The Big Blazing Back2School Sale at the Wonder Valley Thrift Store, located on the paved section of Godwin Road, is going on until September 3. Stop in and see what they have.
Our big wooden sign in front of the Wonder Valley Community Center, 80526 ½ Amboy Road, got a complete face lift thanks to Cyrilo Martinez and the Joshua Tree Park and Rec crew. They also have the palm trees looking better than they have in many years! Lots of thanks to all the “JT Guys.”
And speaking of our community center, it was closed on Monday, August 29 due to problems with the well. As we write this, we do not yet know if the problems are major or minor, so are not sure if it will be open or closed the rest of the week. There will be a sign on the door regarding any closures.
We send out Rainbows-of-Peridots-and-Gladiolas to Scott Kelso and Cheryl Davies who celebrate their special days this week. Happy birthday to you both!
Handy Hint: Vinegar will help keep stainless steel utensils and appliances spot-free.
Thought for Today: “Thanksgiving dinners take 18 hours to prepare. They are consumed in 12 minutes. Half-times take 12 minutes. This is not coincidence.” – Erma Bombeck
Until next time . . . remember to take time to enjoy the WONDERs all around us.
