Trinity Lutheran Mens’ Club semi-annual paper drive is this Saturday, March 19. Proceeds from the drive are utilized to support a student at Concordia Seminary in St. Louis. All paper, magazines, related materials are taken to the Recycling Center in Mt. Vernon. It is then grinded and recycled for insulation material. Marvin Haake, and his wife Lorraine, lead by example: since moving into the Village on August 1, they have only required waste pick-up twice – – all other refuse has been recycled!
In conjunction with the Paper Drive, the 4-H will be collecting aluminum cans at the Village Hall. The two groups have historically set their recycling dates in tandem for the ease of donors.
The Sixth Sunday of Lent will be celebrated at Zion Evangelical United Church of Christ with the story of Jesus’s journey into Jerusalem. He was asked the question are you the King, and answered, “you have said so.” The scriptures for the day will be Isaiah 50: 4- 9; Psalm 31: 9-16 and Luke 23: 1-49. He was offered wine vinegar and mocked. He was traded for a common criminal. He was hung on a cross. Come join us for worship at 10 a.m. to hear this story of Jesus and the palms. Children are welcome with special worship bags available to help them understand the story as well.
The Church Council will meet following worship on March 20. Good Friday Services will take place at Freiden’s UCC in Irvington. Easter Sunrise Service will be at 6:30 a.m. on March 27 followed by breakfast at Zion UCC and then regular worship at 10:00 o’clock.
Honoring the memory of Don Storck, a former member of the Hoyleton Lions, four Lions worked at the Centralia Recycling Center. Bob Thorson, John Bassen, Butch Spenner, and Marvin Haake generously gave of their time working at one of Don’s dedicated projects.
