Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!!!!  It’s the wearing of the green, shamrocks, drinking green beer, corned beef and cabbage, etc.  Hope everyone has a festive day.  I can hardly believe it, but 27 years ago I was in New York City on St. Patrick’s Day watching the parade.  A friend and I were staying with another friend in Connecticut and we rode the train into New York City.  At 8:00 AM the people on the train were already celebrating!!!!!!  As we were watching the parade in NYC, there were many policemen on horseback trying to control the crowd.  It’s one of my many experiences that I will never forget.

This weekend was another snowy, cold weekend, but today is sunny.  And in a few days, the temps will be in the 40’s and melting the snow again.  We have really had some good moisture this winter.  Several weeks ago when it was melting, there was very little run off - - so good for sub moisture.

Congratulations to the Glen Ullin / Hebron Girls Basketball team.  They were District Champions, Region Champions and onto the State Tournament.  What memorable times for all of you.  Audrey Duppong, a member of our OLD RED TRAIL Volunteer Committee, has two daughters on this team.  Congratulations to two towns along the OLD RED TRAIL.

As I’m looking at all the snow, I’m reminding all of you that it is only a couple months until the 6th Annual OLD RED TRAIL Rummage Sale.  It is 100 miles long and covers all the towns from Mandan to Dickinson.  There will be many, many sales on Saturday, June 3, 2017 and lots of treasures, food, and goodies.  Do make your plans to have a sale and for all others to come on out and find that hidden gem.

Registration forms for the sale will be available the first part of May.

At our last OLD RED TRAIL meeting, Ben Kubischta  showed us his presentation of the Sheyenne River Valley National Scenic Byway.  Oh, how interesting and a great job, Ben.  This Byway is one of 10 Byways in North Dakota.  Ben is a member of our Volunteer Committee and is available to show this presentation to groups in the area.

Remember - - - -Rummage sale on June 3, 2017

Until next time, Be Well, Do Good Works, and see you on the OLD RED TRAIL.
