Cub Scouts from Milbank held their annual turtle races at the Emanuel Lutheran Church. Two divisions competed. In the Rookie division, Denim Fahleen won first place, Keaton Johnson was second, and Grant Christenson, third. In the Veteran division, Jarrett Amdahl won the event, Trey Reil earned second place, and Jayden Johnson, third place.
Turtle races are an activity for scouts to learn craftsmanship and sportsmanship. The scouts build and decorate wooden turtles to race down a track using a string.
