Boosters help support many extracurriculars

Dear Editor,

The Oregon Hawk Boosters are an awesome organization that supports extra-curricular activities in theOregon School District.

In the past years we have sponsored the Red & White Spirit Night, Pack the Place events and volunteered at many others.

We are able to support the teams and their athletes by the fund raising that takes place at the Red & White Night and by all of the volunteers that donate their time.  

The Booster club now needs your support. There are Board positions open and members are needed.

If you are interested in being part of this great organization please attend the next meeting to be held on Wednesday, Jan. 8, at 7 p.m. in the OHS library.

Excited with Stillman's title

Dear Editor,

The Stillman Valley Cardinals just won their fifth state championship, including one second place finish.
Personally, I was just as excited and proud of this one as I was the first one in 1999.

Coach Mike Lalor, fellow coaches and 2013 Stillman Valley Cardinals, thank you for yet another exciting football season!

I’m proud to say that I’ve only missed a handful of games since 1970.

Coach Lalor has won 159 games at Stillman Valley since becoming head coach in 1998.

His goal has always been to build a program that we could be proud of. That goal, indeed has been met.

Thanks again Stillman Valley Cardinals, and coaches!

Thank you for helping with annual dinner

Dear Editor,

I would like to thank all the wonderful people who helped make the 5th annual St. Mary’s Thanksgiving Day dinner a success.

Your generosity with your time and contributions allowed us to serve 167 Thanksgiving Day meals to many who had no place to go and, for some, no food to eat.  

The sense of community present that day was of great benefit to people who otherwise would have spent the day alone. 

Special thanks goes to those from Oregon Living and Rehabilitation Center and several area churches who worked together in this charitable outreach.

With gratitude,

Deacon John Ley

Wrestling season has arrived in Polo

Dear Editor,

Wrestling season has arrived in the county and our young athletes are anticipating a great year.
Polo hosted a Meet The Marcos night recently and families got to watch their kids in action.

One of the most skilled match ups was senior Jeff Kimpel and sophomore Ethan Cain. These two guys are both powerhouses and bring lots of experience to the team. 

It was encouraging to hear them positively coach their teammates, especially the new freshmen.

Kimpel pinned Cain in the match after they exhibited smooth wrestling moves and some acrobatics as well.

Coach Zigler is an experienced coach, who provides great leadership. We look forward to an exciting season.

Good luck to the wrestlers of the Polo and Forreston co-op team.
