Now that Halloween is over, your calendar just got a whole lot fuller! This coming weekend starts off November with a bang – in some cases literally, as pheasant and quail season begins Saturday, November 11.
Start off the weekend right by attending USD 210’s District-wide Veterans Day assembly at the HHS West Gym. All Veterans in the area are asked to attend. Simply sign in at the High School office between 8:30 and 8:50 a.m. and you will be honored at the assembly. The entire community is invited to come recognize those who sacrificed so much. There will be moving songs, prayers and other presentations beginning at 9:00 a.m. Immediately following the assembly will be a brunch for all Veterans.
That evening, Pheasant Heaven Charities will be hosting their gigantic annual Calf Fry, Beef Feed and Pig Roast at Southwest Fresh Potato. Serving will begin at 5:00 p.m. with a special Veterans program at 6:30 p.m. and the famous auction will begin at 7:00 p.m. Please come and share your evening with this great organization! More details can be found on their ad on page 3 of this week’s Hermes. Hope to see you there!
Saturday, be sure to get up early to partake of the Hugoton Lions Club’s annual Hunters’ Breakfast at the 4-H Building at the Stevens County Fairgrounds from 5:00 until 8:00 a.m. both Saturday and Sunday. There will be all-you-can-eat scrambled eggs, pancakes, bacon and sausage buffet-style! You can also get your thermos filled before heading out into the fields for pheasant and quail season’s opening day.
For lunch, you can head into town and straight over to the First Christian Church at 600 S. Van Buren for some delicious chili and homemade cinnamon rolls during the fundraising meal for CIY.
If you like being entertained, look no further than Hugoton High School’s production of “Alice in Wonderland” Saturday night at 7:00 p.m. in the HHS Auditorium. If you can’t make that show, they’ll also present a matinee Sunday at 3:00 p.m.
Sunday, November 12, River of Life Church at 424 S. Jackson will host missionaries Reverend Howard and Barbara Gard during worship services at 10:30 a.m.
