Not a bad weekend; did have a little bit of rain, but much more is needed to get things perked up. Someone told me the weeds are even wilting in the garden.
Ted Lowden, Maple Terrace, has returned home from his six week motorcycle trip to Alaska with his two friends. Said it was an amazing experience. Traveled over 1800 miles through many states and many different types of weather; they met a lot of really nice folks along the way. Some places had no people, just long, long roads from one point to the next. He said he’s glad to finally be home. They kept everyone informed on Face Book of the whole journey; was quite interesting.
Next Civic meeting, Tuesday, July 19th, 6 p.m. at the Pavilion. Clean up at the Pavilion on Wednesday, July 20th, 10 a.m. Volunteers would be appreciated. Any help will be good.

HINT: “Know your potatoes. There are two types – mealy and waxy. Mealy potatoes (russets) cook up fluffy and light; use for baking, mashing and frying. Waxy potatoes (red, new) hold their shape when sliced, diced, fried, scalloped or boiled whole.” (Never knew that and will have to try and see if it’s true.)
Next 4-H Model Rocketry club meeting will be on Monday, the 18th, 2 p.m. at the Extension Office in Dushore.
