The upcoming program at the Wayland museum on Tuesday evening Nov. 9 will be conducted by John Wulforst who is a retired soil scientist. Knowledge of the soil in our own area is vital to all of us. For example; some of the questions that might come up are:




Is the composition of the soil suitable for construction?

What crop would grow the best here?

What type of soil is it?

John has been a consultant for years for landscape evaluations and environmental concerns.


Fran Schubmehl will also speak about the Wooly Mammoth uncovered here many years ago. All are welcome to this interesting program at 7 p.m.


Next Saturday afternoon, Nov. 6, a Penny Social will be held to benefit the sisters Kitchen Table Ministry at the Cohocton Elementary School building. With the proceeds from the social, Sister Myra and Sister Mary Jean are able to restock the canned goods for needy families. They also distribute day-old baked goods from Tops Market on a weekly basis as well as provide transportation for appointments. Donations of good used items, house plants, games, toys, baked goods, etc. for the social are appreciated and can be left at the church office this week.


Halloween is more than costumes, home and outdoor decorations have increased in popularity as well. People drive around to view the lights similar to Christmas. Jim Shetler gets in the mood early by planning a spook house. He came and cut our corn stalks for decorating. I understand his spook house has been a favorite with the children of Wayland for several years. Jim lives at 304 Third Ave. and invites all children to come 6-9 p.m. Sunday evening and have some scary fun. The price is right; no charge. That’s a wonderful gesture on his part for the neighborhood children.


Columnist Andy Rooney said, “It’s an unfortunate fact that bad news makes better news than good news.” Maybe that is why these home town columns are so welcome each week, no crime news.


Lisa Spencer and her Aunt, Geraldine Recktenwald spent last Tuesday visiting John and MaryAnn Didas, Lisa’s Aunt and Gerry’s sister in law in Churchville.


Sunday’s winner of the 50 week club at the Perkinsville Fire Hall was  Donna Gessner.


I still have a couple of rose buds waiting to open, if the weather stays warm they may have a chance to open and bloom yet before snow.


Happy Birthday greetings to Jack Conrad, Nov. 1, and Ron Sahrle, Nov 4.
