Breaking news in Wilmore-- Howard Monroe is climbing the walls and ready to get back in the grader. Mary is politely hold- ing him back. Good Luck. We have a new president and a new resident in rural Wilmore, both arrived on the same day. Congratulations to Kate and Tristan Unruh on the birth of baby girl Casey, a little over 7 pounds, on Tuesday, Nov. 8. I went to visit Bonnie Brown of Protection last week to show her a quilt I made from some of her cut out quilt pieces. She had pneumonia but looked pretty good for being 101 and ill. We had a good visit. Take care, Bonnie. The original owners of the Pruett house by the Federated Church in Wilmore were Si and Alzine Ray, and the house was built in 1896. That information was provided by Jim Booth. Thanks, Jim. We went to the musical at South Central High School last Friday and were again so sur- prised by the talent in such a small school. Music teacher and director Melanie Thompson is amazing in all the musical skills it must take to put on a produc- tion like that. Kudos to all -- great show. Tuesday is Rita Neilsen day in Wilmore. The residents and some librarians from Coldwater, headed by Debra Lane, have put together a Thanksgiving meal to show Rita how much we appre- ciate her and her efforts to meet all of our needs in the Wilmore Library. A basket of goodies was given to Rita Tuesday with a complete Thanksgiving Dinner. Thanks for all you do, Rita. Linda Hart came over and took a ride on the carousel this week, her first. Come again. Wilmore looked all decked out for Veterans Day with all of the flags up. It was a great way to say thank you to our veter- ans and we have quite a few in Wilmore. Thanks for your ser- vice. Bob Delaney and Debra Lane had birthdays this last week. Happy birthday, Bob and Debra. Ernie and I celebrate our 55th wedding anniversary on Friday. The scourge of lady beetles continues, but I am using our new lady beetle tool that sucks them offofthe ceiling and any- where else they are hiding. I want you to know that the pilot car came right down Main Street in Wilmore the other day, and I got to ride in it. We are not forgotten. I've decided it is bad journal- ism to moan and groan to all of you on how many bags of leaves I've raked, bagged and dumped, but it is about the same as last year, a lot! Jessie and Jamie, next to the post office, are the first to get Christmas lights up this year and they look beautiful. Thanks to Cole Lehl and his family for making toy donations in Wil- more. Our granddaughter, Sarah, became engaged over the week- end to Will Backus in Chicago. Wilmore by Christina Griffin We are so happy for them. Thanks for having me. I'll see you next week.
