CANADIAN PHYSICIAN Sir William Osler opined, "No bubble is so iridescent or floats longer than that blown by the successful teacher."
His remark fits Margaret Haugh of Calvary Evangelical Lutheran Church in Lisbon.
After 34 years as a Sunday school teacher for Calvary, Haugh, known as Miss Margaret, retired from her Sunday school duties in June.
Church members honored her at a festive celebration, which she called a "joyous day." She claims to have had many helping hands in her endeavor.
"When I look into the faces of Calvary's little and young ones, I see hope for a brighter, better world tomorrow," she said.
Church member Carol Merton created a beautiful Noah's Ark quilted wall hanging in "Miss Margaret's" honor, to hang in the church's kindergarten classroom.
Buffalo, apple tour
In the fall, you'll be glad you made a reservation for a trip to Bedford, Pa., with the Howard County Homemakers.
The group will travel to Bedford on Oct. 24 to visit a buffalo ranch and an apple orchard.
Beverly Green is taking reservations for the trip. She promises that Johnny Appleseed will board the bus and visit with the group before the bus makes its way down Gravity Hill, an unusual stretch of highway where gravity takes over and drivers don't have to use the accelerator.
Lunch and entertainment are included in the $42 price of the trip. Take spending money.
Green will arrange to have the bus pick up passengers in Normandy or Lisbon. Call Green at 489-4527 for more information. Make reservations by Aug. 1.
