Today's Features

  • Wanda Hodson had always liked to sew, making curtains and sewing for her children. A Christmas gift from her husband two years ago led her into creating items of beauty that not only brought enjoyment to her family and friends, but also brought requests for her to make such things as gifts for friends and family of her friends and family.

  • Many know of the many talents of Carol Evaul, and also of her love of Mulberry Grove. An expression of that fondness for the town can now actually be seen … on the wall of Andrew Miller’s community market.

  • It has been documented that on October 25, 1901, a group of ladies in Ramsey that was seeking to “advance the knowledge of literature and promote the art of conversation” started a club that has endured as one of the longest standing women’s groups in Illinois.

  • Fayette County Home & Community Education held a free Alzheimer’s awareness program for the public on Saturday at Northside Christian Church in Vandalia.

  • What began a few years ago as a thoughtful wish to help some citizens of Brownstown do some holiday shopping without having to get out in cold weather and drive to other towns has become sort of a holiday tradition, like Old Tyme Christmas in Vandalia, but on a smaller scale, and especially with seniors’ safety and convenience in Brownstown in mind.

  • The name “Alzheimer’s,” and meaning of it, was practically unheard of by most people in the late 1950s. There was a mention, but very little written about it in most medical books.

  • St. James chili supper, quilt auction

    St. James Lutheran Church at 727 W. Gallatin St. in Vandalia will hold its annual chili supper and a vintage quilt auction from 4-7 p.m. this Thursday, prior to the Lions Club Halloween Parade.
    The menu includes chili, hot dog or peanut butter sandwich, dessert and drink. The cost is $6 per person.

    Bethel hosting Trunk or Treat

  • Last week’s Fayette Faces focused on the Long Term Care gazebo, which is maintained by Sid File through the organization Families That Care of LTC, which keeps the gazebo in bloom and beauty with donations.

  • It has been said, “A thing of beauty is a joy forever.” In this case, the Fayette County Hospital Long Term Care Gazebo is a continuous source of beauty for every season, thanks to the group Familes That Care at Long Term Care, which was formed years ago, and continued to others who picked it up and kept it going, and to Sid File, who maintains the plants, flowers and seasonal décor with funding provided by the Families That Care group.

  • Weekend Visitors
    Mitch, Gretchen, Owen, Aaron and Henry Harpster of Jackson, Mo., spent Friday to Sunday with Dane and Belinda Harpster of St. Peter.
    On Saturday, Belinda, Gretchen, the boys, and Mahala and Harper Jacquin went to Greenup to Grissom Lost Creek Orchard. They enjoyed the petting zoo, had lunch at Dairy Queen and returned home.
    Upon returning home, Owen and Aaron went to the field to ride in the combine with Papa Dane, and ride in the grain truck with their dad.
    That evening, the Harpsters and Jacquins enjoyed dinner at Schaefer’s.
