Director/Nurse Manager Snowy greetings to all from the staff and tenants at Country View. It certainly has been a chilly experience going outdoors this week! We hope that you all enjoyed celebrating the holidays with family and friends despite the cold. Activities this week have included PoKeNo, J-I-N- G-O, BINGO, Yahtzee, Hand & Foot canasta, Solitaire Frenzy, Bone Builders, Stretching with Ashlee and Arts & Crafts. Looking forward to next week there will be opportuni- ties for the tenants to partici- pate in the New Years party on Monday evening, Catholic Mass on Thursday moming and an ice cream social on Friday afternoon. Weight checks will be done on Wednesday morning as well. The regular calendar of events will also take place daily. January birthdays include Katherine Louise Malmberg on the 14th and Ernest Maas on the 30th. Please extend warm wishes to them both. That's the news from the country. Have a great week! MIRROR OF BYGONE DAYS TEN YEARS AGO January 2, 2003 Several families took advantage of the spring like weather to wet their lines on Fox Lake north of Currie Saturday afternoon. The kids amused themselves playing on the slippery, wet ice. It began 50 years ago, and has been done on a weekly basis every week since then -- that's a minimum of 2600 cleanings. Last week the board of Redwood County Farmers Mutual Insurance Company presented Gladys Darkow with a cedar chest in her honor and loyalty for keeping the firms' office clean. She is still doing an excellent job and the firm wanted to show their appre- ciation. TWENTY YEARS AGO December 30, 1992 Snow fell during the night on Monday, December 28, and everyone woke up to a white world on Tuesday. Even the temperatures have hovered around zero for the past week. WWG Middle School stu- dents collected food items during December for the Walnut Grove Food Shelf. A total of 466 items were col- lected by grades 5 through 8. Elementary students were also involved in the drive. The lower grades gave the items they collected to the upper school classes for counting. THIRTY YEARS AGO December 30, 1982 Ronald Kuehl, vice presi- dent of the Citizens State Bank of Walnut Grove, pre- sented a check for $1,000 to former U.S. Rep. John Zwach, and Dr. Robert Johnson, vice president of public affairs at Southwest State University, toward establishment of the Zwach chair of Local Government at SSU. A winter storm roared into our area and had everything to a stand still by early Tuesday morning. Snow started Monday afternoon, and by Monday night, winds had increased and tumed the white stuff into a major bliz- zard. Kindergartners visited their teacher, Mrs. Jack Wiecks, who in on a convalescent leave. The children exchanged girls with their teacher just prior to the holi- day.
