Memorial Day was observed May 31 and Flag Day June 14 with Flags throughout the United Presbyterian Home in Washington’s campus and the community. The Flags were appreciated by all. Thank you to our local Optimist Club for assisting with this endeavor and to all those individuals who participated.
Summer Classic Tractor Parade took place June 5 coming through our campus, bringing back memories for many. Once again, we greatly appreciate our local community for including us.
Eaton Good Kettlecorn was on campus June 9 popping fresh popcorn for residents, employees and community members to purchase. Great popcorn enjoyed by all who attended.
Sweet Corn is finally planted. Thanks to Dick Wehr and Bob Crane for seed. The FFA boys initially tilled the garden and planted the first planting of corn. A big thank you to Barry Clough, FFA teacher at the High School, and his helpers. The final work crew was Dale Venzke, Mike McGuire, Jana Neiman, Joyce Letts and Randy Fehr. All the help made a large task go quite well. Looking forward to the bounty of harvest in July or early August.
Brownlee residents enjoyed making snacks by taking bananas and rolling them in melted chocolate and then rolling them in sprinkles or chopped nuts. This created the tasty treat enjoyed by all. The movie that was enjoyed with popcorn this week was Hairspray. Everyone is enjoying getting outside and reminiscing with friends and family.
