Deer hunters were hunting this last week and past weekends. There were youth who shot some bucks and does for the very first time. The grown-ups got some bucks too and some of the deer are being mounted. I got one with my car just before deer season.
Shawn Burris, Asher and Zach Kimbrough and Jake from Moberly spent some time the last week and last two weekends deer hunting and staying with Dean and Pam Burris. Shawn and Zach didn’t go home empty handed.
Elmer Baptist Church had 18 in Sunday school on Sunday and 21 for worship services. There will be no Wednesday night services on Nov. 21 because of Thanksgiving being the next day. On Sunday, Nov. 25, we will have a carry-in soup, sandwich and dessert lunch following morning worship with a mission study following the lunch.
Dean and Pam Burris attended the annual Walsworth Banquet on Sunday at Marceline and visited with Pam’s niece and husband, Kathy and Shane Moore and her great-niece and husband Stephanie and Jonathan Duey. After the banquet they visited with Pam’s brother and wife, Donald and Janet St. Clair. Also home for Thanksgiving was their son, Jon St. Clair who lives in Florida.
The Elmer Community will have a Christmas supper at the Elmer Community Building on Saturday night, Dec. 8. Not sure of the time yet but will let you know later.
