Morning message at the Rockville United Methodist Church was conducted by Pastor Linda Wansing. You are always welcome to join us for worship Sunday at 9 a.m. and Bible study Tuesday morning 9 a.m.
Mt. Zion area weather is normal for us hot or cold all in the same day. Did see farmers getting fields ready for planting and a lot more baby calves in pastures.
Wish a speedy recovery to Archie Pier from his recent surgery, Judy is doing fine from her surgery.
Forgot to mention a few weeks ago someone filled in “gator lake” just off B Hwy. Going into Rockville there was a big pit hole that kept getting bigger until we named it gator lake. Heard a rumor that one of the grain trucks fell into it and hasn’t been seen since! That I don’t really believe. I’m not the city slicker I once was 35 years ago. Whoever fixed it, Thank You. They are more pots holes growing maybe a new lake in the making.
Over at the Robin Siegismund Farm, Belle is happy the new calf is a girl named Thursday, nice to have a girl baby even if it’s a calf. Belle is getting her feelings hurt, people are telling her she stinks like a skunk which she knows, but she didn’t think it was bad! It will go away when she does snow angels. Robin and Mabel are doing okay.
Wanda Rector enjoyed watching her great-granddaughter win first place at the roller blade contest in Springfield recently. But Wanda got upset when she wanted to sign up for classes to learn how to roller blade, the teacher told her they didn’t have a class in her age bracket. Wanda returned home on Thursday still a little peeved but did enjoy quilting Thursday.
Another land mark is gone; the old church in Rockville that has been empty for years was torn down, you can’t even tell there was a building there. Looks like getting ready to plant garden.
Tri County Quilt Club meeting is March 6, at the Rockville Methodist Church Fellowship Hall, lunch at 12:30 p.m. meeting 1:30 p.m. Call Marge for information at 660-598-4242.
John and Julia Snethen had a busy week with John keeping his bus route going. Julia kept her appointments in Bolivar and Osceola, doing some shopping before returning home.
