It has been a very busy week. Lots going on and many more things to come. On Thursday June 15 Doyle and Mary Scroggins celebrated their 65th Wedding anniversary. They had a great party at the Scotland Senior Center and if the count is right they had about 150 people attend. If you were not there you missed a very good time. The decorations were lovely and they were done by Doyle and Marys’ daughter - Sherry and Grand daughter Jill. The food was delicious and the tables were beautiful. They had friends come from all over Arkansas as well as Texas and Oklahoma. They were pleased to have so many friends come to help them celebrate. Congratulations to both of you.
