Last week I received a call from Lee Houser about the Houser- Stephens Family Reunion that was held July 18 at Ryan’s in Mt Vernon. The farthest traveled was Ed and Carol Biser of Buchannon, W. Va. and Ted and Judy Cameron of Evansville, Ind.
Carol and Ted are the children of Albert and Rhea Cameron long time residents of Ashley. Albert operated a radio shop and Rhea operated a beauty shop in her home for over fifty years. Delores Riley is the family historian and if you have anything to share about the family contact her at 618-345-4831.
Ashley United Methodist Church has Church at 8:30 every Sunday morning with Pastor Dennis Gambill.
I would like to plan another town wide yard sale for Oct 10 and I hope that Radom and Richview will join us. If you’re interested please let me know so I can get a list started.
Don’t forget to make a donation to the Ashley Fireworks Fund set up at Farmers and Merchants Bank.
