August 7th Joan Leyden was hostess to eleven members and one guest to Tuesday Coffee club. Members met at The Bistro for a 11:30 luncheon.
Three tables were set up in the Game Room making it enjoyable to share and visit with our group.
Charlotte Magdefrau brought a pretty get well card she had made and members signed it with a greeting for one of our members unable to attend. Cucumbers were brought to share with the gardens being plentiful this season. Tomatoes seemed to be a favorite of several members as well as sweet corn.
A bit of history from Washington County and The Courthouse I found interesting in one of my Dad?s books that I now have, states that in 185l Lyman Whitcomb was paid $10.00 to make the treasurer?s desk.
Nathan Davis $7.50 for 5 cords of wood for heating. Presley Figgins, $1.50 for assisting to bring J. W. Faye to jail and hire of 2 horses for the same.
J. C. McClellan was paid $8.25 for iron stove and pipe and other furniture for the jail David P. Sturges, $22.65 for seats for court room and other repairs about the court house. Building of The Court House was completed in 1847. I found this interesting as the needs now on our courthouse are being discussed.
Dorothy Weber was hostess to Tuesday Coffee Club on September 4th . Members gathered at The Pizza Ranch for a tasty lunch of salad, pizza, chicken and ice cream.
The menu offers something for everyone and a nice place to visit as well. Nine members were in attendance for the meeting and a time of visiting.
One of our members just returned from a trip to Colorado to visit family and do some sight-seeing with wonderful weather while she was there. Another just finishing a move to their new home told about all the beautiful up-dates and the good helpers they had to complete the move.
