Hiring of new Ed Commissioner causes stir

October 21, 2014 State No Comments

Members of the Christ Lutheran Church in Gordonville are hoping you will join them Sunday for dinner and a silent auction to benefit a toddler.  Troy and Danielle Nussbaum’s daughter Avery, who hasn’t even reached her second birthday, has had a rough couple of months.  Event spokeswoman Shelly Kaiser tells KZIM KSIM she was a healthy, energetic baby until August 15th.

She has been undergoing therapy at Ranken Jordan Rehabilitation Hospital but is expected to come home at the end of the month.  From noon to 6pm, at the Church, members will serve smoked chicken, pulled pork, and sides for $9.  Kids 4 to 10 eat for $5, and 3 and under are free.  Kaiser says they have numerous auction items as well, but if you can’t make it there is a fund set up at Alliance Bank to donate to the family.
