What a weekend in Kampsville! Perfect weather made for a very successful 41st Annual Old Settlers weekend. Our awesome guys on the ferry ran two ferries and worked hard keeping the traffic moving. So many visitors to our little village. All of the businesses had a terrific weekend and our campground was full. The crowd was entertained by “Calhoun Accident” on Saturday and “Back in the Saddle” on Sunday. I think people just enjoyed being out and getting to visit.
So much delicious food! The fish sandwiches and funnel cakes from the North Calhoun Fire Department were the best. Of course my favorite Old Settlers food, “Cookies as big as your head” from the St. John’s Lutheran Church.
Jr. Miss Calhoun drew the winning ticket for the beautiful Christmas Quilt donated by Pat Gotway. Congratulations to Judi Neese who won. Sunday was obviously Judi’s lucky day. She also won the toy dump truck full of cookies raffled by the St. John’s Church. Thank you to everyone who purchased tickets.
Our Calhoun Royalty Miss Calhoun Lexi Klocke, Jr. Miss Calhoun, Reagan Clendenny, Little Miss and Mr. Calhoun Harlow Hayn and Braxton King had another busy week. They began Wednesday evening by attending the ribbon cutting ceremony at the Rastello room at the “Main Street Shopping Event “ in Hardin. Thursday morning they attended the Calhoun homecoming parade. They wrapped up the royal duties on Saturday and Sunday, spending two days in Kampsville at Old Settlers Days. They began each day with the National Anthem. While there, they also enjoyed the petting zoo, especially the goats and a carriage ride. They also loved looking at all of the neat stands and of course the food.
Our queens also enjoyed looking at the scarecrows around town.
The contest is fast approaching. So get those scarecrows made! If you get a chance to drive up to Kampsville make sure and check them out. The patriotic soldier scarecrow in the center of town saluting our flag by the gazebo is definitely a favorite of many. It was built by Marcia Agney.
The Kampsville Royalty Little Mr. Harry Hayn assisted with the Calhoun Royalty Saturday morning at Old Settlers Day.
Little Mr. Harry along with Little Miss Kampsville Bailey Johns, Toddler Kampsville Exlee Reno and Baby Kampsville Shawn McKinnon represented Kampsville in the Homecoming parade on Thursday. They also all enjoyed the weekend at Old Settlers Days.
The queen of hearts at the Kampsville Legion also had a great crowd Friday night.
McCully Heritage Project hosted their Knapp-In this past Saturday. McCully’s also had a full campground this past weekend.
Congratulations to Calhoun High School Homecoming King and Queen Cole Lorsbach and Emily Wieneke who were crowned on Saturday. Cole is the son of PJ and Heather Lorsbach of Kampsville and grandson of Gary and Donna Howland. Emily is the daughter of Jacob and Brandi Wieneke and granddaughter of Dave and Margie Smith and Larry and Mary Kay Wieneke. Kampsville Trunk or Treat will be held Sunday October 24 from 4-6 on the Kampsville Legion Marvin Richter Ball Diamond. Please contact me if you’re interested in having a trunk. We will also have games and basket raffles. Anyone wanting to donate a basket for the raffle get a hold of me. This year we will have our baked goods walk. Everything will be held outside but such a great time is planned. I will be needing all my bakers for this. We are also planning a Bake Sale for Saturday the 23 at the Kampsville Landing. We will need bakers for that also.
