Students at Prairie View School honored area Veterans on Monday, Veterans Day, with a special program.
The PVS gym filled up to almost standing room only capacity. Before the program, students and faculty members got those attending a cup of coffee and a cinnamon roll.
Elementary Principal Greg Jensen gave a short welcoming address and then the students led the opening of the program with the Pledge of Allegiance.
On Oct. 29 of this year, Eric Norby was diagnosed with Acute Myelogenous Leukemia (AML). He was working in Dickinson, N.D. at the time, and received temporary treatment at Benefis in Great Falls. He was then transferred to Rochester, Minn.
The standard treatment is known as “seven and three”. It consists of one chemo drug for three days, and a continuous chemo for 24 hours for seven days. On day 14, another bone marrow biopsy is taken to see how treatment is working, and then another bone marrow biopsy on day 30. After that, another plan will be made depending on the results.

Pondera Arts Council is celebrating George Tornga’s ten year management of the Orpheum Theatre with a retirement party at Norley Hall at 7 p.m. on Nov. 16.
This is a chance for Conrad people to thank George for his tireless efforts to bring the Orpheum back to life. A jack-of-all-trades, George was a visionary as a projectionist, movie and concert manager, and repair man of everything—always on call.
The party will include Mark Daniels as a DJ from 8 to 10 p.m., a no host bar, hors d’oeuvres, cakes, fun costumes, and tributes.
Everyone who is appreciative of having the Orpheum part of this town is encouraged and invited to come. Pondera Arts Council President Helen Elliott said, “Put on your movie star face and costume and say ‘Thanks George’.”
