Plymouth Area News for the week of April 4th, 2016

Plymouth Pride will be hosting their Second Saturday Breakfast on April 9th from 7-10 am at the Community Center located on the east side of the Plymouth Square.  The menu will include sausage gravy and biscuits, meat, eggs, potatoes, pancakes, fresh fruit, coffee cake and beverages.  A suggested donation of 5 dollars will be used to help repair the roof and other needs of the building.  Please plan to attend and support the Community Center.
The Plymouth Old Settlers Committee will be hosting a matador supper on Saturday, April 16th from 4-7 pm at the PCCC.  The menu will consist of matadors, dessert and beverage for a cost of 7 dollars.  Carry outs will also be available.
Tuesday we celebrated Ed Newton’s birthday by eating out at the Hotel Nauvoo.  The food was wonderful as usual.  Dot Burdett’s 96th birthday was April 1st.  I baked her an angel food cake and took it to her early on Friday so that she could share it with people who dropped by for her birthday.
Wednesday the McCutchan family held the visitation for Chuck McCutchan at the Tri County golf Course.  I thought it was a great idea.  His casket was placed on the golf course and there was a large mushroom near the casket.  One’s last earthly outing should be at a place they loved.
I left the visitation early so that I could drive to Carthage and attend a meeting at the hospital on dementia.  When I got to the hospital I was informed that the meeting was cancelled.  Seems to me like they should have taken names and numbers when we made reservations for the meeting so that we could have been notified if the meeting was not going to be held.  Wasted trip on a bad weather evening.
We had 9 for Bible study on Thursday morning.  It was the last session of the current study.  Joyce Steiner fixed lunch for those present.
Have two friends in the hospital.  Please keep Lee Hamm and Elaine Worman in your thoughts and prayers.  Understand that Elaine had a “nice” helicopter ride to Springfield.
Have had B&B guests for two evenings.  They were here to attend the Foote funeral in Macomb.
Sunday I attended the COIPS Board meeting in Lostant.  Good food, good friends and good meeting.  Thanks to Ray and Kathy Goodell for letting me hitch a ride.  Sorry to miss church.
Have a good week.  Pray for those who are ill and others in need of prayer.  Scatter Kindness.
