Twenty-three seniors from the Burns community enjoyed the monthly potluck dinner of the Burns Senior Citizens and Friends on April 10 at the Burns Community Building.

LaVonne Ammeter asked the blessing and everyone recited the flag salute.

Earl Glenn entertained the group, sharing experiences of his childhood in Arkansas and Kansas.

Earl was an only child and had only a bulldog named “Jiggs” and the little girl across the road to play with, even though he had to give her a dime to play with him. He told of putting a saddle on “Old Bessie” the cow and riding her.

Earl has worked for the city of Burns for 12 years. He is an interesting and entertaining storyteller.

James Olberding called the meeting to order. The minutes of the last meeting were read and approved and a treasurer’s report was given and approved.

Sandy Cunningham reported on a book being published, “Our Nation Called,” which will be a tribute to Marion County veterans.

Beverly Morgan read “A New Happy Birthday Rendition” and “If Your Body Were a Car.”
