One Year Ago

The Green Thumb Garden Club traveled to Van Wert for their June meeting. Louise Hartwig gave a tour of her home garden explaining how she came to collect such a vast amount of beautiful plants. Louise had spoken to the club last year about the Van Wert Children’s Garden which she helps to maintain and promote.

I think even the ducks are sick of this weather; and I suppose now having said that we’ll not get another drop the whole rest of the summer. This has sure saved on having to water our gardens and flower beds so much though. The rabbits have enjoyed my small garden but I do anticipate having some nice red tomatoes before too long and my grandson might just get a pumpkin or two this year as well. Everything is growing!

Also growing is our list of volunteers. We recently added a few more good, kind, friendly people; yet, we still would certainly always welcome more. If there’s any capacity you can help with, be it a sorter, a cashier, a bagger or any or all capacities, please contact the Thrift Shop’s Volunteer Co-ordinator Barb Haggard at 419-692-2942. Even if you feel you can’t work a whole shift, please consider working a half shift and have a friend, daughter, son or spouse work the other half — we’re flexible like that. Some volunteers request that a friend work with them on the same shift and then they go out to dinner afterwards — that’s fun.

Dancers perform at Kings Island, celebrate end of year

The Dancer By Gina dancers have been busy this year. Eighty dancers recently performed a jazzed-up Charleston routine for a Cleveland Cavaliers halftime entertainment show. It was the studio’s eighth time being awarded the halftime slot. The competition dancers, pictured above, also performed June 20 at Kings Island. The dancers competed this season in Dayton and Columbus, winning the Odyssey Award (for Most Entertaining) at both competitions,  the Apogee Award (for highest scoring number) at Starquest Performing Arts, Top Studio at Applause Talent and Choreography Awards.  The competition numbers received Platinum and High Gold ratings, including nine first Overall and five second Overall awards in various divisions. Two numbers were selected to attend the All-Star Intensive in New York City. The studio celebrated the year with a pool party for all dance and tumbling students June 17 at the Delphos Pool.

CHICAGO (AP) — Good thing she doesn’t need a password to get into heaven. That’s what Donna Spinner often mutters when she tries to remember the growing list of letter-number-and-symbol codes she’s had to create to access her various online accounts.

“At my age, it just gets too confusing,” says the 72-year-old grandmother who lives outside Decatur, Illinois.

But this is far from just a senior moment. Frustration over passwords is as common across the age brackets as the little reminder notes on which people often write them.
