Euchre Tournament, Feb. 12

Anticipation Builds; Major Announcement Postponed

Ricketts Community Club member Nancy Landon explains the delay.
A special meeting had been planned for Saturday, January 28 to announce major developments which will directly effect Ricketts as well as the neighboring communities of Charter Oak and Ute. Unfortunately an emergency in the family of one of the principal participants in the program to be revealed made it impossible for them to attend.

Another special meeting of the Community Club's Board will be held in the next two weeks and another Special Town Hall Meeting at the Community Center will take place within the next month to make the plans public.

Congratulations Carlsons!

Lloyd & Elaine Carlson were recognized with the annual Ricketts Leadership Award at the Ricketts Community Center, Sunday, January 15, 2012. The Carlsons have served Ricketts in the Community Club, the LWML, various church boards, Cub Scouts and the Volunteer Fire Department. Lloyd operated the LLL Grocery Store in Ricketts for many years.

The Carlsons married after each had been widowed. Their children from each's previous marriages serenaded them with a custom version of the old 'Brady Bunch' TV show theme, 'The Carlson Bunch.' Scores of well wishers joined them at the annual Ricketts Leadership Brunch where the Community Club served pancakes, French toast, sausages, coffee and treats.
