Spring is coming
CEYLON — Tomorrow is the last day of February. Will March come in like a lion or a lamb? March 14 will be the day we change our clocks to Daylight Savings Time and the first day of spring is March 20. It also marks the one-year anniversary of the COVID lockdown. I am looking for signs of spring instead of dwelling on the fact that it has been a year for COVID protocol measures. Think positively.
Circle of Faith congregations will offer mid-week Lenten services at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday at Trinity Lutheran Church in Welcome. Our Savior’s Lutheran Church in Ceylon will host their dual congregation from Wilbert at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday evening for their mid-week Lenten service. Area residents are encouraged to join these churches for Lenten services. Due to COVID regulations, there will be no fellowship lunch or meal after these services.
Condolences to the family of Margarete Maschoff who passed away Feb. 18. Her son, Mark and his family, are Ceylon/Wilbert residents. She will be missed.
Due to COVID protocol, the Ceylon Area Historical Society will not have their usual annual meeting and election of directors in February. The directors will continue in their present offices. The directors are: Ronnie Leiding, Tom Bents, Greg Bents, Marilyn Stelter, Ann Yackle and Steve Houfer. Thank you for your service to the community and area.
