About Town

"Love your neighbor as yourself" Matthew 22:39. Then Trust them, Thank them, and Value them. Let's make it a habit to practice the Golden Rule.

Several couples in our community have been celebrating that they have been married 50 or more years. Some whom I have visited with are Bob and Renee Woods -63 years, Orville and Rita Mousel-----, Dave and Diane Harrison--55 years and Louis and Lauretta Brown--50 years. We do congratulate them and many other couples who have had lasing marriages.
