8B THE SUPERIOR EXPRESS Thursday, December'15, 2016 Esbon ,( By Glenna Fogo The Esbon community Christmas drawing, a holiday party, will be Sun- day at the Esbon Community Center. This event starts at 1:30 p.m. and guess what, Santa will be there. The City of Esbon has received a Dane Hansen community grant to pur- chase three AEDs (automatic external defibrillators). These devises will be placed at Farmway Co-op elevator, Esbon Fire Hall with a third location still to be determined. The hope is to have them in the most accessible places available. Community members will be trained to use them during the time of a cardiac arrest. Dates and times will be announced later for anyone wishing to take the training. Last Monday, Lila Frost was in Smith Center where she visited Gary Bartscher, Mary Lou Griffith, Steve Fogo, Lorna and Nolin Hajny and Danny Haegert. As she visited each, she shared cookie plates that had been prepared by the women of the Esbon United Methodist Church. lone Shipley returned from her Ari- zona trip late Monday night. As I sit here today, Dec. 7, 2016, I am remembering back 75 years ago to that other Dec. 7. The one in 1941! That was the day that changed the lives of many young men and women. Many lives were lost when the ship, the Ari- zona, and others were hit. The next day, President Roosevelt announced this country was at war. Some of our youth were sent to Europe, where they fought against Adolph Hitler's troops and defeated them. Others were sent to the South Pacific where they brought down the Japanese tyrant making him sorry he had instigated the attack on Pearl Harbor on that December Sun- day. . The first Tuesday of every month ,you will see the Esbon volunteer fire- men coming to town for their monthly meeting. Those attending last Tuesday were Dwight Frost, Mike Pate, Randy Fogo, Bill Friesner, Bill Allen, Ray Mizner, Kenny Mizner, Wayne Frost, Dave Hastings, Stede Underwood and Van Shamburg. Bill Allen, as usual, prepared the meal of ham, scalloped potatoes, corn and cherry cobbler. Some of the time was devoted to work- ing On a truck and discussing the Dane Hansen grant which has been received to purchase three AEDs. Last Tuesday at Mankato, Lila Frost visited Linda Gass, Doris Matousek, Norene Dietz and Lila Mizner as she also took cookies to them. Also Tues- day Michelle Crocker, took plates of cookies to Roger Broeckelman, Jaeque Frost, Tammy Alexander and Mike Welch, all to OCCK in Beloit. Then she went to Hilltop where she deliv- ered cookies to Sue Baker and Jeff Welch. All these plates were gifts from the Esbon United Methodist Church women Around 4:30 p.m. last Tuesday, the local ambulance was called into activ- ity. All that can be found out is that apparently the caller decided no assis- tance was needed Last week I received a telephone call from Don Danielson, Belleville. He read my article the week before about the Mankato and Belleville guard units being called to active duty in 1961 at the time of the Cuban crisis. He told me there are several of the fellows who made that trip still living in the Belleville area and they often get to- gether for coffee. Nice visit, Don!

She was filling in for Bob Garman, who had knee sur- gery. , Ray Mizner was in Beloit Friday to pick up his mother, Lila Mizner, as she was released from the hospital Esbon City Council met Thursday night, in regular session.
