A blog about Lindsborg

Welcome to Lindsborg Town Talk, your source for news about upcoming events and activities in Lindsborg.

Once again it’s time for Bethany Home’s annual Garage Sale and Craft Show! The event began at 8am this morning, and runs through 3pm. At the same time, there is a Bake Sale that lasts until the goodies are all gone. From 11 til 1 there’s a chili feed. That’s today, the Garage and Bake Sale, plus chili feed, at the Bethany Home in Lindsborg.

And also this morning, from now through 10:30, you can both grab a great breakfast and contribute to an important cause. Come on down to the Lindsborg Covenant Church for a basket auction and pancake feed to benefit Calvin Carlson.

Next week, Smoky Valley High will present Rodgers and Hammerstein’s wonderful musical, Oklahoma! Performances are scheduled for November 13th, 14th and 15th at the high school auditorium; admission is 5$ for adults and 2$ for students.

You’ll want to make a point of visiting the Linsborg State Bank in the near future where rare cement sculptures by Oscar Gunnarson are on public display. A special thanks to his daughters, Eunice and Margaret for making these delightful sculptures available for viewing. Also, thanks to Eunice for teaching me to type, lo those many years ago.

The American Red Cross is holding a blood drive a week from Monday, on November 17th at the Messiah Lutheran Church in Lindsborg from 12:30 until 6:30.

The Red Barn Studio is hosting McPherson artist Julie Baldwin as their artist-in-residence November 10th through 15th. Julie is a painter and will focus on the human form during her time at the Red Barn.

And here’s something to look forward to: the Lindsborg City Council approved plans to construct a skate park near Bethany College. Few details are known at this time, but it’s anticipated the park will open in 2009.

till next time, this is Mike Rodriquez with Lindsborg Town Talk.
