Katie Hancock turned 11 the 28th. Mom, Beth, treated her to a birthday slumber party Friday the 23rd. There were lots of pizza, cake and ice cream for her and friends, Adrianna Reed, Tori Knox, Ericka Taylor, Mary Beth Patterson, Josie Gannon and Lela Taylor. Due to an important ball game Saturday, the girls weren't allowed to stay up too late (nothing was said about after laying down!)
Another successful B-team tournament. A great turnout and games. An exciting year is up for next year's teams.
Congratulations to the Woodbury Lady Cubs and Woodland Warriors who got to eat the cake this year. The Lady Knights finished 2nd and the Knights placed 3rd.
Seems it was a record breaker for the Concession stand also. Nothing like getting a delicious hamburger and the extras.
Failed to get a "Juicy Tale" in last week's column but here is one for this week and it comes from P-pa:
Mr. Chalmus Campbell had a grandson who loved to vacation here in the summer time. At Bunt's Garage was an old motorcycle that needed some work. The grandson would come to the garage, get the cycle, take it up the hill, hop on it and roll down trying to get it started. With this being the hot summer time, the young man would have sweat dripping off following several tries of this. However, he wasn't giving up as this just might be the time it would start. While pushing past the garage on one of his umteemth times, Juicy hollered out, "She' a runnin' ole thang ain't she?"
Katherine Willard, Lady Allen and Josh Osborne all have a birthday on the 6th. Dwight Saddler's is the 7th as is Mary Beth Patterson's11th. Marsha Kraft, Tommy Joyce and Betty Jane Barrett celebrate the 8th. Travis Turney gets to spend one more year in his 20's on the 11th and celebrates the day with Justin Gilley and Joyce Dutton. Ending the week's wishes on the 12th are Tamisha Cantrell, Emily Sheerer and Charles Ritchey. Happy birthday to all of you.
Two big wedding anniversaries comes up this week and both ladies should have plenty of stars in their crowns On the 7th it will be Ruth Patrick who became Mrs. Marvin Davenport wa-a-a-a-y back in 1953 Then in 1966 on the 11th day of March, her sister, Betty Patrick became the bride of Terry Thomas. See? Didn't I tell you these ladies needed extra stars?? Happy anniversary to both couples and may you have many more.
