Mrs Joseph Presthus of Al- Sexton Kelleys Are Hosts To 40 At Family Picnic By,The Village Gossip Sexlon — One advantage to operating a lumber yard is having enough boards handy to make extra picnic tables when the relatives gather. Mr and Mrs Bob Kelley were hosts to about 40 members of Mrs Kelley's family. Among the guests were Mi and Mrs Orville Johnson am Olaf, Mr and Mrs George Sorensen and family, Mr and Mrs Ronald Sorensen and family, Mr and Mrs Dean Sorensen and family, Mrs Edith Wall, Mrs Dale Geick and daughter and J. R. Johnson of Jolley and Mr and Mrs Andrew Christensen and Mr and Mrs Ed Miners of Estherville. Mrs Eda Miller of Mason City accompanied her daughter, Mr and Mrs Al Young here to visit her sister, Mrs Fred Jennfngs. The young couple are newlyweds and one of the first additions to their new home is a kitten donated by Mr and Mrs Jennings. They thinned down their cat family all in one day as they also gave five kittens to their niece, Mrs Leo Sabin of Algona. Mrs Carrie Olsen accompanied Mr and Mrs Art Benschoter to South Dakota to attend a brother's golden wedding celebration. Another bachelor has been added for a while as Mrs Wilfora Ward and family are vacationing with her mother, Mrs Nellie Weir of Colo. Wilford will soon be too busy to eat anyway as his assistant, Francis McMahon, will soon go on his vacation. There is also some major repair work planned at the elevator at this time, Mr and Mrs Don Prew entertained Bill Mayer and Ed Fitch at a picnic dinner. In the afternoon Mr Fitch accompanied Harey Hickp to the Hicks t'amiy reunion at the Dwight Ruse home at Titonka. Looks like Ed has found the best way for a bachelor to get out of eating his own cooking. Mr and Ms Bud Elberts went to Monroe, Wis. over the weekenoj for the funeral of Mrs' EJbert's uncle. ' Mr tmd Mrs John Jennings a companied Mr and Mrs Sumnef Parsons to Northwood for the funeral of Mrs Jennings' cousin, /. B. Jaspers.

Martin Mimbach, Ed Fitch and Mrs John Jennings visited at Burt with C. N. Beisch at the nursing home. Although his jroken leg is mending well, he is having a hard time getting ac- :ustomed to his new residence. Mrs Nell Opheim and family attended the First Baptist Church 3ible School. Most of the children in town have been getting used to sum- Tier vacation a little at a time by ittending half day sessions of iheir Bible Schools. Not many \vere as fortunate as Sammy Prew, though, because he was •ewarded for perfect two week iltendance with a new bicvcle. Charles Johnson of Algona nust be related to Davy Crockett since he was brave enough* to accompany L. A. Copp to Sexton or a few days. A lot of boys night have helped him clean out a weedy garden and put a fence., iround the chicken farm, but not nany would help box up one of lis wild swarm of bees. Mrs John Jennings is going to :>e out-talked on new granddaughters, because there is another new set of grandparents in town.: Diane Ruth is the first child 01 Mr and Mrs David Lightly of Des, Moines, born on June 15. Mrs Lightly is the former Ruth Parsons. Although Mr and Mrs Ralph Parsons haven't seen the new baby they are quite sure she doesn't have red hajr. Mr and Mrs Morris Parsons of Algona, the Dick Parsons of Ft. Dodge and the Dwight Parsons' of Waterloo spent Sunday here. Seems like at least one resident of Sexton is always employed at' the Algona Co-Op Creamery. After Don Prew left Ralph Parsons started work there.
