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 gathering at the Frymire cross for Easter Sunrise service did not get to see the sun rise because of the cloud cover but that didn't dampen their spirits. Pastor Tanis led the assembled in song and worship. Afterwards all enjoyed good food and fellowship.

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 ...
Spring is in the air and a lot of people came to the breakfast last Sunday to enjoy the good food, fellowship and the scenery along the way.
Your reporter's husband is sorry for the missed column last week. He sent the wrong column in, and it was too late when the mistake was discovered. He has since been relieved of his secretarial job, and your reporter has to learn how to attach a document to E-mail. Last week's news will be printed today.

Sponsors for the sign so far are: River's Edge, 50's Roadhouse, River Journey, Knights Ferry History and Museum Associates and the Ice Cream and Sweets Shop. It looks really nice.
