I visited Karen Nickell and Kathy Tucker Saturday morning at their craft booth at the Food Pantry site at Markland. I also visited Caudette Talbert’s produce stand and others. By the time I got to the Amish food booth. I only had 50 cents left and the doughnuts were 80 cents so Steve Turner from Patriot gave me 35 cents to get the delicious doughnut. Thanks, Steve. I really didn’t need it but it hit the spot. That site is really a good place to sell your handmade crafts and produce. I hope there are more there this Saturday. When I plan to visit again. I hope the Food Pantry finds a good place to relocate. It is a good thing for many people in Switzerland County as all of us may need help some time. Lew and Mary Gordon and the other volunteers have worked hard to keep it going. Maybe we could all add this project to our prayer lists.

Betty Hargrove said Linda Mae Jones is recovering at home and will probably go back to work in a couple of weeks. Jerry Jewell took Betty and Linda out for a nice dinner in Cincinnati Saturday.

They visited Roy and Bonnie’s campsite and had a really good lunch with them, the grandkids, Michelle and Randy McClure, Verle and Genevieve Truitt, Jeff, Becki, Levi and Mya Tucker from Pickneyville, Illinois and Willie, Melissa, Hanna and Brogan Wright from the Hanover, Indiana, area also enjoyed the lunch and visit.

Richard and Leona Adams went to the Dayton, Ohio, Air Force Base on business Friday. They also went to the Fairview Methodist Church ice cream social with Ted and Margaret Baker from Aurora Saturday and said it was really good.

The Switzerland County Extension Homemakers ladies enjoyed a picnic at the Tech Building last week. There were 39 members and six guests there. It was a luau and a lot of fun.

aFaye Lewis’ company was Linda Jones, Jean Sandidge, Evelyn Smith, Gertrude Voris and Glenda Sullivan. Faye went to Madison for a doctor appointment with Glenda Sullivan and Patty Chase and had a good visit with Sally Nay while there. They had lunch at Frisch’s and had a nice visit with Butch Rowlison. He said Martha is doing okay.

Get well prayers for Elizabeth Cole, Loretta Westrick, Sherry Romans and many more.

Sympathy to the Carole Seymour family and the Jeanette Weber family. They were lovely ladies and will be missed.
