This month, six locations in the Tri-County Area will serve as collection sites for Operation Christmas Child—the world’s largest Christmas project of its kind. The annual Samaritan’s Purse project is a favorite of many tri-county area residents, families, churches and groups who spread joy to millions of children around the world by filling shoeboxes with items like a doll or soccer ball, other fun toys, school supplies, hygiene items and notes of encouragement.
Fall is here and it is time for the annual October Fest. This year it will be Sunday, Oct. 4, after the 10:30 a.m. church service. There will be bratwurst, sauerkraut, potato salad, apple sauce and much more. Good Shepherd Lutheran is located on US 19 north next door to the winery.
