Last Tuesday John and Lila Frost were in Salina where John consulted his cancer doctor. Last Wednesday evening the Guar- anty State Bank bowlers, Eula Silsby, Inna Fogo, Dee Reed and Pat Ander- son, went to the bowling alley in Red Cloud. There was a birthday among the bowlers so they ate dessert also. One of the regulars on the team is Alice Belden, Burr Oak, Alice was missing this time as she had a much more important issue that night. Her hus— band, Dave, had been notified that day that there was a compatible liver avail- able for him. The transplant was com- pleted and as of this writing we are told that all went well and has continued so. Much more important than a night of bowling. Joan and Wayne Broeckelman went to Cloud County Community College last Wednesday night to watch a girls basketball game between Cloud County and Burton County Community Col- lege. The Broeckelmans’ granddaugh— ter, Caley Broeckelman, starts for Cloud County and that night they won the game. Last Tuesday Lila Frost went to Belleville to see Colin White, one of her grandsons. He was feeling a bit ouchy and not able to go to school. Tyler Broeckelman had his second treatment in Boston, Mass., last Mon- day. He and his step father returned to Kansas last Tuesday. He will have two more treatments before they do a scan to determine how things are going. “Here I Am Lord.” It’s a boy, and his name is Wyatt Alan. A son was born Friday to our good church members, Beth and Brett Walker. We’ll no doubt meet him in church in the near future. Gale B urgess was at the door to greet each and every- oneasrthey entered the Esbon United Methodist Church Sunday morning. Pastor Gerry Sharp was the minister. Wanda Thummel and Janet Kriley were the musicians. Lily and Clair Walker assisted by cousin, Dereck Gillett, were the acolytes. Dereck and Kim Gillett were the ushers. Guests were Terry and Marlene Walker. While talking to the children Pastor Gerry spoke up of the new baby and how that event re- minds us of God’ 5 love and his miracles. During her special, Deanna Underwood read of how you can mix undesirable items together and come up with a much wanted product. Pastor Gerry chose verses from I Corinthians for his scripture and titled his sermon. “Just Love Them.” Pastor said that a person may not be the best speaker in the pulpit, but his mingling with and giv- ing to the people, say like his hospital visits are excellent, which will make him a much loved minister. Go accord- ing to God’s work, don’t just love your friends, but also your enemies. As Jesus said while on the cross “Forgive them because they know not what they do.” Christianity will spread because the message is passed on and on. During joys and concerns thanks were given for the birth of the new baby boy and thanks for each and everyone of the other grandchildren and of the joys of them in our lives. Concerns were for the death of a loved o e and prayers were lifted for a friend 0 has surgery planned for the new future. Next month’s church duties go to Lane Un- derwood and specials to Janet Kriley. Fellowship followed church with Paula Voboril and Alyce Gillett hosting. Ione Shipley attended the Pioneer Dinner at Lebanon Saturday, where she ate the biscuits and gravy and ev- erything that went with them. Wanda Thummel filled the pulpitat Burr Oak United Methodist Church Sunday morning. Eula Silsby along with the others on her bowling team went Saturday to Red Cloud where they were involved in a bowling tournament. Sunday Sam Gillett reported at the same alley at 2 pm. as he took part in the men’s tour— nament. It was a success as more than 115 individuals registered and probably many never saw the registration note- book when they entered for the Sunday Soup Lunch. This event was spon— sored by the many volunteers who keep things operating in the City of Esbon. Some of the people] saw there were from Esbon of course, Burr Oak, Gib- bon, Mankato, Lebanon, Ionia, Beloit, McPherson and Jewell. There were 1 1 kinds of soup: vegetable, southwest chicken barley, tomato, chili, spicy chili, ham and beans with corn bread, taco, taco vegetable, potato, broccoli and cheese, chicken and noodle. I saw egg and cheese, toasted cheese, ham and cheese, and ham salad sandwiches. Some of the desserts filling that table were pies, cakes, cookies, donuts, cin- namon rolls, Jell-O desserts and kolaches. All along with your desired drink. Dianna Willitts baked and deco- rated two chocolate cakes which were decorated in an unbelievable fashion. These were part of a silent auction. There were a lot of women who volunr. - .7 teered their time during the day; Joan Broeckelman, Kris Kindler, Irma Fogo, Barb Mizner, Pam Hajny, Dianna Wil- voun REFUND Is CALLIN. 113 N Mill 1 Beloit, KS Concordia ’2 785-738-5801 Top 100 Franchise for 3 Consecutive Years To learn more about our community in Superior, call (402) 879—3099. < ,2 j nan- All faiths or beliefs are welcome. mam-n litts, Lila Frost, Eula Silsby, Daphne Manning, Victoria Willitts, Alyce Gillett, Beverly Frost, Anastasia Will- itts, Valencia Willitts, Barb Johanek, Deanna Underwood, Thelma Beam and others I know I missed. Even the weather was cooperative. Ed and Neva Lewis, McPherson, came this direction Sunday and stopped at the community center for a brief visit before going on to Red Cloud to see Ed’s father, Kenneth Lewis. Ken- neth is in the hospital fighting pneu- monia. I especially take notice of this as Kenneth and I were classmates. Both of us graduating from Esbon High, Class of 1940. Donna and Charles Leadabrand, Lebanon, visited Sunday afternoon with Joan and Wayne Broeckelman.

After open- ing his gifts, as those attending sang Happy Birthday, Remi blew out the candles on his Minion cake which was baked by/his aunt, Patsy Ord. Attend- ing the party were Jeff, Diana and Kasey O/d, Keller, Patsy, Olivia, Tho- mas and'Kooper 0rd, all of rural Guide Rockf Darin, Amanda and Lilly Barnes, Cortney Hendrickson and Alex Ideus, hosts Kyle, Paisley and Jerzie 0rd and Katie Mason, all of Red Cloud; Jim and Dana White, Grand Island; Kendra and Gracelyn Warren,Columbus, Neb.; and Cliff and Glenny Barnes. Doug, Wanda and Skylar Frasier were in Wichita for the weekend and attended the fourth birthday party hon- oring J ayden Frasier at the home of his parents,Caleb and Lauren, and brother, Jaxson. The party theme was Super Mario. Jayden enjoyed opening his many gifts and sharing his Mario cake with everyone. Josh, Amanda, Luke and Emma Frasier, Hastings, stopped to visit Doug and Wanda Sunday after- noon en route from the party in Wichita. Cliff and Glenny Barnes accompa- nied Jeff and Diana 0rd, rural Guide Rock, to Harvard Saturday morning to attend basketball games between the Red Cloud third and fourth grade girls and those from Harvard. Participating on the third grade Red Cloud team were Olivia 0rd and Lilly Barnes. Pais- ley 0rd played on the fourth grade teamandvscored the. only four points for the Red Cloud team. LaterCliff and 131 Years of Glenny, Jeff and Diana, did some shop- ping in Hastings and had lunch at a pizza restaurant before returning home. Brynlee Manning joined Richard Cox for children’s church at the Chris- tian Church Sunday. Richard and Brynlee talked about what Jesus wants for each of us. His message for adults was entitled “Life is a Roller Coaster.” His selected scripture reading was Acts 9: 1 -5 and 10-16. This portion of scrip— ture tells about Saul and how Jesus called him to be a messenger to the Gentiles and how he became Paul. Saul originally was a persecutor of the followers of Jesus. After his meeting with Jesus, he became a promoter. Saul who became Paul certainly had ups and downs in his lifetime. The pastor said we also have ups and downs in our lives. We have to decide whether we will let those downs stop us or if we will climb over them and learn from the defeats. We can be humbled by many things. The loss of a loved one or loss of a job can cause us to become humbled. It is hard for us to sometimes admit that something has gone wrong in our way of doing things. Like Saul we need to submit our will to Jesus and obey his teaching. Only the Divine can change people. God has a plan for our lives and that plan includes spreading the gospel just as Paul did. Life is full of ups and downs but Jesus Christ can make us into better people every day. Following the morning service Cliff and Glenny Barnes served breakfast pizza, fruit pizza, muffins, coffee and juice in observance of Birthday Sun- day. John 0rd, Steffen Barnes, Austin Manchanthasouk, Red Cloud, Jeff, Diana and Kasey 0rd and his friend Danea, and Cliff and Glenny Barnes all had lunch together at a Red Cloud restaurant Sunday. Long time Burr Oak resident Bill Dillon died last week at the Jewell County Hospital Long Term Care. Bill was well known for the many years he worked for the Jewell County High- way Department. His chil ren, Dr. Lonnie Dillon and Opal C lbertson, survive him. Weather forecasters for several days advised area residents to be prepared for the possibility of a winter storm Tuesday.Sure enough residents ofBurr Oak and the surrounding area woke up to a beautiful winter wonderland Tues- day morning. With the snow still fall- ing by mid morning a final amounts can not be reported at submission time. Rock Hills Schools were closed. While it looked beautiful outside, if one had to be out in it, it was not so nice. The Burr Oak United Methodist Church is sponsoring a benefit lun- cheon at the Burr Oak Community Center Sunday from 11 a.m. to 1 pm. They will be serving ham and beans, cornbread, chicken and noodles, des- serts and drinks, A free will offering will be taken with proceeds going to David and Alice Belden to help with medical expenses incurred from .
