LABOR DAY WEEKEND
It is hard to believe that the kids are back in school. Labor Day weekend commences and it is county fair time again. Where did the lazy days of summer go? At least we should have warm temperatures for the holiday.
If you are out and about in Lilly this weekend take a run by the miners monument. You just might get to see the sculptor at work installing part of the gigantic master piece. He brought it to town in sixteen pieces last Sunday, August 18th and it has been in safe storage here since
Further up the road you can see the current reclamation work that has been going on near Lilly Coal.
Saturday evening the Lilly High School class of 1963 will be getting together at the Sokols. The class invites the public to join them in dancing and enjoying music there after 9:00 PM.
There was a very nice block party on Saturday, August 24th at the home of Larry and Carla Summerville on Piper Street. Many neighbors from Piper Street and Dog Town joined with the Summerville family for an afternoon of good food and merriment.
I was surprised to learn that a blue heron has been dining on the trout in Bear Rock Run in town for the past two years. I have yet to see it. We need a fishing license but the bird gets free passage.
