News from OTTENHEIM

By Dorothea Schlappi

Keep Benny Simpson in your prayers, he is having health problems.

The farm that sold on Ephesus School Road Saturday, June 30 used to be known as the Rita and August Ridder farm. Everyone knew the Ridders and their farm was kept very beautiful. One year their house burned down and they had to rebuild it. Rita and August passed away quite a few years ago. Their son, Charles, is the one who drowned in Buck Creek Lake right after it was built on the Siler farm. A person from out of state bought the farm and hopes to move here to operate it.

The Memorial High School graduating class of 1956 is meeting at the Kentucky Depot Restaurant on Saturday, July 21 at 11 a.m. for lunch and to visit. If any others would like to join us, be there at 11 a.m.

Hope everyone had a safe Fourth of July. There were lots of fireworks going off Saturday night, they could be seen for miles in the Ottenheim area.

Our prayers and thoughts go out to the Leonard Hubble family in his passing last week. Gretta and family, we are thinking of you at this time.

Trevor Pullem was baptized at St. Sylvester Catholic Church on Sunday. He is the son of Carolyn and Travis. A luncheon was held in his honor after the service.

Beginning Sunday, Sept. 2, church time will change at St. Sylvester to 11 a.m. on Sundays instead of 11:30 a.m. Also Wednesday evening service will change from 5 to 6:30 p.m. The majority of the people wanted change so more people could come to both services.

On Sunday, July 15 during the 11:30 a.m. service, there will be a confirmation of faith for three of our young men. Everyone is welcome to attend the service and the get together afterwards.

It matters not how one dies, but how we live.
