Trella Hemmerly – 1999-10-21

Thursday October 21st
Took 22 DBY with me for the participants in the 1999 Marion Leadership Training class. Heard part of Randy Winland slideshow of his Marion postcard collection of over twelve hundred cards! Gave my “How We Came to Be” talk and lots of good feedback. David (history professor at Heidelberg) introduced me as Trella Romine whose name is synonymous with Marion County History! Stopped at Hemmerly’s with Campbell’s Candy and assorted a box for Christmas gifts. Home by 12 and Royce and I brought yard sale stuff from attic and started setting up garage. Mowed lawn. Took a nap. Call from Altha Sifritt (George- class of 1933) just in from Manchester New Hampshire 900 miles invited them out for dessert with Mary and me. Lots of WWII Seabees memories D-Day invasion. They left about 8 just when David called. Whole family will be up about 8:30 p.m. tomorrow. I’m beat.
