Class of '57

_______The Lohrville High School Class of 1957 got together last evening at the Pizza Ranch in Rockwell City.  A good time was had by all.  We seem to fit in with this group of slightly aging people.  (Of course we are much younger and healthier)  They had 28 graduates of which 8 are deceased.  All but one pictured, live in Iowa. ____We drove up through Farnhamville and Lohrville on the way both up and home.  RAGBRAI had passed through earlier yesterday and there were many bikers and buses still there.  Plus riders coming into both towns.  Doubted if they would get to Webster City for the night unless they caught rides.  Was a very hot day to ride and yesterday was too.  Now a cooler front is moving through and bringing storms with it.

Greene County Fair

Last Week was the Greene County Fair.  I helped on Tuesday when they judged the 4-H photography entries.  Wednesday I helped set up for Art Hall.  All day Thursday I was there to accept entries for the Genealogy division.  We had 56.  And then back Sunday afternoon for people to pick up their exhibits.  I took out quite a few genealogy things and 5 photos.  Did very well.  I got the best over all genealogy exhibit, but not with the entry I thought deserved it....   As always..  only one person's opinion counts, that is the judge.  Entry numbers were down.  Gardens and flowers were past their prime and over all everything was down.  I think people are tired of getting out in this hot weather.
