I heard the beans and cornbread dinner went well at the community center. I wish I could have been there. There was a great turnout and Arvest Bank needs much appreciation.

There is a new pizza place in Lead Hill called The Well. Take a minute and stop by and welcome them.

Lead Hill graduation is at 4 p.m. today (Saturday), May 18.

Diamond City Volunteer Fire Department Ladies Auxiliary is having their annual garage sale from 8 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday, May 18. Stop by and find some treasures.

Make sure if you see Don and Wanda Riechers to wish them a Happy 64th wedding anniversary.

I hope you all have a wonderful week.
