Anamoose Looking Good

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAA walk around Anamoose finds a very large percentage of yards spruced up.  I can see the pride residents are taking in their community.  The nice rains we have had have helped keep the grass green.  Just this past week on Main St. Angie & Emanuel Kesler had their house painted & Bob Becker moved out his garage & looks like he is preparing for a new one.  Last night I heard that the old gold house west of the school will be torn down.

The 8 hanging baskets on Main St. resemble large round pink balls.  Linda Dusek & Janice Bucholz planted flowers in the pots on the corners, so there is lots of color as you drive down the street. Jerry Helm is watering the flowers again this year.

Mark & Corinne Engen are preparing the corner lot south of them for their new manufactured home that hopefully will  be here before school starts.  On the lot south of that Ted Mertz is putting up a garage.  Ted has also been working on the Wagner house-gutting out the inside & tearing off the garage.

SasKota Bowl

Tristin Martin was picked to play International football at Indian Head, Saskatchewantristin smaller on July 8th .  I asked his mother, Barbie, to send me some info on his game.  She sent me such a good email that I will just quote her directly.  “This was such an experience for him to get to play in an International game like this.  They had to learn how to play with the rules Canada go by, which made it very interesting.  Even though Team ND didn’t bring home the win they played a great game.  They were 5 players short from the roster of 24 players.  They played with 19 vs the Saskatchewan team of 30!  Final score was 42-34.  It rained there for 3-4 straight before the game and they had to pump water off the field as several places of the field were under water.  So it was a pretty muddy game!  I’m so glad he got the chance to play in this once in a lifetime International Game!”

Alyce Heer and Mardi Helm , the “Welcome To Anamoose Ladies” were at the home of our newest residents on 05/28/14.  The 6 member family of  Michael & Tricia Kite and children, Kelsie (17), Gavin (16), Kassidy (13), and Grant (10) come to us from Sioux Falls, SD and a year before that their home was always in North Carolina.  They came to Anamoose for Michael’s job at Butler Machinery in Minot.  He arrived in April and Tricia and the children came as soon as school was over in Sioux Falls.  They are excited about their move to the small farm south of Anamoose as it is very much like the places the parents grew up.  They have 2 beautiful horses and 2 small friendly dogs, (Maggie the poodle & Mindy the Shiatsu).  The 2 oldest kids have jobs in Harvey and Tricia and the other 2 kids are busy getting settled.  Their hobbies include; hunting, singing, cooking, horses, feeding the birds and the squirrels as well as caring for the acres of property they live on.   The children went to register for school in the fall today as well as welcoming us into their home.
