• The Richardsons had their monthly dinner for January. The children played three games of bingo. They won some very cool things. Everyone had a wonderful time eating and talking about old times. My grandkids Nathan, Abby and Emma got to come for the dinner, which made me very happy.
• Jan. 26, Bill and Bobbie Miner took Robert and Lois Young to Butler to watch their grandson Derek Miner play basketball. After the game, they drove back to Adrian to help Derek celebrate his eighth birthday. It was a really neat party had by his family Landon, Angela, Delana and Dathan. His mother made him a special cake with an MU theme. It was a beautiful day and even some of the grownups went outside and played games.
• Happy Birthday: Landon Miner, Jeromy Adams, Brandi Barrett, Sheri Davis 7th.
