Tyler Tribute - Page 10 Ruthton News Wednesday, March 27, 2013 uffal Ridg ........... News from the cities of Ruthton and Holland and from Pipestone County Holland Legion birthday supper postponed to April 9 Due to the unfavorable weather Tuesday morning of March 12, the Holland Legion Post and Auxiliary Unit&apos; members decided to postpone the Legion's birthday ham supper to April 9 at 6:30 p.m. Barb Lux of Sleepy Eye visited at the home of her mother Leone Frank last Wednesday. They also spent some time with Col Frank at the Pipestone Medical Center. Lou Brouwer and Alvina Vender Sluis visited with Hank and LaVon Bouman at Sunrise Manor in Tyler one afternoon last week. They were both doing well that day. Gladys Lingen was taken to Avera McKennan Medi- cal Center this past Friday morning. We wish her a healthy recovery. Last Thursday I volun- teered to sell daffodils at Coborn's store for two hours. It was enjoyable as I was able to chat with the folks who were shop- ping for groceries. The time went fast and I was doing a good deed for the American Cancer Society. It seems as if every family has been touched by the ravishes of cancer. Saturday afternoon I at- tended the birthday party for Pat Beyers, who turned 80 this past week. It was :just great to visit with Scott Holland News By Rosie McGinty and Cheryl. The Beyers' kids were schoolmates of my kids here in Holland. I don't think I've seen Cheryl since she graduated from Pipestone High School. Pat was decked out in her Irish finery as she was also the Grand Marshal for Pip- estone's 20th Annual St. Patrick's Day Parade. That evening I joined Perdita Douty, Gloria Shaf- fer, Carol Gilmore and Helen Perkins at the Pip- estone American Legion Hall where we enjoyed the delicious corned beef, cooked cabbage, carrots and potato supper. The Lake Benton Country House does a great job in preparing the meal, which they have done for a num- ber of years. Saturday afternoon I happened to look out my north window of the util- ity room and there was a robin hopping in the snow. It kept right on hopping until it got to the cat's dish so it could feed on the dry cat food. I don't know if the robin is back or if it stayed all winter in the evergreen trees. The bluejays also feed from the cat dish and they stick around in the trees all winter. The county card party will be at the Holland Se- nior Center on Tuesday, March 26 with card play- ing starting at 1:30 p.m. Come and enjoy an after- noon of fellowship. Saturday I had a call from Margaret Miner of Coon Rapids. She in- formed me that Delores Gacke of Ivanhoe is now making her home in Sioux Falls, S.D. Delores and I were classmates at Ruth- ton High School. Delores will be closer to her son and daughter, who live in the area, and I was happy to learn she had relocated. She also has a birthday soon on April 9. Sunday dinner guests at the home of Colleen Bents at Rushmore were Mary and Larrie DeGroot, Roger and Diane Vande Kieff, Suzanne Murphy of Worthington and myself. Afternoon callers were Canon and Mary Mueller of Rushmore. We helped Chloe Bents celebrate her 1 lth birthday a week early as she will be in New York when her sister Quinn sings with the Worthing- ton High School Choir in St. John's Cathedral the week of the 25th, which is her birthday. RN to BSN program applications being accepted Applications for the new RN to BSN degree pro- gram at Southwest Minne- sota State University will be evaluated during the month of March, said Jane Wrede, Director of Nurs- ing. "First, someone inter- ested in the program must be admitted to the univer- sity," she said. "Once they are admitted, we will eval- uate applications into the RN to BSN program during the month of March." The RN to BSN degree makes its debut in the fall of 2013. A cohort of be- tween 25-30 nurses will be accepted into the program each fall and spring semes- ter, she said. Students will enter the program with at least a two-year nursing degree and will take 60 ad- ditional credits-- 30 nurs- ing credits and 30 liberal arts credits. The Institute of Medi- cine has recommended that 80 percent of nurses have a BSN degree by the year 2020, said Wrede. "In southwest Minnesota, that number is about 30 per- cent," she said. "We antici- pate the degree will be in high demand because the program is designed for the working nurse. People are busy raising families and working in the health profession and they don't have an opportunity to travel." The RN to BSN program will be delivered, primer- !!
