The Central volleyball team scored their 1st win of the season September 19 against MFl MarMac.  Earlier in the week, Central took on Starmont on September 17, winning the 1st set, 26-24.

“This gave us the momentum going into the second set, but we were unable to capitalize on winning that first match and lost 25-20,” Coach Derek Bergan said.  “The second set was a hard fought set, and equaled up the score, and the third set you could see that our energy was down, and we lost 25-13.”

Lots of activity at Elkader Care Center

Providing care center residents with stimulating activities is an important part of improving their quality of life. While matching activities with the capabilities of each resident can be challenging, it’s far from impossible—as Lynn Fettkether has proven time and time again.

“I start by getting to know the residents personally, which helps me when I sit down and create a calendar,” said Fettkether, Life Events Coordinator at the Elkader Care Center. “I also get inspiration from what’s happening around us.”

She soon was elected president of the group, a volunteer position she’s capably managed for six or seven years.
