Thirteen Lynnville-Sully student athletes capped their track seasons with 10 events at the 2015 Iowa High School State Track and Field Championships May 21-23 at Drake Fieldhouse in Des Moines. Four of these athletes, seniors Shelby Davis, Madison Rasmusson, Cori Rice, and Noah Zylstra, made the final trips of their high schol track career around the blue oval, culminating a track career that included multiple state appearances, personal bests, and broken school records. 

The girls track team's history-making season saw them become the first girls state-qualifying track meet team championship in school history. The girls qualified seven events for Class 1-A state track competition where they tied for 20th place.

On the boys' side, four boys competed in three events at the state meet, where they tied for 45th place.

Here are the results of the history-making trip to state.

Beginning July 1st, garbage collection services for Sully will undergo a change. Curbside trash collection will still be provided each Friday by Midwest Sanitation; however, the way in which the trash is collected will change.
Midwest Sanitation will provide each residential customer with one 65-gallon tote for trash/solid waste. One tote will be collected each week from each residential customer using a truck with an automated arm that will pick up and dump the tote. This method is already being used in Pella and Lynnville.
All trash must fit inside the provided 65-gallon tote.  No extra loose bagged trash or boxes will be collected unless Midwest Sanitation has been contacted ahead of time for scheduling and paying required fees.
Midwest Sanitation will be delivering the totes during the month of June.  Each tote will have a letter attached explaining the service and giving residents multiple avenues to contact Midwest Sanitation via social media, website, and telephone.

The 2015 theme for the annual July 4th celebration is "Pride in Our Past....Faith in Our Future" so start getting your parade entries ready.

Contact Kevin Van Maanen at 641-780-3863 by June 30 if interested in playing in a July 4 coed softball tournament.

The Sully Central Park Playset Committee has teamed up with The Principal Charity Classic Golf Tournament to raise funds for the Sully Central Park playset.  Birdies For Charity enables a person to pledge an amount they’re willing to pay for the total number of birdies the golf pros will make during the golf tournament that will be played June 5-7. The minimum pledge amount is five cents per birdie. In 2014, there were 843 total birdies. This would be a $42.15 donation. If you don’t want to make a birdie pledge, you also have the option to make a one-time flat donation amount (minimum $25).

One-hundred percent of the donations and pledges will go to the Sully Central Park playset project fund.  Plus all your donations and pledges are tax deductible.

How do you participate or make a pledge? Two ways are available to choose from.

1. Fill out a pledge form and return it to the Sully City Clerk’s Office. Click here to view and print the pledge form and additional details.

               The Sully Night Out Committee has organized a donkey basketball game for Monday, Apr. 13, at 6:30 p.m. at the Lynnville-Sully High School gym as a fundraiser for the central park and playground improvement project. Doors will open at 5:30 p.m. with concession stand operated by the Lynnville-Sully baseball team open at 5:45 p.m. so you can eat your evening meal before the donkey games begin. The menu includes walking tacos, super nachos, pulled pork, hotdogs, popcorn, pop, Gatorade, water, and candy.

                Mark Doll and Dwight Beyer will be the announcers. Teryl Ver Ploeg and Melissa Doll will operate the scoreboard.

                Free donkey rides will be given to children at intermission. Children must have a coupon for a free ride available at the door and must be age 12 or younger and accompanied by a paying adult, limited to the first 125 children in line for a ride.

                For those unfamiliar with this fun event, teams of local residents play basketball while riding, or trying to ride, a donkey. Of course, there are always some stubborn mules (possibly trained that way?) that make scoring or even getting close to the hoop a hilarious challenge. Four teams have signed up. The first game will be 1st State Bank versus Janco, and the second game will feature the Lynnville-Sully faculty versus Co-Line, followed by the winners in the championship game with a trophy donated by The Trophy Shop, Sully.

                Team members are as follows.

1st State Bank: Keith Renaud, Kyle Terpstra, Kurt Harthoorn, Brad Van Vark, Steve Russell, Lejon Ladwig, Drew Van Rees, Kyle Van Rees, Tara Conover, Stacey Alberts, and Nick Beyer coached by James Walkup.

Janco: Joe Dirksen, Troy Hartz, Tyler Jansen, Ryan McFarland, Dylan Nelson, Brady Sage, Garrett Van Maanen, and Scott Van Zee coached by Dana McFarland.

Lynnville-Sully faculty: Brian Lowry, Joel Vos, Darin Arkema, Nick De Penning, Kevin Johnson, Nick Harthoorn, Joel Harthoorn, and Matt Rasmusson coached by Jerry Hulsing and Jeff Corbett.

Co-Line: Ryan Johnson, Cory Tice, Chris Tice, Jeff Kling, Brady Van Wyk, Tony Van Wyk, Shane Jansen, Steve Davis, Jason Allbee, Jay Mitchell, Ashley Lemons, Rachel Zuidema, and Tayler Vander Molen coached by Dale (Rail) Brand and Eric Brand.

                Monday, Apr. 13, at 1 p.m. is the deadline for purchasing advance discounted tickets at $6 each (for all ages, preschool free) at both banks in Sully, the bank in Lynnville, and the Hometown Press in Sully. Tickets at the door will be $8 each.

                If you have questions, contact committee members Janise Gruver at 641-990-2867 or Barb Maasdam at 594-3493.
