July 3 rd Family Gathering in Cornland What a wonderful July 4th week- end! Congratulations to Tom Martin and the Mt. Pulaski 175th Anniver- sary Committee for all of your hard work and dedication to this fantastic celebration. With all the activities planned for that week-end, and .since the major- ity of our family graduated from Mt.

Two new members had joined our family since we were together two years ago, one year old Clayton Matthew Shelton whose parents are Matthew and Julie, grand- son to Marcia Meyer, and our first great-grandson. Also, one month old Bailey LeeAnn Clark, daughter of Chad and Shaunda Clark, granddaughter of Wayne and Carla Clark. Being the busy week- end it was some had to leave early to attend their class reunion that night and some had other family gatherings to go to in the evening. We were happy to have some stay to visit more and help us eat all the food left over from Red Book Reminder Don't forget to order the new Mr. PulasM History Book (Red Book) with history flom the last twenty-five years honor- ing the 175th anniver- sary of Mt.
