Greetings from Hickory Corner!
“Far up in the deep blue sky, Great white clouds are floating by; All the world is dressed in green; Many happy birds are seen, Roses bright and sunshine clear Show that lovely June is here.” – F.G. Sanders
Goodbye to May, and hello to June! Wow, the days are flying by. I can not believe this year will soon be half over. Time seems to move even faster when you are older. June brings a lot of summer fun and brings Flag Day on June 14 and Father’s Day on June 20. It also brings garden work for many. Remember not to get too hot working in your garden. Drink lots of water and take breaks.
I am enjoying a visit with my son Terry and his wife Jo Ellen. Jo and I had a day out of shopping and lunch already. It was nice going to a few places I have not been to in quite some time. Terry is staying busy working around his place as well as mine.
Members, do not forget there is a meeting at the HCC Center at 7 p.m. on Thursday, June 3.We would like to see a good turnout as the election of officers will be held that evening.
