Kourtney Burnett was at the Larry and Kathryn Langdon home and Lenny and Drake Proctor came from Washington State to visit Jim and Diane Whitwer.
Leona Medlock, Bertha Terry and Marjorie Welch had quite a fright when they went to the Morgan Store on Saturday. It seems Penny decorated for Halloween and some of those decorations were a bit scary.
Saturday was the day of the annual Tractor Drive. Farmers on their tractors went from Conway to Rader, over to Morgan on Orchid road and then back to Conway. It is quite a sight to see.
