Throwback Thursday 07/22/2012


Exeter celebrate their annual Fun Days starting Friday and Saturday.


Head to John E’s in downtown Exeter for col drinks and karaoke from 9 to close.


Saturday morning starts with a Car and Bike Show in downtown Exeter in front of John E’s from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.  Fun and games for the kids with lots of prizes start downtown inside the street dance area from 10 – 11:30 a.m.  Tickets  (2 for $1.00) will be available for the games which include plinko, bug toss, ring toss and duck pond downtown inside the street dance area.  This event is also sponsored by the Exeter Chamber of Commerce.  The Village of Exeter will be sponsoring free swimming at the Exeter Aquatic Center all afternoon.


The evening entertainment and food starts at 5 p.m. at the Exeter Volunteer Fire Department BBQ and Street Dance featuring two live acts.  Local favorites Rusty Nichol will open the evening playing live from 5 – 9 with Timmery and Joe taking over the stage at 9 and playing until 1.


It’s something she never imagined doing, but Agnes Loukota is crocheting like crazy.


This 1957 graduate of Exeter High School recently celebrated her 55th High school reunion, but don’t think this great-grandmother is slowing down.


In 2006 she launched on a new project.  She noticed that the Exeter G.F.W.C. Woman’s Club had put an ad in the Exeter Care Center newsletter looking for people to crochet hats for a project they were working on. “I went online, found the pattern and started making them,” explained Loukota.


Even after the Woman’s club completed their project Loukota continued to crochet the hats, which the American Cancer Society calls Head Huggers on their website where they offer the pattern.

With over 500 hats crocheted Loukota isn’t slowing down at all.  In fact, she has recruited more help in Exeter to crochet the hats. Exeter resident and Librarian Nina Bartu is also helping Loukota.  

The Fillmore County Relay for Life will be held Saturday July 28th
