Our Town: Zoar

Herald Correspondent

This is Mosquito Fest week. Many are working hard to make this year’s festival a success. Some new things are happening and some of the old “tried and true” happenings are being repeated. A gift basket will be given away both Friday and Saturday nights. People need only to register and be there for the drawing at the close of each evening’s events. There is something for everyone at this year’s festival. The fun begins Friday evening.

Doug, Alaina and Saoirse Hall of Casper, Wyoming, and Jesse Norman of Manchester, Missouri, arrived Saturday afternoon to spend the week with family members and attend the Mosquito Fest.

Mike and Kim Wampler hosted a cookout at their home Saturday evening for the Thursday evening Bible study group. Eighteen members of the group and friends attended.

Jeff and Natalie Meece and Jeremy and Erin Marshall returned Sunday afternoon from a week in Hawaii.

A birthday dinner, at the home of Ron and Becky Brockriede, was held Sunday afternoon to help Bella Ransome celebrate her 9th birthday. A cookout meal was served and fun and games ensued.
