Once again, the 4th of July fireworks display; potluck dinner, parade and tribute to our flag ceremony were a huge success at the K A Hall in Sheridan Lake. A large crowd of community members, bicyclers and harvest hands enjoyed the evenings activities. A big thanks to everyone who made it possible.
Harvest is back in full swing again and most everyone is happy about the high yields, but not the price. I can remember years ago when we would have been in seventh heaven for the yields and the price. Such is farming!
So everyone knows, there will be a Wedding Shower for Vincent Koeller and his bride, Victoria, a few weeks after the wedding. Will keep you posted when we have a date and time.
My sister Jerene DeBono brought our mom, Mary Huddleston to Towner on Thursday so she could watch her wheat being harvested.
Cora Coffman and Susan Greenfield traveled to LaJunta on Saturday to do some shopping and eat out.
Leonel and Kyler Ibarra of Dodge City, KS and Larry Poore of Woodston, KS are here helping Hopkins's with the harvest.
David Richardson spent Tuesday through Friday helping his folks, Jim and MaryAnn, do some chores around their place.
Guests of Bill and Charlotte Woelk for supper on Saturday evening were: Merle and Carol Shalberg; Ed Carrigan; Char Korrel and her daughter Carli and husband Joel and their children and Char's son Caleb. Caleb is in the Navy and is being shipped out to Africa for a year's tour.
It is quiet around our house -- Kyle and Breeanna went home to spend a couple of weeks with their folks. Mark will bring them back when he comes for his class reunion. The classes of 85, 86, and 87 will be gathering at the home of Dick and Sharon Scott on July 23rd. Anyone wishing to see and visit with them are welcome to come by that afternoon.
Short and sweet this week - everybody is still busy with harvest.
