This past week has been a very eventful week around here. It was homecoming week for our Ryan School.
On Wednesday, if you were on Washington Street, at about 9:15am, here came a little crew from the school. It was Heidi Townsend and TJ Dewbre, and 8 little preschoolers, walking to the drug store to get a tasty treat of an ice cream cone. They each one held onto a rope and walked in an orderly fashion, nearly a mile, to get to town. There were some dressed in a costume to go along with the week’s event.
It seemed like they all had a really good time. We had a table and chairs fixed up for them when they came.
On Friday, there was a good crowd to attend the homecoming football game. There was a special half time honoring Phil Elerick and the 1988 Ryan football team. Most of the men on the team from that time period were there for this. We had a parade downtown before the game and saw some very good looking floats. Our Cowboys won that game 30 to 14. Holland Carter was crowned Homecoming Queen at the game.
Saturday, Macie and Austin exchanged their wedding vows. It was a very pretty setting for their wedding. They were married just up north and east of Duncan at Kendall’s View venue.
Sunday, there was the Indian Taco dinner to raise money for the Ryan Beautification Group. It was a very good meal. I hope they raised a good bit of money so that it can be used in different ways to benefit the community.
I have not yet been able to find a buyer for the pharmacy. I keep extending my date of closure, thinking that something good will happen and the store will be able to stay open.
Tuesday afternoon, Robin told us that Ricky’s mom had passed away. Prayers to Ricky and his family during their time of loss.
This coming Saturday is the 4th Saturday of the month and the food commodities will be distributed at the Ryan Food Bank.
Kim’s news for this week:
On Sunday, once again, Dustan gave Ruffy Tuffy a trim and Penny was with him. On Monday, I was glad, I had lunch at Circle Dee’s with my dad. Foxy couldn’t go, she was sad.
Everyone have a blessed week. Pray for rain and each other, please.
