Granton (7 November 1963)


A UNICEF program, suggested by four members of a Sunday school class of the Granton Methodist Church and adopted by the other classes, resulted in a collection of $17.75 the evening of October 30.


This was the first attempt of such a program in Granton and is of interest to note that the amount collected will furnish 890 children with one cup of milk for 10 days, or will save 71 children from blindness.


The children, taking part in the house-to-house calls, were given a treat at the church.


Verla Hales, who recently purchased the Hans Heimke home, has completed moving from her former home in the Town of York.  Miss Ruby Anthony has moved into an upstairs apartment.


Mabel Williams arrives Sunday from Pecatonica, Ill., where she has taught for many years, and is now settled in the former Gilbertson apartment. Miss Williams is a native of Granton.


Mrs. Elsie Nowack has returned after spending a week with her daughter, Mrs. Gilbert Hurtis, in Marathon.


Recent guests at the Bernard Pietenpol home were Mr. and Mrs. David Pietenpol and three sons, of Marshfield.


Miss Inez Holmes, who suffered a light stroke recently at her home, is receiving care in Memorial Hospital in Neillsville.  She is visited frequently by her sister, Miss Gertrude Holmes, who reports her sister is showing improvement.


Mrs. William Kmiec has returned to Palatine, Ill., after spending several days with her parents, the Rev. and Mrs. F. C. Benecke.


Mr. and Mrs. Walter Hannemann of Mitchell, S. D., visited recently at the Lucien Moh home.  Other guests during the week were the Rev. and Mrs. F. C. Benecke of Granton and the Rev. and Mrs. E. Hartenberger of Lannon.


Rhonda Lee-Ann, five weeks old, arrived Friday to make her home with Mr. and Mrs. Donald Bartz.


Rhonda Lee Trimberger of Neillsville spent Monday afternoon with her grandmother, Mrs. Walter Trimberger.  Mr. and Mrs. Irvin Toburen of Greenwood also called there that afternoon.


Mr. and Mrs. Ed Schlinsog and Mr. and Mrs. Walter Trimberger were Sunday visitors at the Leland Gerber home in Marshfield.
