Our Town: Zoar

By DOLORES HEMMER

Justin Hilsmeyer has moved into and gotten settled in his new home in the community.  When things return to normal following the coronavirus, he hopes to have a cookout or open house for family and friends.

Bags of Easter treats were handed out at the church on Easter morning. The treats were presented in a safe manner with the children remaining in vehicles with their families.  Sixty bags were handed out. The remainder of the bags were taken to others who might be shut in because of the virus risk.

Services from the church have been streaming on YouTube. This week there were services on Maundy Thursday and two on Easter — sunrise and Easter morning worship services.

We will long remember this Easter! I would normally have had a house full of family and friends on this day and I’m sure many of you can identify with this.  Because my family has been concerned about my health, I have honored their wishes and stayed in.  Today marks my 28th day “in.”  It has been quite an experience, but it has been good in a number of ways.
