Frank and Joy Brussel made a brief trip to Coquille, Oregon to wish Frank's sister-in-law, Lou Grace Heyman, a happy 90th birthday. While there they got to visit with most of the Heyman family and also welcomed a new baby, Katelyn Clark, who was born Monday, the 13th. Katelyn is a great niece of Frank's. The weather was wonderful, freezing in the morning but warmed up nicely in the daytime.
Another pleasant surprise was when they called home and learned it had rained two inches.

The countywide Christmas Party will be December 10 at the Waring Schoolhouse with Comfort as the host.
