One-Act Play And Dinner This Friday At Banner County School


November 14, 2019

Good morning Banner County, friends near and far. A chilly one it has been at that.

Thankful for the bit of snow; any moisture is welcome right now even though corn harvest is yet to be finished.

Banner County School has been bursting with activity lately. The veterans program was very nice once again this year and will be followed by a junior high wrestling meet at Hemingford at 10 o’clock today and Nov. 14.

Friday will be the date of the annual One Act Play and Dinner which will begin at 6 p.m. I am sorry, but for once I do not know anything about the play.

I do know, , that on the 19th, which is next Tuesday, these students will take their talent to Creek Valley. On the 20th there will be district FFA competition in Chadron, and so we wish safe travel and good luck to all of these students.

We are sorry to here of a past Banner County residents passing, Art Hottell was born and raised here. His parents were the first folks in Harrisburg that I was to meet some 40-plus years ago and our sympathy goes out to his family.

Celebrating a birthday this week are Delaney McGowan, Kendra Marx, Scott Ansley, James Cross, Margaret Hopkins and Jordan Knaub. Happy Happy Birthday!

Congratulations to anniversary couples Mr. & Mrs. Doug Olsen, Monty Sandberg, and Josh Schmidt.

One last note about our fair village. Flowerfield  school was completed for this year with over 900 students attending this season. Think of all of those memories! Thank you once again to Lois and June and all of the ladies who volunteer their time.
