    Irene Dodson, 862-3808

    What lovely weather we are having. We had a great weekend for Cecilia Days, with the exception of a short time when about 2 inches of rain fell about 6 p.m., sending everyone scurrying for shelter, with some failing to escape getting wet. But the rain only lasted for a short time, then all activities resumed.
