This tenth annual nationwide program will offer "Seeking a New Commitment to an Unfinished Task," is the motif behind the Mission Festival In Milwaukee, Wisconsin, going on this week, A number of students from M-OC are attending. The festival is in progress from October 6 through the ninth. Each day an exciting challenge Is brought out. On Wednesday evening the gathering saw a multi -media presentation of *. world crying out for help, under that day's theme "Awareness." "Confrontation" is the subject for Thursday's activities. Northwestern's Choral Readers will give a Mission in Drama that evening. On Friday, "Confrontation and Chs'lenge" is the theme. Outstanding speakers will be delivering the messages to the groups and there will be mission through music and arts, and mission and dialogue. Groups of 12-15 will be meeting several times throughout the festival. It promises to be a tremendous experience and to really fire up these young people attending for Christ. Summer Ventures Do something neat this summer? Many kids did. Here are some people who had extraordinary summer vacations. Ellen Vlleger flew to California to visit relatives for three weeks. She saw many famous sites out there and of two tests which they have taken. Eight Sioux County students have taken the test: — — •---"- .. ,„ -.-I. the first being objective and a $1,000 scholarsdp to each ^ ^^ was ^ essay exam . L to R, J.V. Cheerleaders, Cindy Ruisch, Pam Clark, Mary Brunk, Patti Schoep, Wanda De Haan, and Diane Strand. delegate of the 50 states. The United States Youth Program was created for outstanding high school students to help broaden their knowledge and understanding of Congress and the legislative process in our nation's capitol; to demonstrate the Importance of a freely elected legislature in the perpetuation of an effective democratic system of government; and to dramatize in particular the crucial role the Senate performs in the maintenance of U.S. Government. The program is sponsored by the William Randolph .Hearst Foundation. The two students from Iowa will be picked by the results It was unusual for M-OC students to come to school on Saturday, but trying to outdo the other classes In hall decorations was more Important than sleep. The theme for Homecoming this year was "We Can Make It If We Try." This was also Hie Senior's hall theme. The Junior theme was "Dutchman Superstar." The Sophomore's hall was the "Hall of Fame." The Freshmen theme was "Send the Rockets' to the Moon." On Wednesday, September 28, the halls were judged and the decision was announced. As everyone expected, the Seniors won. spent a lot of her time on the beach. She came back looking bleached and brown. When asked how her trip was she replied, "I had a great time!" Twlla Vander Meide went to Texas with her mother this summer to see her brother. She also did some sight-seeing and had a very enjoyable time. Dorenda Kleinhesselink and her parents drove to New Mexico for her vacation, "I had fun," she says " and I brought back some nice souveniers." Barb Janssen had an interesting summer too. For two weeks she was a Bible School teacher for some South Dakota Indians. She spent her time teaching kindergartners in the village of Cherry Creek on the Cheyenne Indian Reservation. "The Sioux Indians really enjoyed the Lutheran school teachers that came down," she said. "We lived right in the village and thus had close contact and living experiences with them. It was really different. There were nine of us at my camp, and I'm sure we all learned something different." Deb Bogaard also had a busy summer. First she went to the All-State Music Camp at Brookings for one week, and then on to 4-H Camp. Soon after, she returned, to become the 1971-72, 4-H fair queen of Sioux County. For more queen opportunities, she went to the State Fair Queen competition. Two seniors worked at Squaw Point Resort in Hillman, Minnesota, this summer. L to R, Roma Rowenhorst, sophomore, Ann Doornlnk, freshman, Diane Simonsen, senior, and Barb Krommendyk, junior. They were Linda Berry and LaVonne Kosters. The girls worked mainly as waitresses, but also did other types of odd jobs. Linda and LaVonne commented that the work was hard, but that they had loads of fun. It was a great experience for them since they got to meet so many people. These girls worked in Minnesota all summer, returning a day before school opened. I'm sure all band members can remember the great time we had in Indiana. All the excitement of the bus ride and especially the "Indy 500", added up to be a really great band vacation. One thing I know all the kids want to thank Mr. and Mrs. Krueger for, the great feast and welcome we received at Mrs. Krueger's sister's house. That was really fantastic! Thanks again for an unforgetable trip. After spending two weeks at home, Mr. Ludens and family took off-for Greely, Colorado. It was here that Mr. Ludens got his Master's Degree in Chemistry. For ten weeks the Ludens lived in a thirteen story apartment building on the campus of the University of Northern Colorado. That was quite a change from his big roomy home here In town. Mr. Ludens spent most of his time studying the courses he took to fill a half- regular load, and in preparation for four-three hour tests. He said that he found it to be a very interesting experience. Jim Rowenhorst really got around this summer. First he worked at the Young Life Camp in Colorado during the month of June. There he met some boys from Florida and they all decided to go to Palo Alto, California, for about a month. While he was on his way home he decided to stop off and spend a week at Denver, Colorado, with his sister. As his traveling came to a close, Jim found himself at his own home once more. I'm sure he had a very memorable as well as Interesting summer too. I'm sure every one of you had something exciting happen to you this summer, and we all wish you the best of luck in the summers to come.
