The People in Action Free Luncheon at the CEB last week was attended by 40 people. Thanks to Bud Perry for his cheffing duties and to the helpers who served. Deb Judkins came from Upton to help out with this event. Despite the heat we all enjoyed the meal and fellowship.
The Community Yard Sale held last Friday and Saturday and for some Sunday, was a big success. People came to Andover from out of town and toured the locations listed in ads, but found that others had jumped on the band wagon and added to the number of sales going on. I personally had a sale in the breezeway of the parsonage with good traffic and met quite a few people I didn't know before as well as getting rid of some of the treasures that have amassed here over the years.
Olde Home Day is a mere 10 days away as of the date of this paper.

Buttons and T-shirts may be had at local stores as well as schedules of all events. Requirements for the flower show and photo contest are also available in the stores.
The children participating in the VBS program at the First Congregational Church enjoyed a trip up to the wind towers as part of Monday's activities, thanks to Don Crane for the tour. Other activities included the story of Noah, crafts and snacks. Ron White taught us the song "Uncle Noah's Ark" which was enjoyed by all.
Outdoor Volley Ball continues on Sunday and Wednesday evenings at 6 p.m. at the field next to Mills Market.
