Throwback THursay 06/17/2012

 

06/17/2012

It seems that Exeter weather is either flood or drought this year.  Wednesday evening thunderstorms cancelled baseball games and brought between 3 1/2 to 5 inches of rain to the area.

Exeter Public Library has begun their summer reading program “Dream Big Read.”  The program meets on Fridays during June for Kindergarten through third graders.  There was a special preschool program on Friday, June 15th.  Participants have been reading books, doing crafts and playing games at each session.  At the end of the meeting they can check out books and movies.  

Exeter Pack 218 scouts were guests of the Advanced Bio Energy Ethanol Plant on Wednesday morning.  Plant Maintenance Supervisor Dan Mainwaring showed the scouts the entire cabinet of plans that were used to build the plant and shared with them some plans for a tank that was added recently.  After showing them the plans Mainwaring showed the boys the tank that was built and how the tank matched up to the plans explaining the importance of plans and following the designers specifications.  Mainwaring also talked about different types of engineers and their different roles in building our country.  The Webelos scouts in the pack were working on their Engineering pin.

Scouts attending were Clint Oldehoeft, Blake Meyer, Joey Bartu, Mikey Bartu, Josh Meyer, Jackson Beethe and Ben Bartu. 

Area residents will have the chance to find out whether their children are as safe as possible in their child safety seats during an upcoming FREE check-up event.

This event is a FREE opportunity to have trained technicians determine if a child is riding as safely as possible or if changes in positioning or seat use could help them to be safer. Those who are planning to have seats checked are asked to allow about 30 minutes per child safety seat.
