History was reenacted this past week along the Chisholm Trail and will culminate later this week up near Wichita, to commemorate it's origins some 150 years ago. A cattle drive that began in Oklahoma about a week ago spent Tuesday night near Wellington Lake and pulled out of there late Wednesday morning and headed up the Chisholm Trail towards Mayfield.
Parents and students converged on Wellington High School Tuesday morning and evening for one-stop enrolling for their students in the USD 353 district. Patrons were also able to pick up their Casino Reward Cards.
South Woods Park was the place to be Saturday afternoon if you were cruising about our fine south central Kansas community. "9" teams squared off in the annual "Slate Creek Depot Great Race" with participants from "7" different states according to the race's founder and director Mr. Jack Potucek. The skies were cloudy and for late July, seasonably cool with the thermometer reading 88 as the race began.
The 28th GREAT RACE RELAY took place Saturday afternoon (072118) at South Woods Park and points beyond. "8" teams participated in the "13" event relay which includes motocross, horseback, bicycles, canoes, long and short distance running. Each team carries a colored railroad spike from start to finish - if you don't cross the finish line with it, you don't win! Jack Potucek has been the Racemaster for all 28 races, dating back to 1977.
