LITTLE ROCK My visitors on Monday afternoon were Joy Guentert and granddaughter Amy Braaflodt of Roseville, CA. They had been here for the Tucker reunion and were doing some visiting before leaving on Thursday to go home. The thunderstorm came up while they were here. They said it had been a while since they had been in one of those. It was Amy's first time in Arkansas. She said it was different but she was enjoying her time here.
Families of Paul Thao west of Yeargin had their family gettogether at Maysville Community Building the week before the Tucker reunion. There was a large group of them.
Maysville will not have polls open for voting in the school board election Sept. 15. There will only be two polls open in Gravette School District, in Gravette and Bella Vista. You can vote absentee and probably some can vote at one of these polls. You can check with the County Clerk's office.
Jewel Lukens visited Earl and Norma Holloway Friday evening. They are slowly improving from the car wreck they had some time ago.
Stacy Hunt visited her grandparents, Jack and Sylvia Tucker, one day this week. She lives in Fayetteville.
I went to Bentonville Friday morning to have breakfast with Steve and Susan Tucker and Sheldon, then we went to the airport to see him off to goback to Hawaii for college. His Dallas flight was canceled so he was an hour late getting to go to Dallas. I had just come in the door as the phone rang to let me know he had got to Dallas. He got to Hawaii at 2:30 Saturday a.m., our time.We won't see him until Christmas and that's a long time. He was looking forward to going back.
Patti King of Lowell and her grandson Noah Hunt of Fayetteville visited in the home of Jack and SylviaTucker this week. Patti had a day off at work.
Gabe and Kay Tucker of Vancouver, WA, visited Jack and Sylvia Tucker on Wednesday. They went to Cotton-Eyed Joe's for lunch, then went and visited Marvin and Billie Wilber for awhile. Gabe and Kay had been here for the Tucker reunion.
I left an item out last week of another former Maysville couple who came to the Tucker reunion to see some of them. It was Duane and Sylvia Landon of Wichita, KS. They had come for Gravette Day also.
Orpha Wardlaw's visitors, Ruth Petty of Lawton, OK, and Orpha's granddaughter Selena Fincher of Tulsa, OK, both left on Wednesday to return home. She enjoyed them for the time they were there.
The Teal family had their reunion at Maysville Community Building on Saturday. I think it was a birthday celebration. They like to have their get-togethers at Maysville.
