Banner School Board Doing That Zoom Thing


May 7, 2020

Good morning Banner County, friends near and far. We still are under some pretty tight restrictions, but are able to sneak in a few family interactions.

I am extremely lucky on that point because all but two of my grandkids and their parents recently were able to visit us for a couple of days. It was really great.

Even though we had quite a lot of rain, we were still able to enjoy some sunshine, cook outs, and  laughter, lots of laughter. That is always a pleasure but especially right now.

Business for this week consists of the Banner County School board regular monthly meeting.Held virtually at 7 p.m. on Monday, May 11. If you do not have the Zoom address for the meeting, call the school at 436-7152.

Birthdays this week include: Carissa Marler, Connor Cochran, Wyatt Lind, Tatum Revelle, Jacob Knaub, Jeri Revelle, Hallie Cochran, Kacia Farro, Rick Lind, Todd Baker and Karin Jones. Happy Happy Birthday!

Anniversary couple of the week is Mr. & Mrs. Carl Gillbert, congratulations!

A Story For

Mother’s Day

Have you ever heard the story of the young man who lived  about 200 miles away from his mom?

Well, Mother’s Day was but a few days away and he decided to send her some flowers through the local florist shop.

As he was leaving, he couldn’t help but noticing a little  girl sitting on the curb crying. He stopped and asked her what was wrong. She told him that she had wanted to buy her mom a red rose for Mother’s Day but didn’t have enough money.

“Well, come on,” he replied,”I will buy a rose for you to give to her.”

He then offered her a ride home. The directions she gave him led them to a nearby cemetery, where the little girl laid the rose on a freshly dug grave.

After leaving the cemetery, the young man felt compelled to return to the flower shop. He cancelled his earlier order, bought a beautiful bouquet and hand delivered it himself.

Here is wishing you a Happy Mother’s Day, May 10, and remember to vote on May 12!

This little poem is Untitled:

Here’s wishing you a Mother’s Day that’s filled with every pleasure.

And a future that’s as happy

As the memories you treasure!

Until next time, take care.
