are welcome at the Exeter Aquatic Center on Monday Wednesday and Friday from
5:30 - 6:30 p.m. for an adults only swim.
Swimmers from Exeter and Milligan braved the chilly morning waters at the Exeter Aquatic Center for Level 5 and 6 lessons weekday mornings at 8 a.m. One of the last days of their lessons the swimmers had to come dressed in jeans and long sleeves shirts and jump in fully clothed. With their swim suits underneath the students had to practice treading water and remove their outer clothes simulating an accidental water entry. Then, they used their long pants and shirts to make a flotation device.
Tara Mueller was the first brave swimmer to jump in with her clothes on Thursday morning at the Level 5 and 6 swim lessons. The other swimmers watching her were Jacy Schlueter, Mitchell Manning, Instructor Alex Shaner, Blake Stueben, Instructor Madeline Baltzer, Joey Bartu and Patrick Murphy.
On the weekend of July 8-10, the Exeter 14U girls softball team participated in the ASA Class C State Softball Tournament. The tournament was held at the Smith Complex in Hastings.
The girls finished the tournament with a record of 7 and 1. They came home with the Class C State Championship.
Members of the team were: Lucy Murphy, Tara Mueller, Sam Horne, Hailey Luzum, Lindsey Stoldorf, Sierra Christiansen, Marissa Howard, Madison Horne, Maitlyn Thomsen, Erica Yound Haylee Sheffield, Katie Skinner and Janey Due. They were coached by Taylor Erdkamp, Bob Ruhl and Kelsey Moore.
Frances Becwar never imagined that a conversation at coffee one morning would help to fulfill an item on her bucket list, riding a motorcycle. Around her 85th birthday she fulfilled that bucket list item riding on the back of John Mueller’s touring motorcycle.

Exeter Cub Scouts enjoyed playing and calling Bingo recently at the Exeter Care Center. Three scouts, Braden Capek, Clint Oldehoeft and Ben Bartu participated in the event. The boys enjoyed taking turns calling the Bingo numbers and passing out snacks to the residents.
