Morning message at the Rockville United Methodist Church was by Dennis Willman entitled “Missouri Gideon Mission,” the passage was from Isaiah 55:11.

Mt. Zion Home Bible study group met in Joela Dains home Tuesday at 7 p.m. with seven present to study the Bible. We meet every 2nd Tuesday at Joela’s home. We will meet next Tuesday at 7 p.m. in the Tom and Beverly Pelkey home. We invite you to join us. Call Tom at 660-598-0477.

June Marshell keeps busy being herself, doing what she does best visiting, shopping and finishing projects.

Tom Pelkey kept his eye appointment, Friday. They enjoyed breakfast out in Clinton.

The Mt. Zion area welcomes the cooler weather. Gardens are still producing.

Dixie Peterson and Marge Zink decided they would go north looking for cooler weather. They made it to Hannibal. They drove through miles of corn fields and a few soybeans. Marge asks Dixie to stop so she could “snitch” a corn ear as she thought she would starve before they found a town, but Dixie didn’t. Finally they came out of the fields in Brunswick. Was worth the wait as they ate in the “neatest” Deli & Ice cream Shop and the town had a quilt shop down the street from the deli. We were informed we needed to go further north like Alaska. We had a great time. And as Missouri weather goes, wait a day and the weather will change and it did.

VFW Post 11242 and Ladies Auxiliary ladies will be giving away a Valor Quilt at the turkey dinner in November, if you have a veteran you would like to enter, call Marge at 660-598-04042.

Family and friends enjoyed dinner at the Stanley and Marge Zink home Sunday.
