This years fundraiser we have a new caterer with ham and roast beef on the menu, tickets are $25 each.

This week is the transition week with our featured artist changing. October and November is Pine Gregory. We will also have a Program on Sunday, October 22 at 2 pm on World War I by Mel Griswold speaking on the The Great War and the Women of the Panhandle.

HISTORICAL MUSINGS

Here are two filler articles in the September 27, 1917 issue of the "Limelight":

An Efficiency Study: "Bliggins is doing even less work than he used to do." Yes. He has gotten into the way of whistling time for himself and others, standing around talking about efficiency."

Soldiers and Officers: The lieutenant was testing the squad in visional power. "Tell me, No. 1," he said, "how many men are in the trench digging party over there?" "Thirty men and one officer," was the reply. "Quite right. But how do you know one was an officer at this distance?" "Cos he's the only one not working!"

Have a good week and join us Saturday in Follett.
