Four Ways from By Erma Dillon N This has certainly been a busy week for most everyone and I am sure when I have finished gathering the news for this week, I will not have included near all the happenings in the Northbranch area. Weather is another subject that could be expounded upon, but I'm not we had an oversupply. They were suc- cessful fishermen so we were all happy! The alumni banquet held at the Burr Oak Community Building was well attended Saturday evening. Even some of the 'younger' ones showed interest by attending. The catered meal was much into things I can't control, so delicious and the program was enjoy- that, too, will be brief- only to say that able.

Members of the Emory Clemons American Legion Post 263, Auxiliary and Junior Auxiliary were in charge of the Memorial Day service at the B/aT Oak Cemetery. 114 fags, represent- ing those who died during conflicts and deceased veterans, fluttered in the breeze on a beautiful, sunny Kansas morning. Volunteers from the com- munity arose early to meet at 6 a.m. at the old grade school building to pick up the poles for placement at the cem- etery. The Junior Auxiliary girls raised the American flag to the top of the flag pole before lowering it to halfmast and leading those gathered in the flag sa- lute. Apryl Webster gave the invoca- tion, wreaths for those dead and for those still living were placed on the memorial monument by the Junior Auxiliary girls.

After supper the women had a painting party. This newspaper's web page may be found at superiorne.com. Esbon By Glenna Fogo This news column will no doubt be short. Monday being Memorial Day, I will probably turn in what I have Fri- day. My good friend, Judy Donley, Burr Oak, while taking part in activities at her church here in town stopped in to see me a couple of times Sunday. En- joyed her visits and, of course, also the food she brought me. This is Esbon and each and every- one of us are pleased with what we are and what we do. The newest project we are proud of and I will now tell you about it. The Esbon American Legion Perry A. Lamb Post No. 368 has erected a monument dedicated to our veterans. This memorial is a large slab of lime- stone. It is mounted on cement and placed north of the American Legion building. This memorial is to honor all veterans, with special emphasis on those who were serving in the military at the time of their death. Wording on the memorial is as follows: "Honor To Our Veterans." The Esbon community proudly salutes all veterans for their dedication and ser- vice to our great country. We espe- cially pay tribute to the followingvet- erans who have given their lives while serving their country to keep our na- tion safe and free. May they rest in peace. Bless them and bless America: Lyle Matousek 1945; Ralph Phillips 1944; Larry Belden 1969; Paul Tho- mas 1970; Perry A. Lamb 1918; Albert Shook 1918; Max Underwood 1951; Julian Ball 1945. At the base of the monument is a kneeling service man and a cross. This piece of art was put in place just before Memorial Day this year. That day origi- nally was observed to honor our war dead, butnow we use it to pay honorage to all those deceased. The project was headed up by John Beam. The com- pany that did the Esbon sign at the junction of K112 and US36 also did this. Funds to help with the project were received from a grant given by the Dane Hansen Foundation. Recently I saw a piece on TV which made me think of what I have experi- enced. Maybe because I have grown a bit older, maybe not, perhaps I have just noticed it. What is it? It's courtesy I see among those I don't even know. Those men or women who offer to give me a hand. I'm sure those people have always been there but I did not notice them. Being an independent person I did not even let someone help me by carrying out my groceries unless I had a lot. I figured those people had to do it all day and I thought by carrying my own, maybe I could give them a break. Other times I would see a customer having their sacks carried out even if it was only one or two small sacks and I would think, "how stupid." But gener- ally we humans are kind and thought- ful. There are few of the other kind. So when someone says, "let me help you" or"can I open the door for you," try to respond, "yes and I thank you" or "it would certainly be appreciated." Re- member to say "thank you" when you are helped and let it be known that you really mean it. There is another change on Esbon' s South Grand. The Daryl Frosts have painted their house. It is now brick red. Trudy and Jerry Lewis arrived at their Esbon home Tuesday night. They plan a two weeks stay and are includ- ing a visit to the Orphan Train Museum in Concordia.

Thursday, June 2, 2016 JEWELL COUNTY RECORD 8A Above is a new monument at the Esbon cemetery in honor of Perry Lamb. relatives and friends Lila Frost attended a Jewell County Hospital board meeting in Mankato last Wednesday night. As I sit down to write, I thought I would write some bits and pieces that I know about some of the young men listed on the American Legion Memo- rial stone, which honors all veterans. Perry A. Lamb and Albert Shook were before my time, but I have always thought Lamb was the first Esbon boy killed during World War I, that being the reason for our post being named after him. Ralph Phillips was raised south of Esbon in the Westbranch area, where he lived with his father, Roy, and sis- ter, Eileen. He graduated from Esbon ,High School with the Class of 1938. Ralph and Bruce Corrick joined the Marines together, but I don't think they were ever stationed together. Ralph was killed in 1944 on the island of Pelelieu of the Palau group in the South Pacific during World War II. To tell you the kind of person he was, here is a little story. My first real date was with Ralph. In the summer after I gradu- ated from the eighth grade, on a Satur- day night, Ralph asked if I would go the movies with him the next night. I said yes and he said I had to ask my parents if it was okay with them. I did. They said yes and we went to the Ute Sunday night. Ralph married Jean Frost and they were always good friends of mine and Chuck. Lyle Matousek, Esbon High Class of 1939 was stationed in the South Pacific during World War II and I don't believe anyone but me knows this story until now, all of you readers needed at home.
