Friends Help Farmer

Dennis Holst, a pastor in Marysville, Kansas spearheaded an effort to help an Odell couple harvest their crops this year. Holst organized friends and neighbors of John and Sarah Novotny who are life-long residents of Odell. Approximately 20 volunteers in combines, semi trucks and grain haulers worked their way in and out of the fields Friday, tackling the Novotnys’ 400 acres near Odell.

In 2010 Sarah Novotny was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.
