Tan trio: Lisa Perham, left, Norma Crow and Lori Montgomery soak up some Arizona sunshine.

Lori Montgomery, Lisa Perham and Dorothy Thompson returned Feb. 9 from a week in the sunny state of Arizona.

Lori and Lisa visited their parents, Jim and Norma Crow, who are in Mesa for the month.

They also visited snowbirds Harry and Marian Crull for an afternoon.

Dorothy visited her son Todd, wife Karen and five grandchildren in the Phoenix area.

Weather in the upper 70s helped them recover from our Illinois winter.

They spent their time hiking in the desert, attending the Arizona Opry, shopping at the Mesa Swap Meet and soaking up the sun by the pool.


Joe Boyer left Chillicothe with many memories and printed his stamp on the community.

In his later years, he donated funds toward various community efforts, such as major funds for the Chillicothe Park District to purchase the former Neighborhood House just north of town.

He also gave money for trees lining the new Sixth Street entrance at Chillicothe City Cemetery, a project of the Cemetery Enhancement Committee.

The Chillicothe Public Library also received assistance from Boyer.

With no children of his own, he spread his goodwill throughout town and will be sadly missed by those who knew him and his generosity.
