Mount Ayr Record-News
Mount Ayr, Ringgold County, Iowa
Thursday, June 13, 1985

Lisa Wilson, Mount Ayr Record-News

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.
