Hope you are enjoying the beautiful and vibrant fall colors all around us. And, farmers have been blessed with nice, dry fall weather to gather in the soybean and corn crops. 

Thank you to Pastor Lane Zaffke for conducting the worship service at Wilmington Church last Sunday, and for sharing his musical talent by playing the violin along with the hymns.

Recently, Don and Eric Ingvalson traveled westward to visit with Jessie Ingvalson and husband Charlie Elverson at Rigby, Idaho. They enjoyed the beautiful sites and scenery, and also did some hiking.
