1971: Five-sided bench is installed at rink

Posted in:

Jan. 27, 1971

HARTINGTON-Lest anyone wonder whether the five-sided bench around the skating rink tree was slipped on from above or below, we have proof they cheated.

One side of the five-sided bench was taken off and the whole works was slid into place. The bench was constructed by the local FFA and Vocational Ag students, under the supervision of Larry Shavlik.

Students from both high schools worked on the bench. The materials were purchased by the Booster Club and Nebraska Public Power wired up some lights for the tree.

Jan. 1971

HARTINGTON-While paint up, fix up projects are definitely good, community representatives were told Tuesday night that, “we’re trying to stress goals which go beyond that type of project.”

The 50 representatives of a dozen area communities that participated in the Community Improvement workshop at the Hartington Country Club were given a number of suggestions for community improvement which did indeed go beyond the “clean up, fix up” stage.

The first broad area covered at the workshop included a process for community development.

The outline included eight basic steps suggested by the Nebraska Division of Community Affairs. The process is built around the idea of getting a broad base of community involvement at the planning stage.
