I hope everyone enjoyed the Swiss Wine Festival and the Vevay High School Alumni reunion. I missed the whole thing. Denny and Mary Lou Bowman and Glenda Sullivan took me to Baptist East Hospital in Louisville and stayed with me until my surgery was over. Dr. Villaneuva told them everything went very well. Nadine Swift, Lee Ann Bush, Glenda Sullivan, Denny and Mary Lou Bowman, Bonnie and Roy Duckworth, are all taking care of me while I’m recovering at home. Karen Wentworth and Margie Ford brought a great meal from their Sunday cookout. Charles and Alberta Pickett visited right after the parade. Thanks to everyone for the cards, flowers, phone calls, all the good food and most of all for the prayers that got me through the surgery without much pain or fear. My other company was Gertrude Voris, Junior Lloyd, Dolores Robinson and grandson Kameron, Judy Lozier, Dale and Danile Thompson, Emily Bush, Braxton May, Eddie Gregory – he took care of my livestock (two calico cats). Jean Rose visited this morning and said Ed Trinkle and Katie were in from Virginia to visit the Vevay Alumni and the festival. They went to the Patriot Baptist Church Sunday. Janice Cook was with them to hear their cousin, Mike Jones. Jeanette Boling brought her friends from Brazil, Indiana, to Patriot Baptist Church. Jean said they had a big attendance.

The Florence Flowers Home Economics ladies met at the Florence Church last Monday for a good meeting. Janet and Richard Sullivan of Westport visited Margie Whitham, Jeanette Knaus and Glenda Sullivan.

Faye Lewis’ company was Ron and Jean Sandidge, Stella Bennett, Linda Bolden, Mike and Joanna Sawalich, Tim, Annette, Abby, Parker and Lexie Deno, Evelyn Smith, Nora Gross and Glenda Sullivan.

Stella Bennett’s company was Stacey and Matt Harsh and boys, Margie Ford, Karen Wentworth, Ryan Sullivan, Blake Althoff and Sarah Tolbert.

Margaret Lee Weidmann and Lorraine Brown went to Carrollton on business Tuesday. Cheryl Messmore spent the weekend with Margaret Lee. Other company was Gail Ann Clements, Janice Ramsey, Keith Brown, Kay O’Neal, Ryan Brown, Ani Bridges, Brandon Messmore, Betty Hargrove, Randy and Lorraine Brown, Kevin Scudder, Lois and Ronnie Ackerman, Dutchie Scholle, Lisa Asher and Linda Harrell.

I dont have much Swiss Wine Festival or VHS Alumni reunion news. Call if you want it in next week.

Get well prayers for Charles Pickett, Gary Wentworth, Juanita Baer, Jim Welch, Patty Chase, Linda Scott, Donna Raisor, Betty Lucas, Russell McSwain.

Our sympathy to the families of Paul Vernon Roberts, Garnet Keith and Keith Oeffinger.
