Ball tournament started at 8:30 am and finished around 6:30

Eight teams competed.  Three Beds showed up for the Bed

Race and last year's champs, FOAGA, held their title for the

second year in a row.  Throughout the day there were kids

games, concessions, popcorn stand, and in the evening smoked

grilled chicken or pork dinner with sides was served.  It was some

really good eating.  All participants in the Kickin' Balls and Racin'

Beds received Manley T-shirts and other prizes.  The Pillage the

Village committee is already looking forward to next year. 

So start building your beds and gathering your teams now.

Fall is in the air.  The first day was this week and you can

tell by the chill in the air in the mornings that it is here.

The mums around town are so beautiful.  The apartment

building owned by Bill and Sue Connor on main street is

decorated for fall.  The curb
appeal is great!




Better head out to the Punkin' Patch on Highway 34 to get your

fall decorating items.  They have gourds, pumpkins, decorative corn,

mums, just about anything you could want!

The Flying Wheels was Hoppin' Last Weekend!

The kids came out in droves!  It was so much fun!  Elmwood, Murdock,

Weeping Water, and surrounding communities have some really great

Great Weather = Picnic in the Park


A family takes advantage of the great weather to have a picnic in the

park.  The Elmwood City Park is one of the best around.  The tennis

court net was recently replaced and the court has been spiffed up.

It has been getting some serious playing time, too.  Did you know the

park has horseshoe pits?  Bring your shoes down and challenge your

buddies.  The Boot Camp team has been utilizing the park all summer

to keep in shape!


That reminds me...Boot Camp!

Annette Eggert leads the Boot Camp team in exercises several times a week.

The workout is strictly at your own pace.  She provides a variety of exercises

and shows you how to do them but leaves it up to you to push yourself to

your limit.  She doesn't stand over you and scream at you.  Give her a call if

you are interested.  It would be a great combination with the Lifetime Wellness

Center Weightloss Challenge!

Workout Times:  Monday & Wednesday nights - 6:45-7:45

Friday mornings - 5:45 - 6:45

Saturday mornings - 6:15 - 7:15
