What an afternoon! Chillas Hall was packed out. Ann Brown won the rod and reel. Good for you, Peaches! Along with the friends and neighbors who were there, I looked up and in came my longtime friend and neighbor, Jesse Yur. It was really good to see her out and about again. We all enjoyed the food and the friendship.
Our thrift shop in Lanark Plaza will open at 8:30 a.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays. Bette and Mary will close up at noon. The proceeds from the sales will be divided between the Lanark Village Association, the Women’s Christian Circle and the Ladies Guild. They appreciate your clean, resalable items but please bring them during business hours. Thank you for your support.
Well, it’s here folks. The big weekend.
The yard sale on our beautiful golf course will open at 8 a.m. and close at 4 p.m. Friday, April 25 and Saturday, April 26. Stop by and look around, and one of the members of the Lanark Village Golf Club will be nearby to help you. See ya there!
On Saturday afternoon is the Kentucky Derby. I told you not to put that hat too far back in the closet because you would need it again soon. Here’s hoping you enjoy your mint julep.
Meantime, in beautiful downtown Carrabelle, the annual Riverfront Festival will be held Friday and Saturday. All along Marine Street will be arts and crafts booths, food booths and other interesting things. You can also purchase a duck ticket, or two, for the annual Duck Race on the Carrabelle River. Proceeds from the race go toward purchasing new uniforms for the high school band. Tickets require a donation of $5 per duck, and winner will receive $500 prize money. I am sure you won’t want to miss out on that.
When you entered Chillas Hall, did you happen to see the picture and deep saying on the west wall? It was painted by our very own Jaki Cichy. Jake and her husband, Eric, are in charge of house and grounds. Thanks a lot.
You bet we still have hamburgers and chips on Friday night, and pizza on Sunday; however, orders taken after 6 p.m. both nights, instead of 5 p.m. To order you to-go orders, call the Camp Gordon Johnston American Legion Post 82. Just dial 697-9998. Come on down and enjoy the evening with your friends and neighbors. Lots to do and enjoy.
on Saturday evening, you can dance the night away with music by deejay Jim. Just come on down to the Franklin County Senior Citizen Center. Door opens at 7 p.m. bring a snack to share, your beverage of choice, your dancing shoes and your main squeeze, and dance the night away.
Be kind to one another, check in on the sick and the housebound and remember, God is watching us from a distance.
Until next time, God bless America, our troops, and the poor, the homeless and the hungry.
