Four members of
our ENGS society again judged the Heritage Class at the Dodge County Fair
on a very hot and humid day of August First. Fifteen exhibits were
presented for judging. The Plaque Best of Show from our ENGS society
went to Jenna Wesch of North Bend, NE. It was an album in Memory
of her mother, who passed away a few years ago. What a beautiful
work of art and one her family should be very proud of. It took much
thought and work to put this album together.
She will announce something new she is embarking on for the Hooper Sentinel at Hooper, Nebraska at the September meeting. She might end up being Mudball Claire!

And Noted in the Hooper Sentinel the following week
A number of the friends of Mr and Mrs John Aldrich, thought that the
only way for the young couple to commence their married life properly was
by initiating them and this was done Monday night. Rice was freely
used to commence the exercises. The Cornet Band went along
and furnished plenty of good music. A number of very useful articles
were presented to the happy couple by their friends among them being two
rocking chairs, a foot stool and a child’s high chair, the gift of the
members of the Knights of Pythias of which order Mr Aldrich has been K
of P and S for several years. To make the high chair complete a bottle
of Castoria and a baby rattle were attached to it. It was a jolly
party that went out and they were well entertained, refreshments of ice
cream and cake were served to all, while to the gentlemen who smoked cigars
were issued with a lavish hand.

25 YEARS TEACHER
Twenty-five years is a long time for one person to be a teacher in one school, especially when that school is his first charge, but such is the record of H Grosse, master of the Trinity German-English Lutheran school, south east of Snyder, he having completed his twenty-five years of service last Sunday, and in honor of the occasion he was given a party at his home that evening that came in the nature of a genuine old time surprise. The house was well filled with people who were once his pupils and who now have children receiving instruction from him. In point of number of years taught in school Mr Grosse is the oldest teacher in the state of Nebraska, although there are a number who are second to him by but a few years, and all of whom have served in one school for more than 20 years. Among these is H Foelber, who will on Sep 29th, have completed 21 years in the Snyder school. The period of 25 years of stay of Mr Grosse in the Trinity school has seen many changes take place all of which have had to do with the betterment and advancement of a people. ..... In short, in the short period of twenty-five years, he has seen a complete change in every respect in the community in which he has lived. As a fitting tribute to his faithful service the patrons of the school made up and presented Mr Grosse with a purse of $25. It was just 25 years last Sunday since Mr Grosse was installed by Rev J P Mueller, now located at Norfolk.
