The Hansons had just' arrived in Coon Rapids when her nearest neighbor, Mrs. H. A. Riis, and Mrs. Dale Carpenter called with a lunch and hot coffee^ for the newcomers. Mrs. Hanson said many similar neighborly and friendly acts have continued ever since their. arrival herg. Many Invitations She remarKed they . had never encountered so many invitations U> teachers' receptions as they have here. The Coon Rapids Federated Woman's Club has invited all the teachers and , teachers' wives to,be guests at the annual fall dinner on September 16, which is the opening, meeting of the new club year. This club, which has a membership of about 125, cooper- \ ates with several other clubs of .1 the community in sponsoring a! teachers' reception at 'the schoolhouse each year. On Sunday, Sept. 15, the teachers' families are all invited to a chicken dinner and social after-! noon at the Star Methodist] Church which is six miles north- j east of town. Then, on October 3, j they are ail invited to a family night at the -First M e t h o d i s,t Church in town. The Christian Church, too, has a .special occasion in their honor each year, New Superintendent Mrs. Hanson is the wife of Ellis G. Hanson, new superintendent of the Coon Rapids Community School, who arrived here June 19 from Kamrar, where he had been superintendent for three years. Previous to that, he had been at Mallard for six years, where he started as a commercial teacher and then was high school principal for three years. He is a graduate of Iowa State Teachers College at Cedar Falls and has a master's degree in school administration from Colorado State College at Greeley, Colo. He has put in two summer's work on his doctor's degree. While in the service, Mr. Hanson was an ensign in the United States Navy. It was at Mallard that Mr. Hanson met Mrs. Hanson, then Lanis Nicewanger of Climbing Hill, who taught fourth grade at Mallard for two years. She is a graduate of Nebraska State Teachers College at Wayne, Neb. With such an unusual maiden name, it's not surprising she acquired a nickname during her school years. She agrees that "Jo" Hanson is much shorter and easier to pronounce. With her teaching experience, she should know the answers to the numerous questions children ask. The Hansons have two children, Kathy Jo, who is 5 "A, and Eric, who is 16 months old. Both children have sparkling dark Timet Herald, Carroll, la. Monday, Sept. 16, 19S7 brown eyes, expressive of their happy dispositions. Kathy is quite | thrilled at beginning her school 1 experiences, as she entered the morning kindergarten class, taught by Mrs. William Bote, on September 10. j Mrs. Hanson can keep her eye i on Kathy from the time she leaves home until she enters the schoolhouse door, as they live just across the street west, above the new grade school building. This is also a convenient location for Mr. Hanson, as it is only a half block north of the high school building. The family will enjoy the view from their front door, as it faces the wooded hillside at the east edge of Coon Rapids and the tt ees will soon be changing to their brilliant autumn colors. « '> Methodist* The Hansons haven't lived in Coon Rapids long enough to become involved with the many social clubs here, but they have recently transferred their membership to First Methodist Church. Mrs. Hanson is a member of the O.E.S. and Mr. Hanson of the | Masonic Lodge. Mrs. Hanson is a woman of at: tractive appearance and gracious : quiet dignity. She says she is a ! very ordinary housewife with no | special hobbies. She enjoys sewing, but claims to be strictly an I amateur at it. It is understandable : that with small youngsters she I has trouble finding time for it. i Both Mr. and Mrs. Hanson en! joy music and play the piano for 1 their own amusement, although ! they sold their piano before they ! moved. They both enjoy swimming and are enthusiastic about water skiing. They eftjoy the out- of-doors and are fond of barbecued meals. She says she relies a great deal on one-dish casseroles to be served with a salad and a dessert. She included the recipe for an unusual one, Lasagne, in her favorite recipes. •<•Lasagne 1 lb. hamburger, brown and add 1 can tomato soup 1 can onion soup 1 can of tomato paste Cook 1 pkg.
