Thank you, thank you, thank you!
There was another full house last Saturday to enjoy the good breakfast at the Lanark Village Boat Club. A thank-you to our faithful volunteers who set up, prepare, serve and clean up. We will do it again Saturday, August 16.
Meanwhile, at the Lanark Market, we all gathered to celebrate the third anniversary and the rain was still falling. Congratulations,
The Song Bird, Evelyn McAnally, was at the karaoke last Saturday night at Camp Gordon Johnston American Legion Post 82. She, along with Ann Merrell and others, kept the place jumping.
The rain last Sunday didn’t dampen too many spirits at the monthly covered dish at Chillas Hall. Lots of good food, friends and neighbors. Dessert, not so much, but we got over it.
It’s time again to thank all our faithful volunteers who work hard to make it happen. Also, thanks to the prisoners who keep the public lands and roadsides looking good.
Dog owners, before you leave the house, make sure you take a plastic bag and some paper towels and Fido on a leash. It’s the law. And another thing, when driving to pick up the mail, park in the big parking lot across the street from the post office, instead of the southbound lane of Heffernan.
Our next lunch at the Franklin County Senior Citizens Center will be Thursday, August 7. Serving begins at noon and I’m sure Sarge and his helpers will have a great meal prepared for us. See ya there!
The Honorable Cheryl Sanders, Bill Snyder and Mark Nobles will be at Chillas Hall this Sunday July 27 to meet you voters from District 2 and enjoy the Hobos Ice Cream.

On Saturday night, August 2, dancers and prancers will gather at the Franklin County Senior Citizens Center for the Over 50 Dance. Jim the DJ will get things spinning at 7 p.m. Bring a snack to share, your favorite beverage, your dancing shoes and your main squeeze and dance the night away. One o’clock, two o’clock, three o’clock, rock.
Another great lady of Lanark was called home July 16, to be with our Lord. Dorothy Duquiane and her late husband Lester were longtime snowbirds. They attended Sacred Heart of Jesus Church in Lanark.

Isn’t it great to see Bob Dietz walking around the Village again? Take care of yourself, Bob. We need you around here.
Talked to Jim and Mary Ann Bove last week. Jim is recovering well. They said to tell you hello. Both Bob and Jim want to thank you for all the cards and prayers.
Be kind to one another, check in on the sick and housebound and remember, God is watching us from a distance.
Until next time, God bless
