BY PIPPI MAYFIELD firstname.lastname@example.org Earlier this summer, dancers from Detroit Lakes had the opportunity to combine with dancers from the Twin Cities and dance their way down to Disney World to perform. Taking the stage June 20, 10 students from Mari Radke’s Summit Dance Studio in Detroit Lakes and 15 students from Brittany Radke-Milan’s dance studio Elevé in Minneapolis — where Mari is also a part owner and instructor — traveled to the home of Mickey and Minnie Mouse to strut their stuff. The dance students had been practicing two Fridays a month since October, getting ready for
Sept. 10 marks a major anniversary in Detroit Lakes. The Pavilion will be 100 years old — and the Becker County Historical Society is helping to celebrate it. Not only will the museum be marking the 100-year anniversary of the Pavilion, staff and members will also be kicking off the public portion of the capital campaign for the new museum building. With more details to come, museum staff is asking for the public’s help with the celebration. Anyone with Pavilion memorabilia is asked to bring it to the museum to be displayed during the Sept. 10 event.
Normally I keep my personal life personal, but this adventure (more the location than anything) I wanted to share. A few weeks ago, my daughter and I traveled to Banff National Park in Alberta, Canada. It is a part of the Canadian Rockies, and it was gorgeous. If you haven’t heard of it or been there, Google it.

We passed the time with movies and a book.

“But there comes a time in history of any business when improvements and changes are necessary.” Roger Hamilton and Jack Benshoof wrote that in a 1961 edition of the Record when they sold the newspaper to the next publisher, Bill Robbins. While no one is selling the Record today, we are making improvements and changes here at Detroit Lakes Newspapers. After 143 years, we are putting the Record to rest. This was a big decision, and one that has been discussed for many years. It was not taken lightly because we understand the historical value of the Record.
Detroit Lakes grad Morgan Nodsle is headed to Jamaica for a little schooling — or rather to school some students herself. An education of the deaf and hard of hearing and elementary education double major at Augustana College in Sioux Falls, S.D., Nodsle and a classmate — the only two in their degree field — are traveling to Jamaica for three weeks in January to teach at the Jamaica Christian School for the Deaf as a part of their senior project. Nodsle said she became interested in education of the deaf because of her mother, who was a teacher for the deaf.
