Bridal shower is well attended
Saturday, April 13 was our April noon potluck dinner in the community room. There was a really good crowd. Twenty-two persons participated in the potluck and there was lots of food. Mary McCartney had adorned all the tables with prayer-theme decorations.
Following the potluck, 18 players played Bingo. Lloyd Schwartz called Bingo and there were two blackout game winners—Joy Dirksen and Virginia Burgher.

Here is some postal delivery trivia. More than 150,000,000,000 pieces of mail are delivered each year in the U.S. I wonder how much of that mail is for “File 13,” or in other words, is termed “junk mail.”
Virginia Burgher attended the bridal shower for Sarah Erfman Saturday afternoon, April 20, at Trinity Lutheran Church. Sarah is the soon-to-be bride of Aaron Schneider. The shower was hosted by Sarah’s maternal aunts, Joyce Everhart, Artesian, and Jayne Raabe, Brookings. The decorations were done in a deep fuschia and black, with accents of orange, which are Sarah’s colors for the wedding. Local guests were present, as well as out-of-town guests, several of whom were Aaron’s family. Seated at the head table were Janice Erfman; Sarah; Stephanie Schneider, Sarah’s special friend and maid-of-honor; and Aaron’s mother, Darda Schneider, Britton.
Guests participated in two games at the shower. They were Bridal Shower Bingo, and helpful kitchen gadgets for Sarah’s kitchen. After viewing a tray of 20 kitchen items, everyone wrote down the items they saw. After the games, Sarah opened her many gifts. Jordan Erfman, Sarah’s nephew from Highmore, was the gift carrier. We ended with lunch. Joyce and Jayne served coffee and punch, as well as all kinds of delicious goodies. It was a festive event.
