Hens Do Crow! Nov. 1, 2019

By Deborah Banish

The Rutland Community Club (RCC) Freezer Meals program concluded with another ten women in the kitchen on Wednesday, October 23. Organized by RCC President Katie McLaen, this program has been done annually and is always a fun – and often needed – event for those who are lucky to register early enough. Katie is planning a similar event in January – Kids in the Kitchen – to get the youth started early in making good, nutritious meals and to get them involved early in what Rutland has to offer. Thanks to Katie and the Community Club for sponsoring these programs!

On Sunday, October 27, 2:00 p.m.,  the Rutland American Legion Auxiliary members went around town to “Trick or Treat”. The group included Carolyn Christensen, Joanne Harris, Pam Maloney and Taryn Jenson accompanied by Taryn’s children, Beckette and Cohen Jensen. The Rutland community provided a generous donation of blankets, warm coats, gloves, scarves, stocking caps, and bags of men’s and women’s clothing and $285.00 in cash donations. Now the group will box up all the items and deliver them to the Gladys Ray Shelter for Homeless Veterans. It will take a couple trips to transfer all the items so if anyone still wants to donate there is time – just contact Carolyn Christensen.

Relay for Life

The 2014 Sargent County Relay for Life has a strong start on its fundraising before the big event next June in Milnor.  Ten teams have already registered and have been holding a variety of interesting and fun fundraisers.  There have been “no baking cookie sales” (you buy the recipes rather than make them), there was a Ladies Night to purchase items from various vendors and Two Little Old Ladies have been selling items on Facebook with all proceeds going to Relay.  Now the Rutland Rockets have created a timely event and fundraiser.  On Saturday, November 30, there will be a Zumba session at the Rutland Town Hall, from 9 to 11 a.m.  It could not have come at a better time.  How else can you wear off all the calories from Thanksgiving Dinner?  If you said, shopping ’til you drop on Black Friday that’s no excuse.  That shopping excursion gave you a lot of walking and lifting exercise so now you need to step it up a notch and Zumba. Get your groove and move with friends to help fight cancer!
