Soroptimist Home & Garden Show Memories
Chickens, local food, beautiful quilts, cooking demonstrations, dancing, massage, and did I mention chickens? The 19th annual Soroptimist Home & Garden Show was a rousing success and a great experience for many local organizations and businesses. Held at the Fallon Convention Center this past weekend, and featuring over 40 vendors, the Home & Garden Show provides and opportunity for the community to sample, taste, pummel, and learn about the many opportunities there are in Fallon for entertainment, business, and education.

One of my most favorite stories Paul told dated back to the late 60s or early 70s and it revolved around him killing a deer way out in the mountains. Naturally the deer ran down into a deep canyon and died. Knowing that it would take him forever to haul it out he devised an awesome plan. After preparing the deer he drove back to NAS Fallon and rustled up a SAR crew and they flew out and picked up the deer. Of course it was labeled as a training flight but what the hell in those days you could do that sort of thing. Rest in Peace my friend until we meet again!!Comment publication date: 4/11/24, 1:15 PMComment source: Obituary - LCDR Paul N PflimlinComment author: THughesComment text: So sad to hear.

I remember her fondly from the days of my youth at Northside Elementary, many years ago. She and Mrs. Rowe were my favorite office ladies! I am so sorry to hear of her passing.
