Saturday, Oct. 30, the grange had a Mexican dinner. If you weren't there, you missed a very good meal. Your loss became my gain. We took some of it home and have been enjoying it for several meals. No, I am not a lover of Mexican food.

Amos Cardwell, Marvin Casebeer, Jim Howard and Buzz Harris prepared the six tables for today. Later Buzz delivered only four meals. Eula Thompson greeted 34 people Buzz led the flag salute and Billy Drinkwater gave the blessing.

It was announced that if any seniors wanted firewood to call (541) 820-3568.

The annual veteran potluck dinner Nov. 11 will be at the grange hall at 6 p.m.

Ruth Johns read an article about a woman borrowing money to travel.

American Legion Auxiliary ladies, Louise LaBaugh, Vivian Rookstool and Pam Howard served fried fish, rolls, cooked carrots, coleslaw, mashed potatoes and light gravy, bread pudding with a sauce to pour over, all prepared by Gene and Edna Jennings.

From the Blue Mountain Nursing Home: Pam Emery, Mildred Benson, Lola Crabtree and Rita Morris were brought by Lorna Askew and Jonie Jones.

Gift certificate winners were: Mort's Barber Shop, Pete Barrietua; Prairie Drug and Hardware, Eula Thompson; and Lunch Box Deli, Marge Reddekopp.

Jim H., Billy D., Ottis G., Marvin C., Cleo Dunten, Winnie Smith and Barbara Reynolds cleaned up the dining area while Eula, the three servers, Buzz and I worked in the kitchen.

Looks like our senior snowbirds, or most of, have gone south for the winter. They are missing out on light snow some mornings and our cold early mornings. It has been down to the low teens lately, but now there are sunny days this week.
