Wow! We have so much information to share I have to get on the ball. Our Granddaughter Ebony Bicknese, from Idaho, has been staying with us since the 9th of June, and we are having a ball. She is so much fun and so helpful. We work then we play. It has worked well, as she sleep really well at night....smile! She gets to stay until the 23rd of July.
We welcome Nancy Robinson from California, back to Frankfort for a visit. She is entertaining all of us with her great stories and wonderful humor.
The Frankfort Ball Diamond is getting a lot of use this summer. Several people have been keeping the grounds maintained, trash picked up and lawns mowed. TJ Campbell is sort of the head honcho, keeping the games going and making sure each team is able to play at a certain time. They have had a fund raiser for the new "Consession Stand" and are still welcoming donations.
The wedding for Lisa Johnson, daughter of Alan and Mickie Johnson and Mark Smith, son of Carol and Arven Smith will be Saturday, June 23rd in Watertown, with a reception following. We are looking forward to going and spending the weekend celebrating.
BASEC, Grow Spink, and Grow South Dakota (fna:NESDCAP) are working with the community to clear several condemed or falling down properties in Frankfort. They would like to make the lots available for purchase, for those who would like to build a home here. If you would be interested please contact Craig Johnson (Grow Spink) Redfield, and or Lynda Marzahn, City Hall, Frankfort.
June 9th/10th, Marilyn Mayer, Marian Starr, Gerry Robinson and Penny Robinson spent the weekend on a bus tour to MN. They were entertained at the Chanhassen Dinner Theater seeing the play "Xanadu." On Sunday they were taken to the "Twins" ball game. So sad that they lost 8-2, but everyone had a wonderful time meeting all of the other people on the trip, and I am sure laughing and telling stories. It was too bad that Marian Starr went with a broken arm and finger. She was determined to go.
This brings me to tell you that the MT Hope Cemetery in Frankfort is looking beautiful ! thanks to Marian Starr, her son Ron Starr and Nancy Hudson. Those who lent their equipment and tools that made the job easier...thank you. I am sure there are others who have helped trim trees, removed trees and literally cleaned up the grounds, so thanks to all of you. The next project is to repair many of the stones that have fallen or are in bad shape. Hopefully there will be a work crew in place this summer.
Please let me know if you have news to share and I will be glad to get it in the paper.
Thanks and God bless.
