HERITAGE HOUSE MUSEUM Roller Skating By Donna Rupp Those of us who didn't dance years ago spent many hours on the roller rinks arid there were a few around the country. One known as Tibeadeaus Rink south of Storden, one by Bean Lake on a Pederson farm, one in Comfrey at one time, one in Sanborn, which is now the Rope and Spur and Westbrook's Rink, which is now the Community Building. There was lots of skaters, especially on Saturday and Sunday nights. We made many a mile on those floors, met many people who became lifetime friends. Some were very good skaters--a big fellow-- Rollie Werner from Sanborn, helped us younger sprouts to learn to skate correctly, but when he fell, the whole building shook. Other good skaters were Ray and Glennie Pankonin of Sanborn, Maynard Matzke, Bud Rachuy, Elton Schnieder, and many more. It was a night of fun and recreation for many ages. Tex and Lois Cohrs were managers of the Westbrook Rink for many years. /Ebleskiver Days in Tyler The community of Tyler will host its iEbleskiver Days Celebration on Friday through Sunda; July 25-27, 2003, for a three-day cele- bration.
