Tipton Towne Square Days was kicked off with the annual Vesper Service Sunday evening, July 15. A nice crowd of 52 people filled the pavilion listen to music from Richard Manning and to hear a sermon from Kevin Wilson, president of the local Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Wilson's main focus for his sermon was bringing God back into our world.
This is one of my favorite times of the year when fresh produce from gardens is being harvested. This weekend we enjoyed fried zucchini and tomatoes from our own garden. We also had sweet corn we bought in town. It’s neat to be able to enjoy what we grow in our gardens right here in Missouri. We continue to pray for rain as we know it’s needed badly.
SYRACUSE- The news again this week is hot, dry, humid weather. Under heat advisories, you stay inside in air conditioning most of the time. If you have to go outdoors, you have to drink a lot of water to stay hydrated. Joan and I feel sorry for the kids who have to work out in the heat. Grandkids Ella and Gage Claas are in camp this week with no air conditioning. It will be a rough week.
