Another week gone by, here it is the beginning of June; schools out, summer programs such as baseball, softball, swimming, etc., are underway. Everything is so pretty and green, but it will all soon be turning brown with these 90 degree days. 

An anniversary party for Brayden Jueschke will be held in Colorado Springs on Saturday, June 9, to celebrate twenty-five years after receiving his heart transplant. Friends and family are all invited. Call (303) 823-5925 for directions to get there.

 

MEMORIAL DAY was Monday; a day we honored our loved ones, visited the cemeteries, thought of the days gone by, and paid tribute to our veterans who made the ultimate sacrifice to our country.  We read about the first World War Battle of Belleau Wood in June of 1918 (one hundred years ago), where the U.

Another week gone by. The Lyons High School girls lost their last two basketball games and will not be going to the state tournament. Clear Creek will be going for our division.
