We have been so fortunate to have Patty Tibbs as our Dillsboro Branch Library Leader ! She retired after eighteen years with the Aurora Public Library District . Patty was always so kind and helpful to everyone who visited the library . Book club members commented on their meetings being started with wonderful refreshments and a warm welcome from Patty . She remembered everyone ’ s names , family , and interests while making a visit to the library special . She will be missed . We wish her much enjoyment in her new adventures .
Recently I heard someone refer to the Dillsboro Homecoming Festival ( May 16-19th this year ) as the ‘ Worlds Fair ’.

O ur

We ’ ve all heard that or jokingly said it ourselves , but it made me really think about my days at the fair . I loved meeting friends ‘ uptown ’ when I was a teenager and riding the rides , even if I did get sick a time or two . My mom reminded us of the year that my sister and I marched in the parade , my brother ’ s band , took first place in the talent contest , my dad won the horseshoe tournament , and my mom took first in the nail driving contest ! She said she won because she was slow and steady while her opponents , in their haste , bent their nails …. There ’ s a lesson there . Memories are many if you grew up here , and the meaning of ‘ Homecoming ’ becomes dear if you move away . This long-continuing festival in our town adds so much to our collective memory . Whether you live far away or right in town , I hope you each have a great Homecoming story to tell .
To this day , when I hear a particularity loud croak from the pond , I think , “ I bet that one can really jump !”

Spring is finally getting here with some temperatures getting into the 80 ’ s the week I ’ m writing this , and I ’ m happy for some nice , warm weather .
I had my trailer and truck in the parade for the opening of the Aurora Little League on Saturday , April 28 . That day turned into a windy and chilly day but the rain held off . Grandsons , Grady and Coleton made their season debut . Grady is on the Indians while Coleton is on the Reds . Carli is busy with fast pitch softball with the Outlaws .
Rising Sun High School has a softball celebrity with freshman Lindsay Montgomery who smashed the home run record for a season , which was six when she hit number seven at Lawrenceburg . She has since increased that to nine as I ’ m writing this . Just an amazing

SUNMAN feat because that ’ s a career total for some that not too many reach . Hard to believe she ’ s only a freshman .

Sidney Pitts fired a perfect game against Madison Shawe as the Bryce Kendrick club is putting up some high numbers for the total runs in many games .
I attended the Eagle Scout program on April 22 for Caleb Valentine . He has worked hard to achieve his goal , and I was very proud of him . He ’ s had great support from the troop , Mom , Dad , and Grandma Karen .
Memorial Day will be here soon . Don ’ t forget the parade and ceremony at the courthouse on Monday , May 28 . The parade starts at 10:00 AM . I ’ ll be giving the speech this year as well as the one for a veterans ’ banquet at Arlington Memorial Gardens on May 27 . The Rising Sun River Sweep will take place on June 16 .
I ’ ll be heading back to Washington , DC for our veterans ’ trip on June 22-24 with fifty veterans . Seeing the memorials and monuments is always a great time . My favorite is still the Changing of the Guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier .
Rising Sun lost a great World War II Veteran , Kenny Swanson . Kenny went on my very first Honor Flight in 2008 and then went on one of our bus trips in 2010 . I remember one day I saw someone pulling weeds at the memorial at the courthouse and it was Kenny . Here was a World War II Veteran down on his knees , so I joined in and helped this war hero . What a man ! We ’ re sure going to miss him and his wonderful personality . We ’ re losing an important part of
American History with our World War II Veterans , so make sure your kids and grandkids have the honor of meeting one of them before it ’ s too late . I had lunch recently with Lawrence Lyttle and Bush White who are two of the best of the WWII boys .
We had our monthly Vietnam Veterans meeting at Hillforest on April 26 . This was the first time I ’ ve visited that beautiful place and now wonder why it took so long . Our tour guides , Judy Ullrich , Dee Hacker , John Blasdel , Cindy Schuette , and Suzanne Ullrich were outstanding .
The best of health to all of you and be thankful for all your blessings .
