Well, the Rutland residents have been busy these past few weeks rolling out lefse for Uffda Day. This year 5,131 lefse were made with the vast majority for sale in packages of three and about 1,000 of those lefse will be available as part of the scalloped potato and ham dinner on Sunday, October 3, 2010. Up next, the crew will be making krumkake and sandbakkels and then the rosettes — all of which will also be for sale in the American Legion building (now the Rutland Fitness Center).
A new part of the Uffda Day celebration will be the 8 a.m. 5K walk/run heading south of Rutland and then back to town. Registration forms are available online or at several area locations. Crafters will be selling their wares starting at 10 a.m.; food booths will begin selling at 11 a.m., including the dinner in the Hall; and the parade will commence at 1 p.m. Following the parade, there will be a fireman tug-o-war (about 2 p.m.) and children’s games and activities starting shortly thereafter.
So, don’t forget to head to Rutland on Sunday, October 3, for an enjoyable afternoon. The forecast for the week is sunny and, as The Rooster Crows states, the sun always shines on Rutland (even when it rains!).
