INMAN – Officials with Pleasant View Home (PVH), in Inman, decided to move up the date for the facility’s major fundraising event, Gift Day.

Regularly held in early November, Gift Day will be held Friday, Oct. 20.

“It will free up people’s schedules as they are busy preparing for the holidays,” Cate McClelland, marketing director for Pleasant View, said. “It will give people more time to spend with their families as they await the holidays.”

In addition, Gift Days had been on a Thursday, but it will be on a Friday. McClelland said it might increase interest in the event.

MOUNDRIGE – Al Vogts, owner of Vogts Construction, presented the USD 423 Board of Education, with numbers his workers were able to gather as they looked to replace and upgrade critically needed items for the three buildings the school district owns.

Vogts and his Senior Project Manager, Daniel Toothman, gave the information to board members during their meeting Monday, Oct. 9, at the boardroom.

Voters in the Moundridge School District have twice rejected bond issues the district had proposed. Earlier in the year, district officials developed a critical needs list for each building and had construction managers from Nabholz Construction determine a price for each item.

Opponents of the bonds encouraged Superintendent George Leary to talk with Vogts, a developer who grew up in Moundridge and now resides in North Newton.
