 Braden Capek is next to the tub of food the scouts collected for their Scouting for Food event in Milligan.

Cub Scouts in Pack 218 collected food to take to Blue Valley in Geneva as part of the Scouting for Food program.  The scouts collect food every year.  This year, instead of going door to door, they placed boxes at several locations in Exeter and Milligan and then collected food on Saturday morning for several hours.

Exeter-Milligan Field Day

Exeter-Milligan elementary students got a taste of track and field events on Friday as the school hosted their annual Field Day at the Exeter campus.

There was a huge audience of parents and family members for the event.  Kindergarten, first and second graders got to try out some of the events with running events, potato sack races and also a chance to try out the high jump, long jump, and softball throw.

Third through sixth graders had the opportunity to choose their events picking  at least one field event and several running events from sprinting to long distance, hurdles to the potato sack race.

The yearly event is organized by P.E. teachers Bob Mahoney and is run by all of the elementary teachers, the high school P.E. teachers and lots of the high school students.
