Quiet times good for relaxation, family

Things are peaceful in YTR. Not many organized events or fundraisers are occurring now. Residents just seem to be enjoying the low-keyed days of summer. We all need this time to kick back, relax and spend time with family and friends.

Kudos to Coy Sudvary for a successful parachute jump with the Army Golden Knights at Fort Knox. We are sure your grandfather, Mike Sudvary, wore a heavenly smile as you soared in honor of his military service.

Happy Father’s Day to the men of YTR! This is the first Father’s Day without my Dad and I miss him every day. But I will spend this one with peaceful memories of times we spent together, father and daughter, sitting on his back porch, solving the problems of the world!
