The entries for Bräts and Brew Fest are coming in. Last date to enter or donate auction items is Oct. 21. That gives us a week to get organized. We should have a nice variety of foods for you to taste. If you want to vote and help pick the winners, you may do so. If you do not want the job of deciding which is best, you may just enjoy your meal and not mark your ballot. We want everyone to enjoy their time spent in Germany (just for one night).

The other day I came over the hill into Greencreek and, lo and behold, I saw what looked like an Amish four-wheeled wagon slowly crossing the road. My first thought was, “I didn’t know we had Amish in Greencreek.” It turned out to be Mr. Ed pulling two lawn carts filled with lawn clippings over to the dumpster.
