PLEASE SCROLL DOWN A COUPLE MESSAGES TO LEARN ABOUT COMING EVENTS ON THESE DAYS.

I had saved the message in draft folder until I verified several facts. Smart old computer posted the message for the day I started it instead of when I posted it.

Just goes to show -you can't fool the computer!!



Anyway- we hope to have some community activities at the Lindley Town Hall on these days. More as we plan the events!

Those we love remain with us For love itself lives on, And cherished memories never fade Because a loved one's gone. Those we love can never be More than a thought apart, Far as long as there is memory, They'll live on in the heart.

On Thursday 3/25/2010 , Durland Weale - who grew up in Lindley gave a program " Downtown Lindley "describing what the hamlet of Lindley was like in the 1920's/30's for the Lindley/Presho Historical Society.
As usual, his program was interesting and informational. Hopefully, he will share more memories with the group in the future.
