Bicentennial 2018

Before post offices and the Pony Express, local mail was brought up from Hamilton, by anyone who happened to be coming this way. It was left at a local trading post or mill where it stayed until the person who it was addressed to happened to stop by. Outgoing mail was just as risky. Postage stamps weren’t used until 1847 so cash for postage had to be sent with the letter until it made it to a regular post office.

Judy and Janet, Where Are You?

We spoke at the United Church of Christ’s Women’s Guild Thursday, April 14. These ladies are full of energy and ideas. Their church and community are very close to their hearts. They are preparing meals for the homeless shelter in Eaton and planning for their Mother’s Day Celebration which will be held at the TCN Community Center. Thank you ladies for asking us to stop by. What a great experience. Congratulations Dorothy Weaver who won the door prize.

In closing

Spring has arrived in Lewisburg. Everyone is mowing their yards and flowers are being planted. You’ve read of miracles, sharing, volunteering, and putting ourselves out there for our great community. “There is spirit; there is grace in our peaceful country place.”

Until next week …
