Monte and Linda Stum went to Denver with their daughter, Kami Janes, and family over the weekend. Chris Janes attended a conference, and the rest of the family did fun things.
Katarina Fenr's sister and family had their mobile home, which was located several miles south of Plainview School, destroyed in the bad storm we received Wednesday evening. The oldest daughter was seriously hurt but she is doing better now. Thankfully none of the rest of the family had any serious injuries. The Towner area was hard hit with hail that broke windows in homes and cars that same evening. Not much left of any gardens or flowers.
Saturday evening, Vern and Joann Harris went to Granada to help Brecken Thrall celebrate her second birthday. Brecken is the daughter of Tyler and Megan Thrall. Lots of other family and friends attended the celebration. Happy birthday, Brecken.
Merle and Carol Shalberg attended the rodeo at the Sand and Sage Fair in Lamar Saturday evening. The big rain just before the rodeo made for some interesting events due to the muddy arena. Sunday, Merle and Carol hosted a birthday dinner for their son Steve. Guests were Greg and Penni Shalberg and boys and Bill and Charlotte Woelk. Happy Birthday Steve!
Around 200 family and friends gathered at Splitter Farms Saturday morning to attend the outdoor wedding of Alyssa Splitter of Sheridan Lake and Eli Jones of Wiley.
