Wrestling is in full swing at Adrian High School. It’s been said, if you want to be the best, you have to wrestle the best. In a match last week, Darleen Lutmer's grandson, Michael Preuss, notched a huge win for the Dragons by defeating the defending South Dakota state champion. Outstanding job, Michael! Good luck to you and your teammates this season.
The Schaap-Galagan American Legion Auxiliary Post 636 of Lismore brought Christmas cheer to the residents of the Adrian nursing home this past week. Avis Stoffel, Ruth Lorang, Joyce Erdmann, and Patty Johnson were on hand to play Quarter Bingo and provided a nice lunch for a big crowd in the commons area. No one got rich, but they all were happy their winnings!! Auxiliary member, Darleen Lutmer of the Country Cottages joined the fun as well.
What better way to spread holiday cheer than to carol at the homes of friends, neighbors and co-workers. A large number of carolers turned out Friday night to do just that. The music was well received and it was a fun way to get in the Christmas spirit. They all gathered at the Lismore Bar for snacks and appetizers to end the evening.
