Thanks for the gifts and the cards. Best wishes to you all. I enjoyed the birthday party, and appreciate the folks that came to help me celebrate my birthday.
Thank you to all the donors at the Watkins Blood Drive Wednesday, July 24. Sixty-four units were collected and our goal would have been exceeded, but there was a power outage the last hour, and donors who came were unable to give. Donors and volunteers, your patience was greatly appreciated throughout the day.
Those earning pins were Connie Hesse for 2 gallons, Doris Rathmann for 6 gallons, and Roxanne Dick for 9 gallons. Thank you and congratulations.
Thank you, mayor Loch, for your personal donation to the Watkins pool fund by hosting a free day of swimming for everyone Sunday, July 28. The turnout was GREAT, more than 60 people enjoyed free swimming, refreshments and lots of fun. Also, thank you to our mayor’s wife Pam. To everyone who came out to swim and support the pool, thank you all! It is thrilling to see the pool full and everyone having just a good time. Hearing the kids ask if they can please stay longer, truly sends a message how important the pool is to our children and community. Thank you again for makin’ a splash happen for the Watkins Swimming Pool!
