The Annual Mikey Ride

Hello Everyone     

       Susie and I would like to invite all of you to the 2014 Mikey Ride on July 19th . As always we are trying to help out someone we know who is having medical issues. I have attached a poster so you can read about who we are trying to help this year. If you don’t ride we would like to invite you to come to dinner and take part in the evening of fine foods and beverages and the auction in which we help raise money. Also if you can come to the dinner and want to bring a cover dish I’m sure it will be used. If you are unable to attend but wish to help out you can send a check to Mike Maupin, PO Box 212 Wallace NE. 69169 please make checks out to Laura Burke who we are helping out this year.

       Again we hope you are able to attend we are not able to do this out without the help of all of you. Also please feel free to make copies of this poster and hand it out to others or post it where you think it will be seen.

Thank you

Susie and Mike Maupin

Soda Fountain Memory

Do you miss the old soda fountains in the Rexall Drug Store?  You can still order a root beer float or an Old Fashioned Chocolate Frosty from that same counter which is now in the Dundy County Museum in Benkelman.

Here is a nice article in the McCook Gazette

Soda fountain is more than a 'Grandma thing'
