Time and Place: Grateful for Parks in Town

Stuart J. Mentink Memorial Park is a small park near the railroad tracks and a business area in Oostburg, Wisconsin. We often reflect upon how thoughtful the growth has been in general over the years.

The post from June 18, 2019 features photos from Stuart J. Mentink Memorial Park in June.

September Park also has photos from Stuart J. Mentink Memorial Park this year.

I like to think we are adding to local history with some of our posts.

Local History and Stores

Yesterday I learned that the Gibbsville orchard has new owners, as of July 1, 2018 – as I read at their site M&T’s Gibbsville Orchard. Please see their site for more information and their story.

We have watched beautiful orchards for years.

sometimes by sight
in my life of faith
apple trees in bloom

And it is also time to visit Gibbsville Cheese again.

Over the years, a blog can become a record of local history.

Best wishes to all,
