On Friday, May 31, 14 4-H members from Aurora and Sanborn counties accompanied Audra Scheel on a Mystery Trip. Leaving at 8 in the morning, these youth had no idea where they were headed and their guesses throughout the day even included a fishing trip after they turned toward Lake Norden.
The first stop was at the Davisco Cheese Factory in Lake Norden. This tour took the group through the mozzarella cheese making process, from the milk being unloaded to the end where the cheese was being boxed and packaged. Every day 3,000,000 lbs. of milk is processed into 300,000 lbs. of cheese.
Lunch was at the “Bull Pen” in Lake Norden and then went next door to the Amateur Baseball Hall of Fame. It was interesting to see how many local people are in the Hall of Fame.
From there we headed to Brookings, where the Mystery Trip took us to the SDSU Wellness Center, which was recently constructed in 2008. It was there 4-Hers got to climb the rock wall! This was a huge hit as none of them had ever tried this experience. We had some great climbers. Every one of us made an attempt, even those of us who are scared of heights!
After two hours of climbing the rock wall, the group then went over to the SDSU Dairy building where we received a tour of the facilities. We saw where they make the ice cream and cheese, cooled off in their big freezer, and indulged in a well deserved treat of SDSU ice cream.
The Mystery Trip was sponsored by a mini-grant received from the South Dakota 4-H Leaders.
