Dean & Cindy Bullerman drove to Crookston, MN on Saturday to help their grandson, Levi Bullerman, Jr. celebrate his first birthday. Little Levi had a big day, complete with balloons, cake, gifts, and the UM-C homecoming football game! The Golden Eagles were victorious over Bemidji State University by a score of 16-14 which added to the excitement of the day. Seth Bullerman of Sioux Falls, Rod & Rhonda Greder and Andy Greder of the Twin Cities area were also guests at the Levi & Alarie Bullerman home. Luke Greder joined in the fun via FaceTime from "across the pond" in England.
Karen Funk, our Tenn. Ave. neighbor has moved to Prior Lake to be near her son. Karen hosted a supper at Subway for her other three pals in the apartment complex. Friend Lorraine Jones, who never stops moving, helped Karen pack for two days! We will miss you Karen and your delicious banana bread!
Twenty inches of snow in Rapid City over last weekend! Did I hear that? It broke all records for October! We got good rains around here. Our football game was called off at the half due to lots of lightening! By then Dingmann, Rogers, Dillon John, Jess Slater, Tony Sieve, Brady Lonneman and Andy McCann had racked up a 34-0 win over Murray County Central. I wonder who washed the uniforms and cleaned the buses! Congratulations Adrian Dragon Football Team and coaches!
Our Lady of Good Counsel at Wilmont held their annual Fall Dinner on Sunday, October 6th. It rained all the way to Wilmont, but that didn’t stop the crowd that came and enjoyed a delicious pork loin dinner with all the trimmings. Lots of good helpers - both men and right around our tables were lots of small girls who were so willing to help clean off tables. The tables had colorful place mats and jars of soybeans toped with sprays of fall weeds! I admired the weeds so Gary Henning pulled one out of the jar and gave it to me! It is happy nestled in with the golden wheat from Mobridge. Thanks Wilmont for a delicious meal. They had lots of items on their silent auction tables. Good to see Jim Joens, in his wheelchair, enjoying the meal. Jim and I were in Sioux Valley Hospital about 15 years ago. And we are both still alive and enjoy life!
I was so pleased to read about the Adrian Marching Band in Sunday’s Argus Leader under the Voices edition! The article started out with a question, “Is the Adrian High School Band clairvoyant?” With lot of snow in the Black Hills and the temperature in Sioux Falls at 37 degrees, the Adrian Band was ready for the judges at the 26th annual Festival of Bands Parade. Adrian flag bearers wore Santa Hats and the band blared a melody of Christmas Carols! The crowd was small but very enthusiastic. The students were excited to report their second place finish, which is the highest the Adrian Marching Band has ever placed at the competition.
Deb Lutmer will be writing about the Loosbrock wedding which took place at St. Adrian on Saturday, October 5th. I’ll just say “It was beautiful and classic and the music was breathtaking and awesome.” This is from two anonymous friends.
Thanks to Marge and Willy Nath who picked me up to attend the volleyball game with Ellsworth. It was parent night and the announcer introduced all the Sophomore, Junior and Senior players and their parents. They all formed a large semi circle facing the Adrian fans and all got a loud round of applause! Then the announcer said something, but I didn’t hear him, but one of the players ran across the floor and came up to me with a gold volleyball and presented it to me. I immediately said “No, Not Me.” But she hugged me and said “Thanks for all the support you give to our team and all the other sports. The ball is signed by all the players, two coaches and stats! I immediately started to cry and couldn’t find the hanky I had up my sleeve. I am very happy, but also very humble. Thank you Adrian Volleyball Team and coaches! I will cherish my gold ball and look at it often! Also thanks to Rick Knips who helped me off the bleachers! We have so many kind folks in our community.

Tony and Darla Parsley will be collecting your good warm coats until the end of October. Put scarves, hats, and mittens in a plastic bag! Do the same for shoes and warm boots! Thank you.
Watch out for the big combining equipment as farmers hurry from field to field.
Praise God for the good rains!
