Mother Nature sure has been a colorful old gal lately. Interesting how one day is sunny with bright blue sky, white fluffy clouds and the next, it turns positively black in the middle of the day before the rains come once again. But worse than that? Hearing about and seeing pictures of skies that turned green and hail coming down that needed shoveling to move out of the way from our neighbors in Minnesota.
The weather, if hot, stayed beautiful for the many activities people were involved with. Hubby and I traveled to Fort Atkinson this past Saturday to attend my niece Eden Steiner’s graduation party. It was basically, a “where did that little girl, go” moment for her Aunt Lori. Seems like yesterday she was just a tiny thing with curly hair, deep dimples and a sunny outlook going by nicknames of “Elden”, “Ed” and “Edie”.
Heard it was a great party for Allan *Ole” Olson at the York Ball Park this past weekend. He had people attending all the way from California to people who live right next door—everyone had a great time and yes, he was surprised! That was one colorful cake he had.
Donna Jennings was back home to Hixton this past weekend to attend her cousin Allan Olson’s surprise party and niece Lisa Brevold came from Winterset, Iowa for the event as well.
At their June 12 meeting of the Hixton Lucky Clovers, fair book entries were due and turning in entry and code of ethic forms. Members were asked to be thinking about themes for each area of the fair and decorating at fair.
I thought it was getting about time for another trip to New York for Dan and Lisa Ripp and by golly, over comes a picture that said I was right. I look forward to seeing the Donut run photo of their granddaughter Madelyn that has become a tradition when they go there. They always have a grand time and it is always hard to leave there, but I bet they are already planning their next trip.
Chelsea Labar went in to Studio 107 last month with the intent to donate her hair—imagine her disappointment when her hair was a mere ½ inch too short to donate. However, she was part of a cut-a-thon held there, so she felt good about that.
Jacob Sweeney was part of a swearing in ceremony for the U.S. Army during a La Crosse Loggers game on Sunday, June 11.
A little bird mentioned the need to add Loretta Zahrte’s birthday—and her and Morris’s anniversary to the list of June happenings.
Our Jason was pleased to hear that his photograph was voted as one of the top 5 viewers choice at the photo exhibit at the BRF library with his photo of Green Bay Packer Randall Cobb. Other winners were Mary Mair, Jim Hornby x 2 and Dave Meyer.
Imagine reading the following: “The top-seeded Beavers have the best pitching staff in the nation that is headed by a pair of first team All-Americans and are instructed by one of the best pitching coaches in the college game. Fox 12’s Nick Krupke went one-on-one with Nate Yeskie.” and then finding out that Nate Yeskie is a former Hixtonite.
