Meanwhile, the family is making a valiant effort to catch all the crappie in Lake Eufaula. They continue to report daily success, but Dave and Jodi have decided they need to do some investigative reporting and perhaps some testing of the catches. Two of the grandchildren, Kaitlyn and Jeremiah, have been visiting with Dave and Jodi. They accompanied their grandparents on the lake trip, but Kaitlyn plans to return and make her home here with Dave and Jodi next year while she attends classes at the vo-tech.
Scott and Kristen Eidson who have served as youth directors at New Bethel for the past three years submitted their resignation recently. In a letter, Scott expressed his appreciation to the church for the opportunity of serving the young people.
Five young men from the Eidson’s group graduated from Byng School May 17. They are River Chambers, Braden Cooper, Kainin Daugherty, Austin Sollazzo and Bradley Stick.
Tommy Cooper underwent surgery at the Heart Hospital in Oklahoma City for installation of a pacemaker and defibrilator. He has gained a great deal of energy and is able to resume all his normal activities.
My son and daughter-in-law, Tim and Loyce Milligan, Hot Springs, Ark., visted me recently and made some home repairs at the family home in Byng. I have a contract to sell my home, but some repair work is necessary so I certainly appreciate all the effort they have put in.
