Rain postponed the original date of the Murdock Scarecrow Event but now everything is in its place ready for others to enjoy down the main street.

Talented Jackie Barnes painted the wonderful scarecrow faces and Linda Glantz “dressed them” and put them in place.

Generous Lucas Stock donated cornstalks and pumpkins again the year. Kristi McHugh set the small scarecrows in the flower planters downtown as well as placing some of the pumpkins.

Dan Highfield decorated the north end of town with scarecrows and his big jack-o-lanterns. Watch for his place on Halloween night as I hear that there will be some special decorations.

 Church Bell History and Repair

It is easy to take for granted the sound of the church bell at the beginning of service. It has always been there. Someone is always at the ready to pull on the rope and receive a glorious sound in return.

IMG 9945 101

However, lately pulling on the rope has not been easy, nor as effective. Something was wrong. Church bell experts were brought in to inspect and advise. 

This is the first time many, if not most of us have even seen what the bell actually looks like up close. So here are some very interesting photos and diagrams of how a bell actually works and the history.

TrinityChurchBell

The Trinity Lutheran Murdock church bell was donated by the women of Trinity Lutheran and installed in 1906.

The bell weighs 1,200 pounds and was cast at the Stuckstede Bell Foundry our of St. Louis. 

Over the years age and weather have taken its toll on the bell, the bearings, the bell deck, and the wooden bell wheel. As you can see in the photo below a spoke of the bell wheel is actually broke. 

TrinityChurchBell3

Trinity Luthern Church loves the sound of the church bell that starts service each Sunday and will be fundraising to repair and restore the bell so it can be enjoyed for many more generations.

A display with more information and photos is located in the church fellowship hall. 

20180930 102031This week the theme was "What do you want to leave (LEAF) to Jesus?" What leaves you fearful, worried, and angry. How can you let go, and leave it to God? 

Next week I will post our bulletin board of "Leaves"
