When situations in life get us down, we sometimes want to quit. I’ve often heard the quote, “Winners never quit & quitters never win.” We can be certain this is a valid statement. That’s not to say that we might need to change our direction at times, but it is to say we should never, ever quit.

Stanley & Ora Mae Droege and Cindy McHenry of Columbia MO left last Monday for Williamsport PA to attend the Little League World Series. More on that story next week!

Gina Droege and her sisters, Veronica Liszewski & Stephanie Fahrner dined at 99 Hops Restaurant before attending the Dixie Chicks concert in St Louis on Wednesday evening.

A great turn out in Venedy Friday evening for the Pancreatic Cancer Benefit for Vernon Segelhorst & Family held at Seg’s Place. A huge Thank You to everyone who helped in any way and also to those who attended and did all the bidding on the auction items. It was a very successful night.
