Methodist Church
From Kay Hosmer (‘77):  Crown Point, In  

I am also sad to hear about the Methodist Church.  In terms of its life in the stone church, I believe that I was the last person to be married there.  – I am happy to report that such a fate has not happened everywhere.  The Methodist Church I attend in Crown Point, IN, is a thriving & growing place.  I love being a part of the congregation & owe my roots to the Dunseith Methodist Church.

Folks,  I am running on generator power today.  They have a scheduled brown out (no electricity) from 8:00 am to 5:pm today.  I have a 5.5 KW generator that I brought with us from the states.  It pretty much powers up everything.  It’s been 7 or 8 months since I fired it up.  It’s about noon now, so I think Bernadette and I will go down to the mall for the rest of the afternoon.  Gary

From Sybil Johnson: 

Good morning, Gary and everyone! I’ve looked at all the names of those who graduated from Dunseith and I see none of Augie’s family. I thought they had all

graduated from Dunseith, but evidently that assumption is wrong. Also, I enjoyed looking at the pictures from Dick. I use to drive over that old bridge between

Bismarck and Mandan, when I was in direct sales many many years ago. Thanks again for all the interesting stories and pictures on this site. It is fabulous and

fascinating. Sybil Johnson

Paulette (LaCroix)…

I lived in Germany for quite awhile and was last there for a visit in
2001 but an itching to go back. Have never been to France and since I
am half french, would love to go….where do you stay?  Where do you
fly out of?


Message/Pictures from Sharron Gottbreht Shen (59): 

The picture of Wm Gottbreht Sr and his grandchildren Anice, Bill and Lois
held by William Gottbreht. The elevator appears in good condition at the
time, circa 1923. Exploration of the old elevator was forbidden in my youth,
advice which I heeded.

The second picture is of Lois Borland Brown and her oldest child, Bill.

Sorry I did not separate these pictures before scanning! No idea how to

Folks, This is an old picture I found that was taken at one of the Ackworth School Alumni’s.

I think this picture was taken in 1992.

Dick Johnson & Rod Hiatt, I am wearing the Dunseith Centennial Belt that you guys designed and had Molded.

My Dad gave me that Belt & Buckle for my birthday in 1982. I wore that buckle, nearly everyday, for 25 years

I need to purchase another belt and start wearing it again. Gary
