More pictures of the banquet to come. I had the pleasure today to have Terrie Hanke, the Teacher on the Trail this year, come to my class to talk. She shared stories of the Iditarod and what she got out of it this year. The presentation was set up more for a student from the lower 48, being that the lower 48 barely hears of the Iditarod, if they hear about it at all. My mom said she heard one little blurp about it on the car radio while going into work. Even with the "expert" kids since they live here, they loved hearing from her and were actually really attentive. It went very well, even though it was interrupted for ten minutes due to an unscheduled fire drill.
