The community garden is still producing vegetables. A table is set up in front of Westside Ventures at 9:30 on Monday mornings. Donations are accepted for the vegetables.
Ruth Rinderer returned Sunday from a seven day stay at Lac Seul Lodge, on Lac Seul Lake in N.W. Ontario, Canada She traveled with her brother and sister-in-law, Clarence and Kathy Baldridge, Ashland, NE, and Kathy’s sister, Karen Roland of Stuart, NE. Many fish were caught and a meal of Walleye and Northern Pike was enjoyed. The Lodge is owned by Rod and Lorita Zohn of Norway, Ruth’s niece. They are in Canada from April to October. On way to Canada the group stayed in Duluth, MN on Lake Superior. Awesome trip.
Sarah Whitman arrived at her mother’s house Saturday evening. They attended church at the United Church in Bennington. In the afternoon, Bill and Angela arrived to visit. Later in the evening, Sarah and Virginia ventured into the Ottawa County countryside to pinpoint names and places on the Ottawa County map that Sarah remembered as a girl. Perhaps the most entertaining part were the rock outcropping on Kiowa Road, where they saw initials etched in the rocks from many years ago. On that same section, they saw the buffalo monument on the Smith farm and the home of what used to be Virginia’s grandma and grandpa McCready. It was a fun evening.
