It also features a computerized entry system along with designated parking near the entrance. "We do have a little extra room in the center if people have suggestions for different equipment, or other suggestions. We also hope to update the showers and bathroom in the future," Woelber said. The center features a wide array of fitness equipment which includes: 2 elipticals; 2 recumbent bikes; 2 NuSteps therapy chair for rehabilita- tion; 4 tread mill; 5 weight machines; 1 set of dumbbells.

Educators r0m Thaila visited Walnut Grove [:00e..mentary last week Last week at the Parent Teacher Carnival a group of educators from Thailand visited the Westbrook Walnut Grove Elementary School. The educators wanted to learn more about how schools in the area operate. They were impressed with all of the posters and art work dis- played in the halls and class- rooms. They visited several schools in southwestern Minnesota while staying in Marshall. In Thailand schools, comput- ers are used, but mainly just in computer labs. Most of the stu- dent's work is still done using paper and pencils. They were surprised at the self confidence of students in the classrooms. The Thai educators posed with some of the local students at the carnival last week.
