Loring News for September 13, 2017


September 13, 2017

I'm so sorry that I missed last week! It throws me off when there is a holiday! Hope you all had a nice Labor Day!

Friday September 1, a long time friend was laid to rest at the Malta Cemetery. Bette Dyrdahl was brought home by her family to join her husband Delmar Dyrdahl. It was nice to see the Dyrdahl boys again even though the situation was not a happy occasion. Gary and Vicki Dyrdahl of Oregon and two daughters and a grandson, Larry And Martha Dyrdahl of Great falls, Steve Dyrdahl of California, Dan Dyrdahl and friend of Nevada, and Mike and Vonda Dyrdahl, Daisy, Shaelynn, Jordan, Evie, and many more relatives were gathered to greet the friends left behind and enjoy the repast provided by the ladies of the Catholic Church. Dorothy Granlund and Fern drove over from Cascade. Donna Dyrdahl of Chouteau, cousins Sharon and Dusty Hill of Scobey, and Leroy Dyrdahl of Malta caught up with family happenings.

Many of the Dyrdahls visited the Great Plains Dinosaur Museum before heading out.

This week we saw real progress on the Loring Lutheran Church! The floor upstairs is done, the altar is repainted, the bathroom fixtures are in but not installed, the lights work. We saved the old light fixtures and globes and they look awesome in the new area! The guys spent many hours de-nailing the steeple and then put the tin siding on. It is quite attractive! Our contractor, Scott, has just a few more things to finish up! Then we'll be singing high praises to the Lord!

I was involved in the historic walk at the Phillips County Museum this weekend. I portrayed Jeannette Bradley, from up near the Canadian Border. Her daughter, Arlyne Hattleberg and husband, Glenn Hattleberg of the Four Corners area near Bozeman brought their son, Bradley and daughter, Wanda and her husband Shawn for the event. It was so fun visiting with them all! They stopped up at the Bradley Place for a few hours on Sunday and then stopped by the Stordahl's.

Carol Lumsden attended the historic walk with her dad, John Flansaas. Carmen and Girls were out on Saturday to check on the church work.

The Loring Lutheran Church will meet at 9:30 with a quarterly meeting to follow on Sunday, Sept 17.

Some of the birds I have seen in the yard include the yellow shafted flicker. I think it stopped by to fuel up for the distant trip south. Lots of goldfinches are feasting on my sunflowers right outside the window! Also plenty of yellow rumpled warblers snapping up insects!

Until next time...
