The Rutland Community Club (RCC) has been keeping the town hopping this past week – and plans to continue holding events and activities throughout the summer. The Summer kick-off – Family Fun Night – was held last Thursday, June 6 at the Veterans Memorial Park. Over 150 area residents came to participate in the fun. Michael Mahrer was the grill chef preparing the burgers and hot dogs for the meal. The Community Club provided salad, chips, beverages and dessert. Everyone enjoyed the meal. Katie McLaen, RCC President, emceed the event that started with the announcement and crowning of Miss Rutland Jordan Peplinski and the crowning of Miss Lefse Lucy Mahrer and Mr. Lefse Brody Mahrer (cousins!). Following the royalty crowning, three teams were challenged with the Rutland trivia game covering several events from Rutland history and recent items of interest. The team of Norbert Kulzer, Pam Maloney and Lori McLean won the challenge and were awarded gift certificates to The Lariat Bar and Grill. The full list of the trivia questions – and photos of the three teams – can be found on the Rutland blog along with other pictures from Fun Night.
