Kay Cox and her niece Pat Ahlberg, of Worthington, were among the hundreds who attended the June 1, 2013 Cancer Survivors Reception held at the American Reformed Church in Worthington. Each survivor received a purple T-Shirt, a survivor pin and had their hand painted on a large sheet to be hung on the wall every year. The meal was served family style at round tables. Pork furnished by JBS in Worthington and prepared by V& M Locker in Leota was delicious along with scalloped potatoes, rolls, cabbage salad, lemonade and coffee and beautiful colorful cupcakes. All the help was volunteered. Kim Lambert, Co-Chair Relay for Life of Nobles County, gave the welcome and will be at the Fairgrounds on Friday, June 21st for the Annual Relay for Life events which will have the survivors walk, luminarias, butterfly release and program! We are making headlines in slowing the terrible disease of cancer! In 2012 the United States celebrated a 20% decline in cancer death rates! It will be a great evening.

Beautiful picture of Mary Scheidt in last week’s Review. Mary is now retired after years of teaching, subbing, drivers training, etc. at our schools. Mary has touched the lives of hundreds - no thousands of our young people and their families! Mary always has a smile for everyone! Thank you Mary Scheidt for being one of the best!
A lovely bridal shower for Miss Jennifer Recker took place Saturday morning June 15th at the Upper (Grove) Park in Adrian. What a beautiful setting with lush grass, lovely trees and lots of playground equipment for the little ones. Most of the guests had arrived when it started to rain, then pour! But everyone took it in stride and feasted on delicious hot egg bakes and muffins, coffee cake and lots of hot coffee and punch. The bride was radiant in a little black dress and was so happy with all her lovely gifts. Jennifer is the bride-to-be of Andrew Echternaen. Her chosen colors are grey and purple.
This writer is always so thrilled and interested in reading about the “on-going” articles in the Argus Leader about the young black man, David Jal who is a probation officer in Sioux Falls. David is adamant about building a school in his native African Village in east South Sudan. Last week (6-14-13) the Argus Leader stated that David’s dream took a big leap forward thanks to a generous donation of $165,000 from an anonymous person, who will match the gift! David already has $75,000 in the bank and he and the board of directors will be scrambling to meet the November deadline. With that money they will be able to order the walls for the school. They already have dug a well for good water for the villages in south Sudan. they also bought modern grain grinders for the villages! What a beautiful dream that has become a reality. David is only 39 and is very well liked and admired by the people in South Dakota who are working hard to raise more money. David was one of the “Lost Boys of Africa.” He and fellow Africans are determined to help boys and girls get an education. If you feel like helping this great cause you an make a donation to: Khor Wakow, School Project, Box 295, Sioux Falls, SD 57101-0295. David and his board of directors work with the Episcopal Diocese of South Dakota and Catholic publishing venture Mary’s Project in Sioux Falls. God Bless you and thank you.

Celine Klein and Kay Cox were among the huge crowd attending the 60th wedding anniversary of the well known and respected Bill and Jean Deutsch in St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Ellsworth. Bill and Jean are the parents of ten children and I don’t know how many grandchildren and great grandchildren! The open house was held in the church parlor using the colors of white and lavender which were their wedding colors! All ten children were present with hundreds of friends and relatives from Minnesota, South Dakota, and Iowa. It was such a lovely and fun reception and Bill and Jean were so happy to see everyone. They both have been deeply involved with their church and also with the town of Ellsworth. May they have many more happy and blessed years ahead of them. Congratulations Jean and Bill Deutsch!
