4th of July Celebration
Nazareth Community celebrated the 4th of July Independence Day for the USA with a ballpark blowout for families and friends, hosted by the Catholic Order of Nazareth Foresters. Games for the kids, family sharing over hot-dogs and chips, followed by a Fireworks display, brought nearly a hundred area residents together in the Nazareth Ballpark. Many decked out in patriotic red, white, and blue, thanked the CONF-rers for the fun time.
Growth and Prosperity
Greg and Karen Schulte are helping Nazareth continue to move forward with new businesses that show our care for tourism and serving family events such as weddings, anniversaries, and reunions. They recently opened G&K RV Park located next to the baseball field. It has eight RV hookups; this includes water, electricity, and gas. The park is convenient for people from out of town attending German Fest, but it will be open year-round. Greg and Karen hope to also build a washroom addition to the RV park here in Nazareth for the future. Greg and Karen invite your inquiries about possible bookings for the future by calling 806-627-7858.
Leadership camp participants described the experience at Clarendon College as unforgettable this year. Six Nazareth high school students including Payton Robb, Aubrie Durbin, Kamber Higgins, Alicia Straley, Roxanne Wilhelm, and FFA area officer, Mason Kleman attended. The camp was held on June 24th – 26th. The students visited the elderly in the nursing home and the Goodnight Museum in Clarendon and listened to speakers. There was also a dance Tuesday and Wednesday night.
There were different workshops run by officers. Each officer taught a moral lesson that went along with an activity. For example, students played tug-o-war at Mason’s workshop. Each time a team won, a person from that team was eliminated. The moral of the story was that each person makes a difference.
Students got active during “Agtastic.” “Agtastic” was different competitions and fun activities such as a slip n’ slide, an obstacle course, and an egg toss. The students were split up and competed with their assigned group. “It was a memorable experience because I met a lot of new friends that I will keep in touch with,” senior Payton Robb said.
