Here’s the newsletter for June. Lets talk about GREEN!! Everything is
and got that way very quickly! The yard transformation is amazing and

Report from Swede Gustufson:
Betty Ann has been working diligently on getting all the parts and
pieces together regarding the show. She has met with the Southgate Mall
office people three times, picked up all the tubs of information from
the storage shed and gone through most of what is contained in each tub,
ordered new ribbons, show entry tags, entry tag ribbon awards seals,
made up a bunch of awards seals, and is now in the process of getting
these placed into one tub fro the show. I have helped when necessary
when I am available from yard work necessities. We both came down with
the Missoula cruddy cold that has been traveling about the local
citizens but are now in the latter stages of this disease. Hope you
people do not come down with this.
