We Are Community for the week of September 19th, 2022, by Joyce Steiner

We Are Community 115

Would like to remember Margaret Lunt Byers who passed on July 8th.  She raised four boys in Plymouth and worked at the drug store.  I remember her when she and her husband, Max Byers, did antique shows.  Max had a great pointed hat.  Margaret will certainly be missed by all who had the honor of knowing her.

New scam this week.  Got a call on my cell phone that someone at this number owed over $10,000 in taxes.  Said “not true” and hung up.  Out of curiosity, I called the number back and a recording told me that it was an unassigned number.

Went to Macomb on Saturday evening of last week for the balloon glow. Was accompanied by a huge crowd and it was difficult to get into Q lot to park.  When I got across the street, it was announced that there would not be a balloon glow because a weather front was expected.  Cars were still lined up in both directions trying to get into Q lot.  When the balloon glow does happen, it is are absolutely lovely. Sorry it had to be cancelled.

Went to Rushville to the Princess Theater on Sunday evening to see a movie which had been advertised on Facebook.  The movie was Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris.  It was cute.  Was delighted to find John and Joan Sullivan selling tickets and popcorn.  It is really nice to have an old-time theater in our area.

Hancock County Retired Teachers met a Rudy’s Restaurant in Augusta on Monday.  There was a great crowd in attendance.  We enjoyed chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans, jello salad and cake.  We also learned about local birds and their songs.

Last week I wrote about the importance of telling people that you love them.  One writer emailed me to tell me that he felt “one should only relate to close family with any expression of I love you”.  My thought on this is what about the 36 million people who live alone or what about those who have no family?

Adams was finally able to have their annual meeting in person again.  We enjoyed a pulled pork dinner with chips, green beans, a cookie and drink.  Thank you, Adams.  There were also booths with information.  I was interested to know that Adams now installs security systems.  Their price seemed very reasonable compared to what I paid for mine.  Also, there is no monthly fee involved.

Spent several days this week loading for 3rd Sunday Market.  Got there, set up and had some time to shop.  Had a good show for which I am very grateful.  Got loaded, had dinner at my favorite restaurant in Bloomington and headed home.  There was lightening to the north and west most all the way home.  It was not the severe type of lightening however.  As I pulled into the garage, it started to rain a bit and then my phone and weather radio went off telling of severe storms.  As I write this at 11:36 pm, my weather radio just went off again with Plymouth once again being in the path of a storm.

I do hope we all get some rain.  I hope that none of you have storm damage tonight.  I still hope that you will tell others that you are glad they are in your life.  Scatter Kindness.
