South St. Paul Fans


to request the renaming of the Wakota Arena 

to the Doug Woog Ice Arena


Doug Woog is the face of hockey in Minnesota, and, as a native of South St. Paul, represents the very finest of our community, not just from the standpoint of hockey, but also as a neighbor, a friend, a mentor, a coach, a teacher and a citizen. He was recently honored with the Cliff Thompson Award, given by the Minnesota Hockey Coaches Association in recognition of his many years of service to the sport of hockey.
It is fitting that South St. Paul, Doug's boyhood home, and city where Doug's hockey future had its genesis, honor Doug by renaming the ice arena in appreciation of the honor and recognition he has brought to the city. The name "Wakota" was adopted when the arena was built, but has no real meaning as it is simply a contraction of Washington County and Dakota County. Since the arena has no affiliation with Washington County, nothing is lost and no slights should be felt with the change to the more appropriate renaming. (More information can be found at the link.)

Conversations of History in South St. Paul

Feeling nostalgic about your hometown? If you haven't found this place yet, check it out!


Be sure to allow about 2 hours. You'll get hooked!

2/23/15: We recently received this compliment about the Facebook site from a staff member of the Minnesota History Society:

  • Nicole Delfino Jansen And I should also note, MHS is currently working on an exhibit about Suburbia (to open this fall) and South St. Paul is one of the cities they are focusing on. We have great researchers - I turned their attention to this FB site (and Lois [Glewwe]) and I don't mind divulging that they LOVE it and have expressed what a valuable and unique resource it is. They say a number of communities have pages for history, but they have never seen one so active and with so much resource material. So many great contributors. I am not an old-timer in SSP, but wow - I thoroughly enjoy what all of you put into it!!!


What's New on the Site?
New automatic feature
now called
"Under the Clock"
See link on top margin, first on left
♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦

Not long ago we added a "What's New" page to our web site. This is a comprehensive page that displays new content from all over our site. We have renamed this "Under the Clock" for sentimental reasons. You can easily participate with the class right from this chat page by making comments, adding photos, videos and more.

We'd like you to take a moment right now and do two things:

1) Click the "Notify Me" link under your Member Functions. Make sure desired options are enabled so you stay up to date with our class. Don't forget to follow your favorite classmates from the bottom of the page!

2) At the top of the "Under the Clock" page please enter a comment to the class. Let us know what you've been up to in your life! Even if it's just a quick "hello" we want you to see first hand how this page functions.

Once you've done these two things our site will automatically alert you whenever there is something new to see.

And one more thing: Be sure to click "Edit Profile," add or update "Then" and "Now" photos if you have some available, and make sure your Profile information is current. We'd really appreciate you taking a moment to do this too.

Classmate Obituary

Rein Werner 1945 – 2014

Submitted by Renee Werner Ponto:

"It is with a heavy heart I inform you that my twin, Rein Werner, passed away on the evening of December 22nd in the ICU of Broward Health Imperial Point Hospital in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. 
Rein's kids (Denny Werner and Lisa Altendorfer) and son-in-law, Dave Altendorfer, visited with Rein the first part of November. Rich and Kathy, Maureen, Jerry and I were able to visit him and his wife, Terri, the week before he died. Rein had multiple health issues and we are thankful he did not suffer any longer than he did. 
Following Rein's wishes there will be no funeral services."
Condolences (memorials very much appreciated) may be sent to Rein's wife:

Terri Werner,
613 N 29th Drive,
Wilton Manors, FL 33334
or to Rein's family at:
c/o Lisa Altendorfer,
249 W. Warburton St.,
South St. Paul, MN 55075


If you haven't had the fun of seeing our very own yearbook on the Web, check this out:

Would you have ever imagined something amazing like this back in 1963?  I see they're having a "sale" and the regular price of $99.99 is 20% off plus free shipping for a limited time!  Wowee! If you don't have your own copy handy, take a stroll down memory! Still boggles the mind, doesn't it?
