Orson and Jeannette Poulsen had a nice week. They went to the Box Elder County Fair Friday night to listen to Orson’s brother Dennis’s West Desert Trio Plus 1 band. Dennis was also the manager of the fair bandstand this year. They also went through some of the exhibits.
Orson has finished his second crop of hay and is eagerly awaiting his third crop. “I love the fall best of all the seasons,” he says.
Boyd Udy enjoyed the fair without having to participate. He attended the horse events and the Bulls, Broncs and Barrels event. “I had fun,” Boyd says. “It was a good show.”
Gary and Cleo Petit enjoyed breakfast last week with friends. The couple has already picked some beets and tomatoes from their garden. “We didn’t plant a large garden this year,” Gary says.
Jim and Starr Mitchell “mostly hung around the house” during the terrible heat of the days and did their daily work outside at the beginning and end of the days. Jim reports he is looking for good hunting prospects both at home and abroad.
On Wednesday Winnie Richman and granddaughter Marriah Richman went to art class in Clearfield. They made significant progress on their paintings. Marriah wishes school could wait until her paintings are done.
Thursday morning Winnie off-loaded and stacked 36 bales of straw.
Thursday night Winnie met daughter-in-law April and grandchildren Marriah, Zach and Skyler for Family Night at the county fair rodeo.
On Saturday Winnie went to the county fair livestock auction from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. It seemed to be a highly successful event for the owners of the livestock.
Winnie got to see the paintings in the exhibit building. Lori Nicholas’s painting of a modern-day cowboy ranch working scene was outstanding. Winnie also enjoyed the crochet work.
Sunday at Thatcher-Penrose 2nd Ward was ward conference. The choir, led by Carol Larsen and accompanied by Megan Larsen, performed “Because He Lives” as the intermediate musical number.
Thursday was a fun and interesting day for Kaye Draper. The Liberty Senior Center sponsored a lunch and entertainment at Jordan Park and the New Fiddlers played some lively tunes. That evening Kaye and Marlene went to a bar-be-que at the Wheeler Farms. A western band performed for the group. On Friday Kaye called bingo at the Lowell Apartment Building.
On Saturday Kaye, Pauline and Helen went to a baby shower for Pauline’s granddaughter.
