Durham Senior Citizens met Sept. 2 for a potluck supper at the community center. There were 16 present. Lola Redger and Jaraine Redger were hosts. Sheriff Robert Craft and Travis Wilson brought the drug dog, Dax. They presented an interesting talk about how the dog is trained to find drugs. Wilson is its trainer.

Sympathy is extended to the family of Carol Ann Unruh, who died Oct. 2. Her parents are Dayton and Maratha Unruh. Starla Harms of Liberty, Ky., a sister, came and stayed with her sister, Wanda Koehn. Chris and Denise Schrock and Kai of Kidron, Ohio, also came and stayed with their parents, Larry and Wanda Koehn. Services were Oct. 4 at Morning Star Church.
