VETERANS BENEFIT SEMINAR This Saturday at 12:00 noon at the Lilly American Legion Post 628 on Jones Street there will be a seminar held by Max Roberts, a certified Disabled American Veterans Service Officer. The purpose of the seminar is to help veterans become aware of the benefits available and if they qualify. This is open to all veterans from the area and we especially invite those that have served in Afghanistan and Iraq and the Desert Storm Conflict. If you served in Viet-nam and are not aware of the Agent Orange presumptions and compensation this may be important to you. The question and answer seminar will last about two hours.
TOWN WIDE YARD SALE The Lilly area town wide yard sale will be coming up on Saturday, August 4th. Call Nadine Rodgers to get on the map that will be distributed to visitors. The cost is only $5 and helps publicize the event.I am told it is bumper to bumper traffic that day.
GREEN GRASS Take a walk or a ride up past the War Memorial Field. You will be presently surprised how green the grass is getting on the LABBA field. The fire company has been helping keeping the area watered and the few down pours lately also helped. Now to see the old boney pile turn green.
