Rippey United Methodist Church – Join our church family and friends for the Fellowship Potluck on Sunday, March 11, following the worship. Bring a dish to share or just come to enjoy the food and fellowship!

Rippey Lions Club – The Rippey Lions Club shared a potluck meal at its recent meeting. During the business meeting, they reviewed BRR Ride plans and preparations and made plans for a breakfast at the Rippey United Methodist Church on April 7. The group also discussed donations to community work and other worthy causes.

The special guest for the meeting was Lions Club district governor Paul Thompson of Woodward. He shared information about the upcoming district convention in Fort Dodge and many of the important state, national and international projects that the Lions Club organization sponsors. This includes hurricane relief in the United States and abroad, the Leader Dog program and the Iowa Eye Bank. The next meeting will be on March 15 at 7 pm at the Rippey United Methodist Church with a guest presenting updated information on the Greene County Schools referendum with the vote on April 3. ~Nancy Hanaman reporting

Phyllis Gannon and Jean Borgeson enjoyed lunch at To-Jo’s last Wednesday. We hadn’t been able to join the regulars for some time and it was well worth the trip. Dianne Banning decided to do the same thing and she brought a friend. When Jean glanced at her, she thought she looked familiar. It didn’t take much longer to realize that it was Roberta Burkhart, of my home town of Woodward and I had babysat with her and her siblings when she was a baby. I guess you know, we had some catching up to do and a phone call to my sister Elayne Bice helped make that reunion special. When I took Phyllis home, we were sitting on her couch visiting some more and who should walk in unannounced but her daughter Monica Tenorio of Amarillo, TX, for a few day’s visit. What a surprise that was! Of course we talked until it was time to eat supper. Phyllis already had soup simmering, so we enjoyed a meal together before I finally left to go to choir. It ended up being a greater day than usual!
