MONUMENT - Tuesday, Sept. 14, brought 38 people to dine with us. Our menu was made up of Hawaiian chicken, seasoned rice, green salad and brownies.

We had a great feeling of sadness on Tuesday also. Jack Forrest passed away in Hermiston. He was always such a gentleman. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his wife, Darlene, and to his children and grandchildren.

A memorial will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 9, at the Monument Senior Center.

I guess Tuesday, Sept. 21, will be the last day for Kristina Uehlin's medical clinic. We shall miss her. Krissy will be home with her new baby girl, and is taking a job in Halfway. Someone will be here on Tuesday, Sept. 28, to trim our toenails.

They will be having a meeting about the food bank on Sept. 21.

Tony Ringering and Diane Geinger both won a certificate. I don't know who the other two winners were.

I will not put another team down, but just can't help bragging on our boys and girls. On Friday, Sept. 10, our football and volleyball teams each beat Prairie City's teams.

As far back as my school days, Prairie City was considered one of the toughest ball teams in the county and they still are. Mitchell and Monument both have to have "partners" to be able to field teams. I don't know the names of the individuals, but want to congratulate every one of our boys and girls.

Think everyone has just about finished their haying, in spite of the rotten weather.
