The Promontory community, both the east side and west side, are very grateful to the Box Elder fire crews for coming to put out the fire on the west side. The fire burned approximately 5,000 acres. Several buildings wore threatened, but saved in the nick of time. The fire almost came over the mountain onto the east side. The fire fighters put that out, too. Boyd Udy, helped fight the fire with them.
Boyd Udy and his great horse Crocker went to Clay Nicholas’ arena in Corinne for an annual get-together of roping and fun. Boyd also reports all his 2011 foals have been weaned and named. “They’re doing good,” he says.
On Labor Day weekend Orson and Jeannette Poulsen drove up to Elba, Idaho, with their camping trailer. Elba is north of Park Valley, but south of Malta. The couple made some new friends and had a good time.
On Labor Day Orson and Jeannette drove over to Wellsville to join the community in celebrating Wellsville’s Founder’s Day. They met friends there and enjoyed breakfast cooked by the Wellsville Fire Department. Part of the celebration involved a reenactment of an Indian skirmish that happened there. Afterwards, the Poulsens drove to Logan to do some shopping.
Orson reports his garden is beginning to produce a few tomatoes. Hopefully, if the weather holds dry and warm, there will be squash and corn. The late Elberta peaches will be ready in a couple of weeks.
Kaye Draper, Hilary, Pauline, Helen and Linda ate dinner at the Coachman restaurant.
Kaye really enjoys calling bingo. That’s just what she did Friday evening in her apartment building.
On Saturday Bea, Gloria, Pauline, Sally, Grace, Verna and Kaye descended on McDonald’s for lunch.
Sunday, after church, Kaye drove to West Valley City, where she visited Carolyn and Bill Bolton’s home for dinner and cards.
Jim and Starr Mitchell report their tomatoes are coming along really good. Starr also reports her potatoes, although small, are ready to eat or store.
Jim’s cousin Ross came to visit them for a few days. They had a good time and kept Starr busy fixing some of her favorite foods.
On Tuesday morning Clynn and Winnie Richman drove to Denny’s in Tremonton to meet Pam and Jack Apodaca to celebrate Jack’s birthday. (He’s not saying which one!) After breakfast Clynn, with Winnie behind the wheel, drove to Logan to investigate the new Harbor Freight just off 1400 North. The pair then traveled back over the hill to Brigham City for sandwiches at McDonald’s and to attend piano lessons for Marriah and brother Skyler Richman.
Winnie attended art class all alone Wednesday.
On Sunday Aaron Richman and son Skyler came to the Double S Bar Ranch. They ended up helping Winnie.
Winnie would like to thank Aaron and friend Dennis Olsen for fixing a window pane for her.
