About Town with LaVern Johnson - May 28, 2015

All turned out well at the Lyons High School graduation last Saturday morning with thirty-nine seniors receiving their diplomas. Although the ceremony was held in the gym due to soggy conditions on the football field, they made it. Five of the twelve Co-Valedictorians ((Jeanna Anderson, Kate Berreman, Zach Chaney, Matthew Dillon, Savannah Drotar, Brian Flynn, Alyson Lhungay, Faith Myers, Mikayla

Another week gone by, some nice days, but it’s still raining. We are susceptible to uncomfortable memories, and although the river rose to over 1400 cubic feet per second, it was much, much higher during the flood! True, it is scary, though.

Another week gone by, and a rainy one at that, with two inches of rain in April (however, the most was in 1876 with 8.7 inches in April). The flowers, lilac trees, and spirea are beautiful. “It is springtime in the Rockies.”

A tumultuous week has gone by, and now the sun is shining. All that rain over several days had us on edge.

The Lyons History Video shindig was cancelled due to the storm. They thank all for the silent auction items, and are looking to reschedule

Yes, another week gone by, and what a good rain. As it was really pouring down, it was very scary. Reminding of us of the September 2013 flood (it was the most rain since the flood). I was actually glad when it stopped! We can see the pastures and hills green up right before our eyes! Spring has sprung!
