    Director, Quilt Museum
    The Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday, July 7, at the Levy County Quilt Museum. Fellowship is always great each Thursday. We visit with each other, catch up on each others activities, doctor visits, latest projects and vacations. We learn of sick friends that need to be added to the prayer list and are so thankful for everyone who comes to meet each week.
      Greg and six boys were out Tuesday and as we have had rain the grass is green and growing.  The flowers are so pretty and blooming. Thanks Lancaster.

  • Special to the Citizen
    Haven Hospice volunteer Shellie Shelton truly embodies the meaning of care and compassion.
    Shelton drives Haven patient Mary Wardlaw from Bronson to Chiefland and back every month to shop at Walmart. Shelton helps Wardlaw move about the store and pull items from the top shelf, as Wardlaw is unable. Shelton and Wardlaw enjoy the travel time together and have found they have a lot in common. Wardlaw would not be able to do her monthly shopping it if wasn’t for Haven on Wheels.

  • I didn’t know a mufflerless station wagon could pass an eighteen wheeler on one of those interstate loops, but at fourteen, I reckon I didn’t know a lot of things. I DID know if I wanted to see fifteen I’d better get “Drunken Yee-Haw man” to let me out of his hot-rod.

  •    Suwannee Valley Players is proud to announce the opening of the Summer Youth Workshop production of Pollyanna, adapted by Susan Pargman, and produced by special arrangement with Pioneer Drama Service, Inc., Englewood, Colo. This is the delightful, classic tale of the greatest optimist of all time: Pollyanna. But it's much more than that. It's the story of how a little girl's faith in her father's promise that  good can be found in anything that happens guides her steadfastly through circumstances that most adults would find formidable.
