If you hadn’t noticed, the rain, heat and humidity have been encouraging the growth of our plant life. Mowing needs to be done about every other day. So please contribute to the cemetery funds. Pell Cemetery has one at City National Bank in Metropolis. Make the check out to Pell Cemetery Fund. Let’s honor our loved ones.

Maybe if everyone follows the guidelines of avoiding crowds, wearing masks, washing hands frequently and keeping distance between our fellow man, we might be able to contain the virus and someday be normal again.

Stay safe.
