“Jam Bams” Corn Maze


‑‑‑‑‑ On a Sunday 14 Cub Scouts and their parents from Pack #3344 visited Jam Bams Corn Maze at Hilgers Market area. This year was better than ever.

‑‑‑‑‑ No Scouts or parents disappeared entirely, although it did take between 45 minutes and 1 1/2 hours to navigate the Maze depending upon what physical shape you happen to be in.

‑‑‑‑‑‑ Another highlight from the Corn Maze was an air compressor powered cannon that fired full ears of corn at targets placed throughout the lake target area. We hope that the Scouts are not planning to build one of those cannons themselves.

The last Saturday of October there will be a hayride at the Southwest Conservation Club. This hayride is sponsored by Troop #38 from Calvary United Methodist Church and is open to ALL Scout age boys. Both Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts. Be at the Southwest Conservation Club at 6:30 for a hayride and candy and surprises. 

‑‑‑‑ The annual St. Therese Fall Festival was held Saturday, September 11, 2004. What originally started as a Parish event has evolved over the years into a great affair for the entire community. And there was something going on for everyone.

‑‑‑‑ A fish pond, face painting, a putting green, basketball free throws, moonwalk, and a cake walk kept the crowd busy. A silent auction, bingo, and bratwurst and chicken on the grill kept the older crowd busy. The Saturday evening beer tent was as large a hit as it has ever been, and it was quite crowded.

‑‑‑‑ The St. Therese Parish invited the local Boy Scouts to get the event started with a color guard and a patriotic flag raising. Several local units combined to raise our flag in a manner that dictates that September 11, 2001, will never be forgotten.

‑‑‑‑‑ The Scouts also kept the access for a fire lane open and likewise they helped keep the handicapped areas open for those that actually do require them. The Bake Sale goodies had to be carried in and the many trash bags filled during the day had to be disposed of. These Scouts kept busy. We thank them for their selfless community service.
