Congratulations to Maybell School for winning first place in the Homecoming Parade Friday. The children rode atop the Maybell fire truck wearing different kinds of hats with a big sign on each side of the truck saying "Maybell School says hats off to the millennium." Good job to all the Maybell kids and staff for winning first in their division.
The Maybell children again have a once-in-a-lifetime chance this week. All the Maybell children will attend the Colorado Children's Choir in Craig Tuesday. The Colorado Children's Choir is a world-famous children's choir. School age children audition yearly for the chance to tour with this choir. Thanks to the Colorado Council for the Arts, the Colorado Children's Choir is in Craig and has graciously asked the Maybell third- and fourth-grade children to sing with them at its community concert at 7 p.m. Wednesday at the high school. Everyone is invited to see the Maybell children perform along with the Colorado Children's Choir.
The Maybell children will have scarecrow day at 1:30 p.m. Oct. 28. All children are to dress like scarecrows. They will play games and walking in the Maybell scarecrow parade along with a lot of eating. All children any ages in Maybell are invited.
Women's Club met Tuesday. The committees for the library and cemetery all spoke on up-to-date improvements. The Women's Club would like to see if anyone in the Maybell community has a mangle to be used for the Women's Club. Twenty-eight table cloths are used for the dinner plays each year. Each one needs to be ironed and a mangle would be helpful. If anyone would like to donate any stamps for the Maybell Gazette call Shari Johnson. After the meeting was adjourned the women had refreshments brought by Linda McCabe and Rosemary Hertzog.
The Women's Club book sale was a success. The Women's Club had such good luck it will be selling the remaining books at an ongoing book sale during library hours and each Saturday through October.
The Maybell 4-H club is collecting deer and elk hides. There are barrels in the Maybell Park for the hides only. The Rustlers would be appreciative if anyone would donate hides after a hunt. If you can't make it into town and need hides picked up, give Lance Poole a call.
The Maybell Library is still getting more books in each day. The library has a scanner to use along with a copier, fax and Internet. The Maybell Library has many magazines and newspapers. More people are coming to the library to see the changes going on with books, puzzles, games and videos, and checking them out everyday.
The Teddy Bear story time hour is going well. Each Wednesday from 11:30 p.m. to noon there is a story and craft or game for children ages 2-6. Everyone is welcome. There is a story time for the older children from 2:45 p.m. to 3:15 p.m. each Wednesday for ages 6-12. Home schoolers welcome.
