Good day folks,

I don’t have any posting this morning, so I will share this picture of our Twin Grandson’s with you.

The picture of the twins was taken this past January.

The Picture with Bernie and Lorelie with the twins was taken on their first Birthday in September last year.

Warning -Face Book Virus

Folks, I got zapped with a virus from Face Book. My McAfee Virus software warned me, but I trusted the source and opened it. In doing that, the virus sent weird messages to all my friends in Face Book. I learned my lesson. I seldom, if ever, send messages via Face Book. Please do not open any messages in Face Book that have come from me. I have not sent them. Gary

Janice Metcalfe Poitra

Farewell from Vickie Metcalfe (70): Bottineau, ND.

Gary, When we said farewell to Janice today we were reminded by her
daughter Kelly,of how much she loved the lyrics of The Mull of
Kintyre. Fitting lyrics to see her off. Love and fond farewell my
dear cousin. Vickie

Archie & Shan Metcalfe, Jay Vanorny, Chris OlsonKevin St.Clare & David
Fugere were pall bearers. Elaine played the guitar and sang “This
Little Light of Mine”. Inside the funeral program were the lyrics to
“The Mull of Kintyre, a favorite song of Janice.
Travis, Debbie, Jake, Mike and Melissa Metcalfe flew in from Arizona.
It was a bright cool but sunny fall day. She and Kathy rest side by
side now. Her grandson, Joss kept everyone entertained. After the
church luncheon, We cousins, gathered at Kelvin Clinic, hosted by
Raphael, Jaime and Kelly. Where grandson, Joss kept everyone
entertained. Oh for the heart of child! He and and his sister
Kennedy were Janice’”hearts delight!” Vickie

Oops I cannot forget Dick & Brenda and Ron Hett who also played at
todays funeral. Ron played the mandolin which Janice also played,
among other instruments. V.

Gary….I do not use facebooks much and will use it even less after your warning…

The account was set up by one of my daughters….and I seldom use it…

So would guess that the messages on facebook were not from you…

Thanks for the tip..

Keep up the good work…enjoy reading about the old gang from the former Dunseith…It is not the same place today…Someone said the the San Haven has changed a lot…and I would say the same about Dunseith…

Dear Gary,

I haven’t responded to the batch of emails you sent to me and those on Face
Book, since I think there’s a hoax (or worse) going. So if you really sent
those emails, please reply to this email with what ever it was you said.
Kinda crazy stuff going on – several from Jim Kester, too, and others.

By the way, can you get any information on the DHS play that I know Colette,
Evie, Dale, and I (to name a few) were in. I think it was “Fun on the Run”
or something like that – should have been 1963 or 64. I wonder if anyone has
the script.

Thank you so much. I had the chance to look at some of the pictures you all
took on your cruise – looks like you had a whale of a time!

To the Robert Family,

I am so sorry for your loss. I always remember how kind your mother was to me growing up.

San Haven

Reply from Don Martel (Former DHS Principle): Rosemount, MN

Brenda Hoffman, what a wonderful story that was about living at the San. Being a kid from Rolette, we would usually make a tour through the San on our way to the Peace Garden. This would happen only about once or twice a summer. It was always a mystical place to me as we were never allowed to get out of the car, for fear we might catch TB. As I recall it was always so neat and well groomed.

I have always had a fascination with it, but never had the opportunity to actually visit any of the buildings. Several pictures of San Haven can be found by googling ‘San Haven’.

I wonder how many people on the blog were connected to the San, either as a patient or employee.

Pictures form Margaret Seim Lawston (54): Citrus Heights, CA

Sent by Dick Johnson (68): Dunseith, ND.

Gary and Friends,

I will send some of the pictures sent to me by Margaret Seim Lawston.
These were some of her mother, Eva Seim’s collection. There are several
pages and I will post more as time allows. I think these are cute and
really brings back early school memories from our days in the old white
school building.These are from 1958.
