Amy Simons and daughter Elissa spent their Easter vacation in France. Elissa had always wanted to go there and the time was right. They spent time in Paris doing all the "tourist" things, went to Rouen where Joan of Arc was burned at the stake, went to the beaches of Normandy where the cemetery has 9000 soldiers buried and France turned it over to the United States. They also went to Mont. St. Michel and toured the Loire Valley where they saw many Chateaus. It was a wonderful trip.

The Easter Sunrise Service wooden cross on Frymire Hill that had been blown over in a storm has been resurrected by the special effort of master craftsperson Bob Muller. Originally built for Easter by the Frymire's son-in-law Bob Paulat, time and weather rotted the wood so Bob Muller made a sturdy metal sleeve strong enough to survive many storms. Dave Rorabaugh effortlessly maneuvered his backhoe to put the cross into the new hole, dug by Verle Beckerdite. Fred and Lisa Dolling, who mixed and delivered the cement to the hole, provided the manual labor. Supervisors were Phil Frymire and ...
