10-Algona la.) Upper De* MoinM Thursday, July 6, 1967 • •^••••^•^••••••••iHI WHAT ARE THEY DOING? BY STEVE WALLER Linda Seller likes meeting people and serving the public. She does both while earning educational money at Hank's Dairy Creme, where she has been employed for two years. A 19G7 graduate of Garrigan High School, Linda is the hardworking daughter of the Julius Sellers of .the St. Benedict area. She has three brothers, Jerry, Mike and Henry, and a sister, Marilyn. While working in Algona, she stays with her grandmother, Mrs. Mary Seller. Miss Seller DOES meet people. Many customers are travelers passing through Algona. Since she started working in April, I960, Linda has met people from just about every state in the land from California to New York. Truckers, campers and scores of tourists make for interesting conversations, though short the conversation must be. Because of the job, Linda has been able to help people in some small way and at the same time further her education. Another asset to Linda's summer job would have to be a crew of easy-to-work-with co- employees. These gals make it fun to be at work. Pat McGuire, Janet Cink, Connie Schultz,Mary Willrett, Barb Colwell and Mrs. Myrna Gregson, who helps out during the school year, are her •teammates.' "And, of course,' as Linda says, "Mr. and Mrs. Furst (owners) are great employers", which is another big reason for Linda's contentment on the job. With a rotating schedule which finds her on duty from either 10 to 5 or 5 to 1 , Linda keeps busy from start to finish.

She also spends some time filling the dispensers and mixing the tasty treat toppings which arrive weekly. At the start it was a little difficult. Linda had to master and memorize many different flavors, prices and sizes of goods. All in all, however, this learning process didn't throw Linda. She says one of the nicest things about her job is the customer's appreciation for a satisfy ing treat. There ARE times- about noon and three o'clock every day when Linda is "swamped" with work. These particular hours of the day are really fast and furious. The noon rush begins about 11:30 in the morning and carries well into the afternoon. Then Linda must prepare herself for another wave of "coffee- breakers" in the afternoon onslaught. She is kept hopping in these two sessions. When not at work, Linda likes to swim, sew, read and participate in, as well as observe, various sporting events. As for the future, our young employee plans on helping serve people in a different way. Linda would like to follow up a career in nursing after attending St. Antonian's School of Practical Nursing at Carroll. She will be there a year and hopes to eventually reach her goal as a registered nurse. Right now, you might not need Linda's services as a nurse, but when she prepares your order you can't help feeling a little better. (UDM Newsfoto) Allan K. Adams To Livermore Bank Position Allan K.
