Rohrer’s Girl Scout Gold Award project musically entertaining for all

Rohrer’s Girl Scout Gold Award project musically entertaining for all

Edgar’s Kristen Rohrer recently completed her Girl Scout Gold Award project, implementing a Harmony Park, as seen above, in the park south of Edgar’s City Hall. ASHLEY D. SWANSON | CLAY COUNTY NEWS

When the idea for her Girl Scout Gold Award project came around, Sandy Creek senior Kristen Rohrer was on a trip to Colorado with her family.

During a break from whitewater rafting, the family stumbled upon Harmony Park, which features as series of outdoor musical instruments. The entire project began about three years ago when Rohrer presented the idea to the Edgar City Council, which approved the project.

Rohrer said the initial project began in January this year, when she contacted the Harmony Park website and began getting quote prices for instruments.

Originally, Rohrer planned on purchasing the starter park, which comes with about three or four instruments; however, with the help of two grants amounting to $2,000 and once she began fundraising, sending letters to a variety of about 100 people, Rohrer realized she would be able to purchase more instruments.

Risk dial moves to ‘elevated;’ weekly case numbers rise

South Heartland District Health Department’s (SHDHD) risk dial, which is a summary of current COVID-19 conditions in the district, moved to “elevated” (orange) Wednesday, Sept. 23. The dial moved from 2.0 to 2.1.

“The risk dial is one tool we use to communicate the risk of coronavirus spread in our district,” SHDHD executive director Michele Bever said. “We encourage families, schools, work sites, event organizers and whole communities to continue to take actions to reduce the risk of spread of this coronavirus. We encourage residents to review the Risk Dial guidance for the “moderate” and “elevated” levels of risk and work to incorporate as much as you can into the things that you do and the places you go.”

Also as of Sept. 23, confirmed cases have increased to 646, 22 more than the previously reported 624 on Sept. 21.
