It was just a week ago that Lydia’s was the scene of a very surprised Janet Shaw Powley when her family had arranged dinner for many friends and relatives. After tears of gratitude and hugs from her four kids and their spouses, she seemed delighted with the celebration.

Even the sign advertising Lydia’s was blinking ‘Happy 80th Birthday, Janet’. A very diverse menu was offered to the guests with the Powley children and their spouses picking up the tab. Lydia’s long time tradition continues. Spaghetti, raviolis, salami, cheese, sweet potato salad, etc., was served as a teaser. No one went away hungry.

Mary Ann Larsen and Norm Ridder were guests for the regular afternoon of Pinochle. Gladys Ballard won the Pinochle; Carol Tichenor, won High; Florence Weyer, Second and Lucile Buchanan, Low. The next hostess is a mystery.

Smoke, but no fire, drove Russell and Wanda Munson out of their Lincoln hide-away during this scorching weather. Even with the house tight, smoke still became unbearable. Being at home in Cardwell will give them time to catch-up with needs here.

Following morning worship, Evan and Laura Lewton were honored at a potluck lunch. They are newlyweds and this was an opportunity for Evan’s home church family to offer congratulations. He had prepared a video of the wedding for the gathering and used the occasion to introduce Laura to the many who shared the dinner. The Lewtons headed back to their home in Spokane to resume work.

Maggie Whitehurst, Iris Heimberg and Evelyn Frankenstein joined over 400 other musicians for an exciting trip to Europe. Maggie’s story in first person will be printed in next week’s Ledger. I did not hear back from Iris, and Evelyn has moved to California. Please enjoy the story next week.
