July is jumping!

Summer flowers bloom at the Yoder Mennonite greenhouse on Highway 25 at Aquilla.
Summertime in the Heartland

As the sweltering heat of July presses us all to the sidewalk, life continues in the small town of Advance, Mo., now pop. 1301, according to the latest census. Whoopee, folks, that's 57 more residents than we had in 2000! Hey, it could be worse, ya know! Look at all the towns that have actually decreased--including St. Louis, from what I hear on the grape vine....

Okay, so it's been 101 around here lately, but we now have a cold wave of about 90, so we're really feeling the relief!

And here are the events that we know of in this little North Stoddard County town:

July 1......11:30--senior meal

July 5......7 p.m. library meeting

July 8......11:30-12:00--senior center meal

July 7......6 p.m. senior center board meeting

July 14.....7 p.m. Advance R-IV school board meeting

July 15.....11:30 senior meal

July 16.....9 a.m. Semo Mobile Food Bank Methodist Church (down the street under the school canopy, according to sources


July 22.....11:30 senior meal

July 25.....6:30 p.m. Stoddard Co. Historical meeting at Stars and Stripes Museum

July 29.....senior meal
