The summer heat is with us. The Meppen Picnic had a nice crowd Saturday night and served delicious turtle soup, beef sandwich, barbecue chicken, choice of dessert, and tea. Outdoors were their fish sandwich, funnel cake, snow cone, ice cream cone, and items from the country store. The crowd was numerous, and the band started around 8 p.m. and held the crowd. The soda and beer stand were available near the music. Bingo and other games were enjoyed by all.
The Sunday dinner consisted of our Calhoun picnic favorites, fried chicken, roasted beef, mashed potatoes and gravy, dressing, dumplings, slaw, your favorite piece of pie, and drink. There was a nice attendance. Carry outs were available, and the quilts, baked items, and canned jellies sold quickly.
The children and adults enjoyed the games, fish pond, ring toss, chuck o’ luck, and I did it. The air conditioned dining area was filled with happy visitors, and friends enjoying the meal they had been waiting for.
The Brussels Picnic is this coming weekend, Aug. 13 and 14, at St. Mary’s in Brussels. They too serve the traditional meal on Saturday evening at 5 p.m. after the 4 p.m. mass. The weather is predicted to be inviting with lower possibilities of heat. All our picnics have air-conditioned dining areas, and carry-outs available. It’s the food you like and the desserts are wonderful.
The Blessed Trinity raffle will be held at the end of the Brussels picnic.

Like a bird
Singing in the rain,
Let grateful memories
Survive in time of sorrow
