Craig — There wasn’t any potluck at Sunset Meadows Friday due to the Veterans of Foreign War (VFW) luncheon at the fairgrounds.
We made up for it Sunday at the Sunset Meadows annual picnic. There were about 200 people enjoying the food and entertainment by the “MUGS” and Mary Jo Brown.
The “Nifty Nineties” plaques were presented to 14 of our seniors: Al Schumacher, Dorothy Wiseman, Bertha Scott, Alek Kaye, Lottie Skidmore, Lusetta Dowling, Bertha Hinton, Bess Hall, Rosetta Harper, Sadie Talkington, Hazel Linzenmeyer, Marge Ponton and Berl Simon. As the saying goes, a good time was had by all.
I missed Geneva Owens and Bob Tomilson’s birthdays in August.
Lunch out this time was at the La Plaza July 7.
Margaret and Wayne Splitt celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary Aug. 12 with an open house.
Rose Poff of Sunset Meadows I, got a blue ribbon and the grand champion ribbon for her crocheted doily entered in the fair.
May McIntyre went to Steamboat Springs with her family to a cutting horse event. She took in the events at the fair also.
Seems like when the fair is over, autumn is suddenly here and I am in The Center of Things.
After two days of competition at the Colorado State High School Rodeo Association State Finals, riders and ropers from Moffat and Routt counties are making their way into the home stretch.
