After a cold, blustery weekend, with temperatures that went from 62° on Thursday to 26° or lower after that, it looks like we’re in for a chilly week ahead. With farmers starting calving season, they will be out there checking to make sure the calves don’t freeze their ears. However, we did not receive the snow that other parts of our state had.

Delma Dyk went to Oakes for Tyler Krumm’s Drama play. She was an overnight guest of Lex and Arvetta Krumm. Others there on Saturday were Trina Krumm of Fargo and Allan Paul of Oakes. Delma returned home Saturday afternoon.

Arlin and Carol Int Veldt were recent Saturday afternoon and supper guests of Brian and Shelly Bauske of Mandan. They were also Sunday afternoon coffee guests of Dennis and Marlyn Fay Van Boven.

Here to visit their mother, Augusta Roos, who is in the hospital, are their daughters Sylvia (Tennessee), Judy (California) and her daughters, Andrea and Sally, both of California, and sons, Robert and wife, Terry, and Arnold (all of Minnesota).

On Sunday, the Strasburg Community Choir had their Easter cantata at the Care Center in the afternoon and at Westfield Sunday evening. They had a good crowd out at the Care Center. If you missed those performances but would still like to see it, they will be performing one more time at the Sts. Peter & Paul Catholic Church (7:30 p.m.) Palm Sunday, March 24. This production is free and open to the public.

The “Close-Up” program high school students led by Brian and Nicole Grove, left on Saturday for a week in Washington, D.C. We hope they come back with some great experiences to share!
