It’s cleanup day in Ceylon

CEYLON — Today is cleanup day in Ceylon, with curbside pickup of items by trucks from Waste Management provided by the city.

This is a free opportunity to clean up Ceylon.

Appliances will be picked up by Larry Kling. Remember: No electronics, televisions, paint, chemicals, waste, dead animals, broken glass, shingles, needles or bricks.

Any items not accepted must be removed from curbs by May 21 or they will be considered a violation of the junk ordinance and be ticketed.

Residents may take electronic and chemical kinds of items to the Prairieland waste facility in Truman.


Tuesday coffee hours in May continue from 8:30-10 a.m. at Trinity Lutheran Church in Welcome. Join friends and neighbors for coffee, treats and fellowship.

Also, a coffee lovers group in Ceylon gathers from 8:30-10 a.m. Thursdays at the Legends 2/Legion building. It’s another good opportunity for fellowship and good coffee.


Condolences to the family of Arnold Lemke from the Wilbert/Ceylon area. He will be missed.


Ceylon Legion and Auxiliary met this week and decided not to have a Memorial Day Program.

The Legion members will place flags on the graves of veterans in area cemeteries on Friday. Help with this project to remember our veterans would be appreciated. If you can help, please show up 1 p.m. at the Lake Belt Cemetery, just west of Ceylon.

St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Wilbert will have a Memorial Day service 9 a.m. May 27. Area residents are welcome to join them to remember that freedom isn’t Free.
