Agnes Kruize and I were among those who spent some time in Albany over the weekend attending their Pioneer days threshing show. Her son Dennis is a member of the Stearns co Pioneer club and I had an opportunity to visit with him some on Sat. One of the people that I missed at our Threshing bee this yr. was Vern “the one man band”. I had a chance to visit with him some in Albany, he had an accident this summer and burned his fingers so was unable to play for a while, he hopes to return to Donnelly next yr. En route to Albany I stopped at the good Sam home in Hoffman to visit with Thelma Leegard.

Later I stopped by the location of the good Shepard Lutheran church to see the progress being made in preparation for its re location to it's new home ne of Morris where it arrived on the 23rd. If all goes as planned the congregation hopes to be worshiping in the building by thanksgiving
