Harmony Senior Citizens Hold Get-Together
Thirty-three members of the Harmony Senior Citizens met recently at a social distance and mask wearing outdoor get-together.

Beverly Smith, president, welcomed everyone, and Lois King led the flag salute and Pauline Edsall offered a prayer. It was decided to keep the same officers for the coming year; dues would not be collected; and memorials will be continued until next year. The group may meet again at an outside event with everyone bringing a bag lunch. The date has not been determined. All senior trips for the remainder of the year have been cancelled.
