Parker Anthony Arnold was born on Mar 18th at scmc to Gabe and Lana Arnold of Donnelly.
This week I am going to write a little bit about the history of the bee. It all began in 1965 as a fundraiser for a proposed nursing home in Morris, the West Central Lutheran Home. Before they could get enough funds to do it, the "Villa" got built, so they built a Senior Living facility instead. The bee was organized by some churches in the area. One gentleman from Donnelly had a separator, and another had a steam engine, so that is kind of how it got started in Donnelly. The first two years it was held on Fri. and Sat because our steam engine operator would not thrash on Sunday. WCLH ran it for two years 1965-66 no show in '67. In '68, the Donnelly commercial (now community) club took it over and has run it ever since.  A reminder this year's show is Aug. 28-30th featuring Ford and Massy Ferguson, stay tuned for the next time and day of the community club meeting.
