HAPPY NEW YEAR
As you read this column New Years will be upon us. Have a great time with your family and friends as you welcome in 2016.Think of the good times of the past year and start thinking of new adventures for the coming year.
Look around the Lilly/Washington community and see the finished pavilion at the new ball field; the United Mine Workers water fountain at the Miners monument and the beautiful bell tower across the parkyard. All completed this year.
Christmas came and went with out any snow and I didn’t miss it at all. Guess we can live without a White Christmas. Sorry! Bing Crosby.
A sincere community sympathy is extended to the family and friends of Paul Smith who recently passed away. Paul was very active with the Lilly Fire Company and was their chief mechanic. He will be missed.
