On Friday, Feb. 10, we are decorating Valentine cookies. I will bake my secret recipe sugar cookies and we will use them. We will resume science experiments after Valentine’s Day, experimenting with flotation – “What makes it float?” The kids really enjoy the science projects. ~by Shawneene Kenan, librarian

BRR Ride is history.  This was the 40th year for this event and the Rippey Lions Club, the firemen and the church youth group all reported a successful day.  The riders and their followers are good supporters of the efforts of these organizations.

Jean Borgeson returned home from a two month visit at Chandler, AZ, in the home of her daughter and family, Blake and Linda Hampton, Sierra, Sophia and Jayden.  She was able to enjoy the Christmas events at school and church, as well as a little child care during the time when there was no school or early out days. Return trips are already being planned.

Sunday afternoon, Jean Borgeson visited in the home of Florence Siegenthaler in Jefferson.  Buddy and Debora Swanson of Vincent were also visiting Florence, as she was celebrating her 84th birthday. The women are cousins of the late Ralph Borgeson.
