Wednesday evening Merlin and Connie Hartman enjoyed supper in Lincoln with Lisa Hartman of Bellevue and Jalicia Longoria of Lincoln. After eating they headed to Devaney to see the Husker women and the women of Michigan play volleyball. It was an exciting game and the Huskers won in three sets.


The Douglas community was saddened to hear of the passing of Catherine (Thies) Hier. She grew up south of Douglas the daughter of Ray and Berdine Thies. She was a graduate of Douglas Community School and attended St. Martin’s Catholic Church in Douglas. Cathy and her husband came to make their home in Princeton. She is survived by her husband Mark, daughters Katrina and Maria, two grandchildren and five brothers.


It is Charge Conference time at the Doulas United Methodist Church.  Pastor Karen Lamb took an opportunity during the social time following worship to hand out reports that must be completed and returned.


The CROP Walk took place in Douglas. Kathy Adkins was chairwoman. After a walking a route laid out in town the walkers returned to the Douglas United Methodist Church to relax and enjoy cookies. Donations to help feed the hungry are always welcome.


Merlin and Connie Hartman had breakfast with the community on Saturday morning at the Fire and Rescue’s Annual Pancake Feed. There was much food and visiting. Hopefully people learned about the volunteer service and the need for more volunteers. There are young people who can give of their help and there are those of us who are older and may need the help one day.
