It looks like the murals on the box car will have to wait until
next spring. The weather cooling down a lot.
The garden club is going full steam with the garden area.
They are in process of getting electricity to the area they are going
to have a Christmas tree. They planted a small one but have a large
one coming for what is to be a annual tree lighting ceremony. Their
plans include having the school choir 'help' with the singing.
Inviting the public , Serving hot chocolate and cookies. It will be
a good community get together.
Another house has been started at the Ridgeview Addition,
the street and utilities are in. One of the things I like is they
planted grass on the whole development, It will look nice next
spring. Instead of looking like a war zone on the empty lots.
