Mary Lenz is racing again!  Her dad, Tom, is her pit crew.  She started the season by finishing 5th in the B feature.

 

Brendyn1

Brendyn, grandson of Tony and Wendy Waites, spent the day with me on Saturday.  He loved the new swing set!

Brendyn2

And the slide.

Then we went to the park where he found a couple guys to play basketball with.  It's always nice when you get a lift from a friend.

High five!  Good game, guys!

 

GREAT Time for a Park Clean Up!

The eighth graders at Elmwood Murdock participate in the G.R.E.A.T. program.  That stands for Gang Resistance Education and Training.  Deputy Wes Tuttle leads the class in training that will help them resist gang influence.  Each kid is tasked with completing a community service project and then reporting on it to the class.  You may have seen kids picking up trash along the highway and wondered what motivated them.  My son, Joseph, and his friend, Curtis Spracklin, chose to clean up the Elmwood Park.  It is in very good shape because James and Grace Ronhovde do a bang up job but there were a few little things the boys decided to do.

Park_before

The weeds under the playground equipment were getting out of control.

Park_Joe

So Joe and Curtis attacked the weeds and cleaned up that area.  They hauled out two and a half garbage bags full of weeds!

Park_weeds_boys

Thumbs up for a GREAT job, boys!

Park_playground_after

It looked much better after they were done!

Park_pits_before

Then they decided that the horseshoe pits were in very sad shape.

Park_pits_crew

So we started digging...and digging, and scooping...luckily Kalee Brewer stopped by and lent us a hand.  We looked up the correct dimensions and found that the pits should be between 4" and 8" deep.  After digging only a few minutes we decided 4" would be adequate.

Park_Vince

After 2 1/2 pits we were getting pretty tired so we called in reinforcements.  Vince brought his tiller and made quick work of the project.

 

Park_Vince_digging

Vince was a big help!  I have a fence that needs painted, too...wonder if he would want to help with that...because he is so good at it.  Wink

Park_Pits_boys

We are hoping the Village will be able to put sand in the pits and make them functional.

Park_after

The pits are ready for the sand!

Park_pits_afterwards

The 125th Birthday Celebration for Elmwood would be a GREAT time for a horseshoe tournament!  Curtis and Joe are ready for a game.

Park_tree_dirt

We piled the dirt that we dug up around a tree that had its roots exposed.  Wouldn't it be cool to have a bench built around this tree and flowers planted in the dirt?  Anyone...anyone....?

But what a great way to explain "liability coverage" to a teenager.  Sad day for Millie.

CDs_farewell_3

Deb and Coleman Lenz close the book on this chapter of their lives.  After 6 1/2 years of running the local gas station/convenience store they are moving on to another adventure.  They are opening a new store in Elmwood called the 4th Street Market.  It will be a floral, gift, and wine shop, among many other things.  There will be wine tasting events, gifts, flowers, just about anything you could ask for...including gift wrapping!  The grand opening date has yet to be set but if you send Deb an email she will add you to her distribution list and keep you up to date on their progress.  We will keep you posted here, too.  Deb's email address is: dlenz5@hotmail.com

CD's Express will become Midwest Coop and Becky Callaway will manage it.  She has worked there for 15 years and is very excited to step up. Niki Baumgart, employee at the gas station, made the cakes/cookies below for Deb to show her appreciation.

I received an email from the Gretna Sanitation company.  They are starting a service for composting.  I'm including the attachment they sent me.  This may be something that our community could take advantage of.
