Our Town: Zoar

Herald Correspondent

Bill and Patty Nance returned home on Thursday following a short vacation in Tennessee. The couple visited Steve Nance in Parsons, James and Kathy McCoy in Decaturville and George and Naerena Nance in Lexington. They had the opportunity to visit with several nieces and nephews, do some shopping and crafting and even helped a nephew prepare for a costume party at his church. They were pleased that the costume won first place.

EPIC met Wednesday night with 43 youth and 17 adults. The menu for this Wednesday evening will feature Mexican dishes.

The descendants of Frank and Amelia Katterhenry held their annual family reunion at the church on Sunday. Sixty-one family members attended and shared the noon meal.

Rose and Donnie Brang celebrated their 22nd wedding anniversary with a trip to Turkey Run State Park. They enjoyed the beautiful autumn weather, did some hiking and visited some of the covered bridges in the area.

Several persons from the area attended the Raider Revue at Southridge on Sunday afternoon. This year’s revue was based on Broadway musicals. The students did a great job.

Sunday will the 175th anniversary of the Zoar United Methodist Church. Reservations have been closed for the dinner, but we invite any and all to come for the celebration and fellowship that begins at 9 a.m.

The women’s fall auction will be held Tuesday, Oct. 15, at the church. This is always a fun–filled evening. There will be many items to bid on so bring a friend and come for the evening. The fun begins at 7 p.m.

The time has arrived to be preparing the Shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child. Many items are needed and must be small enough to fit into a shoebox. The goal this year is 100 boxes. You are invited to make your own or you may contribute money for the project and the youth of the church will shop for you. A list of items or suggestions will be in next week’s news column.

Fundraising continues for the new building in the grove. More contributions are needed if the project is to be completed for next year’s Mosquito Fest. This is a much needed improvement for the festival and other events of the church.
