Community Day delayed

CEYLON — Because of the anticipated weather forecast of blizzard conditions today, the Ceylon Community Day auction has been postponed until April 21.

As far as I can remember, this is the first time it has been postponed in the 80-plus years it has been held. This is just another episode in this crazy spring of 2018 in Minnesota!

Mark Howell and Gary Helmers announced the postponement on Thursday and ask that no consignment items be brought until next week.

For more information, Mark’s phone is (712) 260-9690 and Gary’s phone is (507) 236-2921, or go to the Howell Real Estate website.


April coffee hours continue 8:30-10 a.m. Tuesday at Trinity Lutheran Church in Trimont. Join friends and neighbors for coffee and goodies.


Friendly Neighbor Card Club will meet 1:30 p.m. Friday at Jeanine Rasmussen’s home in Dolliver. This is one week later than usual due to Ceylon Community Day’s schedule.


Condolences to the family of former Ceylon resident Wally Schueler who passed away in Florida in March. Wally farmed in Tenhassen Township and his wife, Dorothy, was the home ec teacher in Ceylon for many years. Condolences can be sent to Dorothy at 1109 Tartan Dr., Apt. C, Palm Harbor, FL 34684.


Upcoming events include Ceylon cleanup day from 8 a.m. to noon May 12. For more information, contact City Hall. There is a charge.
