What storms we’ve had! However, we are blessed that one that came through Firth wasn’t nearly as strong as what Beatrice had hit them. At least, no one was injured.


Hopefully, that is the worst of it for this year.


July 2 is the date the Esprit Group will perform at Living Life Reformed Church. This is Lincoln Berean’s high school music team.


Many Norris kids are in this group. They put on an absolutely wonderful show. They use contemporary music and drama to give a Christian message. You won’t be disappointed if you go.


Congratulations to Justin and Sarah (Wieskamp) Birkett, who were married on June 17. Sarah is the daughter of Bill and Diana Wieskamp.


Vacation Bible School for Living Life Reformed Church will be held at Camp Solaris from July 5-7 from 9 a.m. through 4 p.m. Call 402-791-5800 for more information on registering your child.


Mark your calendars for Firth Fun Night on July 8. There will be a pancake feed, 5k run, sand volleyball and horseshoe tournaments.


In the evening, there will be a parade, games, live music, community market and fireworks after dark. For more information, visit Facebook or call the Village Office at 402-791-5544.


Our splash pad is now open until after Labor Day weekend. The hours are 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday. The Sunday hours are 1 p.m. to 8 p.m.


Wish these people a happy birthday this week: John Van DenBossche (24th); Clark Mulder (28th); Peg Hartgerink (29th). Happy anniversary to Randy and Beth Sieck (24th); the Logsdon’s (27th); and Cary and Lori Prange (31st).


Senior Diners meet on the 26th at the Firth Community Center at 10 a.m. Lunch is served at 11:30 a.m. with a planned meal of beef and bean taco salad with cheese, lettuce, tomato, olives, salsa, sour cream, tortilla chips, ice cream and pears. If interested, call Paula Chamberlain at 402-416-7693 by Thursday morning to reserve a spot. “Observation vs. Admission” will be presented by Karen O’Hara, Aging Partners at 12:30 p.m. A nutritional handout on “Oral Health’s Impact on Nutrition” will be given out.


We will soon be seeing many fireworks in the sky. I don’t think they will compete with the lightning display we had last weekend. There is beauty in everything. I saw a photo from south of York where the sky was filled with ground lightning. I have never seen anything like it.


Will Rogers said “Everything is funny as long as it is happening to someone else,” but I have no problem laughing at myself. Funny, odd things happen to all of us, why not enjoy them?
