Welcome to Edinburg, ND!

 

 

MORE CROW'S NEST NEWS: So many things have happened that I thought I had better add an addition to the Crow's Nest.

Edinburg residents seem to be on the move. Yesterday Jim and Lois Otto moved to Fargo. It is sad to see them go. A few weeks ago Beverley Hall moved to Park River into the beautiful apartments attached to the Good Samaritan Center. The places are so warm and inviting. Glen Haug has an apartment there and I believe John and Eunice Evenson will also soon reside there in an apartment. Fortunately, we have young couples and families moving into our little town.

Ken Seim had surgery last week. He is still hospitalized. We are thinking about you Ken. Also, Sharon Nygard fell and broke her wrist about 3 weeks ago. I must have been living under a rock as I didn't hear about it until last Friday. I am sure this is VERY inconvenient for Sharon as I know she really enjoys cooking and making meals for Orlyn and herself. Orlyn and Sharon have been my winter "walking buddies" up at school for the last couple of years.

Finally, congratulations to Michael and Caitlin Evenson on the expected new brother or sister for Audrey. We are so happy for you. We'll talk later. Have a great day!

Chuck Mielke is high up in Bruce Langerud's lift as he is putting netting at the top of the grocery store in hopes of keeping the swallows from nesting there. They can be a terrible nuisance. Thanks Judy Sorbo for the picture.

 

Northeast North Dakota is a well-kept secret, especially the little town of Edinburg. It sits on the edge of the fertile farmland of the Red River Valley and the prairies of the west. Edinburg has a population of about 190 people with the drive, dreams and heart of cities 10 times its size. Edinburg could be a "throw-back" to the 50's with its pristine cleanliness, manicured yards and well-kept homes, but it is most definitely planted in the 21st century with citizens who strive to keep Edinburg very much alive!

Edinburg is a great place to live!

Bernice Flanagan held her annual Customer Appreciation Day yesterday. She makes it a great event with activities during the day plus a meal and polka dancing to a live band in the evening. Bernice knows how to throw a party! Linda Readel is paying for purchases she made at the General Store.
