Another One From Flaherty: The Dormant News


Fri, Oct 3rd, 2003
Posted in Columnists

We have in Flabbergast County a very fine County newspaper in The Dormant News whos slogan is all the news thats fit to print and even some that aint. I thoroughly enjoy reading it and what I find especially interesting are the social items that are contributed by local correspondents. For instance:

Mrs. Gaylord Farquhar left Sunday for a month long visit with her mother in Tularaemia, Idaho.

The Family Farmers held their annual outing at Phoolers Falls. Games and a chicken fry were enjoyed by everyone.

The Dormant beer and Pretzel Club met Sunday evening at the home of Gaylord Farquhar. After a brief business meeting in which Gaylord was elected Entertainment Chairman, the members enjoyed singing and dancing until forced to adjourn early Monday morning.

The Monday Morning Coffee Callers met at the home of Mrs. Bertha Bagwell. The Birthday Girls Club met Monday noon at the Dormant Community Center. Guests of honor were Beulah Brightbrook and Zelda Zimmermann.

Mrs. Bertha Bagwell entertained her mother at a noon luncheon at the Primrose Cafe in Boggsberg. Little Sarah Snaffleberg spent Tuesday afternoon at the home of her grandparents, Selmer and Sylvia Snaffleberg.

The first annual Dormant Pool Tournament was held last Tuesday evening in the basement of the Gaylord Farquhar residence. Tournament play was suspended indefinitely after fire broke out in the living room. The dormant Volunteer Fire Department responded after being summoned by a neighbor who happened to be looking in the window at the time. Damage was confined to the living room drapes and a sofa.

The Dormant Garden Club met Wednesday afternoon at the Community Center. A floral tribute was paid to the senior members present. Don and Dora Davis were Wednesday evening supper guests at the home of her parents, Wilbert and Winnefred Wrumplemeyer.

Seventeen members of The Fat Chance Poker Club were overnight guests at the Gaylord Farquhar home last Wednesday and Thursday.

The films of Lash La Rue were featured at the Dormant Film Society, Thursday at the Community Center. Next months showing will feature Ken Maynard, Hoot Gibson and Jay Silverheels in The Trail Blazers.

Dude and Donna Dawson left Friday morning for a weekend of camping at Phoolers Falls. The .....

Another big day, Thanks for coming to our chicken dinner last Sunday, at Big Spring. I guess we all know that any big dinner at church means a lot of hard work. Some are up at 4:30 a.m. frying chicken and finding enough ovens around the country to .....

Grabbing an old notebook to find a clean sheet of paper, I spotted a list dated "summer, 2003." Expert list-maker that I am, I had drawn a vertical line on the left-hand side of the sheet with thick pencil. To the left of that line were tentative com .....
