The Shoe Factory Reunion was fun again Saturday at the Jack Sullivan Senior Citizen Center. Patty and Glenda were not able to take care of it due to Glenda’s fall and broken knee and Patty’s “old age”; and they want to thank Nathan and Donna Hughes for taking over for them and doing a fine job. Thanks also to Mary Lou Furnish for helping them get things ready and to Alberta Pickett and others who helped at the reunion. Also thanks to Pan Lanman for his advertisements and for the Rivertimes also. The merchants in and around Vevay came through again with wonderful door prizes. Everyone won at least one prize. We always enjoy the people from Madison and Carrollton.

Happy birthday to Reba Jackson, my friend from Fairway Inn.

Paul and Jason Messmore came to the Charlie Peters visitation and visited with Margaret Lee Weidmann and took her to Mo’s for lunch. Margaret Lee’s other company was Kay O’Neal; Randy, Lorraine and Ryan Brown. She enjoyed a phone call from Kim Curry to get caught up on all the family. Margaret Lee also sends her sympathy for the Don Byram family.

We enjoyed the Aberdeen Pre School spaghetti supper Saturday evening. It was really good food and a fun time. Many attended. Patty took several carry out orders to friends that could not get there. Rahe Jean Griffin helped carry them to the car. Glenda got one of them and Mary Lou Bowman sent her some of her delicious cherry delights. Those Aberdeen ladies are really good cooks. Especially their butterscotch pies.

The Switzerland County Homemakers ladies met at the Aberdeen Methodist Church last Friday for their activities day. It was a Happy Birthday to Indiana Day for the Bicentennial. We had another delicious meal by the Aberdeen ladies.
