Mayer News

All City Garage Sales

I am asking all of you who held a garage sale last weekend in Mayer to please call me with your feedback on this annual event. I’m interested to know how your sale was and for you to give me some input of what we can change for next year. I understand that nobody had a "good" sale, mostly because of the seven or so other towns having their sales the same weekend. Can we do our sale at an earlier time, or should we try an all-city fall garage sale weekend? Call me at 657-2128. I am anxious to hear from many of you. Hopefully we can keep this going in the future. Many have already told me they would not have their sale in the all-city sales.

LHS Rummage Sale

The annual Mayer Lutheran High School rummage sale will be held on June 19-21 this year. I will print the hours in next week’s news.

Congratulations Graduates

The community wishes to congratulate all graduates of Mayer. This includes students graduating from primary school, kindergarten, eighth grade, high school, college and wherever else our students have attended. This is a big step for all of you. Good luck to you in the future.

Senior Citizens to Meet

The Mayer Senior pot luck will be held on Monday, June 4, at the Mayer Community Center on Blue Jay Avenue. Bring a dish of food to share to place on the banquet table. Bring a friend to share it with. The meal will be served at 11:30 a.m. with the game of Bunco to be played until departure time, which is usually 1:30 p.m. There are no dues to pay; plan on having a fun time and meeting new friends.

New Babies in town

I have been informed of the many new babies in our town. They are not human babies, but are goslings and ducklings in the water in the pond on West Ridge Road. Take time for your daily stroll in the early morning and you will be bound to see them with their parents. During the day, they are in hiding, but early morning or late evening you should be able to see them. The parents are Canadian geese and Mallard ducks.
