Library news: I am Phyllis Bardole the new librarian for Rippey. I live on a farm west of Rippey with my husband Roy. We farm with two of our sons Peter and Timothy and a grandson Schyler. I started at the library Oct. 1.

I was welcomed with an open house on Oct. 10. There was a good turnout of around 50 adults, youth, and children attending during the afternoon. I want to thank the board members, Dale Hanaman, Brenda Roberts, Nancy Burrow, Connie Neese and Jean Borgeson, as well as long time library supporter Maralynn Rinker for providing this opportunity for the community to gather in my honor. I hope you will come in so I can meet you. Our hours during October are  Monday through Friday, 2-5 pm.

The Rippey library Halloween costume party will be Wednesday, Oct. 31, at 4 pm. Come for the fun! There will be food, drink and goodies. Rippey mayor,  Dan Brubaker proclaimed trick-or-treat night to follow the party at 5. Hope to see you then. ~Phyllis Bardole, librarian
Phyllis Bardole and Jean Borgeson traveled to Carroll on Saturday, Oct. 13, to visit with Phyllis’s sister, alerie Ogren. We were able to enjoy their ice cream treats that were being served to the residents and their guests that afternoon. It was a nice day for a drive and a good visit with Valerie.

Connie Neese and Jean Borgeson were guests of Phyllis Bardole at the Al Welsh concert held at the Perry Performing Arts Center on Sunday afternoon, Oct. 14. The big band selections were wonderful. A touching moment was when the band played “Charlie my Boy” in honor of a long time member of the band, Charlie Radke, who passed away on Friday in Jefferson. Marlene Radebaugh of Rippey is a longtime member of band and a first cousin of Phyllis.

The Rippey Lions Club will meet on Thursday, October 18, 2018 in the Rippey United Methodist Church Fellowship Hall. The ladies of the church will serve the meal at 7:00 with the meeting and program to follow.
Ada Ross of Jefferson will present a program on the Pioneer Cemeteries of Greene County.
