Ortonville High School's Key Club has a new event scheduled during this week's Homecoming festivities. They have designed a "Spirit Car," donated by Strege Auto of Ortonville. The old car is painted yellow and black to represent this year's Trojan Homecoming rival, the Dawson- Boyd Blackjacks. The "Spirit Car" event will be held this Thursday, evening, between the boy's volleyball game and the girl's Legionnaries release crappies into lake Recently the Big Stone City American Legion released thousands of crappie fry into Big Stone Lake. Adult crappies laid eggs in June and by mid-September the fry had grown to 2" - 3". The fish were raised at the Rearing Ponds located three miles north of Big Stone City. The release area is near two of the Legion's artificial Reefs, which will afford hiding places until the fish "Powder Puff" football game at the parking lot of the OHS Trojan baseball field. The Key Club will be selling chances for $1 to help demolish the car. Your dollar that evening will buy you a couple of swings at the old car and a chance to show your OHS support and pride. Proceeds from this fundraiser will go to support the OHS Key Club. They encourage all Trojan fans to come show their OHS spirit.
