Meridian mourns passing of beloved teacher, Margaret Winkler 

 

by Simone Wichers-Voss 

“This morning our sweet Margaret went to be with her Lord and Savior,” David Winkler wrote on Facebook the day his beloved and dear wife succumbed April 9 to the cancer she had been battling for over three years.

“Today, I am reminded of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego in the Bible and how they proclaimed that even if their God didn’t save them from the fire; that they would continue to serve Him.

“Well, Margaret wasn’t healed of her cancer here on earth, but throughout the journey she continued to serve our God, and we aim to continue her legacy. Our prayers for her healing and comfort have been answered in a more perfect way than could ever be done on this side of eternity.”

Lutheran Sunset Ministries’ Easter egg hunt gathers fun

by Nathan Diebenow 

Young hunters and gatherers from far and wide showed off their tracking skills for sugary treats at the Lutheran Sunset Ministries’ annual Easter Egg Hunt on Friday, March 30.

The Easter egg hunt organizers separated youths into three different age groups in order for the younger participants to gain experience in the gardens on the ministries’ campus.

Prior to the afternoon start times, older siblings assisted their younger kin with surveying the hunting grounds, looking for unique and – in most cases – well-stocked Easter eggs.

Good turnout for CTYF validation

by Nathan Diebenow 

Turnout was good for the validation of swine, goats, and lambs ahead of the Central Texas Youth Fair’s Bosque County Livestock Show and Home Economics Show this summer.

About 60 pigs, 45 goats, and 30 lambs were validated on Tuesday, April 3, at the fair grounds in Clifton.

The number of show animals entered into the annual junior livestock show could possibly be higher because not included in the totals were animals validated through the state for other shows in the season, Brian Prescher, CTYF board president said.

Celebrating family & heritage

Hoel family reunion celebrates 147 years in America 

 

NORSE - More than 45 descendents of Christopher Michaelson and Pauline Aasgaard Hoel gathered on March 18 at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church at Norse to commemorate the family’s more than 14 decades of living in the United States.

The Alma Hoel Aars branch of the family hosted the group which worshiped together at the 10:45 a.m. church service and then assembled in the parish hall to share updates, view family treasurers, and reflect on their shared, blessed heritage.

Centerpiece of the program was a video recording made in 1992, which featured several of Pauline and Christopher’s surviving grandchildren recounting their personal memories of the personalities and lifestyles of their grandparents. This recording was especially treasured because all of those grandchildren themselves are no longer with us.

Septemberfest comes to an end

By Simone Wichers-Voss

With a decision made last week, a much-loved, yearly much-anticipated 40-year tradition comes to an end. For some it will come as a complete shock, thinking it might be an early April Fool’s prank or the ultimate Fake News. But it was confirmed, that the members of the Cranfills Gap Septemberfest committee voted to end Septemberfest.

All good things must end, it seems. The amount of work going into the annual town event and the dwindling amount of volunteers to do the organizing, planning and running of the show is the main reason for the committee to put the event to rest. Increasing state regulations regarding food handling and increasing liability insurance were added reasons.

“We would rather go on a good note, than have to be shut down,” committee member Kathie Witte said.
