Meeker Locals: April 9 edition

MEEKER — Several months ago we ran a story about first grade teacher Becky Hughes and the book she and her class put together as a thank you gift for Avis Loshbaugh who gives a beautifully wrapped book to the class each month as “the book fairy.” The book written by Hughes and her students is now available for sale, according to a press release from Dorrance Publishing. Entitled “The Book Fairy,” it’s a beautifully illustrated book published by Dorrance Publishing. Way to go, Becky and class! And kudos to Avis for providing the inspiration for a new bit of children’s literature!
A belated happy anniversary wish to Richard and Brinda Bland, April 4. Happy anniversary April 11 to Bill and Jerrie Calkins.
Celebrating birthdays this week are Ann Marie Scritchfield, April 9; Paul Neilson, April 10; Leota Cook, April 12; Ron Spencer, Mandy Mobley, Steve Harman and Tom Walsh, April 13.
Harold and the Herald Times staff would like to wish everyone a very happy Easter weekend! Again. We got a little bit ahead of ourselves last week. And don’t forget, it’s time once again to pay good old Uncle Sam. April 15 is Christmas for the IRS. Be sure to file your personal income taxes by midnight next Wednesday.
