News in and around Rippey:   

Bye Bye Blues meet – Doris Brown hosted the members of Bye Bye Blues and their guests Thursday, Aug. 20.  The group enjoyed visiting and reminiscing during the morning brunch.  Attending were Marilyn Pentico and her two great-granddaughters and a grandson, Lois McDowell, Donna Ridinour and Midge Vannatta of Perry, Eleanor Alex, Meladee Graven and Kyle Graven of Grand Junction, and Jean Borgeson of Rippey.  

Roy and Phyllis Bardole and Aden Bardole left Aug. 14 for a weekend with the Jason Bardoles of Wauwatosa, WI. Aden and Levi and Kate play well together, so Aden thought it would be good to go to their house.  Most of the weekend was spent building a tree house in the tree above the play set.  It actually attaches to the fort.  It was built with safety in mind, so it took a lot of thought to get that done. While waiting for the project to proceed, Levi and Aden played games and went to the school playground, and Allison took them and Kate to play laser yag.  Chase is quite mobile now so it kept everyone busy keeping up with him.  The tree house was complete by the afternoon, so Aden was able to try it out before the Iowans headed home.  It was a fun weekend.

Jean Borgeson joined her sister Elayne Bice of Johnston and their cousin Ann Siglin of Hollis, NH, for a recent lunch date.  Ann is in the area visiting her mother Virginia Siglin of Waukee for a few weeks.
