Schools out forever! Okay, well, until August. Have a fun and safe summer!


Youth baseball/softball games are in full swing. Good luck to all the teams!


The local Memorial Day services are very inspirational, and well worth attending. Hope to see you there.



Palmyra Presbyterian GOPHERS

By Jackie Thomson-Bremer

The Palmyra Presbyterian GOPHERS (Gathering of Presbyterians Having Entertainment and Refreshments) spent their Sunday in the Elmwood area. They started at Dean and Judy’s Iris Patch.  Beautiful gardens!  Since Dean grew up in the Palmyra area, several conversations about people and “old times” were discussed.


The group ate a delicious lunch at The Quonset, formerly the roller skating rink. The group then traveled over to the Bess Streeter Aldrich home for a tour.


Bess Streeter Aldrich’s home has beautiful Quilts of Valor on display until Memorial Day weekend. It’s a wonderful home full of history. If you haven’t been there, you should take a tour. Some items were Bess’s and her family, some are reproductions, and some are “new” to the home. The upstairs bedrooms are themed after her books.
