Hello All,

What a day today, the Frye Mt. Tour with the horses and wagons...2 wagons full of people today to check out the sights on the Mtn. Paula Leavitt, and Ken Lamson with their teams and wagons. Thanks to all that attended. Paula hosted this to fund raise for the Troy Church Steeple Fund Restoration. Sorry that Clayton Larrabee was unable to attend. Nice to have Hartley Curtis and Roy Ward stop by with Bobby for a visit. It was wet, cold, and rainy but everyone managed to have a good time. Several people were not able to go for lack of room, sorry that happened. Thanks again !!!

Still working on gathering up pictures for the Calendar. If a photo is copied, sometimes it cannot be used...if it has been copied too many times. Dr. Shirley Bessey...came to see you Saturday evening, but no response from you, perhaps you were gone. Got your pictures for you.

Until Next week,

Get Well to all not feeling good. A flu-like bug is going around...It seems like it is always something to deal with. Guess it is the season now. Happy Birthday to those having a Birthday. Pay it forward, a nice gesture to do. Take care all from the little place we call KNOX....
