Haigler Happenings - October 24, 2011

The 4th annual Haigler Fall Tumbleweed Festival was a grand day!  The weather cooperated with a picture perfect autumn day.  Haigler Elementary students had decorated many pumpkins for the festival. Garage sales had 6 sites and 10 families participating.  Food, music, enterertainment, tumbleweeds, and tours of the completed Country Schoolhouse Museum and future Haigler Cornerstone Museum were enjoyed by all attending.  The Spook Parade down Porter Avenue had costumed participants of all kinds and ages.   Over 45 businesses and individuals from the tri-state area contributed prizes for the festival events.  Through the generous donations of all who attended, $1,000 was raised for the Cornerstone Museum.  Many thanks to everyone who participated.  This year's Maypole Award was presented to Shaw Construction (Jerry & Ben Shaw) of Benkelman.
The five children of Marvin and Harriet Carlock enjoyed being together again for the Haigler Fall Tumbleweed Festival weekend.  The three Carlock sisters--Cheryl Raile of Burwell, NE; Sandy Magley of Bird City, KS; and Linda Miller of Arnett, OK; were guests of their brother Stan Carlock and wife LaNeta at the Haigler White House.  Their brother Marv and wife MaryAnn of Laird, CO brought pizza and birthday cake to celebrate Cheryl's birthday on Friday evening. Everyone pitched in Thursday, Friday, and Saturday to help with the Tumbleweed Festival; and Sunday morning all enjoyed breakfast at the Haigler Country Cafe.
The Haigler United Methodist church is hosting a board game night Sunday evening, October 30 at 5:00 P.M.  Bring your favorite board game and yourself - or just yourself - and join in the fun.  The members of the community are invited.  Finger food will be served.
Dale and Dode Faylor's daughters, Sherrie, from Burlington and Daneen, from LeCompton, KS, came Thursday evening. They helped Dale finish roofing the house on Friday and Saturday. Sherrie went home Saturday evening.  Daneen stayed and went to church with her parents Sunday morning, had dinner with them in Wray, CO; then went to Burlington, CO, to visit her sisters, Yvonne and Sherri.  She returned home to LeCompton on Monday. 
Jeannie Zuege visited Sophia Zuege Monday afternoon.  She has been visiting her mother, Laura Pearl Wall.
Sophia Zuege, Iona Maupin, and Linda Morris visited the Brown home on Sunday.  Lorene Putnam visited Iona Maupin on Monday. 
Garry and Sharon Fisher with Garry's mother, Floy Fisher, joined a church group visiting the nursing home in Yuma on Saturday afternoon.  There was a song service in which residents chose their favorite gospel song for all to sing, an interesting, short inspirational message with a story and a snack of home made cookies enjoyed while personally visiting with the individual residents who attended.  The group devotes a Saturday afternoon each month for this activity.
Several former Haigler community residents who have moved away from the area subscribe to the home town weekly newspapers that carry the Haigler News to keep up on happenings in the area.  Participation of a variety of people who are willing to share their news is much appreciated and makes it more interesting to the readers.  You do not need to have done something great to report an item as news. 
E-mail ffisher@bwtelcom.net; call 308-297-3605, mailing address: Floy Fisher, P O Box 44, Haigler, NE 69030.  The news mailbox is up at 338 Washington Ave., - on the other side of the driveway than before. 
A  big, beautiful, fat raccoon visited Floy's back yard Monday morning, checking out things under the dining room window.  If he had known he could have found a feast of kitty food up a few steps on the deck.  Obviously he has been finding plenty to eat elsewhere.  It must be the culprit that has been digging up kitchen trash that has been buried in the garden area.
