Cora Stubblefield is much appreciated for taking notes for me; otherwise there would be a big blank spot here!

There was a nice crowd of 43 here,with 14 from Condon; Judy Cavender was here with her parents. A card was read from Jack Sweek, and I've just got to ask him, "Jack, did you stay home because of the menu?"

Mr. Hollen from Condon asked the blessing, and everyone enjoyed baked ham, scalloped potatoes, carrots and peas, and an Easter cake.

Certificate winners this week were Clyde Cavender, Touch of Country; Cora Stubblefield, Chester's Thriftway; Mike Trujillo, John Day Hardware; Jaunita Johnston won the free meal but not knowing when she would be back, she returned it. I heard they gave her the cash equivalence; when you win something in Monument, you jolly well better take it!

And you better start getting ready for the Family, Community, and Education Spring Fling! It will be on April 25 from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. They will have featured speakers, displays, a Dutch auction and a fabulous lunch. Look for their posters or get in touch with Sylvia Cockrell for more information.

Also the time is approaching for the Classic Car Show and Shine and Grasshopper Art Festival (now that's a mouthful!) on July 19. So start shining, do something artistic for the festival, or just prepare to go and eat, and watch and have a good time.
