25 Years Ago

October 23, 1996

All-Star/Amoco is celebrating its 20th anniversary this month. It all started out when Bruce and Becky Sellnow purchased the Amoco station in 1976. The original Amoco had a small shop in which minor car repairs were done, like oil changes and things like that. In 1986, the old station was torn down to make a larger store which includes a convenience store and laundry. A car wash was also built at this time and a service bay was installed. In 1990, they added the deli and pizzas and office space and in 1994 took out the service bay which expanded the deli and made the store larger.


The following B-H students won first place and $5 for their fire prevention posters: Ryan Denny, kindergarten; Lisa Rudrud, first grade; Molly Moenkedick, second grade; Joanne Iliff, third grade; Eric Samuelson, fourth grade; Chelsea Hoemberg, fifth grade; and Jessica Roller, sixth grade.
