It doesn’t matter which town you live in, here in Calhoun, I think we can all agree it was a “Great week to be a Warrior!
Wednesday night, Calhoun Lady Warriors volleyball defeated Griggsville-Perry in both JV and Varsity. On Thursday, Calhoun Jr. High hosted an awesome pep rally to send the Jr. High softball girls on their way to the State Tournament on Friday morning. They won and advanced to the semi-finals and came home with fourth in state. Great job ladies, I can’t wait to see what amazing things you continue to do!
On Friday night, our Calhoun Warrior football team defeated the Carrollton Hawks and on Saturday, JFL lightweights and heavyweights both won, advancing them to the Championship game next Saturday. We are now ready to kick off homecoming week. The Calhoun Warrior cheerleaders hosted a bonfire on Sunday night to get things started. It was themed, “dress like your student night.” Lots of moms, dads, and some siblings dressed like their students. A huge highlight was the double tricycle races.

Larry Martin of Nebo and Emerson Retzer of Kampsville led descendants of the Martin and Retzer families on a tour Saturday of West Cemetery, Nebo; Crescent Heights Cemetery, Pleasant Hill; and Anderson Cemetery in Howell Hollow, North Calhoun. They made some various side stops at Sideview and Nebraska schools in Nebo and East Panther Creek school in Kampsville where their grandma Cora Martin Retzer taught for many years. Their last stop was at the historic 1860 Retzer property at Panther Creek currently owned by Emerson Retzer. Those enjoying the day were Sharon Adair of Bunker Hill, Lori Retzer of East Pekin, Carol Hill of Bluffs, Millie Nagel and Delbert Retzer of Red Bud. They all enjoyed the day and learned so much about the history of their ancestors.
