We have had some hot days lately, very little rain and lots of wind and it is still Spring by the calendar. Wonder what Summer will be like!


People celebrating birthdays this coming week will be: Nadine Coakley, Gladys Robinson, Norma Jones, Kinzie Ptacnik, Paula Velander, Clark Jensen, Kara Williams and Austin Christensen. Celebrating anniversaries will be: Bob and Carol Teale, Ralph and Phyllis Steward and Brian and Deb Grant. Congratulations to all of them on their special days.


The Senior Diners met on Tuesday and enjoyed a meal of tater tot casserole and strawberry and banana salad. For entertainment they had “ Show and Share.” On Thursday they had pork tenderloin with gravy, mashed sweet potatoes and peaches for dessert. They had an “Elder Care Resource Handbook” presentation by Gayleen Bradley from 12:30 to 1 p.m.


Wednesday morning many friends, relatives and neighbors gathered at St. Mark’s Methodist Church in Lincoln to say farewell to Marsha Glover. She was a member of the Bennet Legion Post #280 Auxiliary for a number of years, and her husband, Bill, was the Post Commander. She will be missed by many.


Thursday Lauren and Marilyn Schreiner met James and Marilyn Schreiner and Gaylene Nutzman at a Lincoln restaurant for lunch. Good food and lots of family news catching up on.


Sunday noon Lauri and Brandon Earhart, Megan Mihulka, Gayleen Nutzman, Albert Grossman and Lauren and Marilyn Schreiner ate lunch at a Lincoln restaurant. The occasion was to celebrate Marilyn’s birthday. Again, lots of good food and family chatter.


Sunday will be Father’s Day and hopefully you will remember “Dad” in some special way. A phone call, a card or special meal – I am sure he will appreciate any or all of them.
