Ads Get Noticed. Reading This One Aren't You?) Four new directors elected at Alumni Association mtg. The annual meeting of the Ortonville Alumni Association was held at the Ortonville High School Commons last Saturday, August 16. Twenty-three OHS alumni were present for the meeting, and the meet- mg was chaired by Craig Randleman, Treasurer. Among the business conducted, four directors were elected to fill the expiring terms of Julie Gruber, Jim Hippie, Luella Strege and Linda Toner. New directors elected into the three-year term include Bobbie Oakes, Janet Olson, Jim Hippie and Linda Toner. Special recognition was given to Ann Rosenwald Lundberg by her fel- low classmates, the Class of 1953, who celebrated their 50th Reunion last Thursday, August 14. OHS Class of 1953 made a $700 donation to the Alumni Scholarship Fund in honor of Ann Lundberg for her many years of hard work for the Alumni Association, including the publication of the annual Alumni Newsletter. Future alumni projects and all school reunions were discussed, but no decision was made as they were tabled for further research. I Library corner The hours of the Ortonville Library are Monday - Thursday 12 - 8 p.m. and Friday and Saturday 10 -3 p.m. Watch for signs and ads on our fund raiser in Bill's Super Valu parking lot on August 29 and 30th. We will be having a grilled hot dog, pop and an ice cream bar for $1,50 from 10:30 - 2 p.m. Funds will be used to purchase new computers at the library. New in Suspense is Clive Cussler's "White Death". A confrontation between a radical environmentalist group and a Danish cruiser forces NUMA Special Assignments Team leader Austin and colleague Joe Zavala to come to the rescue of a ship of trapped men, a situation that is further complicated by the sinister workings of a corrupt multinational corporation. New in Biography is "The Kennedy Curse" by Edward Klein. Traces the misfortunes of the Kennedy family from the 1830s to the present to consider the author's theories about the family's biological inclinations toward trouble, citing such events as Joseph Kennedy's political activities, John Jr.'s marriage to Carolyn Bessette, and Jackie's struggles with anxiety. Also new is "Living History" by Hillary Rodham Clinton. The U.S. Senator from New York offers a thought provoking, candid chronicle of her eight years as First Lady of the United States, looking back on her husband's two administrations, the challenges she faced during the period, the impeachment crisis, her own political work and more. New in History is "The Dream: Martin Luther King, Jr. and the Speech that Inspired a Nation" by Drew D. Hansen. Describes the 1963 March on Washington and continues with an analysis of King's history making speech, examining it as a political treatise, a work of poetry, and an effectively delivered sermon filled with biblical imagery. Letters to the editor I I I I To the Editor: Even though the Tram was almost a month ago; we want to say how happy we are that we called Greta to let her know that we were interested in housing a couple!! We made two very good friends!! They were Glen and Lou Schulz from Cannon Fails. Glenn who is 68 and retired from Northwest Airlines in 1999 having I worked in the baggage department for a number of years. This was his 10th year riding. Lou was a 5th grade teacher for 32 years and also retired 1999. This was her 9th year of riding. We feel like we have known them for a long time. We just went to LaCrosse, WI to visit Donny's sister and husband. We came back through Cannon Falls and visited with Glenn and Lou and had lunch with them. In October, they are driving to Colorado to visit their one daughter; they plan to stay overnight with us on their way. We are looking forward to that visit. We would not hesitate to house another couple if the Tram comes to Ortonville again and hopefully it will be Glen and Lou if they are still riding in it. In the meantime we hope to remain good friends. It has been a rewarding experience! !

Clubs are made of parents, volunteer leaders and other 4-H members. They meet once a month and have youth officers that are elected in the fall to conduct the meetings. The clubs have a variety of activities that they participate in during the year. They also select community service projects to do to help out the community. They also have a leader that helps organize the club and makes sure everyone gets the information they need in a timely manner. 4-H members get to select projects that they can learn about during the year. They can select one or more depending upon their interest. In 4-H there are projects like: Clowning, photography, shooting sports, pets, computers, livestock, wildlife and much more. During the year there are project meetings and trainings that members can attend and learn more about the project. 4-H adventures like project days are great examples where members can attend and learn about, project areas. Getting green also means you can attend 4-H Adventures. During the I year there are many 4-H Adventures such as: Project Bowls, Project Days, Camps, Share the Fun, Field Days, and Leadership Retreats. 4-H Adventures happen for the whole county or a group of counties depending upon the Adventure. At these there is a chance to meet other youth from around the county or from other counties. 4-H Adventures are a great place to learn more about 4-[] and what happens in other counties. 4-H members can be any ages. Cloverbuds are for youth who are Kindergarten through 3rd grade. Anyone 4th grade and older is in regular 4-H. All ages are welcome at 4-H club meetings and some Adventures can be grade specific. Some of the activities can be mentally and physically challenging and that is why some activities would be grade specific. So why would you want to "Get Green". The great thing about 4-H is all of the life skills that you learn while you are in 4-H. Members can also have the chance to explore careers and develop skills that they can use in later life. Here is an example: "Sarah was in the child development project for many years and last year she was hired for a teacher. Her time in the child care project developed an interest for Working with children and now she is doing just that!" Check out and attend a county fair and get a good snapshot of what "Getting Green" is like!
