To the editor:

I was driving around town today with nothing better to do, so I drove though Maytag Park. The pool was filled with laughing children and a few parents.

I saw two gentlemen setting up a table and I asked them why. They were from the Catholic church and later that night they were to have a barbecue, once the coals were glowing red.

Just another reason I’m glad I’ve continued to make our small town our home.
