Thank you, Mr. Bill! The cannon is finally here, and on display on the front lawn of Camp Gordon Johnston American Legion Post 82. Bill Miller has been trying for a long time to get the cannon for Post 82. Thanks to those who helped the cause.

Wish you could have joined at Chillas Hall last Sunday, April 21. The monthly covered dish was in memory of the late friend and neighbor Randy Harrison. There was a big crowd, hamburgers, hot dogs and all the side dishes and desserts. After lunch many filed over to the park for the Pine Cone Kickoff.

We had our final game of bingo for the season April 24. The season opener will be in October. See ya there!

Come on out and enjoy our annual Riverfront Festival this weekend. On Friday, April 26, gates open at 4 p.m. and on Saturday, April 27 at 10 a.m.  Many vendors, lots of food and much to enjoy.

Also on Saturday, members of the Lanark Golf Club will have their annual yard sale on the golf course from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Coffee and bottled water available.

Members of the Knights of Columbus of St. Elizabeth Ann Seaton Catholic Church will have a chicken and rib dinner with all the sides on Saturday, May 4 from 5 to 7 p.m. at the church in Medart, right off US 98. Your donation of $10 will fill your plate. Carry-outs available.

Mark your calendars for Saturday, May 25, when the Ladies Guild members of Sacred Heart of Jesus Catholic Church will have a yard sale. Donations are now being accepted. More on this later.

Be kind to one another and get a grip, tie a knot and hang on to Jesus.

Until next time, check in on the sick and housebound. God bless America, our troops, and the poor, homeless and hungry.
