The Tyler Romyn benefit on Saturday night was a huge success. A sold-out crowd was on hand at the Devlin Hall, with many people purchasing tickets but unable to attend due to limited seating.
Thanks to all the organizers, beef farmers, businesses, and private donations. Once again proof that our community pulls together to make this district one to be proud to part of!

Robin’s 2¢
Three women—two younger and one senior citizen—were sitting naked in a sauna. Suddenly there was a beeping sound.
The young woman pressed her forearm and the beep stopped. The others looked at her questioningly.
“That was my pager,” she said. “I have a microchip under the skin of my arm.”
A few minutes later, the phone rang. The second young woman lifted her palm to her ear.
When she finished, she explained, “That was my mobile phone. I have a microchip in my hand.”
The older woman felt very low-tech. But not to be outdone, she decided she had to do something just as impressive.
She stepped out of the sauna and went to the bathroom. She returned with a piece of toilet paper hanging from her rear end.
The others raised their eyebrows and stared at her.
The older woman turned and said, “Well, will you look at that . . . I’m getting a fax!”
