Mikey Ride - 2013

Well it’s that time of year again Susie and I would like to invite everyone to the 2013 Mikey ride. For those who don’t ride we would like for you all to come and enjoy the evening with everyone. This year we will be working to assist a wonderful young lady and her young family. Jessica Smith Vapenik, a native of Wallace was just diagnosed with lymphoma. She and her husband ,Jon have two children ages 1 ½ and a newborn. Jessica twin sister Megan is who we all went together in the 2011 Mikey Ride to help they both have had their battle with lymphoma. Please come and show your support for this wonderful young lady.

Please make copies of the attached poster and get out to others as well as post where you think it would be seen.

Thank you, Mike and Susie Maupin

Services will be on Saturday, May 26, 2013 in St. Frances, KS at 2:00 PM at the Salem Lutheran Church.  Her obituary can be seen at:


Haigler Alumni, family, and friends are invited to "come home" to Haigler this coming Memorial/Alumni weekend, May 25-27.
Scheduled activities include a Saturday afternoon open house at the Haigler Legion Community Building from 2-5 p.m., hosted by the 50 year reunion class.  Plan to stop by and visit with friends and enjoy refreshments.

     Saturday evening is the Dundy County Alumni Banquet in Benkelman, and many will be attending this event.  Also on Saturday evening, there will be a dance in Haigler at the Legion--with former Haigler graduate LaVoine Smith and the Garage Bunch Band from Burlington, Colorado playing.

     On Sunday, May 26, the traditional 12 noon potluck luncheon will be held at the Haigler Legion Community Building.  Just bring some food.  Plates, utensils, and drinks are furnished.  There will be a short program following the luncheon.  After these events, there will be open house at the completed Haigler One-Room Country Schoolhouse Museum, and the developing Haigler Cornerstone Museum--and the Haigler Elementary School and gymnasium.  This was the last year for the Haigler School, and many alumni may want to tour the buildings before they are sold later this summer.  Alumni will be glad to know that many items from all the Haigler Schools through the years will be given to the Haigler Museums for display.

     On Monday morning at 10 a.m. at the Haigler Cemetery, a Memorial Day service will be held, with coffee and doughnuts afterwards at the Legion Building on Main Street.  We look forward to seeing you at these events in Haigler.
