Ricketts' egg hunt growing since last year

Ricketts had 19 kids and two babies attend their Easter egg hunt this year, Saturday, April 11. Last year, only eleven children had attended, so the Ricketts Community Club was very encouraged by the turn out. Each child was able to hunt for three bags of candy filled plastic easter eggs hidden around the playground and under the water tower. Then, they were treated to cookies inside the Ricketts Community Center.

Send me your news tips!

It's that time of year again. I'm talking with Brad Swenson, the Publisher of the Mapleton PRESS about how I can help as a community correspondent for the Charter Oak and Ricketts areas. You can help. Have you got any ideas for feature stories or personality interviews? Have you got an even on your calendar that you'd like me to cover or at least get some pictures of? Please send me an email and let me know

Remember that Charter Oak Achievement Days are coming up July 12-15. The PRESS is planning on runing their annual special edition July 23. Why not show your support by advertising in the Achievement Days Edition? Give me a call, or call the PRESS office and reserve your space today!

Brad tells me that they've got Joleen Schultz signed on to help cover our area too- especially once I go back to school next Fall. When in doubt, call Michelle Kane at the office in Mapleton :

Phone 712-881-1101
Fax 712 881 1330

While you're at it- you might have noticed that there hasn't been much new on this blog for a while. Some of that has had to do with how busy I've been- but a lot of it is because no one has sent me any news, stories, memories or pictures to post. This blog is Ricketts' very own news source. Please take advantage of it by sending me your ideas. Make it YOUR community website.
