We want to thank a few more that helped with the Shoe Factory Reunion last week. We especially want to thank all who came and enjoyed the day. That’s how we can keep it going each year. Nathan and Donna Hughes really did a good job since Patty and Glenda are still not able to do it all and will still need your support next year. Thanks to the Madison people that come every year, Jimmy and Mary Simmons and Billy and Mary Lynn Jewell. Donna did a super job in getting the entertainment and door prizes. Thanks to the merchants and business people for their donations. Edelweiss Floral provided the flower decorations and they were all given away in the drawing. Marsha Patterson, Jo Konkle and Carol Sublett also donated their good music. Thanks to all.

Glenda Sullivan had a nice visit with Hazel Wilkerson and Ethel Mae Althoff at Sheila’s Monday.

Margaret Lee Weidmann had supper Sunday evening with Randy, Lorraine and Ryan Brown to celebrate Ryan’s birthday. Lorraine fixed a great meal as usual. Cheryl Messmore was not able to be there and was missed. Jason Messmore visited Grandma, Randy, Lorraine and Ryan Brown on his way to Indianapolis to visit friends for the weekend. Kay O’Neal also visited Margaret Lee during the week.

We enjoyed the fish fry at the East Enterprise Fire House. A lot of Florence people attended and many more. They gave nice door prizes but you know, I didn’t win anything.

We enjoyed the Easter Sunrise Service and breakfast at the Florence Church of Christ and I heard many other churches saying the same thing.

Happy birthday to Gary Bennett and Loretta Westrick and Danna Lee Adams.

Richard and Leona Adams enjoyed a lovely cruise to Cozumel, Mexico, the Half Moon Island, Grand Cayman Island on the West Caribbean Cruise. They enjoyed the people, the trip and they ate all the time.

Dale and Danilee Thompson of North Vernon spent part of Easter weekend in Florence, but Dale was taken to KDH Saturday night and on to the Columbus hospital. He will be okay. Keep him in your prayers.
