Closed But Full, PAS a Hive of Activity on MLK

If you ventured out on the north west side of Pipestone this weekend, you probably noted swirling drifts blocking the roads, doors, and parking lots of the school and library. Quite honestly, it looked like a post-apocalyptic landscape scrubbed clean of all human activity. The abandoned vehicles a mere reminder that we did not belong there.


Well, all of that has changed. Despite being closed today, the school and library parking lots are full. This time with cars instead of snow.

PAS teachers are hard at work, finishing the first semester and preparing for the next. The success of their students a priority that benefits not only our youth, but also the future of our community.

Speech students will overtake the library, preparing for the upcoming season, and gaining skills that will last them a lifetime.

I don’t  have confirmation, but if history repeats itself, the Arrow Bots will be busy building a new robot for the Firts Robotics season under the expertise of Mr. D.

At 3:00 PM, Reggie Gorter will direct the One Act play. This public performance, postponed from Saturday night, is free and open to the public. You are invited to support our budding thespians today, as they take the stage ahead of Saturday’s subsection competition.

Rounding out the day’s activities is a series of boy’s basketball games against Dawson-Boyd beginning at 4:45pm.

If you are able, today’s holiday is a great opportunity to stop by the school and support the youth in our community. The roads are clear, but my hope is to keep those parking lots full.



Meinders Community Library is a combined school and public library that serves the residents of Pipestone County in Southwestern Minnesota. It is part of the Plum Creek Library System.
