Hominy Ridge was the place to be Saturday evening for the birthday party for Joe Johnson, Tom Walker and Steve Jones-Ellard. Their years added up to 192. The rain did not spoil the party at the beautiful home of Steve and Sam. They just moved the delicious meal, homemade frozen yogurt and homemade gellato and lovely big birthday cake inside. Sam and Shirley Jones, Don and Collett Talbert, Jeff and Donna Faber, Errol and Jill Judy, Jeremy and Sarah Robinson, Kable and Trisha McAlpine, Bobby and Lynn Gibson, Andy and Janet Truitt, Steve and Teresa Lyons, Allan Bear, Michele Thompson, Michael Kruse, Carla Van Norstran, Rosemary Bovard and Angie Satterfield, Dale Thompson, Wayne Mizze, Justin Bacon, Patty Chase, Amanda Faber, Sam Jones-Ellard and maybe some I missed all enjoyed the party.

Happy June birthdays to Eddie Gregory, Mary Lou Bownan and in July, John Dale Lock.
Patty and Darrell Stoll from Washington, Indiana visited Bud and Betty Hargrove over the weekend. It was Peggy's birthday so Betty took her to Belterra for lunch Saturday and Davy Leap and Betty gave her a big party at the American Legion Saturday night with lots of good food and gifts and lots of friends and relatives. It was a good time.
We really liked Pat's "To the Point" about the Relay. We are still geting donations.
