Haigler Happenings - August 23, 2010

The BWTelcom crew has been busy laying lines for fiber optics in Haigler in spite of the above 90 degree weather.  The improved internet service will be appreciated.
A going away to college party for Alicia Crouse was hosted by Stan and Laneta Carlock last Thursday evening with a cookout, salads and a big cheese cake.  Those attending were Steve and Jody, Alicia, Angela, and Jared Crouse, Marlin Crouse, Merna and Charlie Mulligan.  Alicia is attending Hastings College.
School has started at Haigler Elementary school with 15 students, Kindergarten through 6th grade. 
Noel Klein of Yuma celebrated his 3rd birthday on Friday, August 20.  His great grandmother, Laura Pearl Wall drove to Yuma to help him celebrate at the home of his grandparents, Carol and Jay Flaming.  Other guests were Jailyn and Laney Mekelburg and brother Logan.  His mother was teaching school but she and Greg joined the group for a delicious lunch.  The Klein boys love cars and trains so the birthday cake was decorated with a huge red car.  Jailyn brought a set of bowling pins and a red ball which furnished a lot of fun along with the train and car put together sets of trains and car tracks.
The Haigler community lost one of its oldest and best residents this past week.  Lester Adams died August 19, 2010.  He shall be greatly missed.  Funeral services were held Monday morning at 10 a.m. At the Haigler Lutheran Church, with military honors and burial at the Haigler Cemetery.  Deepest sympathies are extended to Lester's family.
The Collicott sisters, LaNeta, Myrna, and Galena spent Thursday in McCook.  They enjoyed a Mexican fare lunch, celebrating Galena's August 21  birthday.
The Haigler Red Hatters carpooled to Benkelman on Friday for their August outing.  Hostesses Jeannie Blecha and Carolyn Rosenfelt had a delightful luncheon and afternoon planned.  The group met at the Senior Center for a delicious chicken fried steak meal; then toured the Dundy County Museum at the old Morehouse Hospital in Benkelman.  Many of the group were born in that hospital and/or had memories of stays or visits there when the hospital was in operation.  Following the tour, everyone enjoyed having an old-time frosty at the soda fountain.
Members of the Haigler United Methodist Women group visited the Hester Nursing Home in Benkelman on Friday afternoon.  President of the group, Karen Harford, led the program with puppet shows and singing.  Fellow member, Sally Daniels also helped with the puppet show.  Myrna Mulligan played the piano; and members Marilyn Bannister and Deb Bush assisted with the singing.  Also helping with the program was Myrna's sister, LaNeta Carlock.  The group served icecream and cake to the Hester Home residents to celebrate August birthdays.  The birthday table was also decorated with colorful balloons.
Lois Zuege, granddaughter Rikki, Lois's sister Edith Roundtree and daughter Evelyn Stamm of Benkelman attended a Carlock family reunion that was held in Yuma last Saturday, August 21.
On Tuesday afternoon, Sophia Zuege and Laura Pearl Wall drove out to the Dale Faylor home for a short visit.
Rumor is that Sophia Zuege had her 92nd birthday last week.  Son, Albert, came and took her to his home for the occasion.  We were unable to contact her for details and confirmation before newstime.
