Congratulations, Dean Mozena and the whole Mozena family. Dean has been driving bus for Hendricks Bus Service and the Kimball schools for 55 years. He’s not retiring anytime soon, but his family held an open house to commemorate his 55 years so far. Pictured are the Mozenas: Penny, Pam, Karen, Dean, Kari, and Dale.
The 2012 Fair Haven Old Settlers Royalty invites you to this year’s celebration, the 87th annual. From left, Princess Gracie Lantto, Queen Jenna Maus, Miss Congeniality Kenzie Traurig. These girls will say their farewells in a program at 1 p.m. (Note that there is no coronation Saturday because there were not enough girls to participate this year. Gracie, Jenna and Kenzie could be the last Fair Haven royalty.)
Another Valley Daze is now history. A raging thunderstorm cut Friday evening’s activities short, canceling the kiddie tractor pull and the fireworks. The grand parade was cancelled this year only for construction work that was planned but not yet begun. It still was a fun weekend, with lots to do for everyone. Thanks to the many volunteers and all who worked so hard to make this year’s Valley Daze yet another success!
The Watkins Lioness Club will again be sponsoring the Little Miss Watkins Pageant during the Kraut ’N Wurst annual celebration in August.
