Biker Appreciation Day set for Dec. 13

The Rutledge Community Thanksgiving Service was held on Wednesday night, Nov. 19, at Rutledge Town Hall. Pastor Mack Sporman of the First Baptist Church of Rutledge had a very good devotional, challenging us all to be more thankful for the blessings we have, and Pastor Bob Brown of Rutledge Methodist Church gave the blessing on the food.

Everyone brought some of their favorite dishes, and the spread was beautiful! Three tables full of chicken strips, casseroles of all kinds, peas, butterbeans, baked beans, salads, deviled eggs, pear salad, carrot salad, and every other good thing to eat that you can imagine – and that was not including the dessert table. Cakes, pies, apple dumplings, brownies, fudge and cookies – it was hard to decide what to eat!

Everyone present enjoyed visiting with each other, and making new friends.

Betty Pippin and Shirley Gallagher of Rutledge will be the hosts for South Luverne Baptist Church’s WMU meeting in December. There will be special guest speakers, and a musical recital; refreshments will also be served. The meeting will be held on Tuesday, December 9, at 2 p.m. in the fellowship hall of the church. If you’d like to attend, please give Shirley Gallagher a call at 335-4525.
