Trunk-or-treat coming up in Ceylon

CEYLON — Halloween this year will surely be different from other years.

Some of the candidates for City Council will sponsor a trunk-and-treat event for area children from 5-7 p.m. Oct. 30. The trunks of at least 20 cars will be open to the park side and children may get treats safely at the city park.

Social distancing and face mask protocols will be used for the protection of all.

Thank you to Armond and AJ Kronback (and Barb), and Scott Smith and Amanda Diers for organizing some safe fun for area children.

Some residents may have received a postcard about alternative voting places. City Hall will be open Nov. 3 for in-person voting if anyone in the city wants to vote there. The postcard listed an alternative place, not a replacement place to vote.

There is also mail-in voting available.

Stay safe and vote.

Condolences to the family of long-time Ceylon area resident Marian Anderson (Lyle), who died on her 85th birthday, Oct. 9.

Mrs Anderson will be remembered by many Ceylon School students and Ceylon community groups. She will be missed.

Our Savior’s Lutheran Church in Ceylon and its dual parish, St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Wilbert, will not have in-person worship Saturday evening and Sunday morning. They plan to resume in-person worship beginning Oct. 25.

Some have noticed my telephone number is not in the new small telephone book so I will add it to this column. My telephone is the same, (507) 728-8346 and my email is cs2152946@live.com

Thank you for letting me know some items for the Ceylon News column. I usually write it on Thursday and it is published Saturday. I appreciate all the help.

There will be a drop-and-go bridal shower for Alyson Eversman, bride-to-be of Jacob Levig, from 9:30-11 a.m. Oct. 24 at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Fairmont. Because of concerns with COVID-19, there will be no gathering indoors.

Alyson will be in the west parking lot to say hello. She is the daughter of Jeff and Deb Eversman.
