Members of the Spirit of Faith congregation joined together on Thursday, July 16, to tackle a landscaping project. This last summer, a landscaping plan was designed and plants were put in place. As a next step in the process, the group came together to put fabric down and get the rock in place. It was a hot, humid afternoon but the volunteers worked together and the work was completed in two hours.  Pastor John Anderson closed the day with a prayer of appreciation. Future plans include adding a large cross to the east end of the building.

Over the weekend, some local families traveled to Renner for the Sioux Valley Cycle Club’s Harescramble. The races were long and exhausting, but worth the time for the boys. 

Brayden Eagle raced to first place in the two-hour 250A class, which earned him some cash to bring home. His younger brother, Dayton Eagle, also got first place in the 65 race, and he earned second in the one-hour 85 race. Ethan Schmiedt wasn’t far behind him as he came in third for the 85. McCoy Schulz also raced in the 85.

Evan VonEye placed second in the 250B class in his first two-hour race. Jared LaVine is still on the injured list but loves going to the races and will be back on the track as soon as he can be.

The past weekend found Mason Moody and Madi Moody both competing at the Eastern Dakota 4-H Rodeo in Watertown. The Moodys have been busy already competing and preparing for competition, as their mother, Tracy, informed the Journal that Mason actually qualified and competed in the State High School Rodeo Finals earlier; however, this is their first 4-H rodeo competition for this year.

Their results for the rodeo in Watertown over the weekend are, on Saturday, Mason placed second in team roping. On Sunday, Mason placed fifth in team roping, and Madi placed second in goat tying, third in pole bending and seventh in barrel racing. 

According to Tracy, it is very exciting to have Madi able to compete in the goat tying competition again after she had to sit out last year due to a knee injury. Also, stay tuned for future results as the Moodys continue to compete this summer, and Mason will start bull riding next week.

Other local kids who also participated in the Eastern Dakota 4-H Rodeo in Watertown were Hudson Fouberg, Ramsey Fouberg, Layton Zoss and Landree Zoss, all from Sanborn Central and Tanner Christian from Woonsocket. No placings were reported for these students, but Hudson Fouberg was voted Miss Congeniality in the Jr. Queen Contest for the weekend’s event.
