Kirksville clothing closet will be open April 27

Kirksville News

KIRKSVILLE — Hello everyone. Kirksville Baptist Church is still in practice mode for their dramatic presentation of “The Living Lord’s Supper.”

Practice will be Saturday at 6 p.m. The play will be April 27 at 6 p.m.

Kirksville Community Center will have a car show on April 20 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

It will also be a tractor, truck and motorcycle show as well. It will consist of old and new “rides.” So whatever you rid, bring it to the show.

It will also consist of a swap meet. If you are interested in trading up or just selling your ride, this would be a great time to do so. Registration will be from 9 a.m- to noon. Trophies will be awarded at 3 p.m. Registration will be $20. Contact Mike Estes 328-4430 or Don Battles 358-3905 for more information.

The organizers of this car show also are trying to assist the Salvation Army food bank. They are encouraging all visitors and all participants in the show to bring a can of food or any nonperishable food for the food drive.

The craft and vendors fair will be coming up on May 18 at the Community Center. Contact information will be available at 338-6690 or kirksvillecommunitycentergmail.com

Well, we may have missed Good Friday, but we have our potatoes out. Actually, Dad and Mom took care of cutting up the potatoes and planting them.

Last year, we had a terrible time trying to get the (1-40) tractor to run. It was all messed up. We had it in the shop, so thanks Ernie. The tractor starts easy and runs like a top. Dad used the tractor to cover up the potatoes.

The Kirksville clothing closet is usually open on the third Saturday of the month, but since the center is having the car show that day, the clothing bank is going to be open on April 27 from 9 a.m. to noon. They have been closed for the past few months and they need a little preparation time. You know, straighten up the mess. It is almost like spring cleaning.

  • Amanda-Sears-c.jpg Cicada-killer wasps are here

    The extension office has received numerous phone calls over the past couple of weeks about large wasps hovering in yards all over the county.
    This insect is called the cicada killer, and despite its aggressive name, it is not something to be scared of.

    Maintaining a controlled breeding and calving season can be one of the most important management tools for cow-calf producers.
    Uniform, heavier and more valuable calves are key reasons to keep the breeding season short.

    I often flash back to the days from the mid to late 1930s when I was a paper boy.
    There were 10 or 12 of us who rolled out of bed at 5 a.m. every day, jumped on our bicycles and headed downtown to the Glyndon Hotel and picked up our papers for delivery.

    The following were included in last year’s exams and were answered by 16-year-old high school students. The answers are genuine, and we must remember that these youngsters will grow up to vote, marry and become parents. It’s a scary thought.

    Hello everyone.
    I guess everyone is asking, “How much rain did we get?”

    Hello readers, it’s a stormy Monday evening as I write this, and I’ve been thanking the Lord all day for the good rain – over an inch in the gauge now, and it looks like more before morning.
