Summer drawing to end around Glen Lake

It seems like summer just started and it’s coming to an end. Some out-of-state kids have to start school next week or within a week and the athletes have been back on the field for at least two weeks.

I think it’s been a good summer, and for some it’s been a memorable summer. Our area seems to make good memories

I hope everyone enjoyed the Port Oneida Fair which was held Friday and Saturday. It’s always amazing to see the farmsteads, school house etc. Very interesting.

The Empire United Methodist Church annual Steak Fry will be held Sunday from 1-4 p.m. Enjoy a grilled steak, redskin potatoes, sweet corn, dessert and a beverage. Proceeds of a free will offering will support the church ministries. I certainly hope people are generous.

The Glen Arbor Summer Sidewalk Sale Days will be held Labor Day weekend. Starting Thursday, Aug. 31 and continuing through Labor Day Monday, Sept. 4. Good time to get good buys.

The Aug. 7 winner of the Empire Lions Club “Lucky 13” was Colleen Lubig. Congratulations.

The Glen arbor art Association readers theater will hold auditions for On Golden Pond on Sept. 6, at 7 p.m. Auditions will be held in the Glen Lake Community Reformed Church. The production offers roles for three men, three women and one teenage boy. An Ernest Thompson play, the script focuses on an aging couple who spend each summer at their home on a lake called Golden Pond. They are visited by your daughter with her fiancé and his son. The play explores the often turbulent relationship young woman share with her father along with the difficulties faced by couples in their twilight years.

Sounds like it’s pretty close to home for many people in our area. Should be fun to watch.

This week’s ditty: Around the curve lickety-split, beautiful car, wasn’t it.

Be careful, be kind, have fun. Go Patriotism.
