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!

We have learned Mrs. Stenerson is rapidly improving and that Sandra is able to walk up and down the hallway with assistance from attendants.

The Edinburg Creamery corner has been cleared of rubble and debris afte the fire last spring. Milo Rustan is buying cream there and Mrs. Harry Rustan is selling ice cream and soft drinks in the ice cream parlor.

Mr. and Mrs. John Rohrer and Judy went to California to visit Mr. Rohrer's dad who was seriously sick. Ellen Kertz has been taking care of the store while they are gone. In a recent letter to a friend in Edinburg, Mrs. Rohrer wrote that John's father is much improved and the family will soon be returning.

Alma Johansen went on a two week vacation from the bank. She and Julia Hammerstad went to Greely, Colorado, where Miss Hammerstad took a short summer school couse at the teacher's college there. Alma likes Colorado very much.

Verna Delle Laithwaite, who taught school at Langdon last year along with Miss Valborg Moen, who taught in Edinburg this past year, also went to Greeley. They are both studying at the teacher's college summer school session.

Poachers beware! You could be in deep trouble at Dave and Loretta Monson's place. Seems like all the vegetables have disappeared already.
