The first-ever NRHEG High School Snow Week is set for February 4-9.
Highlights of the week include coronation of the Snow Week royalty at 2:15 Monday in the high school gym, a talent contest Friday at 12:30 and a dance Saturday night.
“The Snow Week activities should be a nice way to bring some excitement to the long, cold weeks of winter,” said NRHEG Student Council Advisor Sandy Schumacher. “It will be a great chance to highlight some of the talents our students have worked so hard to develop. During the days of snow week, it will be fun to see the costumes people find for the dress-up days. As far as the dance, it's nice to provide a social opportunity where our students can have fun, but a lot of variables can be kept under control. This whole event is new for NRHEG, so we hope everything goes well for all concerned. We appreciate the interest and support we are getting from people in the communities.”

Whitey Hagen caught and auctioned off a chicken 30 years ago, and for 29 years, the eggs have been rolling in as big money makers for the Geneva Cancer Auction.
Deviled eggs, pickled eggs, hot eggs, raw eggs, and egg omelets; dozens of eggs have found their way to the auction block and have received fabulous prices for this charitable event. Nobody seems to tire of making, buying and eating them.
Like Whitey says, "With $100 or more a dozen, that is only $10 apiece."
Hagen was involved in a cancer auction in 1975 that raised $256. This year, $83,000 was raised during the auction and other fundraising events in Geneva.
