February 2012 Dunseith Caribbean Cruise update:
Gary, Bill and Phyllis.
As of today there are 6 cabins currently booked in your NCL February 2012 group cruise. They are:
Gary Stokes, Bill Grimme, Bill’s sister Gwen, Margaret Leonard, Mel & Bev Hamnes and Bev’s daughter Deborah.
All cabins have the lower cruise price and all were sent an email advising this.
I’m sure that many others will be booking their cabins in the months to follow.
(yes Gary you are correct if anyone cancels before 11.18.11 NCL will refund their cruise deposit).
Thank you and best regards,

Thank you Gina for this update and the hefty price reduction for our cabin that I received with a personal message from you.
Folks, Please call Gina to make your reservation. I believe NCL is offering some great deals if you book this month. Gina has all the details and will give you the best package deal they have to offer at the time of your booking.
Our Alaska cruise was a blast. This one will be equally as fun and enjoyable. We had 64 folks on the Alaska cruise. We are expecting a much larger group for this Caribbean cruise.
We are looking forward to seeing many of you in Caribbean on this cruise.

Just wanted to let you know I received this twice.
I can’t believe the snow in these pictures-Totally amazing.
Hope everything is going great and I want to wish everyone a happy and healthly New Year.
I agree with Dwight that was a tragic crime in Tucson and I feel for all the families Involved and especially for the family and friend’s of Christina Green. Being a mother I can’t imagine the pain they must be in at this time.

Thank you Marie, I just checked and the first group of folks I send this daily message to got it twice. I just forwarded it to them.
Folks, If you get these daily messages twice, I have probably screwed up having sent it to your list twice. If this should happen, please let me know. I have you folks on 7 distribution list. I am limited to 99 folks with each list. Gary
Henry Sunderland/Ed Milligan Picture:
From Neola Kofoid Garbe: Bottineau & Minot, ND
I THINK this might have been taken somewhere in the Peace Garden years ago, but I’m not sure. I think the dedication was in 1934/35.
The only person I can name is Ed Milligan. Other men are familiar to me, but I can’t put a name on them. It’s not a big deal–just thought some of you mkgnt like to see the picture.
Neola, I recognize Henry Sunderland with the suit.
Do any of you recognize any of the other folks in this picture? Was this taken at the Peace Garden? What was the occasion. Gary
Wesley Schneider Celebrated his 90th and fractured his wrist.
Message from Vickie Metcalfe (70): Bottineau, ND
Gary and friends,
Our friend celebrated his 90th birthday recently with various comins and goins of friends and family, so me and the boys stayed away.
Then, we got word. one week ago this past Tuesday Wes tripped and fractured his right wrist while guiding Ovidia over a step. He is getting along fine, but is often frustrated that he can’t chop the kindling wood to build his fire, or wash dishes. If he had his druthers he’d take off the splint and throw away. But is advised to keep it in place and Ovidia watches him carefully.
Tonight the boys who consider Wes their very own “God Father of treats” were delighted to stop in to see him and Ovidia their very “God Mother who buys special treats” for visiting dogs.
I told Wes I will call him “Lefty” for now and gave him the stern teacher lecture about giving his wrist time to heal. And, a special note to the nephews. We still are fixin to write a “Jail Bird Tale”
Until later. Vickie
Charlie Carbonneau’s Picture
From Neola Kofoid Garbe: Bottineau & Minot, ND
Hi Bottineau Bunch/Others,
I’m sure many of you remember Charlie Carbonneau. His sister, Ann, is married to David O’Connell, member of ND legislature.
As I’ve written on the picture, Charlie is married to Sharon/Shari Monson from Bottineau. Sharon’s siblings are Elaine, Dennis, Glen, and Marvin. Their younger sister, Donna Monson Seeman passed away a few years ago.
Charlie, Sharon, (Pat Corbin Miller and others) were in Wally’s 7th/8th grade class in Bottineau. I’m going to send Wally’s class’ picture and Mrs. Renick’s class’ picture when I return to Minot.
P.S. Hi, Shari/Charlie.
Charlie’s mother is Carol Watkins Carbonneau (46).
Many of you know and are related to Charlie.
Thank you Neola for sharing.
