Helping a friend in need

Close to 100 neighbors, friends and relatives gathered on the Paul Voge farm north of Galva Nov. 3 to help combine Voge’s corn crop and paint an old schoolhouse museum.

Voge was diagnosed with abdominal cancer this summer and is currently waiting for approval to participate in a trial program. He said, “I’m overwhelmed by this out-pouring of support. I don’t plan on giving up and I’m going to keep fighting.”

With tears in her eyes, Paul’s wife Lois, said, “Words can’t express how heart-warming this is. We can’t thank everyone enough for what they did for us.”
