By Lois Lumbra — This has been a gorgeous Sunday, the weather just perfect, plenty of sunshine and a nice cool breeze. This morning while at Church, got the news of the Dutchburn house burnt to the ground. Penny and I went down this afternoon and viewed the remains. Sad!!
Sue Peter’s has returned home after meeting up with her sister Judy Haeffner from Illinois, and she was accompanied by her daughter Dana Koch and granddaughter Matty. They vacationed at Myrtle Beach and had a fun filled week , with lots of good food, and catching up on Family.
7/12, The 500 Card Club met at the home of Linda and Merle Van Gieson’s home on West Hill. Linda had invited everyone to come at noon, she prepared delicious sandwiches, chips and dip, pickles, tea, punch , or coffee, and peanut-butter pie or brownies for dessert. There was chips and candy to munch on during the afternoon. Carmen had high score for the afternoon, she had her granddaughter Bryn come with her and she did a nice job keeping score for her grandmother, and second high was Denise Baker, most horses was a tie between Connie McFarland and Therese Begnoche, Therese drew high card being the winner of most horses. The August meeting will be held at Connie McFarlands on the 9th and she has asked everyone to come at noontime.
7/14, Ten ladies of the Green Mountain Ruby Reds came together at “The Crossing’ restaurant in Richford for lunch. We had planned to go to the Mini-golf in Essex and meet up with another Red Hat Group and go out for lunch at Mimmo’s. But due to the weather being so unpredictable, hot or a storm warning we cancelled that event. It is always nice to get together and chat, laugh and eat good food.
Randi Hacker awaits the arrival of her daughter Juliana from Germany on July 27th. She has been there studying since February. She traveled extensively through Europe including making a Sound of Music pilgrimage to Salzburg!! But perhaps the most amusing thing she did during her time at University of Bonn was to take a beginning level Spanish class…taught in Germany!!

From an elderly friend… If my body were a car I would trade it in for a newer model. Why? Because every time I cough or sneeze my radiator leaks and my exhaust back fires!!! Thought you needed a good laugh this week.. and hope you have a nice week..
God Bless Us ALL!!!
