Dunseith Baskeball Team:
Reply from Janice LaCroix Kester (59): Fargo, ND
In answer to the question of whether there was a girls basketball team in Dunseith – yes, there certainly was in the early to middle 50’s at least. There was Millie Grem, Joanne Kester Boucher, Elaine Schneider, Marlene Schneider, Ellen Graff, Arlene Lamoureau I think and I can’t remember anymore. I’m sure there is people out there who can give a more detailed list of players. Thank you so much Gary! You are unbelievable in the way you have kept this blog going!

From Vickie Metcalfe (70): Bottineau, ND
Today I zipped into the Family Bakery for soup to go.
Kenrose and Bob.were eating dinner. I was delighted to see them
because they are always so happy and enjoy even a little visit. I
hadn’t seen them since before Thanksgiving.
Bob told me, “This past week he was very sick. He was very
dizzy, so he telephoned Mark Bernstein (Joanne Millang’s husband).
Mark drove he and Kenrose into Bottineau. Bob ended up staying in
the Bottineau hospital for over two days. Kenrose was very
concerned about him and was able to stay at the hospital in Bobs
room. She said the staff at St.Andrews took very good care of Bob.
And were very good to her too. While away from the farm, Loren
DuBois came over and cared for the dogs. Bob and Kenrose were so
grateful for the friendship of Mark Bernstein, & Loren Dubois and
the care of the Bottineau Hospital Staff!
Bob now will go into Minot these next few weeks for further testing.
I asked Bob if I could let Gary Stokes and the folks on the
Dunseith blog know about his recent stay in the hospital. Bob said,
that it was fine with him. Kenrose said,” Why wouldn’t it be? I
said to Kenrose because some folks get upset about people knowing
their stuff” She said, “Hmm, she did not mind at all that Gary
posted her birthday information, she received over 30 birthday cards
and was was happy to hear from everyone! Bob was happy that folks
would be interested in him.

Outstanding Pictures! I really do not want to recover from the high of Stokes/Thompson/Pritchard entries. Thank you – pictures are truly worth a thousand words. And I would add that the Hanson/Pritchard romance is surely the right “thousand”. Thank you Dorothy Pritchard and Mary Knutson. In browsing old issues of the Turtle Mt Star I have noted items about Norman Pritchard but never enough of his career and destiny. Would Dale or Dorothy sing of Norman? Thanks Gary. Sharron
