Our Town: Zoar

Herald Correspondent

EPIC met Wednesday evening with 33 youth and 14 adults. There will be no meeting this week due to the Thanksgiving holiday.

Condolences are extended to the Sakel family on the death Va Rena Sakel. Va Rena and her late husband, Glen “Bud” Sakel, owned a home here in the community and spent quite a lot of time here when their health permitted.  Services for Va Rena were held Sunday at the Nass and Son Funeral Home in Huntingburg.

Ruth Carlisle hopes to return home from Brookside Village Senior Living Community this week. She is grateful for the nice cards she received. If you still wish to send a card to her, you may send it to her at home.

Becky Brockriede, Natalie Meece, Erin Marshall, Amber Brockriede and Delores Hemmer spent Friday and Saturday in Cincinnati shopping and visiting with Laura Hemmer.

The Kiwanis will host a party at Holland Elementary School at 9:30 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 1, for the children. The children will be doing a craft and get to visit Santa. The events committee will be serving lunch from noon to 2 p.m. at the town hall. The tree in the Commons will be lit at 5:30 p.m. and there will be a bake sale then as well.

Several persons from our area attended the community Thanksgiving dinner at Holland Sunday evening and the RIAL service at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Huntingburg later in the evening.
