Byron news Cline benefit set for Feb. 27 GARY GRUELL 548-2220 Since Marie and Cam- eron bought the Byron Bar nearly four years ago they have generoulJj0vided community eventS, usually at no cost, in ar["&ttempt to involve everyone within By- ron and our surrounding neighbors. The Byron Bar is host- ing a benefit dinner and auction for Mark Cline on Saturday, Feb. 27, begin- ning with a dinner at 5:30 p.m. followed by an auc- tion. As this is a fundrais- er, the dinner will cost $10 per plate and will consist of roasted pig or chicken with all the fixings. If you would like to donate item(s) for the auction, drop them off at the Byron Bar beginning next week. Mark Cline of Frannie was seriously injured last fall when he was thrown from a horse. His injury resulted in paralysis, al- though lately it has been re- ported that he is beginning to have some "pain feeling" in his legs. He does have the use of both of his arms and is working hard on his phys- ical therapy. All of the pro- ceeds from the benefit will go directly to the Cline fam- ily to help defray the over- whelming medical cost and to assist in other expenses: Normally this time of the year I start promoting the Lions Club annual auc- tion, which has been held during the month of March in recent years. This year, the club has announced that the auction will be held toward the end of April. The change of time is an attempt to have better weather in hopes of having the doors open to minimize the effects of smoking, and to have the larger items for auction out- side. At last week's town council meeting a spokes- man for the Veterans Park Committee addressed the council about the Amber Alert sign that was to be in- stalled in the corner of the park sometime next month. The committee was con- cerned that the presence of the modern sign may take away the effect of the not yet completed park. The coun- cil and Police Chief Rohrer agreed. After a brief discus- sion it was decided to have the sign moved to a more central location. Frankie talked with,' Rocky Moun- tain High School Princi- pal Tim Winland about the possibility of installing the new sign where the current school marquis is located. Mr. Winland was in favor of it and said he would clear it through the superintendent and school board. Town Hall was closed to the general public on Presi- dents Day. The purpose for the closure was to conduct an inventory and labeling of all contents of the complex building, excluding the mu- seum, which is being done by Harriet Jackson at her leisure. This past Friday, the monthly Mayor's Luncheon was held. Thank you to the Meier, Dean, McGee, Brightly and Rausch fami- lies for providing the tasty soups and desserts. Mrs. Brightly did the menu sign and with her artistic tal- ent, she has been volun- teered to provide the menus in the future. Next month's luncheon will be on March 12. Sign-up sheets for soup providers for March and April are at the town hall. As of last week only one has signed up for March. All of this week, Milton and Vicki are in Cheyenne attending the WAM Con- ference. Vicki will be back in the office next Monday. In her absence, Janice has been conducting business as usual. Last Friday, RMHS played their last varsity basketball games at the RMHS Gymnasium. They hosted the Greybull Buffs. The Lady Grizz won and the boys lost. It is ironic that the first game in 1937 and the last game resulted in losses for the local teams. In between those losses, lit- erally hundreds of games were played that put to the test the talented or not so talented youths that not only demonstrated sports- manship but provided en- tertainment to all in atten- dance. As always, have a great and safe week.

Trevor and Kelsey were married in the Idaho Falls Temple and a dinner for the family was held at the Hilton Garden Inn in Idaho Falls after the ceremony. Trevor is the son of Rusty and Kelly Jane Townsend and Addison and Michelle Sovine and Kelsey is the daughter of Christopher and Tiffany Montgomery and Kimber- ly and Michael Johnson. There were many friends and relatives there from both sides of the family. Those traveling from this area were grandparents Tim and Jerrie Townsend, great-grandmother Eva Green of Lovell, Aunt Di- ane Ley of Powell and Ran- dy 'and Dione Townsend and family of Worland. Elder Robert Jordan Welch has arrived in the Big Horn Basin to serve the last four months of his LDS mission. He is the son of Curtis and Kassie Welch of Provo, Utah, and his grandparents are Mike and Ellen Yorgason Welch ofSnellville, Ga. His great- grandmother is Thelma Yorgason, who turned 100 years old this year, and his great-grandfather is the late Robert Yorgason, who was Cowley's superinten- dent for many years. His paternal great-grandpar- ents are the late Ford and Ruth Welch, who lived in Cowley all their married lives and raised their chil- dren in Cowley. Mike and Ellen both graduated from Cowley High School, lived their childhood and high school years in our small com- munity and both have many relatives still living here. Robert said he has known his uncle Rodney and Mary Yorgason for some time, has met many of his Welch relatives and is excited to learn about his family and roots from the Big Horn Basin. He's becoming more interested in his genealogy and it is a pleasure to welcome him as he introduces himself to this place of his fore- bears. Senior center chatter Lunch & Learn is Feb. 25 Newcomer's Club is in the news first this week. The "card club has met twice recently.

When the group met again last week, Thursday, Feb. 11, Marilyn Revelle wowed fellow bridge play- ers with the highest score. In pinochle, Caroline Boltz again snatched" the high- est score, although Linda Spragg came in a close sec- ond with two moon shoot- ers and one lay-down. The club meets again for fun, food and cards next week, Feb. 25. In other news, the se- nior center will be hosting a "Lunch and Learn" session on Wednesday, Feb. 25.
