Hello to All,

We have got a new format for our news now. The layout is different. I have trying to get on my internet, kept booting on and off today. So would type and lose into cyberspace. Poof and gone! Am back, so to enjoy this sunny day.

I am thrilled that we are getting culverts replaced and our road fixed up. The Works crew has been busy. This has been a long time coming.

MVHS graduation

Many of us attended the graduation on June 13. A beautiful day for the outside occasion. Congrats to all the graduates. And to Kayden and Jacie, we are so proud of you both. Kayden and Gabby will go to USM and Jacie to UMF. There was 17 of us that went to Mammie’s for lunch afterwards. They kept coming in. We stayed longer than expected, but the waitress was nice about it. We all had a good time, talking and visiting together.
