St. Anne’s Catholic Church in Le Sueur will have masses with Father Chris Shofner: Saturdays at 5:15 p. m. and Sundays at 8 a. m. and 10:30 a. m.. Check the website for more instructions.

A nice crowd enjoyed the Year end picnic at the St. Thomas Sportsmans Park. Good food and good company... always.

On the road again, Tom and Loni Graham and Diane Burns toured the Farmall Land Museum in Avoca, Iowa. The museum is operated by a former International Harvester dealer and features many unique and one of a kind tractors and implements. Sadly the museum is closing at the end of September and the contents auctioned off. They also toured the Buddy Holly crash sight, birthplaces of Maymie Eisenhower and John Wayne, a few of the bridges of Madison County, the Irish Church.
Crops looked good. Harvest is getting close.

As St. Thomas History has it, “a couple of stores had been serving our St. Thomas community for many years. Some of the early proprietors have been forgotten, but the later ones are still recalled. The old Cassin Store stood on the sight of the Alois Gill property. In about 1928-29 John Callahan, Sr., leased the store which was behind the St. Thomas Social Hall, built in 1910, by the Catholic congregation. Callahan, also called ‘Old Johnny’, rented the Dance hall for dances, weddings and anniversary gatherings and showers when the church didn’t need it for dinners and bazaars. The structure belonged to Cassin and was torn down in the late 1950’s. In the 1934, Callahan built a new store at the same location” According to LS- Town on the River. John Callahan also owned a store in Henderson. “He called it a cafe, and stocked it with candy and served ice cream.” According to the Henderson Then and Now book.

What a very different start of a school year for students this year!
Take care and God bless.

Chuck and Jessica Retka enjoyed the classic cars and visited with friends on Tuesday night in Henderson.

Davie Connelly and several of his friends helped thresh the wheat crop at Pioneer Power on Saturday.

Cari, Katelyn and Madelyn Landwer, the Baumgards, Jodi, Andy and Anna and Grandma Loni enjoyed Tyler Vlasak’s 13th Birthday at his home in Eden Prairie on Friday.

Maynard and Colleen Rohloff hosted a gathering of campers and kids, “mostly family” on their farm, Saturday. Mike Feeney entertained.

Oral history has it: The war in Europe was flaring and rumors that prices were going to go sky high the next year brought on this question, overheard by Jack Burns, “Charlie said to Dad (Tim Burns, Sr., and Jack could do a good imitation of his brother-in- law, Charlie.) ‘Well, Tim, what do you think? Should I build her a new house?” and Tim must have said yes, cuz the house Charlie built in 1942 for Madelyne was a 3-bedroom, cozy Cape Cod style home, she lived in for the rest of her life. It saw many happy gatherings, and heard much happy talk and if those walls could talk... Charlie passed away, in August of 1996, and after Madelyne passed at 100 years of age, she followed him in August of 2018. After much thought and discussion the house that Charlie built was burned this weekend, a controlled burn, practice for the fire department. Integrity intact.

Stay safe and God bless.

Emily Kriha Moore Vlasak passed away August 23, 2020. Emily attended District #103 Country School and graduated from Montgomery High School in the mid 40’s. She was one of twelve waitresses at our Mother and Dad’s June 1948 wedding along with Anna Mae and Mary Shaughnessy, and Mary David. Mother was one of the waitress at Jack and Emily’s September 1949 wedding.
Our condolences to the family.

Emily Krekleberg made the “Regional News” the August 17th issue. Emily has found her passion as an Extension educator in health and farm safety with the University of Minnesota. Emily, the daughter of Dale and Patty Krekelberg grew up 5 miles west of St. Thomas told her family’s story. Both her dad lost his leg and her brother Jake lost his arm in farm related accidents, and how accidents effects not only the individual, but impacts the family.

Diane Burns was clearing brush at her daughter Deb’s on the banks of the Credit River Saturday, when she was stung multiple times by a swarm of yellow jacket wasps. She was transported to St. Francis Hospital by ambulance where she was treated for anaphylactic shock. Diane was released and Saturday enjoyed lunch with Deb, and sisters Colleen and Loni at ‘Charlie’s on Prior Lake.’ She says she’s doing good. Beware of the wasps and bees.

Stay well, stay safe, and God bless.
