Haigler Happenings - June 20, 2011

On Saturday, June 18, a Stute reunion of 30+ people gathered in Haigler.  They were all descendants of Fred and Grace (Sampson) Stute who farmed in the Haigler community many years ago.  Their daughters, Elaine, Carol, Judy, Cathy, and the youngest sister and their families returned to their roots in Haigler.  They visited their former farm north and east of Haigler, enjoyed lunch at the Haigler Country Cafe, and walked the streets of Haigler.  That afternoon, Stan and LaNeta Carlock hosted their visit to the Country Schoolhouse Museum 67 South and they also saw the beginnings of what will be the Haigler Cornerstone Museum.  The busload of Stutes returned to Atwood, KS that evening where they were lodging.  Everyone enjoyed their visit to Haigler.

Early Saturday morning, the 18th, Dale and Dode Faylor drove to the home of their daughters, Yvonne Clemans and Sherri Morabito in Burlington.  Dwight Faylor arrived at the Clemans later that morning.  Dale and Dwight helped Royce and Yvonne Clemans with a foundation for a new deck at the back of the Clemans home.  Due to rain and a rented machine that refused to run they were not able to get much done and Dwight returned home Saturday evening.  Sunday, Father’s Day, Dale was treated to a dinner with those attending being the Royce Clemans family and Sherri Morabito, Lance Clemans’ wife and 3 sons, and a family friend, Carolyn Hudon.  Lance Clemans was away on a job and wasn’t able to attend.  Dale and Dode returned home on Monday.

Family members who visited Laura Pearl Wall last week included Bob and MerryLu Simmons, Duane and LuAnn Wall of Cheyenne, Gracie and Sydney Wall of Clemmons, North Carolina, Heather, Logan and Noel Klein of Yuma, and Dwight Wall of Lewellen.

Laura Pearl Wall accompanied Bob, MerryLu, Quentin and Taya Simmons to Lewellen to help Dwight Wall celebrate his birthday on Tuesday of Last week.

Garry and Sharon Fisher came down from Wray with Garry’s riding mower.  Garry mowed all of his mother’s 4 lots while Sharon and Floy drove to St. Francis to do a little shopping.

The flooding that is causing big problems in some areas of Kansas and Nebraska as well as other places makes us thankful that we are ‘high and dry.’  However, according to history it can and has happened here.  Some of the older residents can remember stories of their own.  Floy Crabtree-Fisher can remember Cherry Creek west of St. Francis coming up within a few feet of the front door in the 1930’s.  The only way to get to town for groceries was to walk across the Republican River on a floating footbridge.  Thankfully we could drive to the river’s edge by taking a back way trail. 

Due to a problem with the main computer, the news this week is written on another computer, which proves to be at a disadvantage.
