Community members along with high school and elementary students are urged to try out for the cast of EV-W’s spring musical Annie.
Auditions will be in the high school choir room Tuesday,
Feb. 25, at 6 p.m. and Wednesday Feb. 26 at 3:15 p.m. Interested people have to attend only one of the audition dates. Call backs will be Thursday, Feb. 27 at 6 p.m. for those who are asked to audition a second time.
“Adults and students don’t need to prepare anything for try-outs except a willing heart,” Meyer said. “They’ll be taught small bits from a song to sing, a few dance steps and will be asked to read some lines from the script. We will be asking everyone if they have the time to put into the practices and performances so we’ll need to know what conflicts they might have.”
EV-W School Board:
A representative from the Chain of Lakes Soccer Association attended the Feb. 12 meeting of the Eden Valley-Watkins School Board to ask for $6,000. This represents a portion of the $10,000 they figure was in an account managed by EV-W Community Ed on behalf of the soccer group.
The association learned the hard way that funds are not carried over from one year to the next in the Community Ed fund, and the money that was there (at least $6,000) for soccer was used to help pay for other programs. Community Ed often operates at a deficit financially, and there are no excess funds available now to repay the soccer association.
Champions of the two-day Eden Valley-Watkins Alumni Tournament is Team 2003. They were champs two years ago and, said one player, they’ve won five or six times out of the last 10 years. Fighting for the championship Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 15-16, Team 2003 defeated Teams 2011, 1995, and 2006 for the championship. (Team 2006 took
second, and Team 1995 took third place in the tournament.) Pictured is the Champion Team 2003: Joe DeRose, Ralph Lahr, Brad Ruhland, Jeff Vossen, Chad Henfling, and Aaron Albright. Staff photo by Jean Doran Matua.
EV-W will be offering a new Food Chemistry course next year. Mrs. Tracy Huhn has written numerous grants to fund the purchase of the equipment and textbooks for this
course. The funding came from: $11,904 from MAELC (Minnesota Agricultural Education Leadership Council) and $2,000 from Perkins funds. Items purchased include
textbooks, lab manuals, MN Food Chemistry lab kits, Lab-Masters, scales, and microscopes.
