Life is not meant to be lived forever. However, some deaths hit us harder than others. Maybe because we will miss the quick smile, the loving support and interest in our lives, or maybe because we get used to seeing their friendly face at lunch or at church.

Helen Peters, 91, passed away Saturday. She was a bright light to her family, church and community. Services will be held today, Thursday, June 26, 9 a.m. at the graveside, 10 a.m. at the Albin Baptist Church, and a light lunch offered by the Albin Baptist Church at the Albin Community Center. If you would like to remember Helen with a donation, you can send them to the Davis Hospice Center or the Albin Baptist Church.

Mildred Eklund also passed away last week. As you recall, her husband, John Sr., died not long ago. Theirs was a love made in heaven and now they can continue that one of a kind relationship.

Our thoughts and prayers for peace and treasured memories to guide the two families through this transitional time.

Life goes on, as we all know too well. In the mess of life, we forgot to wish Jillian McLaughlin a very happy birthday. Jillian is the kind of person to always have a birthday cake for others. We hope someone baked a birthday cake for her last week.

The Albin Day committee met Monday night. It was too late to get a proper report from them. However, the plans for the day are moving right along. The Burns FFA is hosting the breakfast and lunch that day, and Fred Woods will prepare the supper before the night show. The day kicks off with the breakfast from 8 a.m. until 9:30 a.m., kiddie parade at 9:30 a.m., grand parade at 10 a.m.; races and kids events will start after the parade. The Burns FFA will start serving lunch at noon and the arts and craft fair goes from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. The water fights which are always a big wet hit start at 1 p.m. Bingo and the softball tournament will start at 2 and 3 p.m. The evening events start with supper at 5:30 p.m. followed by the night show, fireworks and a dance.

The Albin Town Council met last week. The architects for the addition on the community center submitted their plans. Once these are approved, it will go out for bid, probably sometime next month. In other business, the town is applying for a grant to purchase two generators; one for the community center and one for the well. This grant is through FEMA. The company completing the sprinkler system told the council the system should be done this summer.

The Albin Wildcats are still slugging through the season. They were on the road this week with two away games. They will be at home Monday evening. Stop by the ball field for some great baseball action and a concession stand dinner. Who can beat dinner and a game right in your home town?
