Fall is upon us and most of the harvesting has been completed, bales are being transported to their winter locations and the calf crop is being sorted and on the move to the sales rings.
There were a number of out-of-state visitors in the community this past week.
Richard Schmidt of Mt. View, Mo., and his sister, Nadine Szymkowiak of Independence, Mo., visited some of their old stomping grounds this past week, which included a hike to Castle Rock to find their carved initials. Their parents, Ben and Frieda Schmidt, were former em-
ployees of Les Brown. While living in the community, they attended church at the Bethel Wolf Point Mennonite Church. With the church building now gone, they were only able to stroll through the cemetery, noting the monuments of the people they once worshiped with.
Schmidt attended the Lustre Bible Academy, now Lustre Christian High School, his freshman year. Not wanting to disrupt the classes, they only drove by the school.
Next on their agenda was a drive to Fort Peck. It was much to their disappointment that everything was closed, due to the government shutdown.
Their final stop was in Glasgow, to spend 1½ days with Ralph and Carolyn Fauth.
Erwin and Angela Rempel, of Harrisburg, Va., made a stop off in Lustre on their return trip home from the West Coast and also a stop in Great Falls to see Howard Eitzen.
While in the community, they were houseguests of Loren and Diane Unrau.
Saturday evening, his LCHS classmates, Loren and Diane Unrau, Barb and Allen Wall, neighbors, Marin and Karen Fast, and cousins, Jon and Deanna Kliewer, Don and Eileen Traeholt and Karen Waller of Plentywood, enjoyed a supper gathering at the Traeholt’s to catch up old times, changes in the community, and events in our personal life travels.
Sunday morning, they got an early start on the road to be in Bloomfield for the morning services where Angela’s dad was a former pastor.
After church was over, Dwaine and Vivian Wall and Eldon and Elaine Unrau were surprised with a visit from a cousin, Tom and Judi Hoffman of Oregon.
They enjoyed a Sunday dinner then at Dwaine and Vivian Wall’s before they travelled on to Malta.
The Glendive Alliance Church was the setting for a 50th wedding anniversary celebration for Tim and Linda Wall. Some of the family members attending included their three sons, Jerry and Tony of Billings and Rodney of Sidney and their spouses, Roger and Terry Wall and their granddaughter Abigail of Jordan Valley, Ore., Ethel Wall of Glasgow, Elaine Unrau and Dwaine and Vivian Wall.
Last Saturday, Margaret Heidner was honored at an early 90th birthday open house at the Community Bible Church in Wolf Point. Their children, Susan and Bob Schlack, Bob and Carolyn Lee, Dwaine and Vivian Wall, Bob and Bev Peterson and their daughter, Heather, David and Janette Barnette and daughter, Amanda, were all able to attend.
Margaret’s actual birthday is in December, but the children thought that weather-wise, it might be easier to celebrate now.
Heide Yost traveled to College Station, Texas, over the weekend to attend the wedding of her younger brother, Devin to Christi McDowell. She also met her parents, Deb and Wayne Yost there.
The wedding was held at Moore Ranch on the Brazos and honeymooned at Corpus Christi, Texas. The couple will reside in Montgomery, Texas, where Devin is employed by Repol Oil & Gas Company, doing GIS mapping. The bride is employed by W.M. Dewey Trucking as a project manager.
