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!

A FEW EXCERPTS FROM THE 1945 NOVEMBER SERVICEMAN

The month of November has had a steady diet of gray and cloudy weather. A fall of snow of about 5 inches blocked highway 32 for several days. Due to the lack of sunshhine the flu is progressing, especially among the school children

Wedding vows were spoken October 30 by Lois Patricia Flanagan and Marino Magnus Olafson. They were married at the home of the bridegroom's parents, Mr. & Mrs. J. K. Olafson. Reverand Fafnes held the ceremony.

The Lutheran Church in Mountain is where Sylvia Arason married Orval Monson, son of Mr. & Mrs. Carl Monson, on November 18th. A reception was held at the Halldorson home following the ceremony.

It was reported by Game Warden, E. M. Lee, that an estimated 6,000 deer were shot by hunters in North Dakota during the 5 day hunting season. It was reported an estimated 8,000 licenses were issued to big game hunters, so it seems about 2,000 hunters were disappointed.

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

Life is good in Edinburg.
