Welcome to Carrington, North Dakota!

 

Hello Everyone! I'm in the process of updating and changing the whole visual aspect of CarringtonNews.com.  If you have things you would like to see on the new site, please let me know.  Hopefully, I will be able to save a lot of the old photos and articles in a section called "Archives."  However, if there is anything you would like to save for yourself, please do it before I change over to the new version of Carrington News.  In the meantime, you can find the most current news about Carrington on my Facebook site.  Thanks to each and every one of you who have visited and voiced appreciation for this site.  Now, get ready for a facelift!  :)

Veteran's Day Celebration

Carrington - 2015

 

     We had a wonderful Veteran's Day luncheon in our small town of Carrington, North Dakota, to honor our local veterans and their families. The event was sponsored by the American Legion Ladies Auxiliary and the Veterans of Foreign Wars Auxiliary, along with help from other thoughtful ladies in the Carrington community. Marlene Boyer, president of the North Dakota American Legion Ladies Auxiliary, who helped coordinate the event, introduced some very special veterans who live in our area. It was an honor and privilege to hear from Carrington's three World War II veterans, Roland Peterson, Lorraine Schroeder, and Adam Malinski, as well as have lunch and visit with other veterans from the Korean War, the Vietnam War, Desert Storm and Afghanistan. God's blessings on all our veterans!!!

(Click here for our blog with an album of photos from Veteran's Day.)

Carrington Ag Business Tour - July 30, 2013

 

     The Carrington Ag Business Tour took place on Tuesday, July 30, visiting four ag-oriented establishments in our area: Andy Deterding Ag Aviation; NDSU Carrington Research Extension Center; Richard Zink's Wholesale Ag Products; and the Van Bedaf Dairy.

     The four ag businesses on this tour are excellent examples of ag-oriented endeavors at their best. These business owners and the staff at NDSU Carrington Research Extension Center need to be commended for the extreme effort they put into their work... and for the economic opportunities/prestige they bring to our community.

     Special thanks goes to Steve Metzger for hosting the tour and to Farm Credit Services, North Dakota Farmers Union, Arrowwood Prairie Co-op and the Carrington Convention & Visitors Bureau for making this tour possible.    

 

HAPPY AUGUST!

My name is CRUSH.  I hope you will visit Prairie Paws Rescue.

 

     If you're ready to befriend a pet for life, check out Prairie Paws Rescue, based in Jamestown.  Their mission is to rescue animals that are in harm's way and place them in loving homes.  Many of their dogs are from puppy mills - purebred or designer dogs - who have never had a special family of their own.  If you would like to be a foster parent, or if you would like to adopt a pet, please check out their website where you will find lots of friendly faces waiting for you!

From 23 states and Canada, they are a GREAT group... super interested in birds and super interesting, themselves. Listening to them made me want to participate in the event next year!
