Club meeting well attended; upcoming events discussed The monthly meeting of the Wakonda Community Club was held on March 2 and was well attended.
Uppermost on the agenda were items dealing with the March 26 lunch/bake sale/white elephant event and the current membership status.
This year the lunch/bake sale will be be held at the school, and it will be in the foyer of the new gym. The move to the gym is an effort to coincide with the Easter egg hunt, which is a Community Club sponsored event, that will be held that morning. Watch for posters and other announcements.
Membership dues have been coming in nicely and the number of members is well over half the anticipated mark. Those who have not paid their dues are encouraged to do so.
Those attending the meeting were briefed on legislation affecting school reimbursement by Supt. Larry Jonke. Sheriff Andy Howe gave a report on his department, and there was an update on Heritage Manor by Administrator Becky McManus. An effort at the Manor at this particular time is the project of selling roses which will benefit the Community Health Foundation.
Lenten services were announced, Blood Donor Day was highlighted (as it was that same day that blood was being drawn at the school from 2 to 6 p.m.) The sign along Highway #46 was also discussed.
In a new endeavor the club is looking at the possibility of doing some recyclable collection. This could be a possibility depending on what can be worked out with the Vermillion recycling business. There is the thought that possibly an area near T.J's Corner store might be available for collection.
