We will have a plant exchange.

Tom and Beverly Pelkey went shopping Saturday having breakfast out.

Gregg Pelkey helped Tom with some chores around the place. Took time to go to their mushroom patch, no mushrooms but lots of scratching, think the turkeys got their first.

The trees are getting their leaves; folks are finding morel mushrooms, weeds are growing and gardens need hoeing and rain.
