Lo­cal farm­ers gave their skills, time and ma­chin­ery last week in sup­port of the Mem­ory Lane Park project un­der­way in Stan­dard. Ear­lier, the Stan­dard Com­mu­nity Fa­cil­ity En­hance­ment So­ci­ety ap­pointed Jackie Jensen to work with vol­un­teers and busi­nesses to plant a quar­ter sec­tion of wheat as a fundraiser for the park, and when it was ready for swathing, 7 farm­ers re­sponded to the call on a warm sunny day and brought their swathers with them. To­gether, they com­pleted the job in a few hours and at the same time gave an enor­mous boost to the com­mu­nity project. We are look­ing for­ward to see­ing a row of com­bines pick­ing up the wheat within a week or so. If any area farm­ers with com­bines, trucks, and grain wag­ons can do­nate the use of their ma­chin­ery and their time to help out, please con­tact Alan Larsen at 901-6411. That event will be cel­e­brated with a com­mu­nity har­vest get-to­gether on the site of the park grounds later this month—weather per­mit­ting, of course.

Nazareth Lutheran Church is host­ing its sec­ond an­nual Bless­ing of the Beasts wor­ship ser­vice on Oc­to­ber 2 at 10:30 am. St. Fran­cis of Assisi was a great lover of an­i­mals and his feast day is Oc­to­ber 4 every year. All pets are in­vited, great or small, to bring their own­ers to wor­ship that day and re­ceive a spe­cial bless­ing. All pets are to be con­tained in a crate or on a leash. Please don’t bring spi­ders if you wish to see Pas­tor Dyanna again.

The Stan­dard Lions wish to thank the com­mu­nity mem­bers who helped out with the Casino on the long week­end. Your help was greatly ap­pre­ci­ated!
