    Veteran's Day service at Northside

  • By Dr. Melanie Schaafsma
     On this wet and rainy Monday, Evergreen Outreach was in full swing – bringing sunshine to everyone!
    Pam Childers played the piano, delighting us all with old-time hymns and gospel songs, followed by the old standbys: "Bill Bailey," "Bye Bye Blackbird," "Clementine"  and "Bicycle Built For Two."

  • What a great time of year this is. The heat of summer has given way to the coolness of fall. The leaves on the trees are changing from various shades of green to bright yellow, gold and red.

  • Devious & Daring Red Fox gets Breakfast-to-Go
    It was a sad day here on the Homestead Saturday when tragedy struck in broad daylight. It was the usual morning routine – let Josie, the 12 year-old-puppy, out the back patio door, walk on a few feet and let the girls, Anita and Blackie (hens), out and take Josie back in.
    As I let the girls out, I watched them run to their place where Bill puts their corn, just a few feet from where I was and near the deck.
