Wilmington Lutheran Church news: 

Sun., January 17 – At the deadline time to submit news for this column, nothing had been lined up yet for a worship service. Please watch for announcements on Wilmington Lutheran Church MN on Facebook, an email from the council president, or a phone call to those who do not have access to this technology. 

Because of the uncertainty of week-to-week worship services due to availability of supply pastors, Wilmington Church announcements will be included with Immanuel Church’s announcements during their weekly worship services aired on Facebook Sunday mornings at 9 a.m. @ImmanuelCaledonia, and on their website. And, also on Wilmington Lutheran Church MN Facebook site and the Wilmington News column in the Caledonia Argus.

This is YOUR news column, encompassing the Wilmington township area. I appreciate the input of those who continue to provide news items and strongly encourage more of you to partake in making the column interesting and informative. Please contact me with your family news, events, births, birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, deaths, church, local government, 4-H news, etc. 

Call me at home 507-498-3461, mail to 21465 Southview Rd., Spring Grove, Minn. 55974, or email I submit the column to the Argus on Sunday, late afternoon or early evening.
