MLS CloseUp students traveled to Washington, DC and New York City

MLS CloseUp students making the trip this year to Washington, DC and New York City are back row, left to right: Kasie Evanger, Allison Voigt, Kylie McLain, Delaine Hanson, and Shannon Asheim. Front row, left to right: Sierra Linstead, Zavure Frech, Cameren Powell, Berkley Santos, Zackary Urfer, and Cheyenne Naumann.

A total of eleven students, LoAyne Voigt, and Janet Asheim took part in this educational trip which gave them insight to the way the federal government works. For several, this was their first time on an airplane or traveling on the Metro system. They had many memorable experiences as they walked over 60 miles sightseeing and participating in study visits.

The week-long study gave the MLS CloseUp students an opportunity to see and meet the people who formulate the nation’s most important issues, to witness the democratic process in action during debates, and to visit historical sites that make the capital city so remarkable.

During their day on Capitol Hill, the students were able to meet with North Dakota’s delegation. The students had prepared questions on current issues which they were able to ask of the Congressmen during their meetings.

They toured and participated in study visits of many monuments, the Holocaust Memorial Museum, Museum of National Archives, National Zoo, National Botanical Gardens, various embassies, Arlington Cemetery, White House, and the Capitol. While in New York City their lessons and tours included the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Times Square, Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, 9/11 Memorial, Wall Street, Central Park, Little Italy, Top of the Rock Visit, Brooklyn Bridge, and China Town. They were also able to attend a Broadway show which was the highlight of the trip for many.

The students would again like to express their appreciation to everyone for supporting their fundraisers for this educational experience. For many, this opportunity would not have been possible without the community’s generous support.

Fund drive being held for renovations to Crow’s Nest at Sports Complex in Mohall

The 25 year old Crow’s Nest at the Sports Complex in Mohall is in need of renovations. Funds are needed to install new steel siding and upgrade the windows on the building. Can you help?

By LaVonne Erickson

The Crow’s Nest Building at the Sports Complex in Mohall is in need of some repairs and a project is in the works to make those renovations.

Dan Dew, project chairman, has obtained estimates for renovations for the 25 year old building. Plans are to put new steel siding on the Crow’s Nest and hopefully replace the windows. Cost for the repairs is estimated at just under $6,500.00. Francis Hall of Mohall has been contracted to do the work, with the project to be completed by the end of May.

Applications have been submitted to the Mohall City Sales Tax Fund and the Mohall Fire Department Gaming Fund to get the project off the ground. Other funds will need to come from private donations. Therefore, a fund drive is being held to help with those renovations. Anyone wishing to make a donation to the project may leave their check at Dakota West Credit Union in Mohall or send them to project manager, Dan Dew, at P O Box 172, Mohall, ND 58761. Checks should be made out to Booster Club Sports Complex Project.

Any additional funds will be used for improvements inside of the Crow’s Nest (kitchen area, bathrooms, and upstairs).

The building was built in 1990 and was dedicated at a ribbon cutting ceremony on June 2nd of 1990. The Sports Complex, along with the Crow’s Nest Building, were built back then by a group of dedicated citizens, all through private funds. Over time things need to be updated, and it is time for this building to receive those upgrades. Your help is needed again to give this Crow’s Nest a new look, so that it can continue to be used.

If you have any questions in regard to the renovation project you may contact Dan Dew at 756-6320 or 240-9606.
