..... PAGE 1 1 December 1, 2016 Gretta Lemke, Valley Victors 4Her of the Month November, 2016 Hello, I am Gretta Lemke and I love raising poultry. My favor- ite breed is the White Bantam Leghorn which is a small white chicken. I enjoy being in poul- try bowl. Last year, we made it to state answering questions about all different types of poultry. I also show sheep. My favorite part of the sheep project is Lamb Lead. In this competition, you have to make or buy an outfit for you and your sheep, then present it to a judge. When I am not working with my poultry or sheep, I enjoy running, sewing, acting, and writing.

(IBTGF). IBTGF is a publicly traded companylisted on the OTCQB exchange, trading "over the counter." There are presently thousands of shareholders. ~ened: BTC was first incorporated in Pennsylvania in 1993, but moved to Watkins in 1995. Our Employees: We currently have 42 employees. What do we do? Barrier owns a proprietary cement formulation (Pyrotite) that when applied to wood panels provides a significant fire barrier while increasing the strength of the panel to which it is applied. Mike Huddy is president of Barrier Technology Corporation in Watkins. What sets us apart: The wood panel treatment material (Pyrotite) is an environmentally friendly, non- hazardous material that is inert and inorganic, meaning it will remain unchanged and effective for many years. It is the only fire-resistive additive that also increases the strength of the wood it is applied to. It stands up to normal environmental conditions during a normal construction period and consequently does not need to be protected even if it gets rained or snowed on. Our customers: The most common "end user" of our treated wood panel are multi-family residential builders who are looking for a fire-rated panel for fire-rated wall assemblies and roof deck applications. Barrier has also begun to use the treatment technology to protect structural I-joists to help increase their structural longevity in a fire. Community involvement: Barrier is a member of the Watkins Area Chamber of Commerce and the Central Minnesota Builders Association.

Greg Lux entertained us with his juggling skills, Johnathan Gathje talked about picking corn and get- ting it ready for the fair. Gregory Gathje told the group about his insect collection and Katherine Gathje informed us about the Washington Focus trip she went on. The Valley Victors were given tasks to hang up on the board to help organize the food-themed meeting in January. They learned that it takes everyone to put on a committee meeting, not just adults. They later took a survey that asked questions about what they are interested in, and are willing to do. One question was what they would like to gain from being a volunteer. Gretta Lemke Club Reporter 'Fargo' to film in Alberta By lean Doran Matua, Editor The third season of the popu- lar FX Network series "Fargo" will be filmed in Beiseker, Alberta, Canada. This was announced last week. The village of 785 people is about 70 km (40 miles) north- east of Calgary. Some scenes of the movie "Brokeback Mountain" were filmed in the area. Robert Hilton, lead location manager, said the executive pro- ducers loved how closely Beiseker resembles Eden Valley, the locale of season 3. "The town fits abso- lutely perfect to the story. We couldn't build it better in a back lot," Hilton told the Rocky View Weekly. Filming is scheduled for Jan. 6 to May 13, and it's likely to be for 1-3 days at a time. Other locations in Alberta will be used as well. The story is set in Eden Valley from Dec. 13, 2010, to Jan. 7, 2011, more or less. The January to May shooting schedule should ensure a snowy backdrop for the series. Beiseker mayor Ray Courtman is very pleased "Fargo" chose his village for filming. He hopes it will bring new businesses to Main Street.
