2019 March 18 St. Thomas News
Upcoming mass for St. Thomas are with Father Burns is The Easter Vigil on April 20 at 7:00 pm.

Masses at St. Anne’s in Le Sueur are Saturdays at 5:15 p. m., Sundays 8 and 10:30 a. m

About 100 attended mass at St. Thomas this March 17th with Father Burns offering mass and Marvin Halloran serving. Todd Sullivan read the Liturgy and Margo Kemp led us in song. T. C., Kevin and Beth Halloran and Becky Block presented the Gifts. Eucharistic administers were Debbie O’Connell and Jim Oak. Meghan and her Mom, Muriel, and brought Meghan’s toddler son, Jude Boelter, an entertainer during mass.

Jeannette Gloege and Tilly Sullivan enjoyed Mulligan Stew in St. Henry on Wednesday, after Jeannette, Tilly and Dick and Jeannie Hayden, Belle Plaines Grand Marshalls appeared on KCHK . Tom also enjoyed visiting with Mike Wilmes, the fellow who writes his column in the Agri News paper.

Gregory Joseph Groh of Evansville, Indiana passed away on March 8, 2019 at Deaconess Midtown Hospital. Greg was born to the late Clem and Alice Byrne Groh in the city of Le Sueur in 1948. Greg’s grandparents, Dick and Cecelia Byrne, formerly lived in the big brick house on Main Street in St. Thomas.

Congratulations to the Le Center 2019 Royality were crown Friday night: Elizabeth Christian the new Miss Leprechaun, Julia McCabe is Miss Shamrock, Megan Wagner is Miss Irish Rose, and our own Anna Holden got the John Gregory O’Connell award.

Congratulations also to the Belle Plaine 2019 Royality.
Miss Shamrock  is Katie Piampiano  The Princesses are Allison Dvorak & Courtney Meger. Dick and Jeannie Hayden were Belle Plaine’s Grand Marshals. Aiden Fogarty one of those good lookin’ Irish Lads is on the Burns Branch of our St. Thomas Tree.




Bob and Becky Block returned on March 14 after spending a week in Panama.  Lo and behold, Gene and Sharon Retka were on the same trip through Wendinger Travel! A lot of St. Thomas reminiscing occurred over the week! While there, they visited Panama Viejo, the 1st Spanish city in Panama, founded in 1519! Another beautiful city was El Valle, which is nestled in the 2nd largest volcano crater in the world! Gene, Bob, and Becky mustered up the courage to zip line through the rainforest canopy next to a beautiful waterfall. They cruised through the Panama Canal aboard the Pacific Queen. They were lowered a total of 86 feet in 3 steps. In the province of Colon, they visited the Castle of San Lorenzo, built at the mouth of the Chagres River, to protect the entrance to a trail used by the Spaniards to transport gold. A definite highlight of the trip was a canoe trip up the Gatun River to an Embera Indigenous Village, where the tribe greeted them with music and dancing and a traditional Embera lunch, served in a banana leaf. The last 2 days were spent deep in the heart of the rain forest in Soberania National Park near Gamboa. The daily 90 degree weather was a pleasant change from this never ending MN winter!

Chuck and Maria Retka, Bruce and Cathy Halloran, were Tom and Loni Graham were among many who enjoyed the FFA Pancake and Sausage Breakfast at the Belle Plaine School Sunday morning.

A good crowd showed up for the KCHK Jam Session at the Road Haus in Henderson on Sunday. Among some of the St. Thomas connections were Fran Tiegs, Mary Connolly Bill Byrne, and Ryan Halloran enjoyed the music.

Til next time, Have a good one, folks.

Upcoming mass for St. Thomas are with Father Burns are March 17th at 9:00 am and The Easter Vigil on April 20 at 7:00 pm.

Masses at St. Anne’s in Le Sueur are Saturdays at 5:15 p. m., Sundays 8 and 10:30 a. m

Our sympathies to Gordy Eischens on the passing of his brother, Myron. Gordy married into one of oldest families in St. Thomas by hooking up with Margie Halloran, and a great addition he is.

For the second year in a row, Pete Burns has been named the Le Sueur Fire Department’s Fire Fighter of the year. Pete’s a busy Daddy of twins, Everett and Weston.

Parties galore this weekend. Davie Connelly was among the many who enjoyed Bob Graham’s 30th Birthday Party in Henderson Saturday evening.

Brittney Boelter Abrahamson of rural Henderson hosted a lovely Baby Shower in their new home in honor of Kellie Boelter on Saturday . Grandparents of Baby Boelter are Tim and Mary Jo Boelter, and Kenny and Gwen Schultz. When asked “Got any favorite names picked out yet, Jack?” Jack quipped “Yeah, ours!” Jack Boelter...Kellie Boelter, familiar rings to them. Jack and Kellie are first time parents and baby is due May 2019.

Another Baby Shower, this shower is in honor of Dorothy Koller hosted by Grandma Colleen and Aunties Stephanie and Brittany Koller. Guests enjoyed Baby Bingo. Soon to be Daddy Michael parked our cars in the snow and rain and helped any way he could. Michael and Dorothy are first time parents and baby is due May 2019.

Happy belated wedding anniversary to Dale “Maynard” and Colleen Rohloff. March 11th and it’s 13 years, folks. Colleen’s sure he has reservations at some romantic spot with candles plus wine. Dale and Colleen received an ultrasound printout in a valentine from son, Chad and Brittany Koller of Cottage Grove. They got it right this time.

Bella Jo Nielsen, Justin and Kellie’s, was baptized at St. Anne’s on Sunday, March 10th. Sponsors are
Jennifer Von Lehe and Mitch Koller. Guests enjoyed a great lunch at Justin and Kelly’s following the Baptism.

Partying continues this weekend in Belle Plaine and Le Center, celebrating St. Patrick s Day. Le Center’s Candidate Talent Show happened last Saturday at the American Legion Post 108 with seven talented candidates participating. Our own Anna Holden, Aric and Jill’s, entertained with her smile, sing song voice, and a little help from two former grand marshals in the game of Irish Jeopardy. It doesnt matter where you celebrate, just have fun and stay safe.

Henderson History
03/08/19 04:18 PM
To all Henderson area businesses, schools, churches, organizations and government units:

Next year it will 25 years since the community history book, Henderson Then and Now 1852-1994, was published. It is time for a sequel! The Henderson Ladies Tourist Club, GFWC, one of the oldest organizations in Henderson, is sponsoring the sequel production.

If your entity has a story in the old book, please review your records and bring your history up to date. If you are new, please tell us your story. All responders may include pictures or illustrations. The length of your story may be several paragraphs or several pages depending on your individual history. To keep the printing costs down, all materials will be submitted to the printer in electronic form. If you can submit your story electronically, it will help speed up the process. If not, we can work around your requirements.

The goal of the book committee is to get all material collated, edited and into book form, ready to submit to the publisher for delivery as Christmas 2019 gifts. As articles flow in, chapters will be assembled and edited. The committee is thinking of producing a soft-cover book with photos in black and white throughout except for a possible color section in the center. There will be a table of contents and a comprehensive index, perhaps 200 pages in total. Final cost will be determined by the success of pre-publication sales, number of pages and number of copies ordered, hopefully a sale price in the $15 to $20 range.

Please help with this publication by having your story to the book committee by December 31, 2018. (DEADLINE EXTENDED) Don’t’ wait and don’t be left out. Every story is important, from a business of one to an organization like the Ladies Tourist Club with less than 10 members; your story belongs in the book. This small but active club needs the help of the community to accomplish the goal of having books available for holiday gift-giving for 2019.

Submit stories to Mike Reinhardt using his email: mreinhardt2008@gmail.com.
If at all possible, please submit your article as a Word or text file.

For help or questions, please contact Mike Reinhardt at 507-248-3799 or Beth Cornish at 507-560-0153 or Sue Felmlee at 507-665-2008.

The Henderson Independent staff is serving as the technical advisors for the book project and there are some historical records from the newspaper available for your reference. Please let the committee know if you need access to those files.

Southeast District President, GFWC (MN) and Treasurer, Ladies Tourist Club

Spring Flood Outlook - report March 7th

Report attached below.

Some notes from report:

Probability of Exceeding Flood Stages
Including the forecast snow for this weekend, long range probabilities for spring flooding include:
At least 50 percent chance of reaching major flood stage in the Minnesota, Crow, St. Croix, and Mississippi River from St. Paul downstream.
Most others have a reasonable chance of reaching at minor or moderate flood stage.
Severity of flooding will depend on how fast we melt that snowpack.

Primary Driver for Flood Severity
We’ve established that the flood threat is high. The severity of the flooding will depend on the weather conditions for the rest of March into April.
Best case: near normal temperatures, little rain; ideally temperatures reach the upper 30s or 40s during the day and drop below freezing at night.
Worst case: extended period of warm, wet weather; temperatures in the 50s-60s during the day, lows in the 40s, high dewpoints.
