PRAIRIE CITY - July 30, 2008. Ah, to me, summertme is nearly over when July ends. Means lots of work ahead with the garden stuff coming on and bugs trying to take it.
Early this morning Marvin, Ottis and Buzz prepared seven tables as Marvin knew the Monument bus was coming with Monument and Long Creek ladies and this is our birthday Wednesday. There were several July birthdays and they showed up.
Later we had 53 come to eat our meal of oven-fried chicken, corn, rolls, coleslaw, mashed potatoes, gravy and cakes - chocolate for most tables and angel food for the birthday tables. One meal was delivered.
Flag salute was led by Buzz Harris. The blessing was given by Billy Drinkwater.
The certificate winners were Billy Drinkwater for Prairie Drug and Hardware, Lyle McIvers for Huffman's Select and Vonnie Blasing for Main Street Hair Company.
Our servers were Dorothy Blasing, Vonnie Blasing, Helen Emmel and Carla Wright.
Lorna Askew and Barb Bryant brought LaVerne Matteson, Wally Wedde, Stacey McKinney, Margaret Sagert and Ruth Johns from the nursing home.
Is anyone willing to write the Prairie City senior news? At least for a month or two?
