Positively Parish News – Week of April 5, 2013

Get well wishes are extended to Haiden Fullmer and John Piseski.

My condolences are extended to the family and friends of Dawn M. Drought of Fulton; Anita Seely Coe of Parish and Ronald G. Wing of Central Square.

On March 24 Chet and Gretchen Sayer attended the second year birthday party for Briar Paterson at her grandparents, Jim and Connie Shovlin Sayer’s home in Oneida.

Briar is the daughter of Sean and Kara (Shovlin) Paterson.

On March 31, the Sayer family was at Kara’s for Easter dinner.

Sean’s family was there as well.

Ed and Roe Goetz are starting to wind down with their winter trek to Florida.

It has been quite the adventure.

On March 30, they pulled out of Water’s Edge MotorCoach Resort on the east side of Lake Okeechobee and it took about a half hour to arrive at their new place Turtle Cove on the west side of the lake.

They will miss that other park, but it was almost too quiet and a distance from getting to town (18 miles) versus this side only six miles.

We did like sitting at the Cheekie Hut right on the water and fishing from it…our total catch Eddie – one sunfish, lost three tackle setups and four mosquito bites; Ro – three sunfish, lost four tackle setups and to numerous mosquito bites to count!

This campground is nice…about 75 sites, mostly park model homes.

Everyone was so nice and welcomed us.

We fit right in with their craziness….can you imagine that?

Went to Clermont yesterday to have lunch with cousins at the Oakwood Grill and Smokehouse.

Excellent ribs, had a great time visiting with them.

So see y’all (a southern thing) soon.

Ro, Eddie and Lola…On the road
