Thursday and Friday evenings were especially impressive for it portrayed one big family reunion. It was like a scene from the past with neighbors greeting neighbors, royalty and escorts dressed in their finest, kids running about with their collected treasures, 4-H kids with their ribbons dangling from a back pocket and everyone just absolutely enjoying themselves. Now that's what good, wholesome country living is all about.

Today it is business as usual with harvest and school underway. Of course school and books are inseparable so don't forget to visit the library to check us out. There are many new books waiting to greet you. For you folks in the harvest field, if you have a cassette player available, there are several books on tape that will make the time pass more quickly. One combine driver in the community catches up on reading during this season. The article in the last Chronicle featuring Cindy Schnider was good news for the library as there are duplicate books in good condition that will be made available to the Hospital. We sincerely appreciate all the volunteers who helped during the fair. You know who you are and we are grateful.
