SENTINEL TRIBUNE Wednesday, August 7, 2013 Page 7 MIRROR OF BYGONE DAYS FIFTEEN YEARS AGO August 5, 1998 The North Hero 4-H Club worked on 2 projects this summer. They held a car wash and sold pop in the Walnut Grove Park during the second week of the pag- eant. They were generous with the profits of the 2 enterprises, presenting a $90 check to Tina Richards for the Walnut Arts Station, and a $62 check to the Walnut Grove Food Shelf. On Monday, July 20, a group of WWG athletes began a 12-hour relay around the football field in Westbrook. They began passing the baton at 6 pm Monday night and finished at 6 am Tuesday morning. Whey the relay ended, they had covered 85 miles in all. The athletes took pledges to help pay for the new weight room. THIRTY YEARS AGO August 4, 1983 Most golfers take a long time playing before they score a hole-in-one, but not Susan Doubler. Susan, the daughter of John and Janice Doubler of rural Walnut Grove, will be a sophomore this fall, and last week she scored an ace on the par 3, 141 yd. 8th hole at the Tracy Country Club. In contrast to her 100th birthday observance when hundreds of friends and rein- tives gathered at the Walnut Grove Community Center to greet her, Jessie Dahms Shafer quietly started her 101 st year by spending the week-end at her home in Walnut Grove with family members. Jessie is presently residing at the Christian Manor in TracT. Fire departments for Walnut Grove and Lamberton were summoned to the Revere-Walnut Grove Farmers Elevator in Revere Monday night when the alarm in the elevator began sounding. No fire was found. Further investigation on Tuesday morning revealed a defective switch on the ele- vator's alarm system had set offthe warning signal. FORTY FIVE YEARS AGO August 8, 1968 Richard Nixon was named the Republican candidate for President on the first ballot last night. Debra Peterson returned last Wednesday after spend- ing two and a half weeks taking English riding and jumping lessons under the instruction of Mrs. Robert Bemis of Willow Creek Farm, New Market, MN. She also attended a riding clinic conducted by Hugh Wiley, former member of the U.S. Equestrian Team and rider of the famed horse, Nautical.

Director/Nurse Manage Hello to all from the ten- ants and staff at Country View Senior Living Community. It's been anoth- er beautiful week of summer weather, however I must admit that it felt a bit more like fall weather last week. The tenants have partici- pated in PoKeNo, J-I-N-G-O, BINGO, SkipBo, Rummy, Bone Builders, Stretching with Ashlee, Catholic Mass with Father Mraz, Bible Study with Pastor Tim, the tenant meeting and "Laura Ingalls Wilder Day" on Friday with an ice cream social. Alice Maas celebrated her birthday with all of the tenants on the I st with cake and coffee. Next week there will be nail painting, solitaire frenzy, the bus downtown Walnut Grove, Dominoes, Ecumenical Church on Thursday morning, Cletus Goblirsch on Thursday after- noon and then on Friday it's "purple day". The Laura Ingalls Wilder pagaent is over, but may I say a huge congratulations to Bill Richards and his crew, both acting and behind the scenes. They put on a great three weekends of shows again this year. It takes a ton of work and really good volunteers to pull everything together, and they did it! That's the news from the country. Have a great week! PRICE BIG RESULTS CALL 274-61 36 1 -800-41 O- 1 859 Ben Johnson - Swine Interview Winner Dina Vosberg - Western Pleasure Horse , Champion.
