Glassmen Drum & Bugle Corps to visit Minonk

On Wednesday, June 27th the Glassmen Drum & Bugle Corps based out of Toledo, OH will be in Minonk again to rehearse their summer show for DCI competitions throughout the country. They will be out at the football field in the afternoon running sectionals, drill and their show. Anyone is welcome to come out to listen and watch. It's always a treat to have a world-class drum corps come to our community!


Eva Davis turns 90

Hi Dave! My Mother Eva Davis will turn 90 on June 28th. Is it possible to place in the attached picture with a note that let's everyone know that she is 90 and if anyone wants they can send her a birthday card? Mother is with her great grandson Brody Davis. Her address is:

Eva Davis
Wexford Place
6500 North Cosby Ave. Apt.#363
Kansas City, Mo. 64151

Mom is doing well and she would not be all that happy about me doing this so that gives you an idea that she still has a lot of spunk. Even though I am 65 I hope she doesn't ground me! On her birthday we are going to go to the casino and then out for dinner!

To the Mayor and City Council

On the issue of Betty and Vern Barth's water bill that was brought up before the council not once - but THREE times, not one of you had any discussion on the matter or even brought it up for a vote, you all just sat there. Shame on all of you !!! I think you all should go to Springfield, you're their kind of politicians !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Happy Birthday Wishes


I was looking at the Minonk Talk website this morning and noted that one of the events for today is your birthday. Betty and I extend our best wishes to you for a very happy birthday, many more and a wonderful year ahead.

I recently watched the video of the demolition of the buildings that were destroyed by the fire last year and in a way it was sad for me because all of the buildings had special memories for me.

I have also been looking more in depth at various photos, newspaper articles, etc. on the site and I feel you have accomplished a great deal and we think it is wonderful that you place so much time and dedication to the work you do.

I appreciate all you have done and I will continue to regularly browse the website for new information.

Thank you for a job VERY WELL DONE!!.
