Club takes positive action on several items Members attending the monthly June meeting of the Wakonda Community Club found a busy agenda. They took positive action on several matters.
Aluminum can collection
A collection point for aluminum cans will be established as soon as the necessary arrangements can be completed. The Community Club will donate all proceeds for community endeavors. It is very likely that the location will be where the recent successful can collection was held.
Additional paper support
In an effort to provide additional news for the Wakonda Times it was voted to support a correspondent or "news gatherer" who would submit weekly items. This is conditional upon terms being pursued.
City wide rummage
The club will again give support to a city wide rummage sale to be held Saturday, June 28. For more information contact Charmaine Gullickson at the bank. This is the same date as Girard's auction, so there should be lots of activity in Wakonda that day.
The new brochure for 2003 was distributed and is available at local businesses. Appreciation was expressed for the work with the new flower barrels on Main Street. Yard of the Month is noted elsewhere in this paper.
School information relative to library hours and the use of open gym, etc., was given by business manager Carol Mayer. Sheryl Smith, Manor administrator, reported on the excellent results of a recent independent survey. (It was reported on in the last issue of the Times). She also reported that Marcia Vogt will be returning to the Manor as the director of nursing.
Ruben and Kathy Doering's new business open house, scheduled for June 14, was noted. It is called "R&K Specialities." It is located in the 100 block on Slant Street.
Support for Cornstock in the Park, to be held in August, was affirmed.
