Congratulations to Rusty French and his wife on the birth of their first born child, a son named Henry Jay. The members of Bethlehem Lutheran Church in Wright are having a farewell and appreciation get together after church Sunday, on April 17, for Judy VonDeLinde as she is moving to South Dakota in May. Please come out to church for 9 a.m. service, stay for the gathering and wish her well in her new pursuits, or come after church around 10 a.m. Everyone is welcome to attend.
The first meeting of the Carlton County Retired Educators will be at 11:30 a.m. Tuesday, April 26, at Applebee’s in Cloquet. The guest speaker is Kristin Parendo, managing attorney of the Senior Citizen Law Project. She will give a presentation on the topic of senior legal planning.
Wrong Days in Wright is looking for boys and girls to be the Wrong Days 2016 royalty! Anyone interested in grades pre-K to seventh grade are encouraged to sign up. Contact Faith Nyberg for more information at 701-388-9065. There will be a sign up sheet in the office as well.
The next YOT Senior Dance will be Thursday, March 24, with Florian Chmielewski providing the music. The dances are held at the Cromwell Park Pavilion and run from 1-4 p.m. Everyone is welcome to attend.
There will a Wrong Days meeting at 6 p.m. Monday, March 21, at the fire hall for anyone who wants to see Wrong Days continue. If the committee doesn't get several folks to step up, Wrong Days could come to an end for sure, or at least scaled back to only Friday's activities. Maybe it's time for it to be over, 50 years is a long time, but if you want it to stay around, come to this meeting and get as many of your friends and relatives to join you!
The trick for me is to focus on one object and then widen my mental view until a mostly complete image is manifested in the mind. It takes some practice but it works very well.
Aloha, things are going well here. We have had a few cooler days and there has even been a little misty weather. It’s a far cry from the weather you are having back in Minnesota! I’m sad to report more deaths in the area this week. It seems that sadness is hitting several families this month. Florence Helmi Newgren, 87, of Cromwell passed away Thursday, Feb. 11, 2016, in Augustana Rehabilitation Center. Her funeral was held Feb. 16 in Bethany Lutheran Church, Cromwell.
Villa Vista/Cardinal Court will hold Family Night at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 9. There will be entertainment, goodies served, and Santa will be there, too, so bring the kids.
We want to welcome a new bridge pastor to Bethany and Bethlehem Lutheran churches. Please take the time to welcome and meet Pastor Lisa Buchanan of Grand Rapids when you get a chance. She will be here on Sundays and Tuesdays and as needed for now. Did you know there are many official days to fly the flag in our country? Fly your flag on June 14, which is Flag Day. It’s also good to fly your flags on Father’s Day, too. As for me, I fly the flag every day!
