Ian Myrdal had a birthday today. Cake was served at the bank for everyone to enjoy. Pssst - Ian really isn't 40 years old as the balloons indicate. Ian turned 28 today. It is fun to visit with Ian whenever I am in the bank. He is a great guy!

 

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.

EXCERPTS FROM THE SEPTEMBER 1944 SERVICEMAN:

This edition of THE SERVICEMEN This time the column covers happenings in Edinburg and the surrounding area. It makes for a very interesting read.

EVERYDAY LIFE IN EDINBURG

THE SUPER-DELUXE ORCHID AWARD: With reference to the Serviceman, Editor Harry O'Brien of the Walsh County Press writes in the September 7th issue: "We present our super-deluxe Orchid of the Week to the Lutheran Brotherhood of Edinburg, Odalen and Union for their publication, "The Serviceman" which is sent to men in the service from these communities.

Editor O'Brien's praise of the Serviceman is profuse with several quotations in a column of space in the Walsh County Press. We suspect he may have been in Ireland and while there kissed the Blarney Stone. We are of course pleased with the fine remarks and praise bestowed on us, but somewhat puzzled because the heading over the column says, "Read-em and Weep"!!

 

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

Life is good in Edinburg.
