Do you want to find out what it’s like to balance raising eight kids while spreading the word of God and working as a physician?

Then come on out to Christ Community Church in Genoa on Sept. 25-27.

This coming weekend, Jonathan and Amy Claussen, who operate the Family Restoration Project, an organization dedicated to helping provide families with guidance while working to strengthen their foundation, will be holding ministry and teaching seminars in an effort to educate families on how they can better incorporate God into their lives.

There are three ministry and teaching sessions — Friday at 7 p.m.; Saturday at 10 a.m. and Sunday at 10 a.m. A cookout and bonfire will be held on Saturday at 6 p.m.

The Claussens, who live in Browerville, Minnesota which is located just over two hours northwest of Minneapolis, raise eight kids, all of whom are homeschooled, and are the hosts and leaders of The Glory Barn, a revival center whose primary focus is honoring the presence of God and providing freedom in worship.

September is here and on Sept. 23, we will welcome autumn. The days are growing shorter now and some of our migratory birds will soon begin to prepare for their personal journeys to their winter homes.

The lull now, between the heat of summer and the colder days to come, is a great time to enjoy your gardens and flower beds as the milder weather of September brings out the best in many flowers and foliage plants. Early frosts can occur this month, but they are normally mild in September and do not damage most perennials and annuals which will keep right on blooming until the later hard frosts.

The squirrels in my backyard seem to be much more frenetic now in their daily routines of rushing from tree to tree and flowing speedily about the yard. Their greatest activity seems to center around the nut trees and, of course, the bird feeders. Hopefully they are storing food for the winter to come but we suspect that they are eating a lot of the nuts and bird feed now to support all their “September rushing around!”

Parkinson’s disease is a chronic, degenerative, neurological disorder with no known cure.

It’s an autumn tradition – celebrate the arrival of autumn at the 2015 Luckey Fall Festival, set for Sept. 25, 26 and 27 at Basic Park, located between Krotzer Avenue (SR 582) and Gilbert Road.

Throughout the weekend, festival-goers can enjoy old-fashioned fall fun, including horseshoe-pitching, displays of antique gas engines and cars, antique tractor pulls and displays, a craft and flea market, antiuqbingo, kiddie tractor pulls and much more. Breakfast will be available at 7 a.m. Saturday and Sunday, and a chicken barbecue will be held Sunday beginning at 11:30 a.m. A community worship service will precede the barbecue at 10 a.m.

On Saturday night, enjoy music by Baltimore North.

The Rutherford B. Hayes Presidential Center will have its 25th and final Civil War re-enactment and encampment Oct. 3-4 at Spiegel Grove.

According to Kristina Smith communications/marketing manager at the Hayes Center, declining numbers of re-enactors and dwindling attendance led to the decision to make this year’s encampment the final one. Hayes staff and volunteers are working on ideas for a new and perhaps smaller-scale event to honor President Hayes’ Civil war service, which was “very important to him.”

On both days of this year’s event, Civil War re-enactors will camp on the grounds and take part in three re-enactments of the Battle of Opequon Creek, where Rutherford B. Hayes led the charge that helped win the battle. Hayes served in the Civil War before he was president.
