Runners-up in the local Odd Fellows and Rebekahís competition, Ingalsbe and Janotta competed at the jurisdictional on March 8 in Le Center for the chance to join Erin Aagesen, the local winner, on the pilgrimage.
The trip is June 22 to July 3. The pilgrimage is a historic east coast tour which includes stopovers in Niagara Falls, Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, Gettysburg, and five nights in New York.
Janotta and Ingalsbe competed against four other students at the jurisdictional. Five students (three from Paynesville) from Minnesota will join others from across the country on the pilgrimage.
The Odd Fellows and Rebekahs of America feel the pilgrimage provides exposure to the activity of governments and the work of the United Nations. It gives students a chance to see, hear, and question members of national delegations and specialists from various departments at the United Nations.
They are the daughters of Dave and Barb Ingalsbe, rural Paynesville, and John and Mary Janotta, Paynesville.
