Our Town: Zoar

Herald Correspondent

Jonathon and Katherine Hemmer of Indianapolis spent the weekend here with their grandmother, Delores Hemmer.

The United Methodist Women’s district meeting will be held Aug. 18 at Vincennes Community United Methodist Church. Reservations need to be turned in by Aug. 1. Anyone wanting to go should let Ruth Blackgrove or the church office know.

The focus now is on the Mosquito Fest. Work nights will be held in the grove on Tuesday and Thursday nights of this week.  Next week help will be needed each night and especially Wednesday evening, Aug. 1, when the tents will go up. Thursday, Aug. 2, is food preparation day when potatoes will need to be peeled, cucumbers and onions sliced, eggs prepared, slaws made and more. A lot of help is needed.

Entries are being sought for the stationary parade, quilt show and produce show. Quilts do not have to be made by the one exhibiting them and there are several categories from pieced, embroideried, to baby quilts and wall hangings. People having gardens are asked to enter some of their produce in the produce show. You might win a ribbon for your effort. The children’s games on Saturday afternoon are always fun and the adults have as much fun as the children in the egg toss (raw eggs). The children are usually lined up for the kiddie’s tractor pull, which begins at 4 p.m.
