Our Town: Zoar

Herald Correspondent

Several members of the Katterhenry family left Friday for Williamstown, Kentucky, to visit “The Ark.” Those making the trip were Joice Katterhenry, Phyllis Katterhenry, Mike and Jean Krieg, Greg and Diane Mason and Bill and Patty Nance. They returned home Saturday.

Perhaps it was the early morning rain or just simply the overcast skies, but the turnout for the Tin Fest Car Show on Saturday had fewer entries than in the past. Trophy winners in the tractor category were Bud Meyer, Owen Kinker and Tom Kahle. The car trophies went to Jayson Shoultz, Chuck and Stacy McCandless, Ron Wells, Paul Schwartz, Joe Schwenk, Jerry and Donna Fisher, Michael Oedink, Brian Eckert and James Martin. The committee wishes to thank the sponsors and all who helped to make the show a success. The proceeds went to the community club.

The Jeff and Natalie Meece family were invited to Indianapolis Saturday, where they were one of six families inducted into the Indiana Foster Family Hall of Fame. They toured the Colts Training Facility where they met with the Colts’ coaching staff and the general manager of the Colts. They were luncheon guests and took part in the All Pro Dad’s event, where they participated in doing things as a family.

In the church league, softball games this week include the Zoar Men playing the Dale Bible Church at 8 p.m. Tuesday. They also will be playing Thursday evening against St. Mary’s at 8 p.m. The women will play Wednesday against St. Mary’s at 8 p.m. All games are played at Holland Park.

Vacation Bible school will held from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Monday, June 17, at the church.

The Mosquito Fest Committee is continuing to meet and plan for this year’s festival. The Color Run that was so popular last year will be part of the festival again this year. Some improvements are being made to the Grove and other events are being discussed. The committee is always looking for new and more entries for the stationary parade. This year’s new homemade ice cream flavor is being debated.

Mark your calendars for Oct. 13. On that date, the church will be celebrating its 175th birthday. Plans are being made for the morning service and the catered noon meal. More details will be available as the day draws near.

Happy Father’s Day to all the dads.
