Library Open House - 2008

 

     On Tuesday, April 15th, our Carrington City Library celebrated National Library Week. It was a cozy, inviting scene, with comfy chairs, yummy treats and pleasant hostesses.  Lenore Franchuk, our City Librarian, welcomed everyone as Donna Dunn and Illa Zink, two of our Library Board members, chatted with visitors.

 

Donna Dunn, a library board member, sits in a cozy corner of the library as she greets visitors.

 

     As visitors looked at the antique radio collection, and browsed through the books that were for sale, Mrs. Franchuk explained that their online library service connects Carrington to a seemingly  unlimited source of books and reference materials.  For people who love books and hands-on reading and research, the Carrington City Library is definitely the place to be!

 

Illa Zink helps serve visitors while community members chat and look at books.

 

 

The Carrington Health Center Ladies Auxiliary Put Together a Great

Taco-in-a-Bag Luncheon!

 On Thursday, April 17th, 2008, the CHC volunteers were cheerful, organized and helpful as they served their customers... and the food was YUMMY!

 

Friends visited and enjoyed a meal together at the Holy Family Villa.  Families brought their children for lunch.  Take-out meals were constantly streaming out the door.  It was a great success!  The Ladies Auxiliary would like to thank everyone for supporting their Relay for Life efforts.

Holy Family Villa Activity Room

 

We hope you didn't miss the Taco-In-A-Bag event sponsored by the Carrington Health Center Auxiliary!  The taco salads were great, and the home-made dessert bars were absolutely scrumptious!  As you can see from the pictures below, there were lots of happy faces and satisfied customers.  The Auxiliary ladies need to be commended for putting together another successful event and for donating their time and efforts for such a good cause... contributing to the hospital and the Family Villa.

Holiday Hospitality at

the Federated Church - 2008

 

We hope you didn't miss the Federated Church's Holiday Fair Luncheon for the community. There were pleasant, cheerful greetings from ladies throughout the room.  The service was superb, and the food was perfect for a cold day in Carrington - hot soup, a sandwich, and delicious home-made pie. From the crowds coming and going throughout the luncheon, it looks like the event was a great success!  Thank you, members of the church, for a lovely lunch!

 

Pleasant greetings from church members...

 

Pleasant atmosphere and lots of good food...

VALENTINE COOKIES!!

(Pre-Order by February 8th) - 2009

The Carrington Health Center Auxiliary is making and selling bunches of frosted Valentine Cookies again this year.  Last year it was such a huge success that Auxiliary volunteers had to make a lot more cookies at the last minute. So, please help them out by pre-ordering ($6/dozen).  You will be happy with the size and quality of the cookies, and just think - all the money goes for a good cause. Just call Dorothy at 652-7194 to place your order and find out when to pick them up at the Holy Family Villa.

 

Take a look at last year's Cookie Frosting Workshop.  If Auxiliary Volunteers want to join the fun on February 11th at 9 a.m. and help frost this year's cookies, just let Dorothy know.

MEMORIAL DAY

May 31st - 2010

 

 

LET'S DISPLAY OUR AMERICAN FLAGS!

 

 

     The Memorial Day Program starts this year at 11:00 a.m. at the cemetery with Todd Ingegretson (VFW Post #3524) presiding.  In the event of rain, the program will be held at Trinity Lutheran Church.  The Memorial Day address will be given by Chet Pollert, our State representative. KDAK will broadcast the ceremonies live.  This is a program well worth attending in honor of loved ones. After the ceremony, all participants are invited to a noon luncheon at the CrossRoads Golf Course (courtesy of the VFW Auxiliary).

 

Note:  Did you know that the "National Moment of Remembrance" was created in 1997?  'Taps' is at 3 p.m. throughout America to honor the contributions of our dead soldiers. All Americans are encouraged to pay respect to them by keeping silent for one minute in their memory at 3:00 p.m.
 

"And I'm proud to be an American, where at least I know I'm free, and I won't forget the men who died, who gave that right to me and I'll proudly stand next to him to defend her still today, 'cuz there ain't no doubt I love this land, god bless the USA." -Lee Greenwood
