Spooner Advocate Column- June 13, 2013
Hello there neighbor- What great weather we had on Saturday! It was really a nice trip up to Ashland as Mikhaila had to take her ACT test at Northland College. It was fun just to go up and see the lovely town of Ashland. I got a bunch of homework done at the library while she was taking her test. Afterwards we walked around the Northland College Campus and just relaxed as it has been a very busy couple of weeks. I would like to congratulate all the Seniors that are now done with high school and moving on to college, or careers. Whatever you have planned for your future I wish the very best for you! All the other young people that are out of school please have a safe and fun summer. Enjoy spending time with family and friends. We all know summer goes by really fast, so enjoy! Happy Birthday to all those of you that have June birthdays. I hope you enjoy the sun and all the beautiful flowers, the flowering trees. Have a beautiful day and we love you! If there are people out there that have extra plants that they started and would like to share with others. Or would like to grow some plants for a garden please contact me. I will have some extra plants and if I don't, I know others that do have seeds or plants. Please share your extras with others and lets see what we all can grow! Mary Ann if you are resing this you are on my list to call- I apologize as I have been in the Bayfield and Ashland area working. I do appreciate you calling me and look forward to talking to you.
