Well, we got hit with some snow and more cold temperatures over the weekend but the forecast says MAYBE a warm up by the middle and end of the week. I AM READY!!!! I know it could be worse but this has been a long winter so far.


People celebrating birthdays this coming week will be: Gilbert Weyers, Randi (Coakley) Genuchi, Lyle Stolte, Kobe Jones, Carol Hall and Cameron Boell. Celebrating anniversaries will be M/M Duane Nohavec, Forrest and Carol Nisley and Alan and Barb Cochrane. Congratulations to all of them on their special day.


The Senior Diners met on Tuesday and enjoyed a meal of ham and beans with peaches for dessert. They played a “person, place or thing” game for entertainment at 1 p.m. They received a handout titled “Heart Health” from Denise Boyd, RD from Aging Partners. On Thursday they had a Turkey burger on a wheat bun for lunch with pineapple rings for dessert. They had a presentation by Jonathon Burlison, Training Specialist, SHIIP at 1 p.m. It was titled “ Fraud Bingo”.


Bennet lost another long time resident on Wednesday of last week. Donna Grant passed away. She and her husband, Clyde, had lived in Bennet for a long time and raised their two children, Brian and Lisa here. Clyde has been gone for several years. Family and friends gathered at the Bennet Community Church on Tuesday for her funeral services. Lunch was served by the Lamplighters Circle following the service.


“Ash Wednesday” services were held at the Bennet Community Church on Wednesday evening. Rev. Corder was in charge of the service. Next Sunday during the worship service the Sunday School kids will be singing with the Chapel Choir for two special songs. This should be a fun experience.


Did you receive a nice valentine from someone on Wednesday – maybe some flowers or a box of candy? Just a nice greeting is really all that is necessary to brighten someone’s day. Everyone is a “lover” on Valentine’s Day!
