Welcome to Edinburg, ND!

 

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!

 

This Week's news

DURING WWII N. ORDAHL, THE BANKER AT THE TIME, COMPILED, TYPED AND SENT A HOMETOWN NEWSPAPER TO THE LOCAL SERVICEMEN SERVING OUR COUNTRY. HE WANTED THE MEN AND WOMEN TO KNOW WHAT WAS GOING ON BACK HOME. DAVID MONSON GAVE ME COPIES OF THE PAPERS CALLED "THE SERVICEMAN". I WILL SHARE A FEW TIDBITS FROM TIME TO TIME.

:

AN AMUSING PARAGAPH FROM A 1952 SERVICEMAN

Mr Ordahl called this a grievous error, but amusing:

Mr. & Mrs. William Eckardt, who now live in Stephen, MN, heard over the radio one day the announcement of what they thought was the death of Ernest Pavek. They were drawn to Mr Pavek because of the bond of their German descent and birth. They wanted to attend the funeral so they found out the date and came through Edinburg on to Union. They turrned in their memorial and sat through the funeral where the casket was closed. On their way back to Edinburg they over took Pavek on the road. One can imagine their surprise and joy when they discovered Mr. Pavek in the flesh and not a ghost they encountered on the road. Mr. Pavek was very amused and told the story gleefully to everyone he met. The Eckardts had attened the funeral of Alfed Kravik. When they heard the announcement over the radio, it is understandable how they could mistake Kravik for Pavek!

"THE SERVICEMAN" is sponsored by the Lutheran Brotherhood of Edinburg, Odalen and Union and edited by N. Ordahl.

Life is good in Edinburg.

Just happened upon some pictures I took when we went on a safari to the Masai Mara in Kenya. These lady lions were enjoying the hot sunshine of the day.
