Are you interested in kids Tae Kwon Do on the mountain? Or just interested in kids activities in general? Please fill out this survey: and let us know your kid’s ages, whether they're interested in martial arts, and when would be a good time for activities. We're looking to see if there's enough interest to put together a small class in the fall. Also, if you just want to be in the loop about future kid-specific activities, fill in the survey with your kid’s info and we'll know who to notify about fun events at the Canteen, Studio 276, the Community Center, and more.

AROUND THE HOUSE by Linda Packer Young

My honey and I just learned about my all-class high school reunion on July 9th on the far side of Iowa. We are planning to give The Infirmary (motor home) a workout with a trip there. We figured we’d go early and celebrate the 4th with friends and relatives in Illinois. However, we were almost too late getting reservations at campgrounds for the holiday weekend. Most are completely booked already. My honey spent hours contacting campgrounds along the way before we were finally able to find places to camp.

The all-class reunion will be held in my small home town, Bronson, Iowa. We were lucky enough to be allowed to use the local park for free when we get there. One of my classmates called the mayor and made arrangements. Thanks Mary. When I say small town, my graduating class had 7 girls and 7 boys.


We don’t go out at night very often, but decided to attend the entertainment at the Cedar Mountain Canteen Monday night. It was a “hoot”. The yard was jammed but we lucked out finding a bench right in front of the band. There was a lot of foot stomping, clapping and hooting as the crowd showed their appreciation for Owen Grooms and the Mark Queen band!

Cedar Mountain has become quite the entertainment venue with Studio 276, Back Porch, Out Post and the Canteen all providing us with great entertainment. Check their websites for details.
