CORRESPONDENTS: Ammeter news: Cake bakers are at it again

Contributing writer

Michele Boese came to LaVonne’s Wednesday morning and we decorated cakes for Legacy Park.

B.J. and I went to Peabody Thursday afternoon to deliver cakes to Legacy Park. We visited Donna Robb, Emma Shaw, and Dorothy Whistler.

We had terrible lightning and a thunderstorm Friday. Lightning struck a transformer in my yard so we had to use a kerosene lamp for light. B.J. could not believe I used to study with those. Electricity was restored by midnight. We sure need to appreciate our Flint Hills REA workers.

I went to Burns Saturday afternoon to the community building for a hog roast and reception for graduate Bayleigh Clark. Such a big crowd and really good food. Congratulations to all graduates.

Blaine and Carol Ammeter arrived at the Ammeter farm later Saturday evening to spend the weekend.

George and Rose Watts of Agency, Mo., came to the farm Sunday for lunch. Blaine and Carol, Stanley, and B.J. were lunch guests, too. They had been visiting Carolyn and Jack in Wichita and George’s folks in Newton. We had a great visit.

Michele Hartnagel stopped by Sunday morning to visit.

Carolyn Holm of Wichita arrived Monday morning at LaVonne’s. We went to Peabody for lunch and to Legacy Park. We visited Laura Branham, Aunt Nonie Windler, Donna Robb, Emma Shaw, and Ruth Arnold. Later in the afternoon, we visited Luba Brinkman and the cemetery. We came home and got my quilts ready for a quilt show in Burns Memorial Day weekend. Carolyn left for home early evening.

Late Monday evening I received word my brother, Don Gillet, had died at Legacy Park. Such a shock! We extend prayers and love to Don’s family.

B.J. went to Topeka Monday afternoon with Arlen Gfeller.

I hope you all have a good week. The farmers are all enjoying the dry weather.

Our sympathy and prayers to the Joan Berns family and Don Gillet family. They will be missed.
