Lanark News April 1, 2014: Honesty is still the best policy

Published: Wednesday, April 2, 2014 at 02:56 PM.

Let’s hear it for the fine helpful folks at our IGA. One of our visitors had purchased a colorful necklace at one of the gift shops. She and a friend then went to do some shopping. When they had put the groceries in the car, she reached up and the necklace was gone. She went in and told the checker that she had lost the necklace and gave her a phone number. When the visitors got home, the checker called to say they had found the necklace. One of the guys colleting carts out on the lot found it. Thank you very much again.

Last Saturday turned out nice and sunny, after all. There was a good crowd at the quilt show. Didn’t win the quilt again this year, but congratulations go to Kay Bowman. Also had one of those good hot dogs outside.

There was also a good crowd at the Spring Fling at the Carrabelle United Methodist Church . I talked to my first boss in Franklin County , Vivian Armistead, and she said things went very well. She was there to help out.

Your breakfast will be ready at Chillas Hall this Saturday, April 5. Members of the Lanark Village Golf Club will prepare and serve. Pancakes/French toast, bacon/sausage, eggs, grits, juice and coffee and still only $5 donation. Can’t beat that with a stick.

Saturday is also Tonya’s Hope Day at Camp Gordon Johnston American Legion Post 82. Huge yard sale begins at 9 a.m. with a memorial service at noon. This will be followed by lunch with Thomas Lee Brannan’s famous pig roast with all the fixings. Donation for lunch is $10. See ya there! Proceeds from Tonya’s Hope help people in Franklin County being treated for cancer.

Later on Saturday night, you can dance the night away at the Franklin County Senior Citizens Center in Carrabelle. Jim the DJ will provide the music. Bring a snack to share, your beverage of choice, your dancing shoes and your main squeeze. Dance starts at 7 p.m. Hokey Pokey!
