West Central Dairy Days I si recipe contest set Mu ngs from the Museum Do you have a favorite recipe cream, andy,,gurt. using dairy products? Here's your 5. Recipes do not need to be origi- By: Norman Shelsta, Historical Society Board Member A belated Happy Easter to everyone from us at the museum, and a wonderful springtime and a very bountiful farming year is our wish for you all at this time. The winter was quite mild, as compared to alot of other years in recent times. Our Sports and Leis,e show was a big success as usual. Our museum's booth featured the history of the rural schools in Big Stone County. The Larry Helgeson family did an excellent job of coordinating the ideas that portrayed life in a rural school. His very detailed map of the county, with each rural school, is on display at our museum for you to see on your next visit. Every school is numbered, and many of them have pictures that accompany them. Personally I had a stake in rural education myself, having attended one for eight years, then several years later, teaching rural schools in South Dakota . That is where the first five years of my 33 year teaching career took place. So you who attended rural school know aim about-the things that went on. Those Chnst05 prpgra-u were + exciting, and the County Superintllent's two visits each term, made everyone shiver, especially the teacher, or didn't you notice??? I know that I certainly did, those were quite file days !!!!! Our museum staff has been busy all winter, keeping the museum open every day. We are now doing some remodeling, but welcome your visit Prairie Five menu Reservations may be made by calling the Senior Center.

Congratulations to the Trojan Basketball Team, on their huge success in going farther into the state tournaments than anyone has ever gone before. When more fans are in the bleachers cheering than there are residents in the city of Ortonville, we know that there was alot of excitement for everyone. For many of us still at home watching it on television there was excitement everywhere. So thanks to the parents, teachers, coaches, players, and all the fans who cheered you onward.
