Popcorn didn't even sound good on this sul'y July evening, but the lemonade and iced tea literally melted away!

Here's hoping to BCNU there! the date of the year they were platted as their beginning rather than when they were in- corporated. If that's the case, it's later than we think! Evidently the decision was made in 1954 for Harlan to celebrate their 75th birthday by the Chamber of Commerce, as this organization is listed as the sponsor of the event. Either way, Harlan's been around for quite a while! It was so thoughtful of Mrs Crane to call, though, as we do appreciate all information about such things.

All the birds have flown away from the nest again after an all-too-brief visit and the rooms seem so IRGE ? We knew this was going to happen, but just the same, we weren't ready for it. But life goes on, and the best thing to do is to be thankful for the precious hours and days we have had while looking to the future. It helps to get real busy with something else, so here goes! At least I know there is one reader of this column. Lois Crane (Mrs Dr. Crane) of Shelby was kind enough to give me a telephone call last week. She said she was doing that instead of writing a letter, and I was glad because it's nice to hear a new friend's voice!

S;t.op .in la : AT LEAST we know for sure this is the year for the Shelby County Centennial Fair! And R's off to a good start. With activity of all kinds, there is something for everyone at the Fairgrounds. It's buzzing with excitement. It was buzzing last week, too, on Friday night's racing date. When Grandfather took the boys, they politely invited Grandma to go along. And she did! Really, I don't think it is just my Cup of tea because I get all shook up at the spills and close calls. But it was exciting, there's no doubt about that. In between watching the races (and they are so well organized that there isn't TOO much time ) it was fascinating to watch the people. So many young folks and children were there, it seemed. They were intent and interested in every facet of the evening's program. Vicariously having the thrills and chills of driving those noisy monsters, they were having the time of their lives. Hushed by the crashups, the crowd cheered lustily as the drivers were PAGE 3 Hrhn, la.
