Throwback Thursday, June 29, 2011




The Exeter Public Library recently purchased a new desktop computer for the use of it's patrons. 

The Library Board had been researching a new computer system for patron use and when the old one stopped working they sped up the process for purchasing a new internet computer.

The new computer will be purchased with memorial funds that were given to the library without designations


Trystan Brandt, son of Roger and Dianne Brandt of Exeter, received second place in the 200m dash and third place in the 100 m dash for the 11-12 year old division at the Hershey Track and Field State Finals held at Grand Island on June 11.  He qualified to attend the meet after receiving first place in the 100m dash and second place in the 200m dash at the District meet held at York in May. Trystan will be a seventh grader at Exeter-Milligan in the fall.


Exeter Cub Scouts have filled their empty summer days with lots of fun activities and service projects the last few weeks.

Several of the scouts volunteered for Bingo at the Exeter Care Center and also helped lead a Flag Day program at the Care Center.  They put flags up in downtown Exeter for Flag Day as well.

During the week the scouts met for an afternoon session at the library and learned from Assistant Librarian Jessica Votipka how the library is organized.  They explored the library's computer check out system and also looked up a book using the Dewey Decimal System. 

While they were at the library they helped with a recycling project and did a little clean up at Storybook Park.

The weekend found the pack headed for a campout at Lone Star NRD facility.  The scouts played flag football, made father's day gifts and pool noodle swords before they cooked hot dogs for supper.

Cub Scouts from Friend and Exeter enjoyed a day living like Tom Sawyer at the Crete Youth Cabin near Crete.

The boys got to hike along the Blue River, make rafts like Tom Sawyer used and race them, and make their own jump rope.

Richard Brunkow, of Milligan, brought his rope making equipment and each of the boys got to make a 12 foot piece of rope.  The boys enjoyed lassoing tree branches and other objects throughout the camp.

The scouts started their Leave No Trace badge and practiced picking up the trash and sticks in the camp before leaving.
