Haley Banks celebrated her 11th birthday with some of her school friends: Abby Meade, Jenna Roark, Hailey Cornett, Madison Crase, and Brooke Sturgill. The party’s theme was ‘Breaking Dawn.’ They had a great time. Most of the girls spent the night and were still up at 3 a.m. Haley’s cousin, sixyear old Kyle Galer, called and sang ‘Happy Birthday’ to her.

Kenny Harvey and his grandson, Peyton, had a good adventure at Fishtrap Lake. They caught a lot of fish, though they had to break through the ice to get them. While there, they saw two majestic eagles sitting on a treetop and later flying over the lake. They also saw five graceful deer swimming across the lake. Great lifetime memories for a grandchild.
