Dance to aid firefighters

WELCOME — Welcome Fire Department Relief Association will sponsor a benefit dance for the fire department on Saturday at the Welcome Legion Hall.

Festivities will begin at 6:30 p.m. Steve Lang and Bob Petrowiak will play your favorite country and western music.

The suggested donation is $5 per person, and they would appreciate any larger donation since the cost of equipment and training is more now.

They are one of the top first responders in Minnesota. They assist with the Martin County Fair, Martin County West gymnastics meets and the Welcome Summer Festival.

Plan now to attend the dance. If you are unable to attend, donations can be sent to the Welcome Fire Department Relief Association at Box 373, Welcome, MN 56181.

They thank you for your generous support.


Welcome City Council will meet 6 p.m. Tuesday at City Hall. All members are urged to attend.


Mid-week Lenten services will continue Wednesday with St. Paul’s United Church of Christ meeting at 6 p.m. for Bible study.

Circle of Faith parishes will meet for a fellowship supper 5:30 p.m. that night at Trinity Lutheran in Welcome. A service will follow at 6:30 p.m.

All area residents are welcome to join these churches for Lenten worship.


Condolences to the family of Paul Klenke from Welcome who passed away last week. He will be missed.


Upcoming events include: A Murder Mystery Dinner from 1-8 p.m. March 24 at the Welcome Legion. Get your tickets now by calling Kim Holm at (507) 236-1791 or by visiting the Welcome Legion.
