SENTINEL TRIBUNE Wednesday, July 24, 2013 Page 6 GLANCES IN THE PAST FIFTEEN YEARS AGO July 22, 1998 Nearly 300 members and former members were on hand to celebrate Our Savior's Lutheran Church, in Dovray, one hundredth anni- versary. The celebration brought together many for- mer members and clergy to reminisce about the past. The church was packed to the rafters Sunday morning with every overflow area nearly full of worshippers. Last week Mark Schoborg was surprised when he received a prep bowl jacket from his high school days. The jacket was found this spring about 5 miles north of Springfield, about 50 miles away. The Schoborg home was destroyed by a tornado earlier this spring. THIRTY YEARS AGO July 2.1, 1983 Adam Rachuy, a 1978 graduate of Westbrook High School, assumed duties as Westbrooks new Vo-Ag instructor the middle of July. He has taught one year at Ivanhoe.

Visitors at the Roger and Sanford Health launches Carolyn Benson home the past 3 weeks have been: Shelley Keeler, Tacoma, WA; Same Day appointments DoreenTumer, Chressieand Torin, Ed and Michael Same Day appoint- ments for Family Medicine, Pediatrics, OB/GYN and Internal Medicine Sioux Falls, SD-- Sanford Health is breaking barriers when it comes to patient care. People are driven by busy schedules, and when illness or injury strikes, they want to be seen as quickly as pos- sible. Sanford is meeting that need with Same Day at Sanford, the service was cre- ated to increase patient access for primary care needs the very same day. "Our patients have been asking for this, and we're responding to the request," said Dan Blue, MD, president of Sanford Clinics. Sanford Health launched the service in the Sioux Falls region today. Other regions will begin same day services in the coming weeks. The service is available in: family medicine, internal medicine, pediatrics and obstetrics and gynecology. Dawson, Sioux Falls, SD; The process is simple. Patients can schedule an appointment through Same Day at Sanford by calling their primary care clinic or the Same Day phone line at (855) SAME-DAY. When patients call the Same Day phone line, a scheduler con- nects them with the appropri- ate clinic so they can be seen as quickly as possible. "Every effort will be made for patients to see their pri- mary care physician. If that physician isn't available, we will make arrangements for an appointment with a col- league at that local clinic or a nearby clinic if necessary," said Dr. Blue. Same Day appointments will be treated the same as an office visit at the providing clinic. The appointments are also available to patients with Medicaid coverage. To schedule an appoint- ment, patients can call their local clinic or dial (855) SAME-DAY. Learn more about this unprecedented service at sameday.

They had invited members of the classes of 1965 and 1967 as well as former teachers to join them. Two of the 1965 class, five of the 1967 class, and two former teachers joined the twelve 1966 class mem- bers for a delicious meal and a great evening of vis- itin Rena Wald and Larry Thompson, mem- bers of the class of 1966, sent letters of greeting. Graduates numbered 26 in 1965, 21 in 1966, and 17 in 1967. Seven members of the three classes are deceased. Bob Van Maasdam reviewed the 1965 Storden yearbook, The Tiger, and led a "Do you remem- ber?" session, reflecting on classes, activities, and faculty and staff who had role in the lives of this group of students. One highlight included discussion of the spring 1965 recording ses- sion of the high school choir (classes of 1965-68.) The music was taped in the newly-built Storden Baptist Church sanctuary, and choir director Donald Ecoff submitted the tape to a recording studio for production of the vinyl records. Thanks to a 1972 Sylvania "solid state ste- reo" turntable and speak- ers, the group was able to listen to the recording at the reunion. Fifteen of the attendees had sung in that choir. Appreciation to Ruthann Larson Mostoller, Annette Solomonson Smith, and Bob Van Maasdam for their efforts in planning this event. As the old say- ing goes, "A good time was had by all."
