Wakonda Community Club reviews summer plans Wakonda Community Club members who met Wednesday noon, June 1, spent a portion of the time reviewing forthcoming events. First and foremost was the blood donoring which was to begin almost immediately following the club meeting.
The Siouxland Blood Bank is trying to establish regular times for their blood drawing efforts. They are very aware of the fact that regular visitation times for them will produce more results. The Community Club is very interested in helping them attain a regular schedule.
Sunday, June 12 will see the "Tour de Kota" bikers in Wakonda. Heritage Manor has agreed to provide and host a rest stop for the bikers. Becky McManus, the local adminstrator, has worked out some two hour schedules for anyone who is interested in helpingwith that event.
The All School Reunion will be here very soon � July 2-3. The banquet will be at the school on Saturday evening, July 2. Sunday noon will feature a noon meal at the school which is open to the public.
Some individual classes are holding some "get togethers" at other times and at other places. On Saturday, July 2, Heritage Manor will offer its multi-purpose room for a place for "out of town" folk to gather if they are looking for a place to rest a bit.
Concerning the Highway 46 sign: A committee has met with Greg Preheim and the plan is to have the sign in place prior to July 1. Arrangements have been made to have the sub structure of the sign rebuilt or reinforced prior to that time.
