I understand that Big Orv’s and Jerry Murphy came in dead last!!! Jerry... you have to pick another partner!
Our young basketball boys are out of further tournament play! They lost to Red Rock Central 86-69 last Saturday afternoon, March 2nd at Worthington. Mr. Schnaible can be very proud of this team and so are the parents and fans. These young men (not a senior on the team) will be great next year!
I was watching the Gophers beat Penn State 73-44, with mute control on television, and listening to three games on the radio! No wonder my dusting did not get done.
Don’t forget to call Audrey and Ray Brake for tickets to the great play “Fashionably Late” by the Misfits at St. Kilian on March 16 and 17th and Saturday, March 23rd and Sunday, March 25th. You will not be sorry with a great meal and crazy play! Ray and Audrey’s phone number is 507-472-8267.
The 10th Annual Adrian Jazz and Show Invitational will be Monday, March 11th at the Adrian High School. Doors will be open at 3:30 and competition will start at 4 p.m. Schools from Minnesota and South Dakota will compete. You will love this great music!
Joe and Marcie Mauch returned home Saturday morning after a fabulous trip to Puerto Rico! They were gone for seven days and the weather was warm and the area beautiful. They went swimming and sightseeing and enjoyed every minute.
Last Thursday St Adrian Vespers was held at 6 p.m. Those present went to the basement to enjoy soup and sandwiches before returning upstairs to participate in Stations of the Cross. Somehow the kitchen was dark and no sign of soup or sandwiches!! A few long faces but we all enjoyed a large pan of rice krispie bars made and brought by Joyce Mormann! We found a 1/2 gallon of orange juice and so with lots of laughter we enjoyed Joyce’s treat!! Just a little mix up but we made it through the evening.
Lets remember our sick friends with lots of prayers. Alice Klooster, “Junior” Ted Bullerman, Baby Amundson, The family of Jim Roemeling. “Red” McCarthy and for all those who are suffering.
Eileen Hokeness and her five daughters enjoyed a weekend in Omaha, NE two weeks ago. The five Hokeness girls are Sharon Lynn, Cindy Cox, Lisa Bullerman, Carmen Erlandson and Carol Tweet. The girls take turns and once a year they do something special. This year they went to Omaha. They shopped, reminisced, ate out and also made food at Lisa’s home where they all stayed. On Saturday while shopping in a huge store they all had a wonderful surprise. A young man by the name of Chris recognized Eileen and one of the girls. He was a nursing student at Sioux Valley/Sanford when Dad, the late Gene Hokeness, was a patient there for many weeks. This young man was so dedicated to Gene and Gene thought the world of him. By using their cell phones in the store all five girls and Eileen had the pleasure of meeting him again! This young man and his fiancee had never been in that store before. Talk about a miracle! That surely was one. They all were able to again thank Chris for his special care of Gene. It made the weekend so wonderful!
Our sympathy to Germaine Roemeling and her five children in the death of husband Jim and Dad. Jim’s funeral service was held at 10 a.m. Monday, March 4th at the St Adrian Church. Officiating was Father Andrew Beerman who also held a prayer service at the Adrian Funeral Home at 4 p.m. Sunday afternoon. Jim was such an outdoors man and great pinochle card player! I’m sure as a young child growing up he played lots of cards with his Mom! Jim’s children are Tammy, Linda, Jeff, Diane and Alan and 13 grandchildren who were pallbearers. Jim was one of 16 children of Ole and John Roemeling and good looking group they are, as well as good hard workers. His dear wife Germaine fell on the ice Feb 16 and broke her leg. She gets around with a scooter and of course has help from her children and grandchildren and in-laws. We all thank God that Jim is not suffering any more. Blessed be the memory of Jim Roemeling.
This last week I had many good comments about my column! I’ll take this way to thank you all. By the way, the sign on my big window “Go Jacks” is for the SDSU basketball teams. I have a granddaughter going to school
there and lots of good young friends. Both men and women teams are at the top of the Summit League.
