Bonnie Ulrich of Dickinson was a little girl in 1950 when she contracted polio. She remembers feeling ill, falling down and receiving treatments at a Bismarck hospital. Ulrich, 73, reminisced about her experiences in anticipation of the upcoming Pancake Karnival, sponsored by the Rotary Club of Dickinson, on Sunday, Oct. 16.
Rotarians from Dickinson have been on the front lines of eradicating polio throughout the world. Glenice Hansen and the late Clyde Frank recently traveled to India in separate trips as part of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative. The Rotary Club's sixth annual Pancake Karnival on Sunday, Oct. 16, is dedicated to the memory of Frank, who "tirelessly campaigned for polio eradication and immunized children in India against polio," as is stated on the tickets.

The conflicts between an estranged father and daughter, and difficulties faced by a couple in the twilight of their marriage set the stage for the classic "On Golden Pond." The story is being presented as the first theatrical production in the newly remodeled Belfield Theater & Performance Center. "It's a beautiful play, almost better than the movie," Director Michael R. Stevenson said. "It doesn't go quite so deep into the characters like a movie can. They're stuck in the house, and you won't see the scene of them falling off the boat in the middle of the lake."
The Dorcas Society is launching a new fall fundraiser—a benefit breakfast and bake sale, on Sunday, Oct. 9, at the Eagles Club. Sundays are filled with promises—a chance to sleep in, read the newspaper, to begin with worship, or to launch a home project, Dorcas Society member Gail Ebeltoft said. "Breakfast out is the perfect complement to Sunday's promise," she said. "Relax and share breakfast with your friends and family. Grab a quick bite so you can move on to the next project, or stop by and purchase some delicious baked goods to savor at a later date."
Parents can help their children avoid becoming overweight or obese by taking preventative measures from an early age, a Dickinson dietitian says. Kayla Haag, a licensed registered dietitian, uses common sense measures when planning meals for her 3½-year-old daughter, Abbie, and 1½-year old-son, Leo. She also makes sure they get plenty of exercise both at home and on the playground.
A "Back to the Future" theme will set the tone when the Dickinson Catholic Schools holds its 16th annual Fall Gala. "We thought the theme would be fun, but we're also reflecting on building our future and embracing our past—a reference to our capital campaign," Director of Advancement John Odermann said. The Fall Gala is Sunday, Oct. 9, at the Astoria Hotel and Event Center in Dickinson. The social starts at 4:30 p.m. with a 6 p.m. dinner. Live and silent auctions will follow.
