Hennen shoots his first buck

 

 Evan Hennen, shown with the four-point buck he shot Sunday morning in the Pengilly area, was as proud as a peacock that evening when he got to show off the deer to his grandparents, Kathy and Daryl Hennen. The excited youngster told them they had to come out right away to see the deer which was hauled home on the top of his father, Brad’s, vehicle. 
According to Brad, Evan was in a stand with his uncle, Andy,  Sunday (Nov. 16) morning when he chose that stand because it had a heater in it. They spotted the deer about an hour later and Evan took a rifle  shot at about  80 yards across a swamp, hitting the deer in the heart. This was the first deer for Evan in his first year of hunting. He is the son of Christy and Brad Hennen.

Jude Hall gets a make-over


John Northenscold Jr., scoutmaster of Troop 219, and Assistant Senior Patrol Leader Kenny Nyquist hand the key to Jude Hall over to Maple Lake Mayor Lynn Kissock, Thursday, Oct. 23, at the building’s re-dedication ceremony. Behind them, Scouts (from left) Gabe Riviere, Samuel Riviere, Gabriel Smail and Jack Peterson look on.

Members of Boy Scouts Troop 219 listen as Betty Thomes, former member of the Maple Lake Jaycees, remembers the trouble they had moving Jude Hall to Bolduan Park back in 1982. The Municipal Airport donated the building to the Jaycees, but it fell apart on the way over.

From left, Maple Lake Mayor Lynn Kissock, city council member Deb Geyen and Scout leader Alan Loch look at a diagram the Jaycees put together back in 1982 when they started the Bolduan Park project. Loch found the diagram in the dumpster when the Boy Scouts started cleaning out Jude Hall one year ago. Much of what the Jaycees conceptualized came true, including ball fields, hockey rink and game pond.
