Well! The fourth of July has gone by. The First Saturday Breakfast has happened. The annual birthday parties are past. Now it is time to move forward. On Tuesday July 11 at 6:30 p.m. will be the meeting in the Scotland School Cafeteria to decide ways to make money for the GYM ROOF. Y’al come and give your ideas and see how you can help make this work. We have had a lot of interest in ideas as well as donations. I hope to get caught up so I can send out thank you notes to all of you wonderful people that have been sending in donations.

I will continue this message after the meeting next Tuesday.

We received a message from the family of Johnny White that he passed away yesterday. He had cancer and has had a hard fight. Remember this family in your prayers. Masonic services will be Monday morning.

It is finally summer. Hot temperatures and high humidity. Heat index is supposed to be 114 Thursday. I hope they are wrong.

I have been having a portrait workshop at the studio and have 1 more class to finish up. I am very pleased with everyone’s portrait. I think they are doing a great job and I hope they have learned as much as I think they have. I did not have anyone sign up for the youth art classes so I have cancelled them. Maybe there is just to much going on in the summer.

Remember the gym is open everyday and closes at 9:00 p.m. for those of you that want to play. We ask that you be sure to cleanup after yourselves and be sure turn out the lights an close the doors. Also keep a lookout for ones that keep tearing the doors off of the old cafeteria and the side doors on the gym. If this keeps happening we will have to put up cameras and they will have to do the repairs as well as visit with the sheriff’s department.

Have a safe week and stay cool and inside during the hottest part of the day. If you have Scotland news and want it put in the paper call 592-3935 and he will take care of it.
