“Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together and running over. For with the same measure shall others give to you. For with the same measure that you give shall be measured to you again.” That verse makes me wonder how many people actually give a tenth of their earnings back to the Lord.
“….always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect.” I Peter 3:15
The best, most happy, historic event I witnessed last week was the- in school Pep Rally Thursday. Our students haven’t had Pep Rallies for many years. Thank goodness for Mrs. Stephanie Bohlander who arranged the rally. It was a beautiful sight to see the whole student body from the cute little cheering Pre-Schoolers to the handsome and attractive high schoolers singing, clapping and at the end dancing the “chicken dance”. Memorable! Mrs. Bohlander is determined that the Middle Schoolers are going to know “Eagle Fight Song” and the “School Song”. This spirited woman can even still remember her clarinet and trumpet fingering of the Limon fight song!
The Eads Senior Citizens who came to the monthly lunch thoroughly enjoyed the beef brisket that Rod and Dana Brown donated to the group. Darryl Stolzenberger smoked the brisket for Gail to serve. She also made warm wheat rolls and baked cheese hash brown casserole. Joyce Berry gave us an update on the future Senior Center across the street which is now two vacant gutted brick building. She said that Cindy McCloud is working on some new grants. Next month, Gail Voss, our director said she will fry the chickens and make gravy and Joyce Berry volunteered to make mashed potatoes. I remember that in the past June Blooding often made those potatoes. Bless her heart. Here are three important dates: Wednesday, July 5th is the Sage meal gathering to eat together at noon at the Center. It is important to call Areta Laird by Monday to make a RSVP to have a hot lunch delivered from Lamar on that day. On Thursday July 6th the Brunch will be at l0:00 a.m. The noon pot luck lunch will be Wednesday, July 19th. People who are of senior citizen age are welcome to come to these events as well as to play cards at the Center on Thursday evenings.
The weekend before last, Connie Weber was down to visit with her parents, Denis and Theresa Weber. All of them attended the graduation at Plainview School on Sunday and the parties that were held after graduation.
Dick, Kyle, and I joined my mom, Mary Huddleston; my brothers Mike and Larry, and a niece Kerri Bayne and her family for lunch in Lamar on Easter Sunday.
