Kimball Class of 1956 met Sept. 16 Zion United Methodist Church in South Haven celebrated its 125th anniversary Sunday, Sept. 18, at the church. Several former pastors came to participate; those who couldn't come, sent letters. An afternoon program included comments from former pastors and from church members. All the pastors commented that Zion had been a strong influence in forming their careers; many of the pastors sent to Zion were fresh out of seminary, or nearly so. The church began in 1891 as Zion Evangelical Church. Gethsemane Evangelical closed in 1920 and merged with Zion. In 1953 the greater church merged to become Evangelical United Brethren; this merged with Methodist in 1968. The current church building is the third one for Zion; it was built in 1963. Zion UMC became part of a Tri-Community Parish with Annandale and Kimball in 1966; in 1974 it became a Bi-Parish with Kimball. In 2012, Zion became allied again with Annandale as the joint agreement with Kimball ended. Over the years, 45 pastors have served Zion, with heavy participation by lay members of the church.

Chain of Lakes soccer news The Chain of Lakes High School soccer team traveled to Prinsburg Monday, Sept. 12, to battle Central Minnesota Christian School. This was the Roosters' first opportunity this season to face a High School varsity team. At CMCS, soccer is the sport in the fall, as they do not field a football team. In addition, they have several top athletes as demonstrated by their third-place finish in the Boys High School Basketball State tournament last March. The Roosters got off to a good start, maintaining ball con- trol and playing tough defense. Unfortunately, about half way through the first hall CMCS got off an awkward shot from the side that somehow crept into the cor- ner of the net for a 1-0 lead. And as so often happens in soccer, that one goal was followed quickly by two more goals, all three in less than five minutes. But the team regained their poise and contin- ued to play hard. Until half way through the second half when another shot from the side got caught up in the wind and floated over goalkeeper Hunter Jaynes (Paynesville) head. This seemed to take the 'wind out of the sails' of the Roosters and two more goals resulted in a 6-0 loss. Thursday, Sept. 15, the Roosters traveled to Cambridge to take on Cambridge Christian School. Unlike And those were the only goals kept the game close.
