Our community is very blessed as special persons make it their choice to spend the summer seasons with us; they really become an extension to our community family. Several of these persons are very talented and they are willing to share their talents with us. I am very sorry that I overlooked to mention one such person Antie Munroe she exhibited her photography at the library and I did not give you notice of this event, please forgive me!
Another item that we need to be proud of as a community is the many of our young men and women that offer their services to military duty. It is with much gratitude to welcome Sgt. Jake Reynolds back after his second deployment to Afghanistan in the last 3 years. Our gratitude and joy that you have returned safely to your family and all of us. I appreciate getting word of those who serve of your service so ask families to keep me informed.
It is very special for me to know that the Paine Library is still holding the Ellie Campbell Golf Scramble after some 15 years. Ellie came to our library as a wonderful volunteer while I was there and she came up with this idea for a fund raiser and got us started. It was sad when we learned of her death but she was so special that we wanted to continue to honor her gift to us.
The next big Library fund raiser will be the Annual Folk Craft Fair on Saturday July 27 so mark your calendar and plan to make a day of it.
It was sad to learn of the death of Father Delbel, he was well liked by this community when he served here and he will be missed.
Candidates running for local offices are letting us know of their desire to serve our community, so urge us to get to get to know them and what they stand for in the service they seek.
Happy Birthday to: Howerd Mero July 25, Trinity Johnpeer July 25, Mattie Russell July 27, Pete Trow Bridge July 26. (forgive me if I get the dates wrong, it is hard to keep a good record, I may stop doing this.)
