Field name to forever remember two of the community’s finest

Jeff Reese was wearing a New Richland-Hartland Cardinal uniform the first time a certain Morristown cheerleader named Carol Allingsworth caught his eye.

He was immediately stricken.

“I thought she was pretty neat the first time I saw her,” said Reese.

He remembers talking to her for the first time after an afternoon football game at Morristown, and he remembers their first extended conversation when he ran into her — along with her then steady boyfriend — in the Waseca bowling alley lounge.

“She said I tripped her,” said Reese.

In a way, he did.

Officially, Georgia Dinneen is retired from her job as an instructor at NRHEG High School.

But early this month, she was coaxed out of retirement for a few days.

As she has done 10 times since 2004, Dinneen accompanied NRHEG students and other chaperones on what has become the school’s annual trip to Washington, D.C.

“Our intention in the beginning was to go every other year,” said Dinneen. “This trip was our fourth year in a row.”

After retiring last spring, Dinneen was asked by NRHEG Administration to go on one last trip to D.C.

“That’s why I did it,” she said. “It was an especially enjoyable trip to me just because I got to spend time again with teenagers. They are what I miss most about retirement.”

Contributing Writer

Early in the morning and during afternoon recess, 450 children gather in long lines at NRHEG Elementary School, waiting patiently for their turn on the playground equipment – much loved and dilapidated equipment that, 25 years ago, served only 250 children before the Ellendale-Geneva school merged with New Richland-Hartland.

Some of the sturdier equipment has been on the playground for at least 50 years and is still serving the children well, but now, the wooden playset in the middle of the playground stands crooked and is missing pieces that can no longer be acquired. Members of the Playground Committee call the wooden playground set “dangerous.”
