Perkins County Schools students recite the Pledge of Allegiance daily.

Hatch’s Super Foods made the commitment to building a brand new grocery store in Grant. The new 10,800 square foot store would face south with windows on the west, constructed toward the north end of the lot. The old store would eventually come down, creating space for parking on the south side of where the new market would stand. The new market would be nearly twice the size.

The Plainsmen defeated Sutherland 27 to 0, in their first home football game. The boys looked great throughout the game, in comparison to the type of ball they played at Holyoke. The line made much improvement, and the backs did a very good job at running the ball back. At the end of the third quarter the second team was put in and came very close to scoring.
