Patty Peterson was the winner of the gift card given by the Arma Care Center who send the ladies to take blood pressure readings. For this we all give thanks. All senior citizens in this area are welcome to attend these meeting held once a month on the second Monday. Bring a covered dish to be served at noon each meeting day in the cottage.

Ernestine Berkey took Helen Sisney to the Arma, Kan., 66th VJ Homecoming Parade. They saw many people from Arcadia, including Kenny Cambers, alias "Cracker," from Liberal, Mo., and Jim Yates. They enjoyed the double cheeseburger lunch and took lunch home to Forrest Berkey.

P.S.: Computer problems Monday caused me to be short of news.
