The first Sunday in December the Henning “Clan” gathered at the CCD Building in Adrian to celebrate Christmas and the family get-to-gather! Sources tell this writer that perhaps over 100 were present! Isn’t it great that the last Clare and Charles Henning taught their offspring to stick together and enjoy each generation? I, for one, am delighted to hear about these large family reunions! Be sure to call me about your Christmas parties! 483-2718.
Good article in the Argus Sports about sophomore, Casey Schilling and his great playing as Augustana beat Corcordia - St. Paul 79-70 at the Elmen Center in Sioux Falls. Casey, from Ellsworth had 22 points, 18 rebounds, 5 steals, four assists, 2 blocks and 7 turn overs! What a great player for Augustana. I know the Ellsworth community is very proud of the Schillings!

Went to the Dragon boys basketball game last Friday, December 13th. Adrian boys never gave up and lost by a big lop-sided score! They played hard, but Southwest Christian had seven seniors and lots of “inches”. Thanks for all the help I received at the game and getting to my car!
Speaking of basketball - Brian Korthals, photographer for the Daily Globe took a great action shot of Brady Lonneman of Adrian and Leighton Simpson of SW Christian in Friday’s basketball game in Adrian! He is a great photographer!
Santa and Mrs. Santa were a very busy couple on Saturday, December 14th at the Elementary Commons in Adrian. The line of children was long, as they waited for pictures with Santa, taken by the Review and parents! It was such a pleasure to sit and watch the children, Mr. & Mrs. Santa and parents as they gave their little ones over for a picture. The 4-H kids served a delicious lunch during this time. The 35 vendors in the gym seemed pleased with the crowds. One young mother from Luverne was so pleased with what Adrian offered! Her four little ones had their pictures taken, also received a cookie and juice plus each had a gift from Santa. They also bought lunch and the young mother bought three plates of cookies! A delightful day put on by Adrian’s Town & Country Association. Good Job!
The Catholic Daughters of Adrian put on their annual Christmas party for the clients at Nobles County Developmental Achievement Center on Thursday, December 12th. The new “turn around” got the best of a couple of our drivers but it turned out to be a great time for the clients. They really loved having root beer floats in December and a gift of “munchies” for everyone. Those giving of their time to make the clients feel special were: Our District Deputy Joan Joens from Wilmont and our second Vice Regent Sue Buffington from Luverne. Others were: Rosie Heitkamp, Rita Domagala, Vida Konz, Gen Kiefer, Kay Cox, Carol Rupp and Lenore and Lynette Domeyer who now live in Worthington, but are members of Adrian’s D.A.C. It was a fun few hours and the Catholic Daughters each received a lovely homemade scarf.
Speaking of Catholic Daughters, the Court will have a Christmas pot luck supper on Thursday, December 19th starting at 6:30 p.m. Everyone can bring their husband or a guest to enjoy the “always excellent” pot luck! There will also be a “white elephant” exchange. Should be lots of fun.
Little two year old Micah Bullerman is now home and getting therapy after an accident on a four wheeler. Grandma Deb Bullerman said the family is so grateful for all the prayers offered up for Micah and his family. It was a very frightening time for all, but God was with them every step of the way!
