The NEVC Kids First organization is going to serve at auctions on Saturday, Oct. 5 and Sunday p.m. Oct. 6 and would appreciate donations of pies, ham, hotdogs, buns, etc. The more we have donated the more they make for our school. They could use more help. For information, contact 465-2260.
Rich and Marty Patton spent last weekend in Colome and Winner, SD, visiting Rich’s mom and five of his siblings.
Friday evening, Jered, Crystal, Kate and Cole Burch, along with friend, Kasen Talbert, attended the Nevada Tigers first home game. Saturday, the YMCA volleyball season kicked off. Kate Burch’s teammates are Teagan Charles, Lani Coonrod, Lauren Eaton, Jadeann Highley, Heaven Tignor, Stacy Pennington and Adi Wilson. The Leprechauns are coached by Crystal Burch and their first game was a win. Later, Jerry, Jenise, Jered, Crystal, Kate and Cole joined Teresa McCoy and Patty and Cara Comstock at a MFA Beef Management Clinic and lunch.
The NEVC JR pie supper is coming up. It will be Duck Dynasty theme. Fish and Chicken will be served as the meat at the meal along with potato salad and cole slaw. The date is Friday, Oct. 11, and they start serving, I think, at 5:30 p.m. The pie selling starts at 7 p.m. I think and there are games that evening.
Mike and Kathy Newman and Kayla Loyd, Ethan and Jared attended the family day at Living Waters Ranch near Osceola on Saturday. They ate lunch and enjoyed horse riding, zipline, hayride, bounce house and slingshot activities.
Saturday evening, Jered, Kate and Cole Burch went fishing and caught two turtles. The fish were elusive. Sunday afternoon, Walker Christian Church, along with youth and leaders from Rinehart Christian, Nevada United Methodist, St Paul Lutheran, First Baptist, and First Christian gathered at Marmaduke Park for the See You at the Pole Rally in preparation for Wednesday’s national See You at the Pole event, where students gather at their school’s flagpole to pray and praise.
Last weekend, Jenise Burch attended a Cousins Retreat at her cousin Kathy Francis’ farm at Cameron. Those attending were Elaine Rhoads, Karen Moreno, Glenda Boyd, Kathy Francis all of the Kansas City area and Sherry Nielsen of Laurie. They went to Jamesport to Amish stores and enjoyed reminiscing.
Dexter Patton spent the weekend at the home of his parents, Rich and Marty Patton. Saturday, Marty went to the DAR Southwest District Meeting in Bolivar and Saturday evening Rich and Marty took her parents, Don and Edith Stockstill, out to dinner to celebrate Edith’s birthday.
Mike and Kathy Newman, Ron Pence and Charles and I attended the Osage River Baptist Association Picnic at Kamp Keirsey near Passaic Sunday evening with a group from the First Baptist Church of Schell City.
Norman and Betty Radde received a call Saturday night from Norman’s brother, Braxton Radde, that his wife, Audene, had passed away, at Bolivar; she was the former Audene Baker and went to school at Walker.
Norman Radde is the new mayor of Walker. We can expect changes. Norman took on the railroad and MoDot and got the railroad crossing in Walker in much better shape.
Chet Foreman and I attended flag football games in Pleasanton, KS, Saturday morning and watched grandsons, Garrett Conley and Coltin Wilson, play. Chet attended grandson, Brice Budd’s, game earlier Saturday morning, but my car just turned into a yard sale and I missed that one.
