Our Window on the World, a National Garden Club Standard (NGC) flower show was presented recently by the Conrad Garden Club.
This theme was inspired by the classic windows in the historic Arnot’s building downtown.
Our view of Conrad, the area of life in general depends upon “our window on the world” and this theme allowed the community to share their perspectives.

The Malta Mustangs came into town Friday and spoiled the home opener for the home boys – handily taking a 41-6 win.
Noah Harms gathered in the opening kick for the Mustangs, followed his blockers down the left side, found a big opening and raced 75 yards for a score. Six seconds into the contest Conrad trailed 6-0.
The Cowboys looked like they would answer right back on their opening drive. Luke Schlosser brought the kickoff out to the 25 yard line.
