A “supermoon” rises over Ruth Lake near Emily, north of Crosby-Ironton. This photo was taken by Mary Reinke of Rice, who was vacationing with her family at that lake when this moon appeared at about 9 p.m. Friday, July 11. A supermoon is the name for the moon when it is full and during its closest approach to Earth during its elliptical orbit.
Three-year-old student Liam Emery, son of Jennifer and Chad Emery of St. Joseph, enjoys a burger and chips as he shows off his face painting at the July 9 family night at Little Saints Academy. Children and their families had the chance to watch a clown create balloon animals and to dance to music from the Teddy Bear Band. Face painting was provided by Jamie Conway; the meat served was from the St. Joseph Meat Market.
