BALDWIN — Hello from Baldwin,

How is everyone’s week going? I hope everyone is having a great one. Well the weather has improved a lot. I have heard the lawn mowers buzzing since the rain stopped for a few of days. Everyone is trying to get their yard mowed and trimmed up before the next rain. Gardeners are out working diligently working the grounds that have finally dried enough to plant things. It has been very difficult on the gardeners with all of the rain to get their gardens planted. Oh, won’t those fresh vegetables taste good.

Marcum’s Farms are supposed to have strawberries and be set up on Saturday at the Madison County Farmer’s Market in Lowe’s Parking Lot.  There maybe a couple of other people set up. So if you are in that area, stop by and get you some of the strawberries that Marcum’s Farm are so well known for. Hopefully other vendors will be coming soon.

Happy birthday wishes go out next week to Melissa Sandusky, Monday; Terra Cheeks, Tuesday, my uncle Homer Curry will be celebrating his 93rd birthday on Wednesday; Jerome Curry, Roshelle Ponziano and Miss Caroline Damron, Thursday; Wayne Perkins, Bill Winter and Nicholas Middleton, Friday. I hope you all have very happy birthdays and many more happy ones to come.

Happy anniversary wishes go out next week to Kendal and Eileen Davis, Sunday; Robert and Bethany Smith, Wednesday; and Fran and Amanda Spalding, Saturday.  I hope that these couples have very happy anniversaries and many more happy ones to come.

The Spring Gathering at Kirksville is Saturday!! My sisters, Myra Isbell and Nelda Smith and Myself will be there to set up our crafts to sell along with lots of other crafters and vendors. The day will began at 9 a.m. and continue until 2 p.m.  There will also be a concession so stop by and shop and have a bite to eat. Hope to see you there.

Well, I guess that is all for now, let me know if you hear any news, just give me a call at 623-4579 or e-mail me at
