PAGE 6 THE PRESS SEPTEMBER 18, 2013 f By Allison Olimb of The Press PARK RIVER, N.D. -- The day of the big homecoming game in Park River on Sept. 6, Park River Area School was making some last minute adjustments to the field with the addition of a brand new scoreboard. The old scoreboard was taken down by late morning and the new one was up not long after. The three-piece Daktronic score- board went up on the old posts with time to spare. Park River Area School Superintendant Kirk Ham said that the old score- board had been in place for prob- ably around 40 years and it was time for an update. The Park River Class of 2013 donated $4,000 dollars to the $15,000 project and Aggie Boosters and the school contributed the rest. Class of 2013 alumna Kendall Slebodnik said that their class had extra funds available and after presenting a few ideas to Ham about what the money could be used for, the scoreboard project was chosen. The timing could not have been better as the scoreboard proudly displayed the Park Riv- er/ Fordville-Lankin Aggies' 20 to 12 homecoming win over the Lakota-Edmore-Dakota Prairie Raiders.
