Not too much new in old MG this week. Spring is rolling along and end of year school activities are at hand. Next week I’ll list the upcoming events again as a reminder but for now I’ll ask that you keep in mind Miller Grove Cemetery’s annual homecoming that will be Saturday, May 6. The service will begin at 10:30 am – hope to see you there.
Tuesday was a busy day for me. I took a day off of work and went to have lunch with my niece and nephew at their school for my niece’s 8th birthday. After that I was able to work in the garden and then go to the MG Elementary’s Open House. I was glad to see the halls and classrooms filled with parents and students who were meeting with their teachers and showing off the things they have been working on during class. I was even able to meet a few of the newer teachers that I had not been introduced to at the time that they were hired. It also felt nice to stroll down the new building that so many teachers and parents are proud to have. I know in talking with two teachers in particular, Marisela Carpenter and Ginger McCreight, they expressed how much they have enjoyed the new elementary addition. While I was there I made a stop by the library to check out the shelving that was built by one of the school’s maintenance men that had been a cabinet maker. They shelving looked incredible and to my surprise there was enough room for the library to grow and add many more books to the collection for several more years to come.
Happy Birthday to Aaron Baylus & Billy Wren on May 2; Johnny Burns, Ray Sparks, & Lindsey (Smith) Beaver on May 3; Kyle Smith, Angela (Pitts) Gress, & Tara (Russell) Spencer on May 5; and Dianne (Sparks) Wicks on May 6.
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].
