Exeter Girl Scout Troop 390 decided to bake up a storm on Thursday afternoon to help complete a badge that started with the power of one and helped them grow to learn about the power of a community.


The girls, fourth and fifth graders at Exeter-Milligan gathered on Thursday afternoon to make meals for families in town who have recently been affected by cancer.

Five Exeter Cub scouts chose to go to the Prairie Winds District Pinewood Derby event.  Clint Oldehoeft entered the stock race, Braden Capek showed his car in the modified show, Peytan Brandt entered the modified race, Ben Bartu showed in the modified show and Joey Bartu showed in the stock show.  Joey brought home a trophy for best in stock show for the second year in a row.


Two Exeter-Milligan seniors from the Girls Basketball team Heather Pribyl and Kelsey Moore were chosen to the First Team of the CRC All Conference Team. Exeter-Milligan Freshman Nolan White was the only member of the Boys Basketball Team to be recognized on the First Team.  Exeter-Milligan Senior Zach Jensen received an honorable mention.


On March 2nd, several FCCLA members sported t-shirts to support the "Spread the Word, to End the Word.  The purpose of this day was to raise an awareness for the useless use of the word "retarded" and the negative connotation associate with this word.  Many members previously attended the National Special Olympics and gained an understanding that mentally and physically challenged individuals do not like that label when talking about their ability.  Meredith Emshoff's FCCLA STAR project was the emphasis for this activity, as she brought an awareness for autistic individuals and the increased use of the word, retarded when identifying people with disabilities.  Through her project, the student body was made aware of the characteristics of someone with autism and that society is so fast to label people, even if it is with the incorrect word.
