Celebrate the HISTORY of Odebolt several ways as you attend Odebolt’s Annual Creek Days on Saturday, June 20th. At 10:00 a.m. following the Pancake Breakfast, join us in the Rural Schools Museum’s backyard for a Presentation and Dedications of the newly finished Outdoor Classroom area and of the Statue placed nearby, which was donated by the Gronemeyer Family in memory of their parents.
At 10:30 a.m. you will be entertained and educated by Edu-tainer, Daryl Draper, in his historical re-enactment of J. Sterling Morton. Some of the notable facts about Mr. Morton are that he founded Arbor Day, he was the Secretary of Agriculture of the United States, and his family is of the Morton Salt Company. His life history will be presented “first hand” and includes lots of humor and audience involvement. Mr. Draper will be soon retiring, so be sure to capture one of his final, always crowd-leasing, performances. All of this is provided free of charge and sponsored by the Rural Legacy Project-City of Odebolt.
A tented area and some chair seating will be provided, but you may want to bring along your lawn chairs or blankets, just in case. Should the weather not cooperate, these activities will be held in the First Presbyterian church Sanctuary. This will be a fun time for folks of all ages, children and adults, to reinforce some of the historical time period in which our town grew up.
