The first of a number of garden areas planned on the Ringgold county courthouse square took shape Monday when nine
members of the Mount Ayr Community Future Farmers of America chapter planted over 1.100 marigolds in an area around
the statue on the courthouse law. The project is the beginning of the Scottish gardens plan to beautify the downtown
area in Mount Ayr and was planned as a project of the newly formed scottish heritage society.
Rev. John J. BIDDLE, new pastor of the Mount Ayr Assembly of God church, and his wife, Bessie, recently moved to Mount Ayr.
Mr. and Mrs. Gary SOBOTKA and Rachel, one month, have been welcomed to Mount Ayr by MARC '85 newcomer representative, Mrs.
J. H. EDDY. The SOBOTKAS live at 707 East Adams, having moved here from Bellevue. Gary is a fisheries technician and
Darla will teach special education pupils in the Diagonal schools. They are United Presbyterians.
Mount Ayr may soon have three financial institutions again, if the application made this week by First State Bank of
Diagonal and Shannon City is approved. First State Bnk made application June 4 to move its main office from Diagonal to
Mount Ayr. The bank would be located in the building at 100 E. South Street, formerly occupied by Tingley State Savings
Bank and then used by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, according to bank president A. B. WISSINK.
