Although today was a cloudy day, it’s been nice to have temperatures in the 20s above zero now rather than temps below zero like we had last week. Sounds like it might only be a brief reprieve, as colder temps are on their way later in the week.

Violet Ryckman, Elaine Speten, and Shirley Schaffner came on down last Sunday to visit their mom, Margaret Geigle, and did a little work for her too. She enjoyed the visit.

Betty Payne went to Linton Sunday to see her granddaughter, Brittni Brandner, confirmed at St. Anthony’s Catholic Church. Betty’s sons, Kevin Payne of Aberdeen, S.D., and Alan Payne of Watertown, S.D., came to help celebrate as well. They all had dinner at Cheryl Brandner’s afteward.

The community choir met last Monday evening at the Strasburg Care Center chapel. They are enjoying learning the songs for Easter, which is the end of March. More singers came out this week but the choir could still use more. It’s not too late to join! The choir meets at 7 p.m. on Monday evenings. You can use the door nearest the chapel or the front entrance.

Some went to Hague for pizza sponsored by the KCs on Sunday evening.

The Senior Citizens had their dinner on Tuesday, Jan. 22, with Arlene Kramer and Delores Hulm-Kramer recognized for their birthdays and Delma Dyk and Irene Heidrich as cooks. Twenty members were present.

Strasburg Care Center volunteers met on Thursday at noon for their volunteer meeting, with 10 present for the meal and business meeting.
