Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope everyone is staying warm on these cold days. Hopefully this will be it for the cold snap and we can move on to warmer temperatures. I am so anxious for spring to get here, even though we really haven’t had too bad of a winter. With that a lot of things are being planned for fundraisers and events. The first one will be the Booster Club Banquet and that will be held of Wednesday March 17 at the community center. Everyone is welcome to attend! For Ticket information contact Dustin Houlton. Then on March 21 Ireton Christian School is putting on their 22nd annual Bluegrass Gospel Concert at the BJ Haan auditorium at Dordt University. The Anderegg Family & New Legacy will be performing at 2 different show times. 2:30 & 7:00 pm. Tickets are $15 . They can be purchased at the door or in advance from Ireton Christian School. On Saturday March 28, Ireton Bertram Post 276 will be sponsoring a Free will Donation fundraiser for Midwest Honor Flight. This is at the community center from 4-7 pm. They will be serving burgers, pork loin¬† & sides. Carry out will also be available. The storm date for that will be April 4. So we have a lot of community things going on that we can get out and socialize with.

Congratulations to the West Sioux Wrestling team! They will be heading to State on Wednesday Feb.19. Good Luck! What a great way to represent West Sioux! Also, Good Luck to the Girls and Boys basketball teams as they head into tournaments. Girls will start off next Tuesday Feb. 18 @ West Sioux against Boyden-Hull. Come out and support the girls if you can. The boys will begin their trek on Thursday Feb.20 @ West Sioux against the winner of Unity, Sioux Center. This should be a good match up also. So make plans to come out and support the boys as well, as both the boys and girls have had a great season! Something to be proud of.

If you are looking for something to do, on the 4th Friday of each month, Suzie Schuld is trying to get a game night started at the city office (North Side)from 7-9:30 pm. for any adult that likes to play cards or any board game or even just to come and socialize. Puzzles are also available. It will only cost .25 to come join in the fun! This will hopefully help to raise money for prizes for Bingo which if there is enough participation. Will hopefully start taking place. That is always fun too! And what a cheap night of fun and fellowship. Any questions on that contact Suzie Schuld

That’s about all the new activities that I can think of right now for our community.

Until next time!
