Rita and Gene Smith, Steve Jones-Ellard, Sam Jones-Ellard, Bernie Beck, Lee Jones, Mike Best, Pat Fuller, Bily Edelbroich, Christy and Eric Edelbroich and children, Brandi and Eric Doan, Debbie and Brian Talbert, Tony and Donna Talbert and Marie, Bruce Talbert, Tom and Tessi Currin, Pat Currin and Livia, Chris and Linda Fryman, Greg Fryman, B.J. and Brandi Fryman, Michelle and Jessie Olson and children, Bill and Marie Mistler. They all had a good time and good food. Michelle from the Liberty-Richmond area had a Tupperware party open and got lots of good orders. It was a great day and they were talking about their next get together.

The Vevay VFW Post 5396 and Vevay American Legion Post 285 presented the Ladies for Liberty Patriotic Musical at the Hoosier Theater Saturday night. A big crowd enjoyed the show. Caden Kelly was chosen from the audience to assist the ladies in singing “O Johnny.” He was their “Johnny” and they gave him a hat and a kiss. He loved it and says he has new girl friends now.

I had a nice visit by phone with Juanita Baer Sunday. She has been in the Dearborn County Hospital and the Fairfield Mercy Hospital for a serious heart condition. Gladys Bond has been in the LaGrange, Kentucky and Baptist East hospitals in Louisville. Ruth Lohide is recovering at home. Paul Ballard is recovering at home with Sharon’s help. Get well prayers for all of them and many more. Ed Trinkle called to ask about Ruth Lohide and others and said his brother Jack is improving but still needs our prayers.

We were very sorry to hear of the death of little Chanttelle Leah Mae Thomas. The 20-month-old daughter of Allisha Thomas and Joshua Howe lost her life in an automobile accident in Clark County, Indiana. She lived on Beatty Ridge near Florence. Allisha also was hurt and maybe others. Services were held at the First Baptist Church in Aurora Monday night and Tuesday. Contributions may be made to the Rullman Funeral Home in Aurora to defray expenses. Call 812-926-1450. We extend our sympathy to the family.
