New Madison News: Good food is on the horizon


It was a super end to basketball as March madness slipped into the history books for Villanova’s men and Connecticut’s women. Then the surprise of the Reds charging out to win the opening day game. Here is hoping for a better year than last season’s disappointing record and dare we hope for a much better year than widely predicted. Ah the sounds and smells of a ballpark.

The choice of good food is coming to town.

On Saturday, the American Legion is sponsoring a country-fried chicken dinner. This meal includes mashed potatoes and buttered corn for $7. Serving will begin at 5 p.m.

The United Methodist Church will have chicken pot pie on Saturday, beginning at 4:30. This menu will have mashed potatoes and homemade salads and desserts. A free will offering will be taken.

The New Madison Public Library has a new website: The site will keep patrons up to the minute on activities for all age groups.

Everyone hates the exodus of the local Masonic Lodge. This group has been responsible for helping many community projects and the meals were always special with lots of familiar faces enjoying the good food. A part of New Madison history has closed.

Runners in town keep the annual 5K race at the United Methodist Church in mind. The number of runners has increased yearly and it is scheduled on the first Saturday in June (4th). Mark the calendars and plan ahead for fun and fitness right here in your own town. School students are encouraged to run. More information will follow! All proceeds are used for local charitable causes.

This weeks congrats go to:

• Richard Kasunic on his 85th birthday! The former pastor of the United Methodist Church is a member of the local congregation. He and wife June have been involved in the music program for many years. A card shower is underway to cheer Richard who is recuperating at their home in Greenville.

• Dutch Malott, former Tri-Village student. He will receive his degree from Ohio Northern University on

May 8.
