Because there were five Mondays in July, it is still a couple weeks until our potluck day on the 14th , but I will give you a heads up about the program. I have watched, over the past several years, the development and use of Ada Hayden Park, in north Ames, and realized that it must have taken years of careful planning to turn a gravel pit into a city park . Then one day I saw in the Tribune that Edwin Klaas was giving a program, at the park, telling about its history and decided I would attend. Just when we were ready to leave Nevada we got a torrential downpour, which canceled my plans. Because I was still interested, I called Mr. Klaas and asked him to share his program with our group during the August potluck. He will tell us how the glacial runoff formed it in the first place, and about several other ideas that were considered before the final decision to turn this gravel mine into the lovely lake that it is today. I hope you will enjoy hearing this little bit of Ames history.

Also for those of you who come to the foot care clinic on the second Tuesday, remember that it comes a little early this month on the 8th from 12:30 till 2 p.m.
