Large turn out at this year’s Easter Egg Hunt

There were a total of 269 children, ages 0 to 12, who were registered at this year’s Timmy Bartuska Memorial Easter Egg Hunt. The event was held on Saturday, April 19th at the MLS-Mohall School.

This year a total of 31 trikes, bikes, coupes, and ride on toys were given away, as well as many other prizes. All the prizes were either purchased by businesses or individuals or they donated funds so that the prizes could be purchased by the committee chairwomen, Danielle Petersen and Tiffany Strand.

An added event to this year’s Easter Egg Hunt was a calk walk and a silent auction. Both events went very well, and all the funds from those two events will be used for next year’s Easter Egg Hunt.

Maddy Johnson, who celebrated her birthday that day, was one of the lucky cake walk winners. There were several cakes to choose from.

The Easter Bunny was in attendance for the event. Chairwomen Danielle Petersen and Tiffany Strand handed out kites to everyone attending.

Glenburn second graders create rag rugs

Students in Mrs. JoEllen Lee’s second grade class at Glenburn Public School show off their contribution to Earth Day. They are pictured above with their rag rugs which they made this past week prior to Earth Day. They recycled t-shirts into rag rugs using hula hoops. They all were very creative and colorful.

Earth Day is an annual event, celebrated on April 22nd, on which events are held worldwide to demonstrate support for environmental protection. It was first celebrated in 1970, and is now coordinated globally by the Earth Day Network, and celebrated in more than 192 countries each year.

Earth Day is a holiday to promote conservation and concern for our fragile environment. We are reminded on this day how much damage the human race has caused, and that we should do our best to correct what we can and prevent more damage as we go.

Front row, left to right: Kayla Mortensen, Delaine Hanson, Brittney Weight, Madasun Frech, Kaitlyn Nokes, and Kylie McLain.

On Sunday, April 6th through Tuesday, April 8th, 18 members of the MLS-Mohall Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America, along with their advisor, Valerie Aho, attended the 69th annual State Leadership Conference held at the Ramkota Hotel in Bismarck. Attendees participated in trainings and sessions that challenged, informed, and motivated members and their advisors to become leaders through FCCLA.

The “BE INSIDE OUT” theme was reinforced in the opening General Session by guest speaker, Mike Smith, who inspired attendees with his thought provoking message. He shared his belief that everyone has the capability to be a leader, but it takes courage and passion, and sometimes you have to be comfortable. He shared with them ways in which they can all do it. He asked delegates to think about these statements: ‘You’re leaving a legacy on this world whether you realize it or not’; and ‘What you do with your life will boil down to one question: what do you want to be remembered for?’

The conference agenda also included specific training in FCCLA Leadership programs and participation in competitive events. Tasha Hahka and Kylie McLain served as voting delegates from MLS. Members also acted as hosts for the “Take a Journey to the Land of the Rising Sun - Japan” session. Allison Voigt ran for office to represent District 2 as part of the FCCLA State Officer Team.

Delegates of the conference partnered with North Dakota Community (to read this article and many more, see this week's edition of the RCF)

Funding for this enhanced enforcement is provided through the North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT).
