If you haven't done so already, I'd like to invite you to take a look throughout my website/blog, CarringtonNews

.Com.  It's basically a guide to Carrington and the surrounding areas - obviously not a real newspaper, like the Foster County Independent. It's a site that I just do for fun – not money.  People are able to place free ads in the classified and real estate sections, and I don’t charge for links to business websites.

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.

Thanks for coming!

 

 

    

     A big THANK YOU to all the birders who gathered in Carrington this last week!    We are so happy that you appreciate our awesome variety of birds! 

 

It was fun meeting with birders who gathered at the Putnam House after a week of participating in our Potholes & Prairie Birding Festival. 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! All in all they seemed very pleased with their tours and their birding adventures. We wish them all safe trips home and hope to see many of them again next year!
