Peggy Spencer, (the former Peggy Jean Armstrong) is turning 100 this Saturday, July 18, 2020. She grew up in Butler, living with her parents, Sam and Virginia Armstrong, and Virginia’s mother, Nannie Lampton, in a little house on Main Street. The home was a few blocks from the Armstrong Brother’s store on Main Street. As a young girl she and her friends would pretend to be mannequins sitting on the furniture in the store windows. She had a sister, Ann, 5 years younger. They lived at other homes in Butler – the right half of a duplex at 6 North High Street, and the house at 502 Ft. Carson Street.
From Appleton City Mayor Kinleigh Preston:
The Bates County Health Center has confirmed another positive case of COVID-19 in Bates County.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Children’s Center will be unable to host our 2020 Casino Night fundraiser that had been rescheduled to August 29, 2020. Our local Children’s Center Advisory Board and Executive Board have had countless discussions throughout the past few months and feel this is the most safe, responsible path to take.
