Morning message at Rockville United Methodist Church by Pastor Larry Sorrells was titled “Thanks, Dad!” from Luke 15:11-31. You are always welcome Sunday at 9 a.m. for worship, Tuesday Bible Study at 9 a.m.

Tri-County Quilt Club will not meet on July 6.

The Mt. Zion area has been busy harvesting wheat. It will be nice to buy more than a little sack of flour again. Bailing hay and planting soybeans. The wildflowers along our country roads are beautiful. You should take a drive just to see them.

Several folks enjoyed riding on the Oats Bus last week when John Snethen made the trip to Boliver. Looking forward to the Senior Center opening back up.

Wanda Rectors’ family has figured out how to keep her at home. Her daughter, granddaughter and great-grandaughters all came to help mom-grandma clean house. With four generations of seven women working, day and a half later you’ve thought it was a different house wallpaper removed, beautiful new painted walls, furniture rearranged, pictures different places. Wanda was very proud and happy for her family’s help.

Glad Laverne Montley is home and doing well. She has called neighbors for eggs, probably cooking already?

Glad Julia Snethen is feeling much better and able to go shopping at Wal-mart and Dollar Tree in Clinton and to the beauty shop one day last week.

Over at the Robin Siegismund Farm, Belle decided it was too hot to help Robin mow the yard. Usually, she walks along behind as Robin mows, but last week she went to her private area under the deck. Robin is busy crocheting little blankets with animal shapes, making the pattern real cute.

Tom and Beverly Pelkey are doing much the same, Tom is mowing grass and putting wood in the shed for winter,  Beverly has been sewing plus feeding the hummingbirds and still cleaning out a lot of stuff.

Dixie Peterson is still celebrating her birthday, enjoying all the cards when not doing therapy, or watching TV.

Howard Peterson enjoyed dinner Sunday in the Stacy and Mike Griffith and Marge Zink home.
