Jim and Jean Murry had a cookout July 1. Mike and Sue Murry of Beckley, W.V., were honored guests. There were 24 family members from Springfield, Mo., Lee’s Summit, Mo., Eudora, McLouth and Gardner. Mike and Sue went from here to Salina to visit Sue’s folks. They are now back home.
I have a new great-grandson, Kaleb Dean Siefkas, born July 6 at Allen County Hospital in Iola. His parents are Rhiannon Mooberry and Ryan Siefkas of Iola.
