Murdock News October 31, 2018

Halloween is here and Murdock is ready and in full swing.

IMG 8858 603 Houses are ready for Trick or Treaters. Pumpkins are out, witches are ready.

IMG 8857 602 Don't miss all the scarecrows, how many can you find in Murdock? They are in places you would not expect. Some are easy to find, others are a little hidden.

IMG 8864 609 The Scarecrows have multiplied over the years and just keep getting better and better. 

IMG 8863 608 Maybe there will be a scavenger hunt next year. That would be fun.

IMG 8862 607 But all good things have to come to an end.

It has been so fun to see all of the autumn decorations in Murdock but now it is time to put the M.I.T. scarecrows to rest for another year.

Sunday, November 4th at 2 PM, all ages are welcome to meet at the Town Hall.

Please bring scissors or pocket knife to cut the plastic zip ties holding the scarecrows in place. A wire cutter was lost when putting scarecrows up so keep your eyes on the lookout when taking them down.

Scarecrows need to get taken to the old fire barn to be stored. All cornstalks can be taken there as well as the flowers from the planters. Children might enjoy removing the miniature scarecrows from the planters. A wheelbarrow will help us move pumpkins to the outside Town Hall wall.

This take-down can be done in quick time with many helping hands. Volunteers are essential to continue our “events”.

As you may know, Linda Glantz is retiring from M.I.T. after founding MURDOCK PRIDE four years ago.

It will be very workable for events to continue by breaking down tasks into smaller pieces for volunteers. One person will need to be M.I.T. leader to have a name on the bank account to reimburse others for needed purchases. One person has offered to lead next year’s Scarecrow Event. We need someone to chair the upcoming Christmas in Murdock event ASAP. Contact Linda today. It will be exciting to see the fresh ideas in the future!

Remember the old story about something needing to be done and Somebody thought Everybody would do it but Nobody did it when Anybody could have done it. Let’s not let that happen with M.I.T. events. See you Sunday!

   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 Lutheran 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.

TrinityChurchBell2

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

This 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"
