Washburn (13 June1968)

Mr. and Mrs. Ted Kissling received word from their son, Larry, that he has arrived O.K. May 25 at De Nang, Vietnam. He said the weather was rainy with 110 degrees. We thought our temperature in the 90’s was hot but that wouldn’t compare with 110 degrees. We also understand that Elmer Krause, son of Mr. and Mrs. Alvin Krause, has arrived at Saigon. Good luck to both boys and a safe return home.

Mr. and Mrs. Dave Krutsch are building a new barn. Construction was started last week by contractors. The building will be 36 by 110 feet.

A shed on the Leonard St. John farm south of Cannonville corner was destroyed by fire Sunday night. The fire department was called and saved the other buildings. Mr. and Mrs. David St. John, son of the Leonard St. Johns, moved onto the farm about a month ago.

The Cannonville Ladies Aid will meet at the church June 19 at 1:30 p.m. a lunch will be served following the meeting.

Mr. and Mrs. Charles Havlicek, Sr., attended the Bohemian Lodge picnic at the Lodge Hall in Levis Sunday. A large crowd was in attendance, with members of lodges from several places also attending. Dinner was served at noon.
