It's that time of the year!  Exeter's team started their season last week.  Look for schedules posted around town and here on the Village website. (And no, the teams aren't using cows to fill the bench these days).

Exeter-Milligan Third and Fourth Graders Field Trip in Lincoln

Exeter-Milligan Third and Fourth Grade classes took their annual field trip on Thursday.  They began the day with a tour of Memorial Stadium, where they got to see the inside workings of the stadium and work out rooms before trying to touch the lucky horse shoe and running the tunnel walk out onto Tom Osborne field.  Next they walked to Morrill Hall to watch a show at the planetarium.  Lunch was provided the Soybean Board of Nebraska along with some special gifts.  The students then traveled to the State Capitol where they had a tour which included the Supreme Court room and then had an opportunity to watch the legislature in action.  While viewing the legislature they were recognized and acknowledge with applause by the senators.  They are pictured on the south side of the Capitol building.
