WADENA — The stage is set and the main events for Wadena are underway as the Wadena-Deer Creek All School Reunion and June Jubilee started Thursday, June 10.
The parks are looking pristine and garage sales are around every corner. The Wadena-Deer Creek School and Wadena Chamber have outdone themselves with a host of events and fun spread through the community.
About 260, alumni and their spouses, were registered prior to the start of the event. Many more were registering as they arrived in town. Registration takes place just inside the doors of the WDC middle/high school.
