Because of their farm background they assisted with, the judging of the "Beautiful .Farm Award", given out each year by the Natural Resource Conservation Service. The Blocks also help at the Big Stone County museum. When Ortonville hosted the MS TRAM, they did a variety of volunteer services for the event. The city's Civic and Commerce have had their assistance for a variety of local events, in the capacity of community greeters, office assistants, and in other volunteer capacities. The nomination form submitted by Big Stone County Family Services stated that "(The Blocks) are caring, giving, unselfish, and very active individuals. They make a huge impact in small and also on a very large scale.

Colburn had also told council members that the bed beneath the pool has deteriorated to a point where quite a bit of water would be lost, and since this March was the fifth wettest one on record, rain and mud has slowed the projeot down. Colburn said that filling in the area under the pool was a must, and the city would end up saving money in the end. "We're going to have to go ahead and do this no matter what," he said. The council had passed a resolution at its last meeting to approve the increase in pay to MC&.R, and the change orders were approved last Monday night. The city's contract with MC&R now shows the total cost of the project a t$262,457.00. Although the deadline was extend- ed, Colburn stated that the hollow spots were now repaired, the deep end walls are done, and the crew is hoping to pour the deck on May 18. "Even though the deadline was extended, we should still come close to being done by the original June 1 deadline," he said. Other decisions made by the coun- cil last Monday included extending the deadline to Moorhead Construction Co. on the city's water plant project to June 5, and finalizing the city's five year plan for airport improvements. LaValle Berkner of the airport com- mittee was on hand to help with the plan, and stated that most of the improvements being done at the air- port will be covered 60 percent or more by the state, and some up to 90 percent.
