Moms in Touch

1st Three Mondays of Each Month

5-6pm

Would you like an opportunity to pray for your children and grandchildren? (college age included!)  Moms in touch is an opportunity to pray for our children, their teachers, and other school concerns.  We stand shoulder to shoulder in great anticipation of what God will do on behalf of the children and schools of the world.  Our children face much pressure in life and prayer is the best gift we can give them! Let's help "fill the gap" for our children.

Moms in Touch will meet from 5-6pm at Lenore Franchuk's home on the first three Mondays of each month. Lori Cook (652-2049) is the contact person if you have any questions.

Erickson Implement Honors Brad Weber

 

(Brad is pictured here with his sons during a visit the Grand

Island, NE  plant where one of his combines was being built.)

 

Sometimes in the course of doing business, you are lucky enough to meet someone so loyal to your business, your brand, and your employees that they become more than a customer….they become a friend. For Erickson Implement, this person was Brad Weber.

Brad was a knowledgeable and hardworking farmer who took pride in his family, his farm, and his RED equipment.

Brad passed away on October 30th at the age of 52. He will be remembered in various ways by everyone who had the good fortune of knowing him. At Erickson Implement, we will remember Brad as a valued customer, trusted friend, and staunch supporter of all things Case IH.

Ceremony Honoring John Paulson,

World War II Veteran

Saturday, October 29th - 1pm

Veteran's Memorial Site

Carrington Cemetery

 

     John Paulson, one of the original 164th Infantry Division who served in WWII, was honored in a special ceremony on Saturday, October 29th, at the Carrington Cemetery.

 

John Paulson accepts U.S. flag and honorary documents

from Bernie Wagner, past commander as well as friend.

 

      John was one of the North Dakota National Guard infantrymen who landed on Guadalcanal in 1942 (as part of the first U.S. Army unit to engage in offensive action during World War II) where he served our country for two years.  By the end of the war, John had earned the Bronze Star for his bravery and courage.

 

Coat of Arms - 164th Infantry Regiment

Motto:  I Am Ready

 

      During this special ceremony at the Veterans' Memorial site, John was presented with a United States flag which has been certified (by Alan M. Hantman, Architect of the Capitol, FAIA) as having been flown over the United States Capitol in 2007.

 

Veterans' Memorial - Carrington, ND - which John helped build when he came home from World War II

 

     Along with this certified flag, John was presented with a beautifully inscribed document which states in part:
     "Today we will present to you a symbol that was conceived over 200 years ago by the hands of Betsy Ross; her serving basket was its cradle. If it could talk, it might say...
     "They call me Old Glory and rightfully so for I was born many-many years ago. I've flown the world over, and made conquests in space. I have been placed on the moon for all mankind to praise. I have watched brave men and women die to protect my dignity and grace. I stand in many rooms with men and women such as you , who take off their hats and hands, cover their hearts when I come into view. Now I am about to be placed in your hands I feel great pride for I know you understand about the great men, the bold, and brave, the founders of freedom that lie in a grave. Who brought to this Nation a concept quite new: liberty, justice and equality, too. So take me and fly me as often as you can to let everyone know you are proud of this land."

 


    This special ceremony (arranged by his nephew, Richard Paulson, in honor of John's 90th birthday) was attended by John's wife, Tolly, two sons, Miles and Doug, Richard Paulson's family, other relatives and members of the Carrington community.  It was an honor to be present and to shake the hand of one of our country's heroes.

 

 

 

Happy 50th Anniversary!

Dr. Don and Bonnie (Berge) Nicolson

 

     The children and grandchildren would love to honor their loving parents on their 50th Wedding Anniversary, October 14, 2011.
     Don and Bonnie are both 1959 Carrington High School graduates. They also graduated from the University of North Dakota in 1964. They were married at Trinity Lutheran Church in Carrington on October 14, 1961.

 

 

     After serving 3 years in the Army as a Physician and obtaining the rank of Major (Valley Forge and Fort Bliss), Don established his Children’s Specialty Clinic in Mesa, Arizona from 1973 –2006, where he, not only found sunshine, but continued his Specialty in Pediatrics.
     They have five children, Don Allen, Kaelyn, Brian, Denise, and Josh. As if an entire Pediatric office of children was not enough, they now are doting their 11 grandchildren, Don Allen, Jr., Beaux, Kourtni, Daelon, Drew, Carter, Marlena, Brynn, Addison, Sedona, and Daisy on a daily basis.

 

 

     Bonnie has been a remarkable mom, grandma, and care taker, as well. She has been a devoting mother, President of Mesa American Little League (while pregnant with Josh at

41), and the best grandmother a child could wish for.
     They reside in Chandler, Arizona with some land (unlike North Dakota land) in Flagstaff, Arizona, and a ranch house in Cliff, New Mexico.
     Please help us to celebrate the incredible years of marriage of these two amazing people!! We love you Mom, Dad, Grandma and Grandpa Nic!!!!

 

Note from the Editor:  10/05/11 - I was delighted to receive the above announcement from some very thoughtful children and grandchildren.  Not only was I touched by their article, but it made me realize that I need to create a place on CarringtonNews.Com for special announcements such as theirs.  I will be working on that idea for the future, and would like to invite people to email me with their announcements.  (Sincere thanks, Judy Keller)

 

 

Happy Birthday, Dolly!
