New Year At Sexton Has Its Dps, Downs SEXTON - Sexton folks were Just happy to see the year end With all the local residents still In reasonably good health. The best evidence things are getting better was the family Christinas dinner held at the August Kirschbaum home. The Leo Kirschbaum family and the Roland Bode family were guests and Susan and Diane Bode, home from college, were happy to find grandmother able to be hostess to the annual affair. The Leo Kirschbaums were among a number in the area who wondered if they would really celebrate on Christmas due to a siege of the flu. Christmas vacations are spent in various ways but we'd much prefer Joyce Gabrielson's to Glenn's way of spending the week. Joyce accompanied a girl friend and family on a trip to Florida and the girls will fly home in time for the opening of school. Glen left the day after Christmas to enter Methodist hospital at Rochester for surgery. After his stay at the hospital he will still have about six weeks of recuperating to take it easy at home. Ifs times like these when good neighbors are nice to have. 2—Algeria (la.) Upper Des Moinet Thursday, Jan. 4, 1968 It's better to think twice before asking the Roy Hansens how their holiday season went. In one week Roy's sister, Cora, broke her leg in a fall from her wheel chair and celebrated her 84th birthday at the hospital where she had surgery for the injury. After seeing her through this, the Hansens received word their son, Dick, had lost his home in Maine in a fire. They were all safe and found a new place to stay only to have Mrs. Hansen fall, breaking some ribs. News from former residents makes us a little more 'satisifed with Iowa! Mrs. Metta Wise reported snow in San Diego where she is making her home with a daughter and this really made her feel at home although she went west to get away from these Iowa winters I Mr. and Mrs. Martin Mimbach also report 30 degrees at Tucson, Ariz. where they went to enjoy the winter sun. A letter from the Max.Strat- tons makes us realize how fast the kids have grown up; their oldest son, Larry, has completed service in the Navy and is now married and working for a lumber company at Portland, Ore. Their son, John, has received a medical discharge from the Navy after a knee injury and is now at home and working in a store. The kids are growing up around here, too. Nick Alexander has received his commission after completing helicopter training in the Air Force and was married to Julie Johnson during his 30- day leave at home. Mr. and Mrs. Lyle Alexander are having an open house at their home for the young couple on Sunday afternoon, Jan. 7, for any friends who would like to call. Nick will be leaving for Oakland, Calif, and overseas duty in January. Sexton will greatly miss the young couple moving to Corwith the first of the year. A farewell party was held for Mr. and Mrs. Roger Arndorfer at their home Thursday evening. Another party the same evening celebrated two birthdays at the Clair Hovey home. Gina Hovey came all the way from Korea to find a new sister, Carol, with the same birthdate. A former resident of this area, Mrs. Henry Nelson now living at the Sisson Nursing Home in Humboldt, will be celebrating her 94th birthday in January and she continues to be in good health. The prettiest Christmas tree in town enjoyed by everyone was in the yard of Mr. and Mrs. E. Pratt, the newest residents, who bought the house formerly owned by Henry Bailey on the blacktop. The town may hold its own with the big city yet. The reports on the finished new addition at the station are so complimentary it would seem it will have to be called Ed's Dinner Club to live up to the advance descriptions. The Sexton Friendly Club will have its January meeting on a Saturday afternoon to accomodate the hostess, Mrs. Leo Thomsen, who works during the week. The club members also enjoyed an excellent chicken dinner for their Christmas outing at the cafe in Burt. Their project of ten gift packages for patients at Wood* ward Home was also a success with the bags being well-packed wiUi gift* and edibles.
