Seminarian Glen Borhart conducted the service while Pastor Harm gave the sermon. The sermon was the first one that he had given at Trinity thirteen years ago. The sermon was about peoples needs to find themselves, to find happiness and to have a new beginning and how they can find it through God. Pastor had to stop several times to compose himself. Following the service Pastor and Mrs. Harm greeted their family and friends in a tearful reception line. Old and new friends wished Pastor good luck on his new job. A delicious pot-luck luncheon was held for about 200 of Pastors friends and family. At the head table with Pastor and Mrs. Harm were their children and grandchildren, Trinity Lutheran Directors, Mayor and Mrs. Donald Enstrom and Father Day of St. Mary's Catholic Church and his neice, Eleanor Roth. Concluding lunch, MC Ralph Drafall introduced Mayor Donald Enstrom who said that he had orders to keep his speech short and to watch his language. He wished the best of luck to the Harms and told everyone what an asset Pastor had been to the community. Rev. William A. Bauman, a retired minister from McHenry, II., praised Pastor Harm, gave some ofthe attributes of F. Harm. F for Faithful; H for Honest; A for Advising; R for Regular and M for Ministering. MC Drafall introduced Father L. D. Day who had given Pastor Harm a gift of money from the St. Mary Congregation, in appreciation ofthe good work which he had done in the oommunity. He said that God would always help him in his work and wished him much success. • Many of the Trinity Lutheran Church Organizations gave tbe Harms gifts. Fran Borhart presented Pastor with t money gift frxnn the Ladies Aid and a picture of the head of Christ from the AHju* Guild. The picture was unusual in that it was made by using the words of St. John's Gospel to form the head. Mrs. Borhart said thtt it was a double loss for these organizations as they were losing not only their Pastor but also their president. Mabel Schultz presented the Harms with a gift of money from the Aid Association for Lutherans. The L.W.M.L. was represented by Marge Manke who read Pastor a poem and gave him a Sterling SUver Water Pitcher from Coadaoad •¦ beMe Pag* About 9 p.m. last Tuesday night, a tornado touched down at the Clarence Aavang Farm at 9105 Algonquin Road. The tomado smashed down com and took down the roof of the bam. Parts of the bam roof were strewn in the front yard as well as on the sides and floor of the bare. Amazingly, the grain elevator next to the bam on the west side is still standmg as are two others which are southeast of the bam. Several storage sheds were torn apart with their metal sides being turned and twisted as if they were pieces of aluminum foil. Luckily the farming equipment which was housed in these sheds was untouched. Trees of all sizes were riped from the ground and flong all around the yard and in the com field. The Aavang house was in fairly good condition except for a sagging porch and some roof damage firom the strewn trees. At the time the tornado hit, Mr. & Mrs. Aavang had retired for the night. Mrs. Aavang said that she ran for the basement when she heard the glass breaking but that by the time she got there it was all over. Her son aad a friend were in the milk house, which was directly east ofthe bam, working on a motorcycle when the tomado hit. The two boys hit the floor. The shed which they occupied was demolished. One bey had 4 stitches in the shin while the othet suffered only bruises. Mr. Aavuig's brother said that tbe tornado had Mt a 60 foot wide path. All the airplanes on dw property were natoodied.
