Due to this rise, the Board is reminding people to vaccinate their pets for rabies and avoid contact with any domestic or wild animals that are acting abnormally. Since July 1, 2004, the Board has confirmed 23 pos- itive animal rabies cases across the state. So far, the state has seen 50 rabies cases in 2004. In 2003, there were 49 cases of rabies in MN. Recent cases have resulted in multiple people being exposed to rabies. Animal and pet owners can reduce the risk of their animals contracting rabies by: vaccinating animals; not feeding wild or stray ani- mals; not approaching wild, stray or unfamiliar animals; reporting wild animals that are showing abnormal behavior (aggression, fear- lessness, or otherwise acting out of character) and all stray animals to local ani- mal control officers. These animals can spread rabies; If you animal contacts a wild animal, especially a skunk or a bat, report it to your veterinarian or the Board of Animal Health at 651-296- 2942; Animals too young to be vaccinated (less that 12 weeks old) should be housed away from stray and wild animals. If you are bitten by an animal, contact your physi- cian and the MN Department of Health at 612-676-5414 or toll free at 1-877-676-5414.

Above Christians held one of the damaged fittings which they were replacing Monday morning. i To all who came or helped with the Oovray Centennial: The City of Dovray celebrated its Centennial - 1904-2004 on July 10th and 11th. It was sport- sored by the Dovray Area Boosters and we feel that it was a great success. We wanted to make it a gift to all as much as we could so almost everything was free except the food. We went to thank all who attended and all those who worked to make it a success. We provided free entertainment - The Emerald TKIe and Kuipepper County, the free carriage rides and games for tots. Luther and Janice Tostengard lined up the beautiful carriage for the rides. " Thanks to Matt Jackels and Alan Huset for constructing the two volleyball courts and the tournament. It was a well attended, well planned, fun addition to our celebration. Thanks to the firemen for all their work. The Diet Club ran the Fish Pond and the E)ny Dumplings had well over 200 fishers for treasures. Jane Weis, Mardella Olson and LuAnn Jackels painted the park equipment and It was very busy. We must thank the media for the coverage before end all the neat pictures which will go into the history and scrapbooks all over. Thanks to Junior Severson who lined up and ran a One Man Root Beer Float stand. Good weren't they? Schwans donated the ice cream until we ran out and did a run for more. The firemen manned the beer garden which was a very busy place. And they say Norwegians only drink coffee. Dorothy Lien and Judy Weinzetl organized the Flea Market. Neat. Judy Weinzetl put together a taxi service with five or six golf cars and they were busy. A lady from Heron Lake put up a food stand which was a busy, nice addition. Jane Wals orgahized the food and helpers for the D.A.B. concession stand. Steve and Sue Johnson did a great job getting the parade going with well over 100 units. Thanks to John Stutz for announcing the parade. Always nice to see the politicians take time to be in the parade. And it was nice to see many former Miss Dovray girls as well the the present Miss Dovray Ashley Hansen in the parade. The 4-H had a Ring Toss game and lots of winners of a liter of pop. Sheila and Bob Leonard sold food for the dance. Peggy Klasse had a fun Pet Show and it was fun to see little kittens and other animals with ribbons around their necks. Great. Pam Barry put together a "Games for Tots" and was overwhelmed with customers. Ruby Yochem, Helen Iverson, and Vonnie Hollingsworth were in charge of making, displaying and selling tickets on two lovely quilts. The rose cross stitch was won by Eiouise Busswitz and the Dovray Business Quilt was won by Bntta Kolve and she said she was giving it to her Grandmother - Wally Hager in Seattle. Bob Olson and Shannon Cohrs put in two Horse Shoe games and they were busy. Derek, Denise, Dwayne Eichner and Dan McClellan ran a popular 3 on 3 basketball tournament. Arlene and John Lindquist put up posters all over and collected door prizes. Wesley Lindstrom arranged the nearest Old and Unique Tractor display. We also lined up Friday and Saturday night all night guards. Luther Tostengard was respon- sible for the Old Car Display. Some were in the parade. Janice Tostengard and Mary Ann Vosberg opened a place in the church for a museum. Many brought old pictures and things and we old relics really enjoyed it. It was nice Pare Sundahl was a clown in the parade. Maury and Mike Kuehl sprayed the park I- for mosquitoes. JoAnn Shaw ordered and sold many, many T-Shirts. T-Tommy catered the supper with over 550 dinners. The 4-H painted the Back Drop and the stage. Very pretty. Mardella Olson made 9 street signs - they are still up for memories. Bob and Butch put them up. Very Rachuy drew resemblances of old Dovray and made them up into notes and frameable pictures. They are still for sale in the Cafe till gone. Nice keepsake. Pastor Meiba Smith organized an Ecumenical Church service for the park. But it rained hard Sunday morning so it was held in the Church. The new Queen Ashley Hansen was formally pre- sented her crown by former queen Natalie Hansen, her sister. The scholarships were awarded to Michal Barrle and Jordan Dibble. Then a huge potluck dinner was served. In the afternoon Bernie Schlichte and helpers put together a Tractor Pull. Neat. There was also free bingo in the park with some nice prizes. What this letter is all about is that we are so happy that it was well attended, and so many people worked herd and seemed to enjoy doing it. A deputy walked around. We only had one fight. Two four year oids wanted the slide at the same time. They settled it themselves. If we missed any- one, it was unintentional. We are just so happy that it went so well. We are thankful.
