Enjoy the summer!!

Night at the ballpark—does that not sound good. Yes, we are kind of back in the swing of summer fun. Got to watch Bo Smith and his teammates “Diamond Kings” on the field at Danner Park, what an amazing facility.

We want to say Thank You to all of our Mother June Sowder’s, friends and family for remembering her on her 95th Birthday. The cards and messages were so kind and thoughtful. We are so blessed to have such a dear lady to call Mom. We celebrated with a window birthday greeting at Morningside Center.

Hallie Jones is back at work on the Northwest Missouri Junior Golf Tour. She took 1st place with a low score of 81 at Veterans Memorial Golf Course in Cameron and also 1st, two weeks earlier at Shiloh Hills Golf Course in Platte City and lots more summer play to be had. Hallie is a great player to see and follow- -with her swing, her mannerism, her approach, her looks, quite the package. She is certainly up for the challenge.

Don’t forget to drop by Farmers Market each Saturday in downtown Chillicothe, west side of square. You will not be disappointed.
