Halloween carnival planned Friday night

Kirksville News

KIRKSVILLE — Hello everyone. Friday night is the Halloween carnival at the old school, community center. A chili supper starts at 5 p.m. and the doors open at 6 p.m. for the carnival.

As a child, I remember being so anxious to go to the carnival. It was a good time to be with your parents and see all your friends winning prizes. I liked the cake walk and bingo. Now, I like the bingo just so I can sit down.

The halls were decorated with artwork the kids made. I guess it was artwork. I just remember that it was special. It only happened once a year. Now, I can see how much work goes into making the carnival. Trust me – it is a lot of work.

I think it is very special that we can still have a Halloween carnival. I hope everyone will stop by for food and fun. I think they are planning some new games as well as most of the traditional ones.

Don’t forget to drop off your cakes, cookies and candy to help with the cake walk. They could not do it if it was not for all the help of the community.

Saturday night, Susie from the Roundhill store will be having a fish fry. You can get two great meals this weekend at Kirksville. She is having her fish fry on Saturday night instead of Friday because of the carnival. That shows great collaboration to make a great weekend for our community. She will be serving at 6 p.m. You know she will be ready before that, so don’t miss the meal.

Oct. 14 at 2 p.m. will be the annual cookout and hayride at David and Tonika’s farm. There will be no evening service that day.

Something you need to make plans for is the youth performance during the evening service at Full Gospel Tabernacle on Oct. 21 at 6 p.m. Do not miss it. It is really something special.

    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 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.
