It may have been a cloudy day Wednesday, but for Rosemary Koenigstein, Sandy Epplin and Ora Mae Droege our hearts felt sunny as we enjoyed “Girl’s Day Out”. After minutes and minutes of discussion on various subjects the trio headed for Highland. Having a great tasting lunch at the Urban Farmhouse Restaurant and visiting several interesting businesses. On our way home, we stopped at Mannhard Hardware and Etc in Trenton, where, once again, we each purchased one of the same items. Couldn’t resist a bargain. Plans were made to again seek out another adventure next month.
