The Hemmerling family has taken their musical message across Canada and into the United States. They held a repeat concert and the Evangelical Missionary Church on Sunday.

Sympathy goes out to the family of Don Emmett who passed away in Castor on Sunday, Nov. 19. Don was born and raised a half mile west of town and their family story is on page 352 of Home Fires.

The Christmas lights are scheduled to be hung on Tuesday. Perfect timing as Santa will be in town on Sunday morning, Dec. 3 visiting with the local children at the hall. The Elks and friends will be busy cooking a pancake breakfast, so be sure to bring your family and your camera.
