The Switzerland Home Economics ladies enjoyed a great meeting and a delicious meal at the Aberdeen Methodist Church last week. Those ladies are really good cooks. I got my favorite: butterscotch pie. I think Patsy Walcott made it, like her mother used to do. I also got what was left of the cherry delight to bring home with me. Mary Lou Bowman, my niece made it. About 40 members and guests attended the Achievement Day program. It is always interesting and educational.

On Tuesday April 25th, Pat and Bob Slack of East Enterprise and Evon and Reta Gray of Pleasant attended the funeral of their cousin Kathleen M. Gullion of Lawrenceburg, Indiana. The clergy had a good message to the family. His name is Mark Tanner. Kathleen’s daughters, Nancy and Cindy and Nancy’s husband Jean Henry and their two daughters all sang. They all have such good singing voices. She was buried at the Rising Sun Cemetery. Kathleen was 98 last January. She will be missed by all of her family and friends.
