Highlights of German Fest and Suds & Sounds

The 2017 German Fest and Suds & Sounds was filled with memories and laughter. The community and visitors enjoyed a German sausage meal, live music, crafts and other activities.

At Paige’s Biergarten, festival goers had live music, food and shade. In the Home Merc, artists in the area had paintings and other art work displaying around the room. Volunteers in the senior citizen’s building scooped homemade ice cream for sundaes and other snacks.

Suds & Sounds had several bands, including local Mason Kleman & The Ace of Spades. Those in attendance were able to enjoy food, drinks and dancing.

Canned Food Drive

Starting July 22, the We Care Food Pantry will be having a canned food drive. The food drive will go on for three weeks, July 22, July 29 and August 2. Throughout these weeks, we ask for canned foods and also peanut butter jars. There will be boxes in the back of church to place the items in. After the three weeks are over, the cans and jars will be brought to the food pantry to be distributed there. Thanks in advance!


Summer Library Fun

For five years, Felice Acker has lead an afternoon of reading and crafting every Tuesday during June and July at the Dimmitt library. Every week, children who attend listen to a book reading, complete a craft and enjoy a snack that relates to the book.

This Tuesday, Felice read the book Stone Soup. The children were given a plastic version of the foods in the book and made the soup as they read the book. Afterwards, they split into groups and were given a grocery store sales ad and a paper with a pot printed on it. They cut foods out of the sales ad and glued it into the pot to make the soup that their group wanted. Before they left, they were given a cup of “stone soup” to try and a pot of herbs to grow.

King’s Manor Auction Items

There’s something for everybody—men, women, and children—at the big fund raising auction that’s a vital part of the 39th annual King’s Manor Founders Day Barbecue coming up Saturday (July 15) at the Hereford ISD Administration Building.

Prior to the evening’s entertainment, an exciting array of trips, events and items will be auctioned to the highest bidder.

A local favorite is a steak dinner for eight couples graciously served by Steve and Sharon Hodges in the back yard of their Hereford residence. This rare medium, well done, has prompted spirited competitive bidding for a number of years.

If fishing is your game, this year’s auction provides the chance to float away on an adventure. A guided float trip for fly fishing for two on the productive Gunnison River with Dragonfly Anglers of Crested Butte, Colorado includes all necessary instruction, gear, and lunch on the river, along with a $500 gift card to cover accommodations for two nights.

There are several items just for kids—or maybe their grandparents—among auction offerings.

Classic pedal toys head the list, including a vintage cast iron John Deere 4020 diesel pedal tractor with a wagon, in pristine condition, and an equally pristine pedal-powered raging red fire truck replete with ladders and a hose reel.

A fold-closed sandbox custom made by Scott and Missie Wilcox will afford good clean fun in the sand for the children or grandchildren of the winning bidder.

Other auction items include a WTAMU sports experience package, a chain saw, diamond necklace, Swiss watch, and horseshoe art from Ted Ray and Janet Coleman. An array of items from art to automotive will also be available at the silent auction.
