Speakers for the Spring Valley Homeowners Association brought in a standing-room only crowd, not only the Spring Valley homeowners, but others that travel Highway 69 and pass the entrance to Spring Valley. There have been many deaths at that location and in a meeting last year a tentative solution was discussed. But with all things on the government level, timing and money seem to be the driving factor. While a traffic circle was talked about last year, the cost of construction was a major problem and the traffic signal would be a much less expensive way to go. But again came the discussion of funding. There is no decision and nothing happening in the near future, so please slow down and use caution when on Highway 69 when you pass the Spring Lane intersection.
It was a gorgeous day for the Romeos to bring their classic cars to Harley-Davidson in Mayer on March 29. There must have been over 40 vehicles, with one brighter and shinier than the last, so it was difficult to pick out which one you liked the best. Our thanks to the Romeos for supporting the Mayer Area Meals on Wheels. It was a highly successful fundraising event. Our thanks not only to Logan Roberts of Harley-Davidson for hosting the event and providing part of the meal, but to American Legion Post 78, for providing another part of the meal and serving it. The drawing for the goodie basket was also very successful with Sam, the president of the Romeos being the winner. He now has much to munch on, as the basket was filled with many goodies.
Mayer Area Meals on Wheels has been struggling lately, and with the wonderful participation of the communities in these fundraising events, it should become strong again. Thanks to the loyal supporters for their efforts.
