Donnelly News April 20, 2013

Welcome to another edition of the Donnelly news.

Just when we thought it was safe to put the snow removal equipment away, it was pressed into service again on April 11.  We got several inches of snow accompanied by blowing and drifting bad enough to close most schools in the area for the day.  Sunday afternoon brought more of the same and as I am writing this, schools were once again closed because of the weather.

In St. John’s/ Kongsvinger news:   There are two upcoming bridal showers in the parish.   One is for Mindy Janachovsky (Mark and Karen) and another is for Dani Kloos (Phil and Kris).  I will have more information later with dates, times and places. If you would like to be on the shower committee for Mindy, contact Jan Greiner or Peggy Wilke; for Dani’s, please contact Gail Kloos.
