Benches for Bodee in Hudson


 Monday afternoon a celebration of the life of Bodee Peterson - who died last summer in a skiing accident.

The nine-year-old member of the Waterhawks Ski Team was hit by a boat on Eagle Lake in Evansdale last August.

The Hudson Community School District and Peterson's family held a special dedication ceremony in his honor.

The Interlude dance made famous by UNI students was one of Bodee's favorites -- and brought the celebration at Hudson Elementary to an end.

Two benches in Bodee's memory and a dedication stone now sit just north of the elementary's entrance.

Hudson Elementary Principal, Mark Schlatter said, "We just wanted to bring our school year to a close with a celebration of his life and a project we can remember him with"

Students also read a poem in Bodee's honor.
