Truman gets ready for school

TRUMAN – Truman Public School’s Child Care Center will provide daycare and after-school care for children 6 weeks old through school age.

The staff is trained in CPR/First Aid and provides educational learning activities.

They are open 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday year round. They have some openings.

If you would like to enroll your child or have questions answered, call Mindy Cook at (507) 776-2111.


Delvin Meyer is celebrating his 80th birthday Saturday. A card shower is planned for this former “Truman kid.” Greetings may be sent to Delvin at 2508 E. Main, Mankato, MN 56001.


All the Truman bus routes will remain the same as they finished last year. If you have any questions, call Ron at Truman Bus Service, Inc. at (507) 776-2111.


Another order for Truman Public School “Pride” shirts will be placed soon. The deadline to order is Sept. 12. Stop by the high school office to see design samples.

Contact Courtney Studer or Paula Kester if you have questions or would like to place an order.

Truman pride shirts were sold at Truman Days in Graf Park. There’s a Bluejay mascot on the shirt along with Truman Public School, established in 1901. They come in various colors and designs.


The first day of school for grades 7-12 at Truman High School is Tuesday.

Grades K-6 will have pre-scheduled parent conferences on Tuesday and Wednesday.

The first day of school for elementary students will be Sept. 4.

Now that school is in session, all drivers need to be aware of the children and of all pedestrians. Remember to stop for all pedestrians in crosswalks. They have the right of way. Please drive with extra care and keep everyone safe.


It’s not too late to return your Truman Days garage sales questionnaire. So far, Kathy and Barb have received questionnaires from about half of the total 62 sales held.

Each sale participant was sent a questionnaire along with a self-addressed stamped envelope. All opinions are valued.

The information that is sent back will help to determine dates and times for next year. Even if you don’t have a lot of comments to write about, send back the questionnaire with your feelings about this year’s and next year’s sales.

A summary of the questionnaire findings will appear in the Truman Tribune as soon as more surveys.

Please send them in as soon as you can. If you lost your copy, please call Barb at (507) 776-7601 or Kathy at (507)776-7091.


Truman City Council will meet 7 p.m. Tuesday due to the Labor Day holiday on Monday. Everyone is welcome to attend any of the City Council meetings.


Expect delays on Highway 15 after Labor Day. Motorists can expect delays from the north county line about two miles north of Truman through Truman and to the north end of Fairmont.

Motorists will need to drive with caution through the work zone and watch for flaggers, traffic control and equipment. This much needed project should be completed by mid-October.


Recycling day is this coming Wednesday. Carts need to be curbside by 7 a.m. with the wheels of the cart facing your house. It’s great to see now many earth-friendly residents are making use of this bi-monthly collection.
