Men in Mission

The Men in Mission group cancelled their meetings because of the Covid. Now since things have almost returned to ‘normal’ they have resumed meeting. The first meeting was held at St. Paul’s, Uehling with nearly 12 in attendance. Chuck Egbers opened the meeting with a devotion. The guest speaker was Ron Dierking who is the chairman of the Advisory Board for the Logan East Rural Water System. He explained how this water system began, the large area served by this system and the challenges still encountered daily. The average person takes for granted that there will be water when they turn on the faucet, bathe and wash clothes and dishes. It takes much checking (of the system) and double checking to keep this happening. It is incredible the amount of water that is lost in the system from just a small drip of a faucet. There is still a leak in the Uehling system that has so far not been found which contributes to twice as much water loss that is normal for this area. The wells supplying this system are located north and west of Oakland with water towers near Oakland and west of Uehling. Their blue color identifies them as the towers of Logan East Rural Water System. This group will continue to meet monthly on the third Saturday of the month at 8:00 a.m. starting in August (skipping July because of the Scribner 150 year celebration).The next meeting will be August 21st at St. Paul’s, rural Hooper. If you have never attended one of these meetings, you don’t know what you’re missing. It’s never too late to start this habit. It was said that the ladies are welcome also to attend these meetings.
