I took a trip to Biloxi, Mississippi with five others last week and we all enjoyed our visit. I will not mention any names to protect the innocent. Biloxi is a beautiful city along the gulf. One could still see the aftermath of hurricane Katrina. This area was hit hard. People sure were nice with their southern hospitality. I was surprised that one’s hotel room would not be cleaned on a daily basis due to lack of workers and the economy. The food prices were very pricey. Two eggs, a sausage patty, toast and coffee came to $24. It was nice to get back home to see how much the grass had grown in such a short amount of time.
Congratulations to all graduates! The Chrisman Area Community Club would like to thank all who supported the pancake/sausage breakfast and garage sales. Without the donation, the organization would not be able to provide scholarships to Chrisman graduates.
For the teenagers who are playing in the city park – a big ‘Thank You’ for putting the used water bottles and trash in the trash barrels. It sure makes the park look better with no litter. If everyone would do this and even clean up around town, it would make our community a nicer place to live.
Don’t forget about the community garden behind the library. Some volunteers mowed, painted and spruced up the area. If you would like a spot to plant flowers or vegetables, check with the librarians. Carla Haga will be planting flowers int eh flower pots around the square and gazebo. The community club is paying for the flowers.
If you want a Sesquicentennial Commemorative coin, you may want to purchase it now. We ordered six hundred coins and they are almost sold out. I am sure we will be ordering more. On a side note, the library board wants to make a recipe book for the 150th centennial, but are in need of recipes.
Here is the big secret: George and Carol Rogers have donated to the community club an autographed guitar signed by Brett Eldredge Tickets for a chance to win the guitar is $10. All proceeds will go to the community club. The drawing will be on Saturday, September 9th during the Sesquicentennial and the community club’s raffle. Tickets are available from Dan Moore. Thanks to George, Carol and Brett!
