Fireworks light up the sky on December 5, 2020 as locals and tourists gather socially distanced around town to watch. Hot chocolate in hand, and winter coats on, it's certainly not the weather conditions one imagines watching fireworks in, but it is more than a unique experience. This time of year has its natural beauty, so the added festivity to that is just that much more memorable.

“I swear we didn't plan this.” Galena High School volleyball team dressed in all black on October 15, 2020, just as a fun bonding experience. As they entered practice, Coach Wills began noticing a pattern, all were in black. The previous practice, the senior girls wore their freshman year warmup shirts, so they thought all wearing black would be a good way to get the whole team on board. “Volleyball is not like it has been in the past, so our team does little things like this, to make it a little more fun,” said Julia Townsend ‘23. “This is a fun yet practical way for us to bond and make memories during this crazy, unsure season.”

All in making masks for the community, Danielle Stephanopoulos ‘23, Julia Townsend ‘23, Morgan McIntyre ‘21, Kate Moran ‘21, Alex Oberbroeckling ‘23, Maddy Glasgow ‘22, and Spencer Crawford ‘21 display the large selection of masks they created for the hospital. These students took on the task of making masks after Mrs. Bookless saw on Facebook that the Midwest Medical Center was asking for volunteers to donate. “No volunteer work I have done in the past compares to this,” said Morgan McIntyre ‘21. “Not only did we get to practice our sewing skills, but we get the satisfaction of knowing they are going to help others.”
