Tuesday afternoon, the RCWM held their monthly meeting in the church parlors. Linda Vander Vorst opened the meting with devotions. Stella Stout led the Bible Study. Joann Dyk had the program and served the lunch provided by Doris Van Beek.

Last week Friday, Eldon and Twylah Hollaar drove to Hartford, S.D. where they were overnight guests of Greg and Lisa Hollaar, Amanda, Ryan and Nicole. On Saturday, Derek and Bonnie Hollaar and Teagan and family and friends gathered to celebrate Teagan’s first birthday.

Sunday morning, Greg and Lisa, Eldon and Twylah attended the Meadows Campus, a satellite of Celebrate Church in Sioux Falls, S.D. They drove out to the site where Wade and Deb Backman, Sam, Gage, and Jake are building a new home. From there, Eldon and Twylah drove to Sioux Center, Iowa where they went to the First Reformed Church services with Glen and Betty Vermeer and were overnight guests at their home.

Monday afternoon, Eldon and Twylah drove to the home of Roger and Wanda Larson in Sioux Falls and were guests there until Thursday due to the ice and snow stormy weather. Thursday afternoon, Eldon and Twylah left Sioux Falls and arrived home safely that evening. Everyone appreciated the moisture but the iced trees and poles caused electricity failure which made for a lot of work to restore the power and clean up.

Some from the area attended the Pollock Auxiliary Salad Luncheon held at the School Community Center Saturday afternoon.

The Church services on Sunday were cancelled at Hope Reformed Church Sunday morning and at Hull Christian Reformed Church Sunday evening due to the heavy snowfall. The moisture is very welcome although hampers the farmers who are calving.
