Bicentennial 2018

Another example of early architecture still stands on Cumberland Street, a beautiful home known as Lawnsette. It was formerly a residence then a hotel and later a gift shop. It is rumored to have been a stagecoach stop on the then National Road. Built in 1845, it is one of the three oldest houses remaining on National Road and in the former village of Euphemia. The Lawnsette has recently been sold.

Shout outs

The Historical Association would like to announce that the Singer’s Blacksmith Shop will be open the last Saturday of each month from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and during Derby Days 5-8 p.m., Aug. 18-19 and Saturday from noon-4 p.m. Forge demonstrations will be conducted. Plan on stopping by for a small piece of history. Mark your calendars.

Girls, Girls, Girls

We shared last week that Janet was having an MRI completed to see if she had a brain. Well, she does dor according the doctor “for her age, it looks appropriate!” The MRI also ruled out Multiple Sclerosis a disease that haunted her mom for many years. So, why is she still fallimg down and why are her legs and body becoming weaker? The tests are on-going with limited answers. With all the medical knowledge in our society, an answer will be found. Thank you to those who have inquired.

In closing

“Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal.” – Henry Ford

As this new school year begins, Judy and I want to encourage students of all ages to stick to your dreams and face them with high-set goals that will be met throughout the year.

‘There is spirit; there is grace in our peaceful country place.’ See you ‘Around the Burg!”

Until next week …

With Janet & Judy
