Mt. Zion area is finally getting some measurable rain. With rain comes mud, but we are not complaining. The leaves are still pretty. So far none of the other plants have frozen, but I think that is about to change. Farmers are planting wheat and fall calves are coming.

We have been enjoying the fall decorations especially along B Hwy. The bridge is finally open on the west end of B Hwy.

Terry and Judy Piepmeier have taken a few weeks off from visiting the doctor.  That made Judy smile and Terry happy.

Florance French has settled in and enjoying living at the Appleton City Manor. She enjoys getting cards and visitors.

The Mt. Zion Club met Wednesday in the home of Marge Zink. Ten ladies enjoyed watching Donna make noodles with a no mess machine you see on TV. The noodles were delicious, and we just pitched them in a pot of boiling beef broth as they appeared from the machine no cutting or drying required.
