Grell, Jensen Receive Monona County Royalty Sashes

    The Monona County Fair was held last week.
    The event kicked off the crowning of the new royalty. Amanda Grell, daughter of Anna and Jamey Grell of Danbury was among the candidates vying for the queen's crown. She was close, earning first runner up. Amanda is the granddaughter of Yvonne and the late Butch Grell of Danbury and the late Bernice and Wilmer Knutson Jr. of Soldier.
    In the Little Miss division, Haley Jensen, daughter of Sheri and David Jensen of Castana was chosen as Little Miss Congeniality. Haley is the granddaughter of Pat and the late Lynn Boyle of Danbury and Jim and the late Wanda Jensen of Onawa.

UMW To Cook Breakfast Sunday

    This weekend will find many former Danbury Catholic and Danbury Public School kids wandering Danbury. Events in town will focus on the DCHS and DHS graduates. But not all events will be strictly for the alumni.
    On Sunday, July 22nd from 8:00-11:30 the United Methodist Church parishioners will serve breakfast consisting of breakfast casserole, fruit cup, coffee cake and rolls all for the bargain price of $8.00. This will be held in the basement of the Danbury United Methodist Church.
    The breakfast is open to everyone, including reunion attendees. The breakfast will give people a way to start the day with a good meal and also give people a place to visit one last time, possibly, before they depart for their homes across the nation.
    Please consider njoying their wonderful breakfast.

If You Build It, They Will Come

    No, it's not a ball diamond which will bring people together. Rather, it's playground equipment which will bring children laughing and playing at Danbury Catholic in August.
    Generous donations from businesses, school families, and community members allowed Danbury Catholic to purchase new playground equipment which makes their other playground set look quite minimal. When finished, hopefully by the weekend, a friendship swing, pod climber, topsy turner spinner and other fun features will join the slides and swings and bridges at the school.
    On Friday, around 20 people along with a representative from Outdoor Recreation Products worked hard to try to beat the nearly inch of rain that fell late morning which turned the playground into a water pad. For the most part, they were relatively successful; one more day of work should finish the project.
