I don’t know what it is about seasonal time changes. The other day I was a little dottier than usual. At least three times I had it in my head that Friday was Saturday. Well at least I wasn’t the only one getting mixed up and confused.
I hear there was a bear spotted right in Sechlerville the other day. I don’t claim to know a lot about bears, but are they not supposed to be hibernating this time of year?
Another Veteran’s Day has passed. It warms my heart to see how many programs were held in the area schools honoring our veterans. A lot of people also shared their thoughts on the day and made special mention of veterans in their lives and where and how they served.
I heard that it was a wonderful Veteran’s Day program held by the Taylor Hixton Legion and Auxiliary held at the Taylor Café.
Norman Berget made a day of it by attending the Freedom Honor Flight breakfast at UW-LaCrosse’s Mitchell Hall, then went on to the Veteran’s Program at the Taylor General Store and Café, enjoying father-daughter time with Genell. A special thank you for your service, Mr. B!
Speaking of thanking people for their service, it was a bunch of happy family and friends welcoming Derrick Laufenberg home from overseas service.
Vera Nerby recently celebrated her 90-something birthday with her family and cake. She especially liked seeing her great grandchildren.
It was a happy day on Nov. 8 for the Boe and Sedelbauer families when Levi Byron Boe, son of Amy and Jake Boe, made his appearance. The cute little fella weighed 7 lb, 8.5 oz and measured 20.12 inches long.
It’s that time of year! There was a great turnout and lots of hunting talk at the annual Hixton Ridge Deer Meeting on Nov. 11 at the Northfield Town Hall. Matt Sedelbauer won the traveling trophy for biggest deer from last year.
Another tradition—the annual week before hunting visit from Buck and Keith Johnson to get ready for the big opening weekend. The guys also enjoyed chicken and dumplings while listening to hubby yell during the Packer game. Glad the game ended on a winning note over da Bears!
Them Coulee Boys are getting their music out there with performances coming up in Wisconsin, Minnesota, South Dakota, Colorado, Utah, Idaho and Montana. So glad to hear of your continuing success, fellas!
It’s always great when I see that it is pizza time again! The youth group from Our Saviors/Northfield are going to Texas this coming summer for the National Youth Gathering and they are having their pizza sale fundraiser to help get them there. Ten bucks will get you a 12-inch pepperoni, sausage, both of them, deluxe or cheesy garlic bread. They will have 16-inch pizzas with the same toppings for $15. Not only are they good to eat fresh, they also freeze well, so contact any youth group member and stock up.
The Hixton Lucky Clovers held their monthly meeting Nov. 13 with a pizza party; awards night; fair share where they brought in a picture of their project, or the projects themselves, to talk about; and the swearing in of new officers made for a busy and fun night.
Save the date! Saturday, Dec. 2—Santa Run/Walk—5K and kids half- or 1-mile fun run at the BRF Chamber of Commerce on the Foundation Trail. Proceeds will benefit the eighth grade trip to Washington, D.C. Register by Nov. 22 to guarantee a long sleeve race shirt. In lieu of medals, all participants will be crowned with Santa hats upon completion of the course.
