  • CLASS OF 1964
    The Harrison County High School Class of 1964 is getting ready for their annual reunion. This year it will be on Oct. 20 at Biancke’s Restaurant. If you come for dinner, we will be in the back room at 5 p.m. We’ll order from the menu and everybody will pay for their own meal.
    After dinner, at approximately 6:30 p.m., we’ll move to the patio and bar areas to socialize. You may want to attend both the dinner and social hours, but if you wish to attend only one, that’s okay, too. We hope to see you there.

  • The apple orchard has been picked clean and some have gone to our Courtney Farms Fruit CSA subscribers, some are now applesauce, some frozen and loads are now dried and sitting patiently on the shelf until the dead of winter (We are not allowed to eat them until all fresh are eaten!)
    Our attention now turns to some other native fruit treats as the season winds downs.  
    The persimmons have ripened at a faster pace than usual and I suspect that it was the early spring warm up combined with some chilly nights in the last week or two.
