Hot! Hot! Hot!

Good Morning Everyone,
  I hope that you all are having a good week so far! As I said in the title for today's blog...the temperatures for this week are going to be hot hot hot!! Yesterday it got to 107 degrees here in Willow Springs, Missouri. Whew! According to the weatherman we shouldn't expect temperatures to drop below 100 all week long. But we should have some cloud cover, and scattered showers every now and then. Tomorrow is the Willow Springs Farmer's Market opening at 7:30 a. m. at the Booster Field. Stop in and check out their selection of home grown fruits and vegetables! Next Monday August 6th is the last chance for students to get their physicals to be able to participate in school sports. Physicals will start at 8 a. m. in the Munford Gym. And don't forget that school starts back for Willow Springs on August 15th!! If you or someone you know is wanting to move to the area we have a nice 35 acre piece of land in Pomona, Missouri that has a seasonal creek. This would be close to town while still having all the comforts and privacy of living in the country. To look at this parcel and see what else we have to offer, please check out our website.

Happy Monday!

Good Morning Everyone,
   I hope you had a great weekend! It doesn't look like we are going to get any relief from this heat anytime soon. The forecast is in the 100's for the rest of the week. So keep your grass and those gardens watered. These hot temperatures do not make being outside much fun...unless your swimming or doing something on the water to stay cool. The Willow Springs Water Park is open Monday through Saturday 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is $3.50 per person, except on Tuesdays and Thursdays admission is only $2.00 per person. This Wednesday at the Booster Field here in Willow Springs the Farmers Market will be open at 7:30 a.m. This is a great place to get fresh, home grown fruits and vegetables. I hope that everyone has a great week this week! If you or anyone you know is looking for a piece of property...come check out our website and see what we have to offer you!!

Monday Again Already?!

Hello Everyone,
   I hope that you had a good weekend. I had a good weekend, but wish that it could last longer! It looks like the weather here in Missouri is going to be back up in the 90's this week, but there is a chance for a short shower this afternoon. Skyfire 2012 was postponed early in July, but has now been re-scheduled to take place July 28th. "Dates and times for the event will stay the same: Gates will open at the airport at 5:30 PM, and live music, featuring finalists from the regional semifinals of the Texaco Country Showdown, will start at 6 PM. Other events scheduled for Skyfire include a fly-over at 6:30 PM, and an aviation expo by MPA and EAA from 7-8 PM. Fireworks will commence at dark.
In the past, the event has been held at the West Plains Regional Airport with a variety of games, activities, and vendors. The cost in previous years was by donation, however, to help defer the rising cost of fireworks, an admission charge of $1 per person will be charged. Children who can comfortably fit in a car seat will be admitted for free. For more information on Skyfire, call the Ozark Radio Network at 417-256-3131." (http://ozarkareanetwork.com/localnews/?p=4953) Tomorrow there will be a ribbon cutting ceremony, for the new Farmer's Insurance Office in Willow Springs at 123 East Main St. This will take place at 1 p.m. Also, the annual Willow Springs athletic physicals will take place tomorrow at 8 a. m. The physicals are for any Willow Springs student participating in athletics or cheerleading in grades 7-12. Insurance, consent, citizenship and drug testing forms will be available on the physical dates. Athletes will not be allowed to practice or participate without the proper forms being signed and turned in. If you miss these physicals...there will be another one taking place August 6th at 8 a.m. Things are starting to get busy again, with school starting right around the corner. Hope that everyone has a great week!!

Halfway There

Good Morning Everyone,
   Hope that you are having a great day so far! The temperatures here in Missouri have been pretty nice this week. We are staying in the lower 90's which is much better than the 100's we had last week!! There was actually some fog out in some places this morning. Also, don't forget that today at the Booster Field in Willow Springs is the Farmer's Market. I am sure that you will be able to find a lot of good quality home grown fruits and vegetables. Once again, be safe if you are having to work outdoors today. Make sure and stay hydrated and try to work in the shade when possible. Hope that you have a great rest of the week!

The Start of a New Week

Hello Everyone,
   Hope you had a great weekend. I know that I really enjoyed the rain that we got here in Willow Springs yesterday. We were in dire need of it that is for sure. This week temperatures are supposed to be a little more bearable and in the 80's. I am looking forward to getting out of those 100 degree temps for a while. For anyone interested in getting fresh, home grown produce, the Willow Springs Farmer's market will be open Wednesday July 11th at 7:30 a.m. at the Booster Field. And if you or anyone you know is looking for a piece of land near the river as well as close to town, we have a 1.5 acre parcel that is only a mile from Birch Tree, Mo and close to many rivers and springs! To find out more about this parcel and to see what else we have to offer, come visit our website. I hope that everyone has a great week and stays cool in these hot temperatures!

Happy Thursday

Hello Everyone,
   I hope that you had a great time celebrating the 4th of July yesterday with friends and family. I know that I had a very good day filled with lots of food and fun! Please keep in mind though, that if you purchased fireworks to be very very cautious when setting them off. Because it is still extremely dry out there, and we don't want to start any forest fires! The temperatures have still been in the 100's for the week, I know that today in Willow Springs, Mo it was 102 degrees. So remember that if you have to be outside, to stay hydrated, drink plenty of water, wear sunscreen, and try to be in the shade as much as you can. Also, if you are looking for a piece of property that is near the lake, so that you can enjoy some fun summer activities....we have a 9.5 acre parcel near the Lake of the Ozarks. If you would like to learn more about this property, and see what else we have available check out our website. Hope you have a great weekend!!

Independence Day Festivities

Good Morning Everyone,
    Sorry about the delay in my blog posts. The holiday being in the middle of the week sort of has my schedule all out of whack. I hope that everyone is having a great July so far. I wanted to let you know about some of the festivities that are going to be happening around the area. As of last Friday Skyfire, which is located in Pomona has been postponed til a later date due to the extremely dry temperatures. But in Willow Springs, J-Lo's pool hall will be having a fireworks display starting at 9 p.m. There  are supposed to vendors and a band earlier in the evening. There is also the Fourth of July parade in Willow Springs starting around 10 a.m. going down Main Street, with fireworks at dusk at the City Park. There is going to be a big festival in Eminence tomorrow, at the "old" City Park. Mountain Grove is also having fireworks at the Mountain Grove Baptist Church at 6 p.m. tomorrow evening.  Festivities for the 4th in Cabool, Mo have been cancelled due to everything being so dry. I hope that everyone has a good and safe holiday!
