Haigler Happenings - May 30, 2011

Birthday celebration
Karen Harford celebrated her birthday and the following week in Grapevine, Texas with her son Ty Mayo and his wife Laura.  What a treat to spend time with her two granddaughters, reading stories and collecting insects.  She also spent time with cousins, Denzil and Beverly Clegg and their daughter Ann and her family and her sister-in-law, Joan Mayo and her family.  The weather wasn't always the best with hail pounding and tornado sirens going off, but no real serious damage occurred. It was a fun week and it slipped by all too quickly. 
The open house at the Cornerstone Museum was well attended and enjoyed Sunday afternoon.  Stan and LaNeta Carlock are to be commended for their dedication to preserving our past history. Their many hours of restoration, record keeping and research over the years are greatly appreciated by the visitors that came for the Alumni and Memorial Day events as well as by the local residents.
Memorial Services at the Haigler Cemetery- began at 10:00 sharp Monday morning.  Kenny Potthoff, Adjutant General, of the American Legion, led in the services.  He gave honor to those who lost their lives for our Country's freedom and expressed appreciation to those who keep the cemetery grounds looking beautiful.  Earl Erdman placed a wreath on the grave of the unknown soldier.  4H members, Angela Crouse and Meg Peterson, led in the pledge of allegiance.  Rick Morris, son of a Legionnaire, offered the prayer.  Althea Lebow sang a solo then Pastor Farmer of the Lutheran Church gave the address mentioning that more lives were lost in the Civil war, fighting each other, than in any other war.  Althea Lebow played Taps for the firing squad.  After the services many went to the Legion Hall for Cinnamon Rolls and more visiting with relatives and old friends. 
A Visit to Aunt Floy's House - Leah and Dwight Brewer and Sherri Gregory spent an enjoyable time visiting their Aunt Floy Fisher on Sunday afternoon.  They inspected her garden, enjoyed the many different colored irises blooming around her yard, checked out the apricot tree and caught glimpses of several different kinds of birds visiting her bird feeders.  Sherri enjoyed a special foot treatment which nearly put her to sleep.
Floy Fisher went to Wray, CO Monday afternoon to meet her son and wife, Garry and Sharon Fisher who arrived at their summer home late Sunday night.  They had left their home in Newberry Springs, CA at 4:00 a.m. Sunday morning each driving a vehicle.  They plan to make rural Wray their permanent home now since they are both retired.
More Memorial Day events will be reported next week.

    The Memorial Day services were beautiful this morning as always. I would love to have pictures or a video of the service, if anyone has them to share. Thank you, Tonya (Potthoff) Stover. email to:
