Not quite as much news to report this week as the last few weeks – they were chock-full of happenings in the Grove. I do know the rains we have had lately have been beneficial to gardens in the area. Looks like we are in for another round of rain next week but hopefully not the hail we received with the last storm.
Everyone is invited to the Ground Breaking Ceremony for Miller Grove’s new Elementary addition. The ceremony will be held Thursday, Apr. 21, at noon. State Representative Dan Flynn will be on hand for the event as well as other local leaders, the chamber of commerce, school officials and trustees. Cake to serve 200 has also been ordered. We hope that there will be many from the community that come out to take part in the ceremony and welcome the new addition to our growing campus.
Tuesday, Apr. 12, was Open House at Miller Grove Elementary. I stopped by and took a quick walk through the classrooms. It was good to see several people that I used to work with and to see all of the things the students had on display. There were quite a few people when I was there (around 6:00) and I’m sure more showed up as the night went on.
My cousin, Hunter Darrow, is now home from the Marine Corps – permanently. He returned from Hawaii on Monday, Apr. 11, and is here to stay. He and his wife, Tiffney, are excited that he is back home.
Happy Birthday this week to Stephanie (Horton) Bullard on Apr. 17, Zach Crispin & Chandra Lee on Apr. 19, and Quinten Stovall on Apr. 21. One birthday that I missed last week was that of my friend Deanna Hasten. Her birthday was Apr. 12. Happy Birthday Deanna and many more to come!
As you travel the highways and byways don’t forget that all roads lead back home and back to Miller Grove. Please send me any newsworthy information. My email address is [email protected].
