Local Scouts volunteer at community garden

With the coronavirus pandemic keeping residents of the Sanford Long Term Care Center confined to their rooms much of the day, the new Activities Director Samantha Moody was looking for something to brighten their day. After consulting with the Chamber of Commerce office, Moody contacted the local Scouts BSA Troop 249B and 249G to see if they were interested in taking on the task of planting the community garden located near the Care Center. Last Sunday, troop leaders and scouts tilled and planted corn, watermelon, pumpkins, squash, sunflowers, and marigolds. According to Assistant Scout Master Jared Hanzlik, six scouts have volunteered to weed the garden weekly. Moody stated that “if” they have a harvest they plan to use the produce at the Harvest festival in the fall. Photo courtesy Angi Hanzlik

Former Chamberlain School District teacher Don Giese presented the school board with a copy of a written history of the athletic field that was named in his honor following his retirement in 1998. Giese, who held various positions, including Athletic director and coach, at the district during his 40 years of service, told board members he always wanted to record the history of the complex which later led to the building of the CHS and CMS on Sorensen Drive. The document is available for reading at the high school library.
