The 2013 Elders’ Wisdom community celebration will be held on Thursday, April 11 at Hay Springs High School. This year’s honorees are Margaret Bork and Delmer Hindman. As in the past, the evening will feature good food, fine entertainment, and a thoughtful look into the lives of the honorees.
The celebration will begin with a free-will donation supper, which will include a variety of fresh soups and desserts. Supper will begin at 5:30 p.m. in the school cafeteria. The program will follow at 7:00 pm in the auditorium.
Mistress of Ceremonies Mrs. Beth Jungck promises to deliver an upbeat program featuring the school choirs, short films about the honorees, and other lively entertainment in keeping with the theme of the evening. After gathering oral history from Margaret Bork and Delmer Hindman, the high school Video Production class created the two short films about the honorees. The Video Production class includes Christian Bila, Austin Reed, Patrick Biesterfeld, Laurin Bronson, and teacher Mrs. Efta. We hope that you will join us for the 13th annual Elders’ Wisdom Program!
The Video Production class has been busy planning for the Elders’ Wisdom Program, 2013. Honorees this year are Delmer Hindman and Margaret Bork, both long-time residents of the Hay Springs area. The students are learning about how to conduct an oral history interview and to produce a short film about each honoree. In the process, they are using historical resources to learn about local history and the times in which the honorees lived. The students recently visited Mr. Hindman and Mrs. Bork in their homes, in order to properly introduce themselves and to plan with each honoree for a filmed interview.
The Elders’ Wisdom Program is set to be held on the evening of Thursday, April 11. As in past years, a meal, entertainment, the films, and plenty of socializing will all be part of the event. Watch the Hip Hop for a formal announcement as the date draws near!
