May 18 Dora News

By Charlie Carmichael

The Dora and Rogers areas were thankful for the half inch or so of moisture over the weekend. It sure was a blessing instead of dust and breezy weather. I don’t know if our dry land farmers will have enough to plant some on or they will need to wait.
The wheat in this area should be ready for harvest soon, usually in the early part of June.

The Dora Baptist Church presented white bibles to our members who will be graduating from high school this year. Three are from Dora — Marilyn Prewett, Jana Bilberry and D’Shawn Pettigrew — and one is from Elida, Amber Cathey. These girls are all ready to step into the future of higher education.

These are to be here today. They will be available for you to come get (after they get here) until about 5:30 p.m. If we don’t run out, I will come Thursday morning from 9 a.m. until 11 a.m. They will not be available again until June. So be sure to come or make arrangements for someone else to get yours for you.

There are a few cases of sniffles, coughs, sore throats, etc. going around in the area. Not just children, but all ages. I think if this weather levels off it will be a thing of the past for most.

The Dora Senior graduation will be Friday evening in the Luscombe Gymnasium at 7 p.m. A reception will follow in the lobby sponsored by the Gear-up staff.
