Please Help Save the Beecher Island Church

The Beecher Island Battleground Association would like to bulldoze it down and put in a playground area. 

There is a group trying to save it from destruction.



Article on Facebook page for The Wray Gazette


Karen Hanson Lindell and I talked to Betty Jeurink today about the church at Beecher Island and here is Karen's report:

I just spoke with Betty Jeurink. The plans are to fill in the basement as that does create health probems, and give it a "face life"--so to speak. They have been given an estimate of $56,0000 for the work. They are in contact with a person in Washington that works with boys in helping to rebuild buildings and they are in hopes this person will help also. The building was used last year at the Beecher Island ceremony to show quilts. If they can restore it, it can be used for other functions. So far they have pledges of about $35,000.00. and these have not been large pledges, just many people want to keep the church. She named some people (from Haigler) that have pledged among others---so if you are interested please give Betty a call 970-332-4237 for more information and if possible, a pledge. I did. Otherwise, it will be torn down and replaced with a playground. This is church is not old enough to be historical as it was built in 1950. ( The Wray Gazette sent me Carol Chapman's # also---970-332-5553). Thank you. 

Dundy County-Stratton semifinal victory

March 6, 2014
The Dundy County-Stratton student section, donning Superman shirts before Friday’s semifinal matchup with Howells-Dodge, was fully prepared for Nicole Kent to do her best Clark Kent impression.

Kent scored 25 points and grabbed seven rebounds on her way to leading the No. 6 Tigers to a 58-48 victory and a berth in tomorrow's D-1 state championship.

Happy 98th Birthday to Beulah Oster

Once again is my aunt Beulah Oster's (Brown) birthday.  On March 12 she will be 98.  She lived in and around Haigler for many years.  She continues to be in good health and lives in her apartment by herself.  My goal is to have her receive as many cards as possible.  She loves to get mail and is still very sharp.  If you remember her or even if you don't, it would be nice of you to send her a card.  I know she would love it.  Thank you.
Marla Schafer (White)

Her address is:
Beulah Oster
