Perham Harvest Fest, homecoming games and too many church gatherings to count on one hand can only mean one thing; It must be October.

The first weekend of the new month will feature both the Otter and Hillcrest Comet homecoming games tonight. The Otters will take on Grand Rapids, and the Comets will play Underwood.

Svedrup Lutheran, Central Lutheran, Nidaros, First United, Grace Lutheran and Rock Prairie churches will all host fall gatherings this weekend.
