Bridesmaid was Mikki Kindelberger, friend of the bride and groom. Eli Haas, brother of the groom, was best man. Groomsman was Bryan Hillman, brother of the bride. Following the trip to Las Vegas, a wedding dance was held on Saturday, Jan. 9th at the Odessa Hall. be running is almost over. I hope this is the case and will reduce the amount of fumes we are dealing with. This summer the business office and the two story secondary building will be remodeled. This will be a very busy summer as the new kitchen is a part of this area. We have been able to turn over a portion of this area to allow work to proceed for the kitchen. We would hope this would eliminate any problems of not having the kitchen ready for the next school year. By doing this it does create some other problems with the noise and dust as they work in this area. As I met with staff for the first time this fall I discussed with them that this would not be a normal year. It will take everyone's cooperation and understanding to get through this year. It has not been easy and I know there has been a lot of frustration. These problems have effected all areas of the building including my office. As the old building was coming down last summer a section of it fell backwards onto the roof above the superintendent's office. We had quite a mess in this area. So this project has effected all of us. We must keep in mind the big picture. When this project is completed the Ortonville School District will have a very nice facility to educate the students of the Ortonville area. But until that time I appreciate everyone's cooperation and understanding as we go through the remainder of this school year.
