Boyceville Bits and Pieces – 7-31-2013

It’s Sunday night again. The week sure goes by fast when you try to think of something to write about.

On Wednesday night the Lions met for their monthly meeting. The planning is in the works for the sportsman banquet. It will be held the Saturday night after Pickle Fest.

As you know, the Pickle Fest is the 3rd weekend in August. The golden pickle is ready to be hidden – $100 is for the one who finds it.

Again I’m going to have the flower show, vegetable show and pickle creation. Also because of the weather, I would like a show of the tallest corn, show about 5 to 8 stalks. Cash prizes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places of each contest.

This year I am clearing out my middle room for the show. Bring them in on Saturday before noon. Hope to have a good show this year.

It was fun to talk to so many classmates. There were two reunions for Menomonie High Classes of 56 and 57 at Jake’s, and the Menomonie High School All-School Reunion was held at the D.A.V. I didn’t make them but ran into classmates while shopping in Menomonie.

The quilt show is sounding like a good show again this year, we sure have some great quilters in the guild. Menomonie Fair seemed to run like always. I appreciated that the staff was so helpful and gave me a ride to my car.

Keep me informed of your coming and goings. I know a lot of you are just as busy as we are.

God Bless,


Christmas in July for the Roemhild Family
submitted by Alton and Jean Roemhild

On Sunday, July 28, 2013 the family of Alton and Jean Roemhild celebrated Christmas in July at the home of Nick and Angie Hellmann (granddaughter of Alton and Jean Roemhild). The cool temperatures brought warm laughter and fond memories! All six children (Kevin (Linda) of Wildomar, CA; Randy (Janice) of Prairie Farm, WI; Jeff (Mary) of Boyceville, WI; Dac (Tim Hafele)  of Prairie Farm, WI; Scott (Renee) of Fall Creek, WI; and Kris (Mike Broten) of Prairie Farm, WI) and their extended families attended to make a grand total of 42 special individuals; only twenty grandchildren/great-grandchildren were unable to join the fun. With a potluck meal, many stories, a variety of outdoor games, the breezy day was enjoyable. The competition between siblings, grandchildren and great-grandchildren did heat up when each family brought a Minute to Win It contest. The greatest prize was the amusing pictures captured of the Facial Cookie Roll, Cup Exchange, Dice Towers while being handcupped, Kleenex Pull, M&M Straw Suction Podiums and Under-the-Chin Apple Relays. Overall, the sights of hilarious entertainment and roars of laughter created a delightful day/memory amongst the Roemhild family.
