Pancakes for Supper? Yes, Please!

    In a twist from their annual Fall pancake breakfast, the Danbury Fire Department held their pancake breakfast for supper on Saturday. The department had some obstacles to keep the crowd a little lighter than hoped (large wedding in Sioux City which included many from the area, turkey supper fundraiser in Battle Creek, farmers working hard to try to beat the snow which threatened to thwart the harvest, etc). However, they still flipped flapjacks and scrambled eggs for their patrons and sent them home with full bellies.

Middle School Fall Concert Honors Veterans

    The MVAO Middle School held their annual Fall concert a little later than previous years. This later date put it on Veterans Day, and the music department embraced the opportunity to honor veterans.
    At the beginning of the concert, members of the McNiff Legion Post from Anthon presented the American and their post flag and gave a presentation of the history of their post. The sixth grade choir sang "Taps" while members of their chorus gave information about Veterans Day. Other students in the music department added tidbits throughout the evening.
    The program ended with the inclusion of all family and friends who have served in the Armed Forces. The seventh/eighth grade band played the Star Spangled Banner while all showed their patriotism.
    Above, members of the McNiff Legion Post salute the flag with audience members behind them showing their respect. On the risers are members of the seventh/eighth grade choir along with Mrs. Crista Else also show their allegiance.
