Timbercrest Turkey Trot, 2021 was awesome!

We had an awesome turn out for our second annual Timbercrest Turkey Trot. Thank you to all who came and contributed to the fun! The course was especially tough this year with a chilly temperature of around 37 degrees. We had three age groups for the competition. For the over-18 group, James Hicks took the repeat win from last year! In the U18 group, Henry Humble hooked the prize! Finally for the 10 and under group, Timothy Zinn had a very impressive showing and took the gold. The gathering and catching up was lots of fun as well!

Apple Slices - November 2021

This recipe has been a favorite in our family for many years and would be great for Thanksgiving.  It is derived from St. John's church cookbook in West Bend, WI.  The crust is more tender because of the milk and egg, so making it easier to work with than the standard pie crusts.  Enjoy:
