Here we are in October already. The Winter Sale is over, the sale room carpet has been shampooed and Jodie is setting up her Halloween Sale, which starts Oct. 15. Then on Nov. 1, Christmas sets up. It just don’t seem like summer can be over yet.

Joanne Corfman was the lucky winner of the gift basket last Friday.

We are still getting lots of fresh fruit thanks to Art Zink and other people. It’s so good we will wish we had it in a few months when the snow flies. Thanks to everyone.

Things have been pretty quiet and normal the last week. I hope it stays that way. We don’t need any more of that kind of excitement around the center. We are all getting too old for that. Well, I speak for myself anyway.

Congratulations to Gary and Anna Clark on their retirement and becoming new members.
