Throwback Thursday



The largest crowd in a number of years headed to the Exeter Legion on Tuesday night to enjoy the Exeter Chamber of Commerce Pancake Feed.  The group fed close to 300 people in the annual event. Free pancakes, sausage and beverages were on the menu.


Phyllis Severson's Computer Applications students, Shelby Bell and Wyatt Clift, were each given an iPad and told, "Use the iMovie application to make a movie on the iPad.  Oh, and by the way you also have to teach yourself how to use the app."  Both students rose to the challenge with each making a 2 minute "movie" to share.  Next up for the class is to create their own song using the Garage Band Application for the iPad.


“Exercise and word search puzzles,” are two of the keys of long life according to Exeter resident Sylvia Reil Riley.  Riley turned 99 on Saturday and wasn’t planning anything special for her birthday.


Originally from Milford, Riley lived in Crete and Sutton before moving to Friend in 1958.  She has lived in Exeter the past few years.  She and her husband, who passed away in 1980, had five children, four are still living.

Exeter-Milligan Update: Kindergarten drums

Barrett White and Brecken Sluka work on their drums

Kindergarten Drums

By Amanda Pettygrove, Exeter-Milligan Kindergarten Teacher


Kindergarten just completed their CKLA Knowledge unit over Native Americans. During the unit, students studied how the Lakota Sioux relied on buffalo to give them what they need. Students learned that they not only got food from buffalo but also used them to create their shelters and drums. Students ended this Native American unit by creating their own drums.


Penelope Harrison leads the rest of the kindergarten class playing their drums. Also pictured are Baylor Johnson, (backs to camera L-R) Brecken Sluka, Barrett White, Emmett Schlegelmilch, and Weston Yound.
