The eagle has landed! Judy was dismissed from the Acute Rehab Care Unit last Thursday after nearly seven weeks in the hospital. I was scared to death as we drove into our drive but we have managed to transport from the truck to the house and the house to the truck without any major incidences. It is so different when the therapists aren’t there to give support and advice. There is still a long road ahead, but, as a wise person once said, the longest journey begins with a single step. Thanks to all who sent cards, good wishes and, most importantly, prayers.

On Tuesday, July 22, we welcomed the newest Mayrer into the world. Isaac Mayrer weighed in at 8 lbs. 8 ounces. Proud parents are Craig and Heather Mayrer. Can you guess who the proud grandma is? Isaac shares his special day with baby George, the future King of England!
The annual Steak and Pork Chop Fry was held Saturday evening, July 19 at the TCN Community Center. Following the dinner, the FAMOUS auction takes place. It is so much fun watching folks bantering back and forth to throw in their bids. Would you believe that cookies, brownies, cakes and candies brought as much as $85 a plate? The famous cake brought $1600. This was much higher than last year’s auction. Around $7000 was raised at the Auction and Steak Fry. Thank you Lewisburg for standing behind this this event which raises money for the annual Derby Day fireworks.
Pay it forward
Judy would like to thank Josh and Jason Harry for helping her transport from the truck to the community center in order for her to attend the auction. When the bidders started to leave, Josh and Jason made sure that she was carefully transferred to the truck. After watching these boys grow up and start families of their own, it is a blessing to see them still giving back to the Village we call home. Thank you boys for all that you do for the Village.
In this day of unexpected happenings, it is always great to know that our Village stands together to accomplish our goals. There is spirit; there is grace in our peaceful country place. Until next week, we’ll see you Around the ‘Burg.
