Dunseith Dragon T-shirt Purchase Question
From Sharon Longie Dana (73): MIssoula MT

Question for the Dunseith community, the last time i was back home which has been a few i bought a Dunseith Dragon t-shirt at the drugstore in town. Can anyone tell me if they still sell them there or if the high school does ?? I am hoping to go home to Dunseith in September and may only be there a few hours(possibly overnight) and was just wondering about the shirts. Any info would be appreciated.

Gary, I just wanted to thank Kenny Nerpel for his service in that ugly war, and recognize his contribution to our North Dakota heritage. Thank you, Kenny, for that service in that terrible place. I’m proud to share a part of our home area with the likes of you. Bill Hosmer
Kenrose Medlang
Message from Vickie Metcalfe (70): Bottineau, ND


I was up town for Crazy Days in Bottineau this afternoon. I met my high school friend Karen(Hagen) Simon for brats smothered with fried onions and sauerkraut sold by the VFW /American Legion. The two of us then went up to see my first Sunday School teacher Kenrose Medlang who is now a resident at the Bottineau Good Samaritan Home. Yup, Me, Joanne, and Marlys met with Kenrose behind the altar at Little Prairie Church. Kenrose always looked so trim and smart in her dresses. Karen recalled the 4-H days at Ackworth School.

I guess, one never forgets the “good in people” folks who shared the “important stuff” in our childhood. I’m sure Kenrose’s day’s would be made brighter if anyone is inclined to send her a card or if you are in Bottineau to visit her at the Bottineau Good Samaritan Home. Although her sight, hearing and mobility are a challenge, her mind is quite alert. Coffee time is 3:00 each afternoon. Thanks Gary. Vickie M.

Vickie, Kenrose brings back many good memories for me too, with 4-H an all. I believe this would be Joanne Millang and Marlys Medlang you are referring too with whom you met behind the alter at Little Prairie Church. Gary
Christmas Card to Julia Stokes from the Willie E Hiatt Family in about 1956
Folks, this is another picture/card we recently found in our Grandmother’s belongings. The Woodward’s Maxine refers to are my grandparents and Corbin Pritchard. My mother’s sister, Luella, died at San Haven in 1944. She and Corbin Pritchard were married in 1943. Luella met Corbin when she was teaching school at Ackworth. Corbin later met and married Doris Smith (46). Corbin and Doris were the owner operators of the Pritchard shoe store in Bottineau for many years. Gary
