Well, the 69th Annual Venedy Homecoming has come and gone. After a challenging start with the tractor pull, it was completed. Hats off to the tractor pull crew, they did a great job with the rain they had to contend with. Great job done by the new picnic committee. Thanks for stepping up so Homecoming could continue. There was a very nice crowd for the evening.

Wonderful, wonderful Wednesday for Girl’s Day Out for Rosemary Koenigstein, Sandy Epplin and Ora Mae Droege to Kimmswick, MO. After making reservations at The Blue Owl, our first stop was at The Wild Grey Hare, where we made all our purchases for the day. We each purchased an item alike for all three of us, then each had several other purchases they were very happy with. Lunch was eaten at The Blue Owl Restaurant before more shops were explored without anymore purchases. We headed home right before rush hour traffic, after a very delightful day.
