Happy New Year to our readers.
There was a good crowd at the Fill Inn Station on New Year’s Eve. Linda Russell and Marcy Klockenkemper had the steak dinner special and talked with many of the local folks also celebrating the New Year.
Some of the folks enjoying the evening were: Terry and Terry Presley and their grandsons, Eldon and Christine Johnes, Jerome and Betty Sievers and Jerry and Bonnie Sievers, Pat and Vera Droege, Tub Funk, Bernard Mager, Jim and Theresa Johnes, Bruce and Diane Siever, and Lenny Kiel, and Bernie and Robin Hillen.
Kenny and Bette Eilerman had New Years at their home Friday afternoon with their family. Mike, Brian, Greg, and their wives, Nick and Lisa and her husband, and their families enjoyed an afternoon meal and then headed for home before evening predictions of storms and bad weather materialized.
Kathy and Irene Wallendorf celebrated New Years at Andy and Alley Wallendorf’s.
Delmar and Barb Bick celebrated Christmas and New Year’s with their daughter, Lynn, and Hayley and family, along with Keegan and Riley Craig, and family who were also in attendance. A good time was had by all.
Virgil and Angeline Klaas hosted a Christmas Eve celebration for sons Eric, Mark and Virgil and their families. The family got together on New Year’s Day also at Virgil and Angeline’s home. Virgil and Eric and their families were there. Mark and John Pluester and a friend from the Refinery that they work for were called to a town near Vancouver for work. They will continue to work there and Megan is flying to the refinery to be near Mark this weekend. A nice start to the New Year.

Like swift winged swallows, her small hands flew,
Dipping and darting the bright threads through,
Over and under the steel flashed through –
Silent staccato and constant rhyme.
And oh, I wonder—did she divine
That threads would hold, and the quilt
Should someday rest on a bed of mine.
Bridging the mystical gulf of time?
