Volunteers pack soup at Valley Christian school


March 28, 2019

The Home Ministries crew Friday went to Spokane Valley to Valley Christian School to make 3300 bags of soup. They were assisted by the students from grades five through eight. Making the trip were Tom and Doreen Riedner, Bob and Norma Schultz, Chuck and Sharon Lyman, Lona Criswell, Brian and Debbie Largent, Sally Morris, Diane Monson, Audrey Largent, and Grant and Angie Collins (Spokane). The soups are destined for the less fortunate Spokane area residents.

Word has been received by the Jones family of the death of Helen (Regis) Jones Crock, Sunnyvale, Calif. She was the daughter of the late Roy and Pearl Jones of Dusty. She was 101.

Dick and Helen Appel’s daughter Deb Stavig and her husband Bob, their daughter Jessica Wanke and her son Landon from Brush Prairie, spent the weekend in Dusty visiting local relatives. Coming for supper on Saturday were Travis and Lisa Frei, Miriam, Rachel, Emma and Colette, Palouse; Kate Wollstein, Moscow; and Eric and Shannon Appel, Kyle, and Sarah, Colfax. The Neil Appel family, Liz, Neil, Josh, Noemi, Issac, John Paul, Grace and Michael, Dusty; and the Kunkel family, Rob, Caroline, Kade, Elly and Luciene, Pullman, were guests for Sunday supper.

Karen Broeckel recently attended a St. Patrick’s Day family session at the Spokane home of Andrew and Emily Nolan and children Lauren, Grady, Holden and Murphy, to celebrate Murphy’s third birthday. Other locals who were party participants were grandparents Greg and Gwen Nolan and great-grandmother Jeanette Nolan of Colfax.

Last weekend, Broeckel and the two Nolan women, Jeanette and Gwen, went back to Spokane for a baby shower for one-month-old Maxwell Richard Halbig and his mother Jamie Halbig at the home of the young boy’s grandmother, Patty Wieber. More than 20 women and children were at the shower.
