If you look hard enough you might find the odd cow, horse, or other more exotic farm animals in Nelson, but by far the sheep are the most outstanding in their field. This month in the Nelson Agricultural Commission column, Val introduces us to the sheep farmers of Nelson. We find that there’s quite an interesting variety of these creatures, which also factor strongly in Nelson’s history. Associated with the article there’s an enchanting slide show. Read it for the shear delight . . .
The Nelson Congregational Church received an unexpected opportunity to display the quilts made by nine UCC churches following the murder of George Floyd. Sacred Ally is one of the ministries that received funding last year from the church’s Garrett-Larsen Social Justice Fund. Rev. Chris Owen, the church’s former interim pastor, is one of the creators of the project. The Exhibit will be open in the Fellowship Hall of the church. Wed., Feb. 9, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sat., Feb. 12, noon to 3 p.m. Sun., Feb. 13, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. See the Calendar Listing for more detail . . .
