Haigler Happenings - May 23, 2011

The Haigler Village Wide Garage Sales on Saturday were lots of fun and many people from surrounding communities attended.  Weather was great, and everyone got good buys. 
Haigler residents are anticipating many alumni to return to the place of their roots for a reunion and others for the Memorial Services this week-end.  These events also provide an opportunity to meet old friends and former residents of the area that come for the occasions.
The American Legion members plan a Memorial Day Service that will start at 10:00 a.m. sharp on the 30th of May at the Haigler Cemetery.

     The Haigler Red Hatters celebrated May birthdays and their May meeting with a Mother Goose Red Hatters' Garden Tea Party on Thursday afternoon, May 19.  Hostesses  were the Collicott  Sisters:  LaNeta Carlock, Myrna Mulligan, and Galena Webster.  Weather cooperated with sunshine, no rain, not much wind, and warmer temperatures.  The Carlock gardens and serving tables were decorated with Mother Goose characters.  Refreshments were served "under the tent," and included Goosey Gander sugar cookies, Peter Rabbit carrot cupcakes, ants on a log; Humpty Dumnpty egg sandwiches, Twinkle Star cucumber sandwiches, Miss Muffet cherry scones, Hey Diddle fruit kabobs, Mulberry bush tea, and London Bridge lemonade.  Activities included searching gardens for the golden egg from Mother Goose, selected readings by Stan Carlock from his recently published book, "Where We Belong," and everyone sharing their favorite nursery rhyme and doll or stuffed animal.  The ladies who attended were Iona Maupin, Joann Webster, Jean Blecha, Esther Erdman, Eilene Erdman, Carolyn Rosenfelt, Kaye Kamla, Jean Moore, Belva Olson, Lois   Zuege, Marilyn Bannister, Doris Tecker, and Veda Douglass--plus the hostesses.  Everyone enjoyed the afternoon.
Floy Fisher is looking forward to this weekend when her son and wife, Garry and Sharon Fisher, plan to arrive at their property near Wray Colorado.  They have listed their California property in rural Newberry Springs on the Internet and plan to build a new home on their Wray property.  Sharon will have retired this year from her position in Education.  Garry retired 2 years ago and has been concentrating on finishing touches to their lovely home which they built there.  They have it listed on the internet, hoping to sell it soon.  Garry has built a solar system that gives them free heat and pumps their water from the well.   Meanwhile, at Wray, they will be living in their travel trailer beside a  steel building that was erected a few years ago.
