A thank-you goes out to the United Methodist Church for their “Come to the Table” event at the pavilion on June 22. It was well-attended, and all really enjoyed themselves. Special music was provided by Mia and Jace Hakala on the violin and guitar, Pastor John Scheuer on the guitar, and Richard Collman on the harp. And the food was great. The evening continued with music by the Keystones. They seem to be getting better and better every time I hear them.

The Cromwell-Wright area held a citywide garage sale over the weekend. There were 25 sales in all. Maybe this will become an annual event.
