Well, harvest is in full swing in our area. I hear the yields are very good in most places. Hope the good weather holds until it is all done, and everyone has a safe harvest.

A large crowd enjoyed the potluck supper, parade and fireworks display at Sheridan Lake July 4. The weather even cooperated, with no storms. A big thank you to everyone who helps put on the celebration.

Susan Greenfield's dad, Norm, spent Sunday through Wednesday last week helping her with some odd jobs around her house. He returned to Sterling Wednesday.

Well, I am finally back from all my travels. My son, Tom, and I flew to New Jersey June 19 to attend my granddaughter, Mikyla Scott's, high school graduation. There were over 700 students graduating, and it was held outside at the football field. It rained right up to time for the ceremony to take place, and then the sun broke through and was really nice the rest of the day. Of course, most of us were wet by then, but it didn't put a damper on the graduation. She will be enrolling in Montclair College for next fall. Congrats Ky!
