Wednesday, June 23, was a big day for Mickie Edmisson Williams! She and Sid Williams celebrated their 43rd Wedding Anniversary, and Mickie held the grand opening of her new business venture. 

M. Tootsie's Boutique and Gifts, located in downtown Philadelphia, has been Mickie's project for several months.  She has been so busy planning and ordering stock for her shop. It seemed like a perfect date to officially open M. Tootsie's. Their anniversary was a special way to commemorate another fantastic date in her life. Congratulations and best wishes for many more years together and best of luck with your new boutique!

Thaggard Farms in Madden recently completed its annual "Horse Camp" which is not for horses, but young people who are interested in improving or learning new horseback riding skills. Many of the campers are cutting horse riders and belong to the Junior National Cutting Horse Association.

There are many different activities which the campers enjoy on horseback including some pond gymnastics from the back of a horse. It was hard work, but so much fun! A T-shirt with the name of the camp across the back became a favorite clothing item. Among those attending were Taylor Allen, Lane Deweese, and Annie Kate White.
