Jim and I wish to extend our deepest condolences to Duane Coop and family at the passing of his dear wife, Jean. His devotion to Jean during her final illness was so very touching and I know that her loss will leave an empty place in his heart for some time to come. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time, Coop.
The Lorane Christian Church’s Women’s Ministries is collecting cans and, I’m assuming, bottles by September 8, to raise money for their mission projects which include food baskets for Lorane residents and to put towards their annual retreats.. If you have any to donate, please leave them at the church.
The ladies of the church have begun a craft night for anyone who would like to bring their own craft project to work on. If you don’t do crafts, bring a coloring book and just visit with friends and neighbors. It takes place every other week on Tuesday evenings at 7:00 p.m. at the Lorane Christian Church. The next one should be scheduled for Tuesday, September 13.
Also another quick reminder about the Crow Middle/High School Booster Club’s annual Crow Car Show to be held on September 10 at Crow High School. More information can be obtained from the Crow Car Show Facebook page or one of the Booster Club members.
I’d like to share with you a chuckle I had one morning last week… During the summer, before the day gets hot, I frequently open my sliding glass door onto our front porch to let the cool, fresh morning air in. That particular morning, as I was ready to sit down for my morning coffee, I saw movement on the floor under our breakfast table. It was a tiny tree frog, leaping through the forest of chair legs. I gently caught him in my hands and took him back outside to one of my flower planters and let him go. How a little frog got into my house, I have no idea, but he provided a fun interlude before I sat down to read the dreary morning news.
Maybe my little visitor was a harbinger of the wonderfully refreshing days to come of waking up to drops of rain from a night-time shower dripping from the bushes, trees and very happy flowers this past week.
The owners of the planned new Alesong Brewery that is being built in Lorane are currently trying to arrange a meeting with the Lorane community to answer questions and inform neighbors of what their plans are for the new business. At this time, the day and time of the meeting have not been set, but I will try to get the information out in my next column, or if that is too late, it will be posted on the Lorane Facebook page.
I’m going to cut this shorter than usual as I’ve run out of news, and our family has a wedding to get ready for. Our granddaughter, Linsey Kau, and her fiancé, Brent Haxby, will be getting married on Saturday, September 10, so we’re all in a’flutter.
