Westfield is paradise! We are home and glad to be here. Got home on my birthday, July 30. That was a great celebration! Jack and I rode 6,353 miles on the motorcycle to visit Jack’s son, Todd, and grandson, Boomer, and to ride Old Route 66 from Illinois to California. Sun, rain, grasshoppers, 105 degrees, 46 degrees and lightning and thunder didn’t stop us. We went to two national parks, The Arches in Utah and Mt. Rushmore in South Dakota. While in SD, we went to Sturgis to the 75th Anniversary Bike Rally. We met lots of interesting people on this trip. Everyone was nice and our Goldwing gave us no trouble.
Westfield Friends Meeting will begin a Bible study on Wednesdays at 7 p.m. Please join us in the fellowship hall. Pastor Linda Anderson and Harry Anderson will be holding the Bible study.
Tina and Dwight Collins spent a few days at the beach fishing. All Tina said about the beach was the weather was hot. They picked up their granddaughter, Claire, on the way home. Tina and Dwight took her to the Elvis show at the Barn Dinner Theater last Saturday night.
