Many upcoming events set

WELCOME — The last Tuesday coffee hours for September is scheduled for 8:30-10 a.m. Sept. 26, at St. Paul’s United Church of Christ in Welcome. Join friends and neighbors for good coffee and great fellowship. I have no information that anyone is having coffee hours in October, so this upcoming one could be the last for this year.


Join Robert Schultze for a 75th birthday bash from 6-7:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 23, at the Welcome Legion. Enjoy musical entertainment from Steve Lang and Bob Petrowiak at 7:30 p.m. Happy birthday, Bob.


Condolences to the family of Dennis Rosburg who recently passed away. He will be missed.

With October comes the harvest season. Please be careful in harvesting and when driving on roads that slow moving vehicles are using too. Watch for overhead wires and poles by the edge of fields. Do not enter bins without another person knowing where you are. Let’s have a safe harvest season.
